using violence or force. World War I was much harsher on Americans than during World War II and restricted more civil liberties. During WWI the initial goal was to solely force a clean and positive image of war amongst Americans by censoring out a lot of media upon war and only highlighting the positives. It heavily used censorship and propaganda for a more conforming American society. This resulted in few to no opposition against the government as it meant federal punishment against opposition of government. Not to mention, during WWI President Wilson also used nationalism in a propaganda like manner to promote war and block out critics. On the other hand, World War II actually encouraged inclusion of people in hopes of more participation of people within the war, and made servitude more diverse. Although it still didn’t allow women, it had done a nondiscriminatory hiring process within America. Although, during WWII they still oppressed civil liberties, the extent and extremeness does not match up to that of WWI and even had civil liberties granted to people that didn’t have them before.
