    While The Crucible is based on the actual events of the Salem witch trials, Arthur Miller intended it to be a political allegory about the Red Scare and McCarthyism in the 1950s. Innocent people had their lives ruined over a falsehood, and people were singled out if their lifestyles, beliefs or actions differed from those of the people in charge. Miller couldn’t come right out and write a play explicitly about McCarthyism without getting blacklisted, so he wrote The Crucible instead. You still see it today any time a politician accuses another one of “being soft on terrorism,” being “sympathetic to terrorists,” having “ties to Muslims” or whatever. Red Scare-type tactics are still being used today. Just sub in “Muslim terrorists” for “communists.”
