The past... and recent history...

Mr. Natural asks, "Does this WW 2 poster remind you of anything in recent history?"

The poster is by Ben Shahn, 1942, and was originally printed by the Government Printing Office for the Office of War Information and is an image in the realm of the power of persuasion...

The image is familiar, but I'm not sure the underlying story is close to recent history.
