National Security Roots: The Cold War

questions about Foner’s Chapter 23 and Kinzer’s book “Overthrow”. 1) What effect did the Cold War have on American culture? What about effects with regard to anti-communism? 2) How did the sentiment of a national security state created along with the CIA and House Committee on Un-American Activities’ (HUAC) Blacklisting in 1947, McCarthyism, and COINTELPRO in 1956 impact American politics, culture, and society? (How did each of these impact in those ways?) 3) Are there any recognized parallels to American society post 9/11? Why and what are they?
