Bishop liked comparing himself to historical figures, both to inflate his own importance and to evoke feelings of patriotism. In this leaflet he portrays himself as a modern Paul Revere, not just warning Americans about the dangers of addictive substances but also tying the fight against them to the military and political future of the country. During the Cold War many proxy battles were fought against Communism. Bishop applies the language of political freedom to the liberation from addiction; he considers both moral imperatives. Religious, political, and historical influences converge in this leaflet, which is representative of Bishop’s entire campaign.
