Let me now take a more Comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful [harmful, destructive] effects of the spirit of the party generally. This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exits under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness [state of being excessive and unpleasant], and is truly their worst enemy…. It agitates there community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments [stirs up] occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated [made easier] access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another…. George Washington Farewell Address
