Annotation

Protection had guaranteed high employment and good wages, which led to a better educated and better housed, fed, and clothed work force. Free trade was adopted by Congress and produced a depression, unemployment, and hunger. Protection is re-established, but the U. S. was weak militarily and was attacked by Yucatan, who landed on Coney Island. The American people responded, fought back, won, and thus guaranteed the eutopia possible through protection.
