  • Red Scare America 1920 - 822 words
    Red Scare America 1920 annon World War I was finally over, however, there was a new threat to Americans. This threat was Communism, which was greatly feared by most U.S. citizens. Communism is 'a system of social and economic organization in which property is owned by the state or group, to be shared in common or to be distributed among members of the community equally or in proportion to their respective needs.'* In 1919, no more than one-tenth of the adult American population belonged to the newly formed Communist movement, and even this small percentage were greatly persecuted. Although American 'Reds' caught most of the fury of the raids, it was not just the Communists who had stirred na ...

  • An Analytical Essay Explaining Why Arthur Miller Wrote The Crucible - 740 words
    An Analytical Essay Explaining Why Arthur Miller Wrote The Crucible Authors often have underlying reasons for giving their stories certain themes or settings. Arthur Miller's masterpiece, The Crucible, is a work of art inspired by actual events as a response to political and moral issues. Set in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, The Crucible proves to have its roots in events of the 1950's and 1960's, such as the activities of the House Un-American Committee and the "Red Scare." Though the play provides an accurate account of the Salem witch trials, its real achievement lies in the many important issues of Miller's time that it deals with. Throughout The Crucible, Miller is concerned with consci ...

  • Anatomy Of A Psychopath - 987 words
    Anatomy Of A Psychopath In every mans heart there is a secret nerve that answers to the vibrations of beauty. --Christopher Morley Almost every person has a preconception of the darkest form of humanity: evil.

In one specific scene, Cesar attempts to kill a beautiful woman named Jane, Franciss fiance coincidentally, at Caligaris request. Jud ...

    ... des of the fifties, if it were in print, it was infallible truth. As a result, not only was communism a force from overseas to fear, it was a force within our own boundaries threatening to tear apart the post war threads that tenuously held the nation together. Billy Graham was not immune to what was going on. When he spoke about communism, he spoke as a person not completely removed from the attitudes that were prevalent in the nation. He, too feared communism. In a message delivered as early as 1947 he stated, Communism is creeping inexorably into these destitute lands, into wartorn China, into restless South America, and unless the Christian religion rescues the nation from the clutch ...

    ... d although they don't speak, they are definitely a force the other animals have to contend with. Orwell almost speaks of the dogs as mindless robots, so dedicated to Napoleon that they can't really speak for themselves. This contention is supported as Orwell describes Napoleon's early and suspicious removal of six puppies from their mother. The reader is left in the dark for a while, but later is enlightened when Orwell describes the chase of Snowball. Napoleon uses his secret dogs for the first time here; before Snowball has a chance to stand up and give a counter-argument to Napoleon's disapproval of the windmill, the dogs viciously attack the pig, forcing him to flee, never to return ...

  • Communism And Capitalism Are Two Radically Different Forms Of Government Which Both Aim To Provide The Best Life For The Citi - 1,072 words
    Communism and capitalism are two radically different forms of government which both aim to provide the best life for the citizens under its control. An important characteristic of communism is its aim to make sure that every citizen plays an equal role and gets an equal share of the community's profit. Under capitalism, all citizens are given the opportunity to succeed, but individual motivation and skill is required. Since money is one of the most essential measurements of success and stability, the two forms of government have their own planned approaches to dealing with employment, trade, and spread of wealth. Communism is a form of socialism or Marxism, first proposed by Karl Marx in the ...

  • Communism History - 1,338 words
    Communism History Communism has long been heralded in capitalist countries as the root of all evil. However, as with all phobias, this intrinsic fear of communism comes from a lack of knowledge rather than sound reasoning. It is that same fear that gave the world the Cold War and McCarthys Red Scare. The purpose of this paper is neither to support communism over capitalism nor the reverse of that. Rather, it is to inform the reader of communisms migration through time and hopefully assist the regression of such fear. The ideology of communism came out of the minds of two men, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels (Marxism, 11). (Dueto Marx being the more widely known influence, he will be the one m ...

  • Crucible Salem Episode - 365 words
    Crucible Salem Episode The Crucible The Salem witch-trials, are an historic event that occurred during the Puritan era. It was the witch-trials that decided the fate of so many of the accused. Arthur Miller, the author of The Crucible uses the Salem episode as a parallel to an event in the 1950s known as the "Red Scare". He associates many incidents of the "Red Scare" with that of the Salem witch-trials. Such incidents as: witch-hunts, hysteria, and cupidity which all entwines with both the " Red Scare" and The Crucible. One may ask, "What's a witch hunt?" It could be described as "the searching out and deliberate harassment of those with unpopular views". In The Crucible a group of girls st ...

  • Crucible Tale Of Trials - 1,198 words
    Crucible Tale Of Trials A political cartoon shows a massive stone wall surrounding tall office buildings which bear labels of "Department of Energy," "Defense Department," "National Security Agency," "CIA," and "FBI." Outside the wall, which is tagged "Government Secrecy," a couple huddles in a roofless hut called "Personal Non-Privacy." At the top of the cartoon is printed "Somehow I feel this is not the way the founders planned it." Indeed, America's founding fathers most likely did not plan for the United States to be governed in such a manner that the people of its democracy would feel debunked. How, then, did the United States since its founding in 1776 come to this feeling of exposure? ...

One civilization taken by madness is harrowing enough, but the real-life drama that submerged Salem Village and left its people in a state of hysteria was unfortunately to be repeated in almost parallel form. Indeed, the similarities between the HUAC trials in the 1950s and the Salem witch trials as portrayed in The Crucible are horrifying. Both trials were initiated by individuals who called out the guiltiness of others in order to somehow better their own positions in society. Abigail Williams and her friends went against the conformity of their Puritan religion, which ...

However there were many acts and laws past to limit the influx of immigrants, do to prejudice, such as the Chinese Exclusion Act.

    Interrogations of Chinese Immigrants at Angel Island Chinese immigration, after being shut down for many years by governmental legislation and an anti- Chinese climate resumed quickly after 1906. The major earthquake and fire that occurred in San Francisco lent the Chinese immigrants a window of opportunity to regain entrance to America. Immigrants could now claim, without proof, that they were indeed the son or daughter of a citizen or a partner in a legitimate business. These paper sons and paper merchants increased the number of Chinese immigrants by an unbelievable rate. It was this supposed population explosion that would lead the United States to investigate all incoming Chinese immigr ...

    Joseph McCarthy Throughout the early 1950s, the nation was deeply engrossed in fears of a Communist takeover. At a time when Americas fears were at their very height, Joseph McCarthy, a Republican Senator from Wisconsin pushed Americas fears to an extreme. As a ploy to get himself re-elected, and to make America hate Communism as much as he did, the Senator devised a devious scheme. McCarthy, while giving a speech, held up a piece of paper and exclaimed, I have here a list of 57 known Communists who are currently employed by the U.S. State Department (Fried, 89). A few days later, McCarthy raised the number of people on the list from 57 to 205. The reaction to McCarthys announcement was abso ...
