In fact, Joseph McCarthy himself suffered this consequence: “It was his clash with the Army that would lead to his downfall” (Robert 3). By accusing the Army of treason, he lost respect in the population and bad opinions spread around, ruining his power streak.This risk prevented these kinds of people from succumbing to actions that would sabotage their reputation.
