Politics never change.
The words of the great Roman statesman, Marcus Tullius Cicero, are as relevant today as they were in the 1st century B.C.:
“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions…Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful good society’ which shall now be Rome, interpreted to mean ‘more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.'”
~Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
