aka Democracy, the Vision Restored Henry Fortune (J.H. Gilmore) is having a discussion with his two grandsons, the pragmatic David (William Nigh, who also directed) and John, who is a dreamer (Leslie Austin). The subject is capital versus labor, and David elects to work alongside his grandfather, the monopolistic owner of a company. John, meanwhile, goes into the service. He returns, firm in his understanding that war is completely futile. But when he discovers that David has stolen his wife, Mary (Maurine Powers), he responds with his fists flying. David, who is miserable in his autocratic position, reunites David and Mary, and proves he has learned his lesson in more ways than one. The moral behind this preachy propaganda film had something to do with industrial democracy being the way to avoid both capitalism and "bolshevism" (read communism), with a bit of an anti-war message thrown in besides.
