The more things change, the more they stay the same

So, what really has changed in more than 2000 years of "civilisation"?

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.
- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)
