Lessons from the self-inflicted demise of a great republic.

偉大羅馬共和國覆亡的教訓。(和今日美國驚人的相似)

-- Rome had defeated its enemies abroad but it was undone from within by greed and inequality -- and by the sort of politicians who breached a republic's political norms, plus citizens who choose not to punish them.

羅馬擊敗了外在的敵人。但是內在的因素使它解體。那就是貪婪和不均。還有違反共和國正常政治規範的政治人物(如榮譽、容忍、禮貌等)。加上縱容他們的公民。
