To continue a theme of uploading dated passages of texts with modern usages, here is an absolute gem from Woodrow Wilson in 1912.
Spoken on the campaign trail over a century ago, these words are, unfortunately, as relevant now as they were then.
“Politics in America is in a case which sadly requires attention. The system set up by our law and our usage doesn’t work,—or at least it can’t be depended on; it is made to work only by a most unreasonable expenditure of labor and pains. The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.”
Though not perfect in his attitudes and policies, Wilson is frequently considered one of the greatest Presidents the country has ever had.
