Eisenhower’s "Farewell Address" (1961)

Page history last edited by Mr. Hengsterman 12 years, 3 months ago





Eisenhower’s "Farewell Address" (1961) : warned Americans of the dangerous

growth of the military-industrial-complex. (Vast, interwoven military establishment and arms industry).  Power was enormous (largely in National Security Council) and had potential to effect democracy itself.


"In the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence...by the military-industrial-complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.”
