The “infamy speech” itself became infamous for the array of devastation that it brought about to the world. And while FDR’s speech was successful in persuading the public to rally behind him and the military, one can sit back knowing what we know now and wonder what the world would be like if this one piece of writing would have never been brought to the congressional floor all those years ago in such an unstable time in our country 's history. We can now see the effect this one, 7 minute speech, has had on not just our country but the world as a whole and why it has stayed such an “infamous” speech throughout the

Edwin Sutherland Aaron Walker Georgia Gwinnett College Sutherland considered differential association to be a general sociological theory of criminal behavior. Sutherland became suspicious of theories that related poverty to crime, believing that police statistics were biased when they showed that most crimes occurred in poor and lower-class neighborhoods in the city. After 20 years of grueling research, Sutherland finally completed a book reporting his findings. The finalized version of White Collar Crime appeared in 1949; a restored edition was not published until 1983. Sutherland came to believe that numerous factors like race, age, and gender cannot in themselves explain criminal behavior.

Alger Hiss was a United States government official and government official Whittaker Chambers eventually threw Hiss under the bus leading Hiss to be “the central symbol in America’s struggle over domestic communism” (17). Hiss tried denying multiple times that the accusations were lies and he was innocent of anything Chambers implied but “on January 21 1950, a jury found Hiss, and attorney with a once-promising career in the State Department, guilty on two counts of perjury - for having lied about his Communist connections in the 1930’s” (17). This eventually sent Hiss to be in a federal penitentiary for four years and also his testimony exposed many politicians such as Richard Nixon and the New Deal. I found this event interesting as Alger Hiss was actually never found guilty of having Communist ties and everything known as of that time were just speculations. I also found this interesting as the Hiss case also exposed many other politicians and associations but those people were never mentioned to be questioned or tried to
