Most notably, the Sherman Antitrust Act was passed in 1890, which stated that “Every contract, combination in the form of trust or otherwise, or conspiracy, in restraint of trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, is hereby declared to be illegal,” according to ourdocuments.gov. Those who broke this law were to be charged with a misdemeanor and could serve up to a year in prison and/or be charged with a fine of up to $5,000. Though the law was passed in order to bust trusts, the courts rarely ever enacted it for such a purpose, because judges could interpret what constituted as “trade or commerce among the several States.” Instead, the Sherman Antitrust Act was used mostly to bust unions, as they were considered to be illegal combinations in the eyes of the courts (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2017). This is just one example of how the government tended not to regulate industry and market capitalism during this time period. Another example is the Interstate Commerce Act.

After World War II, tensions arose between Russia, then known as the USSR, and the United States. This tension and the events that followed came to be called the Cold War, one of its main events being the Second Red Scare. The Second Red Scare was more destructive than the first.

The privacy violations Americans experience today are similar to the privacy violations in 1984 because of surveillance, tracking, and the technology. Nineteen-eighty four uses surveillance to keep an eye on the people of Oceania at all times. For example, Orwell writes “any sound that Winston made, above the level of a low whisper, could be picked up by the telescreen… he could be seen as well as heard” (Orwell, pg. 3).

Both situations lead to tension in society and people turning their backs against each other. In “Are You Now or Were You Ever?”, also written by Arthur Miller, the online article discusses the reasons to why Miller wrote the book such as the similarities to the Communist Party in America to the Salem Witch Trials, play scripts, actors, and the paranoia in society.
15 Project Twinkle Ufologists believe green fireballs to be among the best documented examples of unidentified flying objects to date. Since the late 1940’s hundreds of people have reported seeing mysterious green balls of light in the night sky, particularly over the state of New Mexico in the U.S. The military decided to investigate the matter further as the objects often appeared over military and research installations. They launched Project Twinkle in December 1949 to study the balls in hopes of identifying them. At first the research seemed to indicate that the balls were artificial, perhaps even some sort of Soviet surveillance, but after two years the project was shut down and it was announced that the balls had been identified as natural phenomenon.
