Ancient Rome Warns America

 Ancient Rome Warns America

The following quote is taken from The Path to Tyranny, by Michael E. Newton.

“These two men, Cicero and Cato, warned the Romans of the approaching Tyranny, but the populace was captivated by the demagogues who promised them land redistribution and wealth. The people got their dictators and land redistribution, the Roman Republic died along with Cicero and Cato.” p.68

When it comes to the failed political designs of cultures, history repeats itself ad nauseam. Sadly, thus far, I can find nothing that has both luminary success and permanence.
