“…I discern a subtle and creeping return to old habits. I see a slackening in the vigilant attitude of some of our people. There seems to be a lowering of energy and enthusiasm in some citizens and workers. There is a thirst for special privilege, attention, and favors. I see the intervention of more and more of those whom we had branded as influence peddlers. And there is a tendency towards overconfidence and complacency.”
