Eisenhower famously addressed this issue in his farewell speech in 1961, where he highlighted the dangers of the growing influence of the military-industrial complex. Eisenhower expressed concerns about the development of a permanent armaments industry and its influence on government decisions, urging for caution and the need to control this complex to maintain democracy.
