t Union, often seen as the face of communism. This scare was partly due to the stronger national government that had been created during WWII. By introducing income taxes and regulating prices the government began having a much stronger hold over the American economy than it did pre-WWII. This created fear and tension in America as civilians began to argue over the role of government and whether they should continue to have laissez faire economic policies or stronger, more liberal ones. During this era acts were put in place such as the one that created the Special House Committee to Investigate Un-American Activities, a committee meant to investigate domestic communists. Most of the infrastructure for combating domestic communism was put in place during the initial Red Scare that occurred following WWI. This scare created the FBI’s antiradicalism division alongside civilian “patriotic” organizations that continue to combat the communists on the home front. This event was important as it pitted the two American core beliefs of safety and liberty against each other. In fact, debates over the Red Scare continue today as they are relatable to current Americans’ struggles between those two ideals. The Red Scare had a profound effect on the Southern way of life in the form of Operation Dixie. This operation was a motion by the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) to organize more unions in the South. Even though unions had taken hold of most the northern manufacturing, the South remained relatively unorganized. This led union officials to believe that the lower percentage of unions left the region potentially susceptible to uncontrolled northern business. The president of the CIO, Murray, thought that creating unions in the South was vital for the future of labor. The American Federation of Labor (AFL) also began a unionizing campaign in the South around this time. The CIO decided to begin their operations in the cities that expand them to more rural areas, however, it never gained steam mostly due to the Red Scare. Southern businessmen, anti-union workers, and even some from the AFL assaulted the CIO as being communists and dramatically reduced the impact of their efforts. The movement was also targeted as being anti-Christian. As Christianity and the Church played a major role in southerners’ lives in this era, these threats resounded with the workers. Many textile factories and mills began sending out anti-union newspapers to enforce their message. The inability of these attempts at unionizing slowed down the rise of manufacturing in the South and is part of the reason that it remains heavily agriculturally based to this day. Going beyond economics, the most important social aspect of life in the 1950s in the South was the racial tensions. The figurehead of these conflicts, the KKK, led the way through their terror tactics meant to force blacks out of the South. Even though slavery had been ended with the 13th amendment, slave type practices still persisted and African Americans continued to live impoverished. An example of these practices was sharecropping, which >GET ANSWER
