    The 1920s (The Lost Generation)
    These critics did not aim to reform, but to isolate themselves from the evils they saw existing in their worlds. They believed that America no longer provided individuals with pathways they could follow to achieve personal fulfillment.

    Billy GrahamThe most famous evangelist in history, Billy Graham, a Southern Baptist, became famous in the early ‘50s through his “missions,” “crusades,” and T.V. and radio broadcasts. His believes that the Bible is the literal word of God and must be followed accordingly, and he also thinks that people must accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior. Despite accusations of anti-Semitism, he has long opposed other evangelists’ efforts to convert Jews to Christianity. Stridently anti-Communist, he was able to connect with a large audience as Americans suffered through the Cold War. He has written numerous books and also co-founded the evangelical periodical "Christianity Today."

    Communism would become an issue again during the late 1920's and throughout the Great Depression. The economic troubles of the United States caused many Americans to believe that Communism might be a better economic system. Thousands of Americans emigrated to the Soviet Union looking for jobs and hoping that they would have more opportunities under Communism.

    The leading figure of this second Anti-Communist movement was the leader of the House Committee on Un-American Activities Joe McCarthy, a Republican senator from Wisconsin. The investigations headed up by McCarthy gave rise to a second round of civil rights violations on the grounds of hunting down Communists. His overzealous approach when pursuing possible Communist threats led to the coining of the term McCarthyism which is used to describe the act of accusing someone of treason or disloyalty without any real evidence. Despite his unconstitutional methods, McCarthy was actually correct about Soviet and Communist infiltration of the US government. This period also saw the first example of Americans being executed for treason when Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, two American Communists, were executed for passing information on the atomic bomb to the KGB. Although the 1950's is characterized as an era of prosperity for America, the threat of Communism was always looming in the background.

    After the fall of the Soviet Union the fear of Communism and the Red Scare that had been a part of American culture for so long finally came to an end. The most powerful Communist country that had given support to all of the other Communist countries had turned to the free-market and so did all of the Eastern European countries under its' influence. There are still Communist countries in the world today such as Cuba, China, and North Korea but the fear of Communism in the US is mostly gone.

    Though religion was often very divisive in the 1920s, setting traditionalists and conservatives against liberals and the "Roaring Twenties" movement, in the '50s it was something most Americans had in common. There was still disunity between old and new denominations and practices, but the conformity of the applied to kiss this butt. They just fucked up alot.. johnathan parker at bft high is so fukn stupid and cute.
