In Congress, Nixon was able to secure a Senate seat by implying that the opposing candidate was a Communist sympathizer because she voted against the HUAC. Nixon accused Alger Hiss, a convicted former spy for the Soviets, and pressed the HUAC to go further into the investigations until Alger Hiss was proven guilty. This investigation gave Nixon a national reputation and he was labeled as a young star. The views of Nixon made him acceptable to east and west in the early 1950s. However, Nixon was a man that would go to extreme lengths and tricks if it achieved political success.

Many of us [veterans] were maimed and crippled for life. In 1932 we get the bullets and gas of the police, as we did in Washington, and the troops, which Hoover called put against us.
Their job was to decide if any measure of the New Deal did not agree with the American Constitution so it could be denied. Since they were Republican, they had a natural resentment at the New Deal and found the NIRA and the AAA (Agricultural Adjustment Agency) unconstitutional. After his second election, Roosevelt made some bad, public decisions like trying to ‘pack the court’ by attempting to appoint six judges who would vote in his favour. Interestingly, the Supreme Court voted in favour of some policies of the New Deal like pensions in the Social Security Act. There was minor opposition from within the Democratic Party as well.

The Philosophical Control in North Korea In the year 1903, English novelist, journalist and author Eric Arthur Blair was born, though better known today by his pen name, George Orwell. Orwell may be best known for his piece, 1984, written in the year 1949 and about the possible struggles that man will face through the current trends in time. 1984 was heavily influenced by the events of World War II, and the political and military figureheads such as Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, along with groups and events like the Hitler youth or the Stalin purges. Those were some connections to the real world prior to the writing of 1984, but what about after the publication of the novel? Can dystopian themes and connections to 1984 be found in the
10. Styles Bridges Styles Bridges, a Republican Senator from New Hampshire from 1937 until his death in 1961, was an uncommonly ardent anticommunist, and a steadfast defender of the more famous Joseph McCarthy. He is one of the few to have voted against McCarthy’s censure in 1954, and supported the “witch hunts” which took place during the Second Red Scare, as well as the persecution of gay civil servants during the so-called “lavender scare.” These actions alone would convince many that he was a rather unsavory character, but his infamy lies in his treatment of Senator Lester Hunt of Wyoming, a Democrat, in 1953-4. Hunt’s son was gay, and had been arrested for trying to solicit sex from an undercover policeman. Bridges threatened to publicize

Sam Robert’s article, “A Decade of Fear” explains how McCarthyism turned Americans against each other after World War 2. In the first place he lied about communists being in the U.S. senate. As stated in Sam Robert’s article, “News of McCarthy’s accusations against the state dept. of president Harry Truman sent shock waves across the nation.” McCarty’s statements made him look like a gallant anticommunist and gave him power. As a matter of fact, he was considered more of a witch hunter.
