Lost Wisdom.

"I am apprehensive, therefore-perhaps too apprehensive-that the Government of these States may in future times end in a monarchy. But this catastrophe, I think, may be long delayed, if in our proposed system we do not sow the seeds of contention, faction, and tumult, by making our posts of honor (government) places of profit." -Ben Franklin from The 5000 Year Leap
