In the s, the conservative mind set generally defined freedom as individual autonomy that opposed a strong national government and instead supported limited government and unregulated capitalism.

As such, the US recognized that disagreement with the Soviet Union was inevitable and would require considerable negotiation and tactful diplomacy. This was the policy of peaceful coexistence.
While FDR did not necessarily like the fact that the Soviets wanted to create an Eastern European buffer zone of communist states, he could understand and accept it as a legitimate security objective - much like U. Truman felt Soviet expansion was proof of its imperialistic intentions to spread communism throughout the world - intentions that threatened his belief that American national interests should comprise the primary foundations for world cooperation and peace.
This became known as the containment policy. Thus, Truman and his administration were directly responsible for changing national opinion - for transforming the Soviets from a great power that had goals that sometimes conflicted with the U.
To put some bite into his rhetoric, Truman then set out to prove to the American public that he was not, in fact, soft on Communism by creating the Federal Employee Loyalty Program. This was the first general loyalty progream in the U. After a hearing, any federal employee could be fired if "reasonable grounds" existed for believing he or she was disloyal in belief or in actions.
Civil servants suspected of disloyalty were not allowed to face their accusers nor were their investigators required to reveal their sources. Betweenloyalty boards forced almost 3, government employees to resign and were fired for charges of disloyalty.
This program, however, failed to uncover any evidence of subversion, espionage, or any threat to American security.
With this program, Truman aimed to rally public opinion behind his Cold War policies. He also hoped to quiet right-wing critics who accused Democrats of being soft on communism.

While the vast majority of the rank-and-file communists were not involved in any type of espionage or disloyalty, we now know that the Soviets did support the American Communist Party during this period and that some of its most prominent leaders passed on American secrets to the Soviets.
Hoover activated national fear by announcing that there was one American Commuinst for every 1, loyal citizens. HUAC sought to remove those films with liberal, leftist viewpoints from the entertainment industry and thus ensure that the mass media promoted American capitalism, traditional American values, and the "right images.
Most refused to cooperate with the committee - HUAC cited ten of these - the Hollywood Ten - them for contempt when they took the Fifth Amendment and lashed out at the activities of the committee. These ten were jailed and blacklisted in the industry.
After purging the movie industry of such films via several years of harassment, Hollywood attempted to proove its dedication to the anti-communist crusad by turning out a series of undistinguished films like Big Jim McLainMy Son JohnI Was a Communist for the FBIand On the Waterfront At first Hiss denied knowing Chambers, but under questioning from Richard M.s/Cold War Review.
