About this Item


  • Law and order


  • Speech by Calvin Coolidge, Governor of Massachusetts. "Government is not and must not be a cold, impersonal machine...government must govern. To obey is life; to disobey is death. Organized government is the expression of the life of the commonwealth." Coolidge calls for opposing "imported ideas" and for "prosecution of the criminals and education of the ignorant."
