Thomas Kerl: The Truth Takes Back Seat

The chain of events which led to the charges against Thomas
Kerl challenge the accepted notions of what should have
happened in an advanced democracy under the guidance of a
president who believed that war was immoral and that world
peace could be achieved through a league of nations. In the
instance of Thomas Kerl, the truth took back seat to state
sanctioned mob mentality. The story of how the government
manipulated and galvanized popular opinion to convict him for
speaking out makes this tale worth telling, because of how easily
it happened and how easily it could happen again.
