A lengthy argument against the continued application of laws enacted during the Red Scares of the 1940s and 1950s. Both the Smith Act, also known as the Alien Registration Act, and the McCarran Act, also known as the Internal Security Act, were used against union organizers and suspected communists. This document, produced by the Communist Party of the USA decries their implementation as a legal assault on freedom of thought.
