Publisher's Summary

Two days before the US entered WWI on April 6, 1917, Senator Robert La Follette (R-Wis.) defended the right to free speech in times of war in a three-hour senate address. La Follette supported the constitutional right to free speech on ethical, historical, and textual grounds. He speculated that the cause of the war was imperial ambition and commercial rivalry between the European powers, and was proved correct by later historical research in government archives.

What a treasure!

Fighting Bob was an ancestor of mine. I have been studying him as of late and this speech is absolutely brilliant! Bob was one of the greatest orators of all time.
