Depending on how old your grandparents are/were, they lived through the enforcement of the Espionage Act, the Palmer Raids, Prohibition, government court-packing and price-fixing schemes, the internment of the Japanese-American population, Red Scares, the most brazenly aggressive periods of the FBI and the era of the CIA attempting to overthrow half of the governments in Latin America.

I don't think they'd be clutching their pearls.
