The Army/McCarthy Hearings


"Those among us who would bar us from attempting our economic and social duty are quick with accusations, with defamatory hints and whispering campaigns when they see a chance to scare or silence those with whom they disagree. Rudely, carelessly, they invade the field of conscience, of thought, the field which belongs to God, and not to senators."

-Adlai Stevenson Campaign Address, 1952 [The Fifties by David Halberstam, NY 1993]
