This cartoon presents a scene where corrupt machine politics, criminal trusts, and their corporate lawyers "defend" the Constitution from unseen attackers. The cartoonist may be arguing that these dishonest groups stand in the way of constitutional and legislative change. They keep the status quo in place, all while in the guise of American revolutionary patriots.
