What is it when you think of the Fifties

First, Peter, we didn't excuse them at the time. We fought like mad. We even published a scurrilous magazine (The Seeker, 1961) that lampooned the school structure and were denounced by an apoplectic Headmaster as 'cynics and cosmopolitans' as he screamed lines from Milton's Areopagitica at us to prove our worthlessness. Neither I or any of my closest friends were ever even considered to be made Prefects. Second, and much more to the point, I cannot accept your logic. Times do change. Moods switch, tides ebb and flow. I remember writing an essay at University proving, beyond a shadow of doubt, that Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were racist pigs. Easy to write when there was a more-or-less universal acknowledgement at the time that white people were naturally superior to blacks: these two guys might have been 'liberals' at the time but we would denounce what they said as 'racist'in 2014. More, cultural shifts, when they occur, are often enforced by legislative changes: it was Martin Luther King who said, 'you cannot force a change in behaviour by persuasion - but you can by legislation'. The behaviour exhibited in HCS by some teachers would now not only be culturally unacceptable: it would be illegal. Finally, I stick to my guns with Golland, Mees and some of the others: they were very sensitive to cultural changes; they knew times were changing. I have an email in front of me, having tracked it down, from JSG in November, 2000, where he says he was 'enormously proud of us when we published The Seeker - but could not say so at the time'. Lafferty, a younger man, might have gone that one step further. Because the times had moved one step on.

Nixon (1913–1994) was a Republican senator from California and the 37th President of the United States.

Eisenhower’s Contribution to the Allied Forces ..

Overall, we have analyzed Eisenhower’s Farewell address in terms of purpose, authorship, audience, agency, and context. Using these guidelines, we have gained a deeper understanding of why this speech remains one of the most memorable of all time. The exiting President remained humble in his approach, but demanded no less than the high standard, that Americans had held so long, when dealing with issues in the future. He foresaw the dangers and pitfalls that laid before the nation, and he did his best to warn us to not make that mistake. The question is—have we? Over 45 years later, are we adhering to that high standard? Are we properly using our immense military strength, or has there been a “disastrous rise of misplaced power.” Time will tell. But one thing we know for certain—Eisenhower’s Farewell address has stood the test of time and is as relevant today as it was on January 17th, 1961.

The individual responsible for the creation of this speech was the exiting President Dwight E. Eisenhower. Eisenhower, who led the European Allied campaign in World War II, mentions his military past in his description of his relationship with Congress when he states that a “member of the Senate appointed me to West Point,” and also mentions a relationship with Congress, prior to his presidency, during the “war and post-war period.” Later in his speech, the President’s personality is revealed when he states the following about war:
