A

a. During the historical period in question, the notion of freedom primarily referred to people’s ability to live their lives in a manner free from any ideological indoctrination, unlike what was the case in the USSR. Throughout the era’s early phase, African-Americans also used to think of freedom as the idea strongly opposed to the practice of racial discrimination.

b. The main challenge to freedom during the Cold War was the semi-official legitimization of the policy of McCarthyism, the advocates of which called for the suspected Communist sympathizers to be publicly ostracized.

c. Among the major political developments that had a strong effect on defying the discursive aspects of the Cold War era in the US can be named: the introduction of the 1947 National Security Act, the introduction of the 1968 National Voting Act, and the outbreak of the 1974 Watergate scandal, which resulted in the Presidential resignation of Richard Nixon.
