One group that came under heavy fire were women, more specifically mothers. The belief was that bad mothers exposed their children making them significantly more susceptible to the threat of communism. In Philip Wylie’s book “Generation of Vipers”, he wrote an entire chapter entitled “Common Women” that addressed the threats of ambitious women and unfit mothers. Hollywood also brought public attention to these threats in several films, one of the most well known of these films is The Manchurian Candidate. 1The Manchurian Candidate focused on the public’s fear of communists brainwashing Americans.
Bush and his administration in reference to the United States of America post-9/11 policies. to place it more accurately, he argues that the Bush administration skillfully used the shock that affected the country once the fear attacks, so as to attain its own goals, as well as the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author stands on the bottom that the United States of America authorities used mass media as means that of pressure on the mass audience. Moreover, media served as suggests that of psychological pressure on Americans since they accelerated the worry that flooded minds and souls of American individuals. At a similar time, the author implies that American’ reasoning skills were much unfit due to the overwhelming power of mass media that bombarded the consciousness of American citizens with terrible news and even additional terrible forecasts regarding the longer term of the USA (Gore, 2007).
To begin with, In Fahrenheit 451 Bradbury shows how the government is controlling their society with surveillance. It shows how the government is abusing the hound by making it watch everyone 's every move and controlling everyone 's lives. This theme is not only shown in the book but also in our modern day society. It’s shown when Montag said, "That 's sad," because all we put into it is hunting and finding and killing. What a shame if that 's all it can ever know."
The removing of family in Anthem’s society made it a way in making sure there was no type of love of feelings. Equality stated, “Children are born each winter, but women never see their children and children never know their parents” (Rand, pg. 41). This is a cruel way of removing of families because the government takes away the parents child and separates them where family is not even a thing. This is an example of the society making people individuality because they don’t have a choice.
E. L. Doctorow’s text, The Book of Daniel, is full of spectacles that are intertwined with war. Spectacles are used in wars for two reasons: to inspire and to instil fear in others. Daniel uses fear spectacles to gain power is his war in the home. He renders his wife and child powerless in the spectacles he uses against them.

Iran's and Guatemala's lack of capabilities placed them at the bottom of the state's system, whereas the United States occupied the peak of the triangle. From the moment John Foster Dulles took over as Secretary of State his top priority was to remove the democratically elected government if Iran, as well as its Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh. Thus, the United States status as a superpower allowed the Dulles Brothers to remove the head of the states to satisfy their interests in each of the countries. In the words of Thucydides "the strong do what they can, and the weak do what they must." The Dulles Brothers wanted for America to have control over states that had potential to resort to communism, and in order to keep the Soviet Union's ideology from gaining popularity America had to take advantage of the states system
The Answer is that people behind Gilead make all of their moves calculated and their most powerful weapon is fear. They play with the idea of fear starting from the very beginning which is the takeover of the government. Gilead starts to form with religious extremist groups wanting to save America from what it had become. Therefore, Gilead is based on religion. Bertrand Russell, a British philosopher, says "Religion is based primarily and mainly upon fear...
I strongly agree with Robert’s argument. For sure, McCarthyism leads Americans to clash with each other through hysteria, psychological warfare, and self-preservation. Clearly, the conflict between Americans existed because McCarthyism inflected hysteria. One reason for this is the discovery of Communist spies who were suspected of leaking information on nuclear technology which planted fear in the American population. For example, Robert explains, “Anxiety over a
Ben Little notes, “Susan 's state and its brutality drives Rosemary Almond to desperation and a conviction that her only course of action is the assassination of its leader.”(Constructing the Reader 's Perspective in V for Vendetta).
