History repeats itself ...

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

Evidently nothing.

Ignoring history and failure to pay heed to its lessons is what condemns us, again and again, to repeating the mistakes...
