Michael Headrick It is a criticism of McCarthy's tactics because in both The Crucible and the "The Red Scare," those that were accused and didn't want to be hung
(The Crucible), or put in jail (The Red Scare), confessed and blamed someone else so they could feel like they got off without any form of criticism or punishment.
Sketchbook There were-are no WITCHES anywhere. There were COMMIES, by contrast, in US Gov. The parallel (as it were) to the Red Scare, by a Red author, is pathetic.
