The two superpowers had been divided by ideological tensions since the late 1930s, with the United States being a capitalist nation and the Soviet Union being communist, but with Germany no longer being a world factor, the apprehension was higher than ever. Consequently, Americans became extraordinarily vigilant about preventing the rise of communist influence domestically that would threaten their way of life. However, this paranoia would lead many to
