Belgrad AMS 2030 The New Left I. The “New Left” College students who do not conform to communism and capitalism, which is called the “old left.” A. The rediscovery of poverty- only one third of American families lives the suburbia lifestyle. These poverty stricken people were seen as invisible. In the 1960’s poverty reemerges as a known problem. Some of this was due to television. Television is trying to figure out how it can restore its credibility among American people. Television was seen as middlebrow and low standards. They started playing very serious news shows on CBS, (Murrow). B. Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy (SANE)- After McCarthyism the Ban of the Bomb movement occurs. American started protesting open-air nuclear testing. If you set off these nuclear war fares, it would impress the Russians and show them that we had them. There started being a lot of radio-active bomb material floating around. The SANE organization wanted to practice open-air testing, but particles started showing up in baby’s teeth, mother’s breast milk, and tuna fish. This was one of the first major movements of the New Left.
