They’re goin’ to put a tax on everything standing still
And everything that moves
And the beatings will continue
Until morale improves” Larry Gatlin

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.” Dwight D. Eisenhower’s farewell address to the nation, 1961
