A governing principle of nature

It is a governing principle of nature, that the agency which can produce most good, when perverted from its proper aim, is most productive of evil. It behooves the well-intentioned, therefore, vigorously to watch the tendency of even their most highly prized institutions, since that which was established in the interests of the right, may so easily become the agent of the wrong.

James F Cooper  (1789-1851)  Amerkcan writer.

I am thinking universities, colleges, schools, police, and a few more besides the feds!!!
