Draft = Slavery (??)

Great quote about resisting the Draft... From a speech made during WWI...

"You need to know you are fit for something better than slavery and cannon fodder."

Quoted in Debs v United States, 249 U.S. 211 (1919)

I might be missing part of the back-story here, but wouldn't the year on that case indicate that the speech was made during WWI?
