This is my ambition. The First Red Scare sets the stage for the next 100 years of rightwing politics, thought, and behavior
I've read most of what there is to read about Second Red Scare (McCarthyism--actually, 4th or 5th red scare). Just now digging deep into the First Red Scare (3rd or 4th), following WWI. It needs to be more central to larger narratives of US History. So repressive, so emblematic!
