Why Was Communism Feared?
After WWII, Americans knew they lived in the strongest
and "greatest" country on earth. They were however afraid
of communism at home and abroad. Through the reading and
discussions in this class I have found the primary reasoning
for this fear was because they did not want to think our
country could be like the rest.

fear of not being the best. The country feared what it
did not have control of and communism is just that. The
U.S. could no longer jump in and try to rule in best
interest of another country if they were communist.
Communism in the U.S. was a moral issue. This problem could
not be solved by the president or anyone on his cabinet.
Eisenhower was a manager, not a moral leader(Bragg 74).
