Authors employed their literary work to get a point across to the general public in the story The Crucible; Arthur Miller used events and characters to show the similarities to McCarthyism which was widespread in the 1950s.

McCarthyism is quite similar in the way that Joe McCarthy accused Americans of being communist and in The Crucible people were being accused of being witches.
