Abstract

We face a mounting crisis in civil rights. Thought control, social and economic penalties, and downright coercion are being applied to nonconformists. Some of these repressive measures are aimed at maintaining the status of already depressed minorities, especially Negroes. Others are directed at groups only recently singled out for large-scale discrimination-public servants, teachers, critics of government policies, and above all the Communist Party.
