The Cold War had a significant impact on American society during the 1950s. It heightened the fear of communism and led to a rise in anti-communist sentiments, resulting in widespread political and social repression. The government implemented loyalty programs, investigated suspected communist activities, and conducted anti-communist Propaganda campaigns. Additionally, the fear of a potential nuclear war shaped the American mindset, leading to the development of civil defense measures and an emphasis on conformity and suburban living.
