“In the councils of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex (whoops!). The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist (oh noes!). We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes (um, oh shit?). We should take nothing for granted (abjfgklfg, yeah right!). Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together (dayum, we fucked up hardcore…).”

—President Dwight Eisenhower, January 1961
