Titus Livy said the same thing, more or less, over 2000 years ago. This lesson is so stark and so compelling thatit bears repeating at every opportunity. In his introduction to his monumental history of Rome, Livy remarked that his purpose in writing was "to trace the progress of our moral decline, to watch, first, the sinking of the foundations of morality as the old teaching was allowed to lapse, then the rapidly increasing disintegration, then the final collapse of the whole edifice, and the dark dawning of our modern day when we can neither endure our vices nor face the remedies needed to cure them."
The whole question of whether or not America will continue to exist a free Republic comes down to whether we can face - and enact - the remedies needed to cure our nation, our culture and our hearts of the rot of Marxism, multi-culturalism and collectivism that has penetrated every institution we have. Rome failed to to do what we must do - and history is our witness to its fate.
First: I agree; it’s starting.........
Second: I’ll rephrase Titus Livys “Yes we must obey our laws, until we can no longer live with the result of not obeying them.” as follows:
Yes, we must obey our laws, until we can no longer live with the result of obeying the newly made laws by the usurping left.
As for the subject of this thread, I see no reason to take sides. A murderer murdered a murderer. No more, no less.
