This type of obedience, although it is created from religion, uses the court to implement what they want done. The people confuse the common man with evil and to obey the wishes of God, the people must attack the source. This is clearly seen in the Red Scare, but the American people were not in fear of God, they were in fear of politics, or the government in general. The proof is in the statement, “A young Senator named Joseph McCarthy made a public accusation that more than two hundred “card-carrying” communists had infiltrated the United States government causing fear” (McCarthyism). They too attacked the source of fear, which they claimed to be Communism, but just like the witch hunters claimed the source to be the Devil.
The fight seems never ending and it appears that there may never be an end to it. All Reagan really did was close a chapter in the book of the cold war but there are still many unread stories and chapters. The collapse certainly did not mean the end of the cold war although many American history books will have you believe this. The Soviets could not keep up with their countries and states so they decided to secede and collapse the union which left Gorbachev to resign and watch the Union go. They were constantly criticized by the US for their flawed system and called it an “evil empire”.
These accusations caused loss in Hollywood business because Americans began to be fearful that Hollywood was communist and they didn 't want to give any of their money to people who were not of what they believed. Even though some believe that HUAC was the main cause to the Red Scare, I believe Senator Joseph McCarthy caused more of a scare due to his accusations of the United States State Department and government. With all of the events that took place during this time, they all added up to cause a scare in America at the time. I believe that McCarthy was the main cause of the Red Scare because of his accusations of many American people. McCarthy accused American citizens as well as the United States government while HUAC only accused Hollywood
Kennedy took a different, more violent approach in confining, and overall stopping the spread of communism. Truman said in his University of Washington Speech that money would be sent to any country that needed financial support in combating communism (Kennedy). In addition to this, he had the same views for military aid. His mission was to support any country fighting communism with the proper weapons if the Soviet Union were to attack (Kennedy). The biggest contrast between Kennedy and the other two presidents was that Kennedy was not afraid of war.
The cartoon also directly refers to the yellow peril of their Asian enemy, ‘I’ve never seen a Jap that wasn’t yeller’ (4:20). The use of racial discriminations by the government attempted to change the people of America’s perception on the Japanese, ultimately controlling how everyone thinks and feels. The American government thrived on the idea of dehumanizing the Japanese, the buckteeth and small, slanted eyes acting as animalistic features. The propaganda reveals the tension and fear of the conflict between the two countries. By instilling fear into the people of America, it prompted the whole nation to hate the
(Gerard et al 58) He was seen as “ another or worse Fidel Castro” by the CIA. (Namikas 146) If he stayed in power, communism would take over the country which would be a global disaster, as thought by the CIA director. (Villafaña 6) Turned to the United States and the Soviet Union because he did not trust Belgium to help for the independence (Namikas
Right away Hoover did not like King and thought he was influenced by communists. Hoover lost even more respect for King when he called the FBI completely ineffective in resolving the mayhem inflicted upon the negroes in the south. King then came in contact with communists which gave Hoover a reason to spy on him. Hoover set up wiretaps
First off domestically, before the Cold War the U.S. was loose with their domestic policy but after it they were very strict with their domestic policy. The U.S. formed the House of Un-American Activities, which checked just about every foreign person for them being a spy. This action made every foreigner a suspect. On top of that the HUAC would attack anyone in their way and claim it was justified because they feared the Communists invading their nation. So domestic wise the
Reflection of this conflict was apparent in the American ethos, in which Americans feared that if “world communism captur[ed] any American state…a new and perilous front…will increase the danger to the entire free world and require even greater sacrifices from the American people” (Document B). As illustrated by Eisenhower, “the hysteria” of communism propagating into American society and threatening the American way of life was a very prevalent fear at the forefront of the Cold War (Document A). McCarthyism, a system established by Senator Joseph McCarthy in which he made unsubstantiated accusations of subversion or treason to America, acted as the culmination of this hysteria, directly reflecting the sentiments driving the American people. Eisenhower did not engage in any domestic policies to quell these “multiplicity of fears” (Document A). Instead he compounded them with legislation such as the “National System of Interstate and Defense Highways…connect[ing] 209 of the 247 cities having a population of 50,00 more and [serving as] the country’s principal…defense” (Document D).
The placement of Brutus and Cassius is due to their sins of treason. Regardless of the fact that Brutus and Cassius existed before Christianity and should have been placed in limbo, their sins of treason determined their place in hell. Sins of treason harm the government and the reputation of the society as a whole, therefore, sins of treason is the ultimate sin. As the emperor of Rome at the height of its power, Caesar was considered to be the perfect manifestation of a strong government. He was an authoritarian figure that can influence society and order.
