· Identify and explain two other reasons why the members of the League oppose the current U.S. policy in the Philippines. (Paragraph four)

(2) Compare and contrast the views of authors Rudyard Kipling and Mark Twain on American imperialism and the current events in the Philippines:

and why you think the poem is often called the “Anthem of Imperialism?” (Paragraph six)

(3) Industrialist Andrew Carnegie and the New York World advance new arguments opposing the acquisition of the Philippines and US imperialism around the globe:
· Explain the two arguments Carnegie makes in his Distant Possessions: The Parting of the Ways in opposition to the imperialism and the acquisition of the Philippines. What is his concern about “alien races” and what does he see as the additional costs of imperialism? (Paragraph eight)
· Address the essential point pictured in the New York World’s “Civilization Begins at Home.” To illustrate that point, what is happening outside the window and why is Lady Justice drawing the curtain to show President McKinley? (Paragraph nine)
(4) Take a side! Would you have been an imperialist or an anti-imperialist in 1898? What would have persuaded you to take that side?
