Occupy Wall Street members will find many of Mill’s observations and conclusions relevant to today’s society. The “One Percent” represents many of the “Power Elite” and the control and influence they have on US policies in both at home and abroad. Mills criticism of US society and politics for its lack of democracy, class inequalities, and increasing militarism can be heard in the voices of protesters on Wall Street. Occupiers represent people who have put aside apathy and hopelessness to become a voice of change for American politics. They have realized that we need to make a change and disrupt the status quo.
Enrollments in colleges and universities were at an all-time high, and many students felt anguish in the efforts of college administrators to control outside aspects of their lives. Other liberals, becoming involved in the growing civil rights movement, were disappointed in mainstream liberals not highlighting their hardships and supporting their efforts to better their party. This led to the creation of the “New Left”, separately distinguished from the mainstream liberal and Democratic Party. Contrasted with the more hands-on approach of the Sharon Statement to attack the communist regime, with force if necessary, the Port Huron Statement stressed a system based on harmony and reconciliation.

They are destroying it” (Crystal 335). Crystal also argues that when printing came about it people thought of it as the work of the devil. People believed that printing would put false opinions into people’s minds.

In October 1947, the Committee began to subpoena screenwriters, directors, and other professionals about their known or suspected membership in the Communist Party. This was called the “Black List”, also known as the “Hollywood Ten”, they cited the First Amendment, but this tactic failed and they were sentenced to prison for contempt of Congress (Wales and Sanger). The military was also at risk and 83 alleged Communist were discharged, also nearly 3,000 seamen and longshoremen lost their jobs due to this cause (Drummey). Suspected homosexuality was also common cause for being a target for McCarthyism. In many cases simply being subpoenaed was sufficient cause to be fired and blamed for this horrific

The conservatives resisted the change of the decade by the police and courts cracking down on radicals: prohibition outlawed liquor, the Klu Klux Klan attacked immigrants and radical minorities, and fundamentalist Christians decried the changing code of morality and the teaching of evolution in schools, while congress drastically restricted immigration.

Intent on pressuring traditional social values, rural Americans saw in the city all that was evil in contemporary life. Saloons, whorehouses, little Italys, little Polands, communist cells, free love, and atheism; these were all identified within the city. The countryside struck back.
