"Plunderers of the world, when nothing remains on the lands to which they have laid waste by wanton thievery, they search out across the seas. The wealth of another region excites their greed; and if it is weak, their lust for power as well. Nothing from the rising to the setting of the sun is enough for them. Among all others only they are compelled to attack the poor as well as the rich.Robbery, rape, and slaughter they falsely call empire; and where they make a desert, they call it peace."Tacitus, Agricola
Funny thing, human nature. Despite all the trappings of progress nothing ever seems to change except the names.
Empire is now called 'war on terror.'
Panem et circenses. Washington is certainly a circus, and we know who is getting all the bread.
