The Red Scare was a period of time when the people of the U.S. had many radicals among them that were using a lot of violence.

The man known as Mitchell Palmer felt that he had to stop the violence and started a campaign on the issue.
Palmer initiated the campaigns after having attempts on his and his family's lives. However, the Espionage Act was a cause of the radicals as 1920], Nelles: Seeing Red [Aug. <i>DEBSWHATCANWEDO</i> (n.d.): n. pag. 1000 Flowers Publishing, 2005. Web. stated:
During this period of time mail bombs were used to kill people. These bombs were formatted so when the envelope was opened it would explode.
Palmer made it his mission to take the radicals to justice and eventually his efforts were for the good of the U.S. for there were 10,000 people that were arrested. An address from [1919], Palmer: America Or Anarchy? <i>DEBSWHATCANWEDO</i> (n.d.): n. pag. Web. stated:
"The radical foreign language press during the war
was kept in check by means of the Espionage Act, approved
June 15, 1917, and amended May 16, 1918,
the purpose of which was to protect the interests of
the United States in prosecution of the war. While the
Post Office Department through a rigid enforcement
of this Act was able to prevent the dissemination of
propaganda directed against the Government through
the mails, the publishers of these newspapers and publications
found other ways to get this propaganda into
the hands of their readers."
