McCarthy and the Red Scare’s influence reached beyond the government, even finding its way to books.

Fear and hatred by a few of a multitude drove mass suspicion and paranoia across a nation. It was pure evil. The Red Scare and September 11th are similar in that both periods Americans were attacked.
