Learning from the best, part 4

Some uncannily timely and prescient advice from the ancients:

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

I present this without characterization, for you to take as you will.
