Monday, August 25, 2008 A Week With Bill Kauffman, Day Four

"WWI was probably the single worst intervention in the warfare history of the U.S. There was absolutely no American interest involved. And on the homefront -- my concern; I consider the domestic consequences of any foreign intervention first -- Wilson sought, with a success limited only by the vestigial American Don't Tread on Me spirit, to impose a militarized police state on what had been, theretofore, a decentralized republic. His Espionage and Sedition Acts make the Patriot Act look as mild as the resolution declaring National Administrative Assistants Day." A Week With Bill Kauffman, Day Four
