…. in two millennia?
So what have we learned in two millennia?
“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 we become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” — Cicero, 55 BC
Thanks to my Belle Aimee in Coleman for the above. :-)
The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.
