Under both the republican and pluralist democratic regimes, times of political crises such as wars have tended to provoke strong expressions of dissent and suppression. After the transition to pluralist democracy, three such periods arose in rapid succession: World War II, Red Scare, and the Vietnam War. Each period was unique, with different degrees and types of dissent, official suppression, and unofficial suppression.
