- President Roosevelt cautions his audience for being too eager to destroy trusts. He does not wish to hamper prosperity, but he believes that the evil in trusts must be lawfully removed. He hopes that Congress will have greater power to legislate large corporations. Just like the men who fought in the American Civil War did not have a formula on how to win, but instead faced the battles and did not give up, so do Americans today need to courageously fight against the evils in civil life.
