ISSUE : Why were some American people blacklisted ?

The Red Scare

One of the Hollywood ten

Sacco and vanzetti

I am going to deal with the notion locations and forms of power. First, of all I would like to give a definition of the notion. « Power » is the ability to exercise authority and influence over others, it can be exerted in difference spheres economy, politics, media. In relation to the notion, the topic of my presentation will be the taste of power. We way wonder : Why were some American people blacklisted ?

I) Le contexte :

In the document "Cold war hysteria" we discover the context of the “Red Scare”.

The two periods of « Red Scare » in the USA. The term « Red Scare » refers to strong anti-communism feelings because communists were called « Reds » as the flag the Communist International is red, the colour of sacrifice, revolution and in Russian, also meaning, beautiful.

The first period was set between 1917 and 1920 after the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 in Russia. In fact, immigrants from Eastern Furgse were said to come to the USA in ordre to export their ideas and were suspected of subversion spies spent by the URSS.

As for the second period, in the 1950s, the US goverment hunted down people suspected of having sympathies with the communist party : it was Mc Carthysm.

Now I want to quickly introduce Joseph Mccarthy to the origin of Mc Carthysm. He was an american senator. He started a wich-hunt against communist in the 1970s during the cold war. He targeted Hollywood people and intellectual.
