Uncanny Prediction

In a state of tranquility, wealth, and luxury, our descendants will  forget the Art of War, and the noble zeal which made their ancestors invincible.
Every corruption will be employed to loosen the bond of Union which renders our  resistance formidable. When the Spirit of Liberty, which now animates our hearts  and gives success to our arms, is extinct, our numbers will
accelerate our ruin  and render us easy victims to tyranny.
 . . . Samuel Adams
