I’ve been reading Rise of the Warrior Cop by Radley Balko, and this quote from Alexander Hamilton as written in The Federalist Papers No. 8 stood out to me:

The violent destruction of life and property incident to war, the continual effort and alarm attendant on a state of continual danger, will compel nations the most attached to liberty to resort for repose and security to institutions which have a tendency to destroy their civil and political rights. To be more safe, they at length become willing to run the risk of being less free.
