#4

How was the Red Scare in post-World War I America connected to organized labor movements?

Answer: Labor unions were largely thought to be controlled by liberals with Marxist sympathies. Although it was by no means universal, many early 20th Century union leaders were, in fact, Communists, or sympathetic to socialist ideologies. (This tendency reversed after WWII.)

#5

Which of the following was an unintended consequence of the liberal successes of the 1960s?

Answer: Conservative Republicans mobilized to defend traditional mores and curb government authority. Liberal ideals were realized in Supreme Court decisions that expanded democracy and individual freedoms, Great Society social programs and policies, and the power of the federal government, yet these unintentionally helped energize a new conservative movement that mobilized to defend traditional visions of morality and the proper role of state authority.
