This is admittedly taken out of context, but the words seemed to resonate across a century. From the Oct. 5, 1906 NYT concerning a speech by President T. Roosevelt:
[E]ach generation has its special and serious difficulties; and we of this generation have to struggle with evils springing from the very material success of which we are so proud, from the very growth and prosperity which, with justice, we boast. The extraordinary industrial changes of the last half century have produced a totally new set of conditions, under which new evils flourish; and for these new evils new remedies must be devised.In full disclosure, Roosevelt is referring to the "evils" of concentrated wealth, and the need for government oversight and control of privately held means of production.
