Eisenhower's Warning

"...in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become captive of a scientific-technological elite." - President Dwight Eisenhower during his Farewell Address.

Ike's warning of a "military-industrial complex" is much more famous but given our current state of things - I think the above warning which was also in his Farewell Address may be more apt. 

Dangers from "scientific-technological elite" may be among the top dangers facing this nation.
