Are doomed to repeat it.

This movie should be available right now on DVD and Video as anyone who has heard a sample of the propaganda tactics of Senator Joe McCarthy should feel a fearful chill of recognition when listening the post 911 rhetoric of George W Bush and his cronies, some of which continues to this day.

A must-show for any high school civics class, the only thing more powerful then seeing this film is reading the extremely well written biography it was adapted from. It gives a portrait of the uniquely American horror of McCarthyism that will stay in your mind the rest of your life.
