All Those John Adams Quotes Still Apply

“Because power corrupts, society’s demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases.”

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”

“Fear is the foundation of most governments.”

“Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak.”

“The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.”

These words of John Adams will still apply, even when George W. Bush is no longer our president and Barack Obama has succeeded him.
