Abstract [en]
Arthur Miller and Vilhelm Moberg both criticised their government and their times in The Crucible and Ride This Night (Rid i natt). They differ in time, place and nationality, but they share a deep concern for freedom of speech and, with that, democracy. Miller expressed his horror towards the witchhunt-like McCarthy hearings during the “Red Scare” in the American fifties, in his play about events from seventeenth-century New England, The Crucible (1953). Moberg similarly took a stand against the Swedish government’s indulgence of the Nazis during World War II, when he wrote a novel about events from seventeenth-century Sweden, Ride This Night (1941). They used their art to put forward a message about the freedom of the individual and about citizens being betrayed by the authorities. These authors represent urgings to preserve rights that are as important to cherish in the 2000s as it was in the 1940s-1950s.
