All this would change during the First World War, and especially after the Russian Revolution. Woodrow Wilson instituted a vast machinery for repressing dissent, and other progressives, who joined the Wilson administration in large numbers, began to see radicals as a problem and shied away from defending them publicly. After the war, progressives renewed coalitions with radicals in such organizations as the American Civil Liberties Union and the Farmer-Labor Party, but they insisted that they did not share the views of radicals and drew a clear distinction between their own views and socialism.Roosevelt made good on his promise in the summer, when he began speaking on a platform of Crolya#39;s aNew Nationalism. ... the New Nationalism that Wilson incorporated something like Crolya#39;s views of Reconstruction into the New Freedom.
