A Quote That Lives On


In the Preface and Prospectus of The World a Department Store, I came across this quote:

โ€œI see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow; and the money power of the country will endeavor [sic] to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people, until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic is destroyed. โ€

โ€” A. Lincoln, 1865
