"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes
me to tremble for the safety of my country. ... corporations have been
enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the
money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its
reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is
aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

  Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864 (Letter to Col. William F. Elkins)
