Tolerance and Fear in a Spy-chasing Era

Goldman, Ralph M.
May 1955
New Republic;5/30/55, Vol. 132 Issue 22, p18
The article presents information about the book "Communism, Conformity, and Civil Liberties," by Samuel A. Stouffer. The Stouffer study will provide food for thought to students of politics for many years to come. The data presented in this volume have hot been sliced in all the ways that they might. For policy-makers probably the most important message of the survey is that schooling and mobility seem to be the strongest forces for broadening the degree of tolerance among the people. As Stouffer puts it, to be tolerant, one must learn that people with different ideas are not necessarily bad people.
