I love stuff like this. It just proves to me that the more things change the more they stay the same!! I know that seems like nonsense but when applied to human history it kind of makes sense.

So here it is. 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.”

Marcus Tullius Cicero — 55 BC Roman philosopher ( 3 Jan, 106 BC – 7 Dec, 43 BC ) .

So, evidently nothing.
