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, stead of living on public assistance
– Cicero, ca 55 BC.
(ca 200 år innan början på kollapsen av det Romerska imperiet)
