Got an email with the following and thought it was sad but true:
"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
Could easily have been a quote from any politician in Ireland/Europe in 2010. So in another 2065 years will we still be saying the same or is there any hope that we can make real changes?
