Penny Sycamore: Ism-Mania?
Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Yeah, sure, you know, Communism, Fascism, Voodooism, everybody's got an -ism these days.
Penny Sycamore: Oh, [laughs] I thought it was an itch or something.
Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Well, it's just as catching. When things go a little bad nowadays, you go out, get yourself an -ism and you're in business.
Grandpa Vanderhoff continues by recommending "Americanism": "Let 'em know something about Americans: John Paul Jones, Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, Lincoln, Grant, Lee, Edison, Mark Twain. When things got tough for those boys, they didn't run around looking for -isms."
I'm not an American, but I agree with the general sentiment; people should knock off the "Ism-Mania" and see to their own business, their own families, and their own lives.
