Just prepend a range of the command (do :help range). % is the whole file,
1,25s/.... would apply the substitution to the first 25 lines,
:/foo/,/bar/s/... between the first matches of "foo" and "bar", etc.

for presidents to make wars, for governments to feed on the substance of
their people, for insurance companies to cheat the young and rob the old.
