So what have we learned in 2,065 years?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."


Cicero - 55 BC


Apparently nothing.

I'll see your Cicero and raise you a Plato: "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."

Two things I can conclude from Cicero and Plato: 1. people haven't changed in a couple thousand years, and 2. we haven't learned some very important lessons.

Further proof the further we progress the less we advance.
