President Eisenhower’s farewell address, warning about the dangers of the “Military Industrial Complex”

This is the farewell speech of president Eisenhower. In it, he warns about the growing influence of a “Military Industrial Complex” and how it threatens our freedom.

There is a very interesting side-note about this speech. In the draft versions Eisenhower used the phrase, “military industrial congressional complex”.

I think it helps to remember that congress is part of the problem.
