Influence: Sought or Unsought…

“The conjunction of an immense military establishment and a huge arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, and even spiritual – is felt in every city, every state house, and every office of the federal government … In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 to 1969)

34th president of the United States (1953–1961), who had been supreme commander of the Allied forces in western Europe during World War II.
