Dwight Eisenhower in his 1961 Farewell Address to the Nation “that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.” Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity” “The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present - and is gravely to be regarded.”

Was less remembered than Ike's threat warnings to beware of the “Military Industrial Complex” but now far more prophetic.
