The end of WWII also propelled the United States in to another conflict, as the feud between the U.S. and the` Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.) led to a Cold War; a war of political ideas.By 1947, the USA pushed nations to promote a Democratic government for trading, while the Soviet Union promoted a Communist form of society- which would make it harder for free trade to exist.

McCarthyism and ‘Witch-Hunts’! In the early 1950s, Senator Joe McCarthy led the Red Scare in the USA, alleging, that there were Communists within the U.S. (similar to terrorists in the early 2000s).

Because of his actions, many were sent to prison, while many had their reputations crushed- including actors, writers, musicians, Civil Rights Leaders, and Democratic politicians.
