James Yang 780 - 784 Q4 1. How can Americans in the early 1900’s be viewed as single-minded in terms of political opinion? Americans have long since feared anything that could possible overthrow the American way of life. However, in the early 1900’s this fear was multiplied by the threat of Communists, mainly the Soviet Union. Quickly, it they become the most dangerous and most threatening ideal to America, with other uprisings such as in Hungary and Bavaria. Ultimately, they feared that it would eventually cross the Atlantic Ocean and contaminate the American ideals. However, typically Americans saw this new danger as a negative before truly analyzing it. John Reed, a son of a wealthy businessman, roamed the world to see many inspirational developments by the Russians, and also many appalling sites by the capitalistic countries and their wars. These insights were never taken seriously however, because from the beginning they were viewed as un-American, and the Russians were seen as cowards for leaving the war. 2.
