Washington' Farewell Address -translated!


Randall Munroe at the wonderful blog xkcd took George Washington’s Farewell Address of 1796 and painstakingly translated each point into 21st century American English. He said the process was “fun, depressing, inspiring, and a little bit spooky.” The results are amazingly easy to read and understand. The advice Washington had for the nation is still valid today.
