According to Debs, why were “these . . . anxious, trying days”? What was the  

signifcance of his slogan “Vote as you strike and strike as you vote”?

. Why did Debs object to Wilson’s pledge that the war would make the world  

safe for democ racy? Did Debs and Wilson agree about the dem o cratic possibilities of developments in Russia?


. According to Debs, how should working-class people respond to the patriotic  

appeals of leaders? How should they avoid treason? In what way could peace  

be achieved?


 Do you think Debs should have opposed the war, even though U.S. troops  

were fighting in it? Why or why not?
