The McCarthy hearings, like the witch trials, created a sense of hysteria. Accustions were made without merit, reputations were destroyed, and many accusations were unsubstantiated. The biggest difference between the two is that during the with trials.... people's lives were literally destroyed by execution. During the McCarthy trials...... lives were simply destroyed.
