VERY few American leaders have the ability to see the “forest from the trees”, in a manner of speaking. Even fewer care to do so. Beyond the pale.
One of those who had this national gift was President Eisenhower — having served for two terms, from 1953-1961.
MOST notably, his highly coined “farewell address” to the nation couldn’t have been more prescient. Tragically, generations of students (from the 1960s and onward) have become infected by “moral relativism” and ahistorical revisionism. A toxic brew.
Eisenhower’s farewell address (sometimes referred to as “Eisenhower’s farewell address to the nation”) was the final public speech of Dwight D. Eisenhower as the 34th President of the United States, delivered in a television broadcast on January 17, 1961. Perhaps best known for advocating that the nation guard against the potential influence of the military–industrial complex, a term he is credited with coining, the speech also expressed concerns about planning for the future and the dangers of massive spending, especially deficit spending, the prospect of the domination of science through federal funding and, conversely, the domination of science-based public policy by what he called a “scientific-technological elite.” This speech and Eisenhower’s Chance for Peace speech have been called the “bookends” of his administration.[3
