The Wizard of Oz is a story for the USA

Bill Haschke recently wrote “History is great at increasing understanding.”

The Wizard of Oz has been a family favorite movie since its beginning in the late 1930’s. It holds all the makings of a classic – good vs evil, fantasy to reality, flawed characters developing new strengths, and a journey into the unknown. Over the years I’ve enjoyed the movie with my family many times.

In a recent FB post there was a YouTube video link to a documentary by Bill Still about the real meanings of the Wizard of Oz. I know of Bill Still from his YouTube reporting videos and think that he’s a serious reporter. If you are concerned about the future of the USA then you need to have a perspective on USA history. I give you; The secret of Oz.
