When I was growing up the forerunners of "McCarthyism" (now-forgotten
figures like Westbrook Pegler, Martin Dies, Walter Winchell...) were
screaming endlessly that "Leftist Subversion" was being financed by
Moscow Gold and politically directed by the Kremlin and that therefore
leftist political groups were "conspiracies" that were to be
suppressed in defense of "democracy." Their position was no less
justified in relation to USA-1940 than Walter's is in relation to
