George Washington's farewell address (21/51)

Paragraph 21 (of 51) in George Washington's farewell address:

It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.
