PROMPT: In this discussion I want you to consider the following:
- Espionage and Seditions Acts during WWI
- Internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII
- McCarthyism and the Red Scare
- Pentagon Papers
To what extent should the personal liberties of American citizens be curtailed in order to protect the nation as a whole? Do you agree with the national security arguments made for each of the above? What lessons were learned from the above and can you see the same arguments playing out today?
