The American Republic died a long time ago, now we are simply trying to hang on to the last vestiges of true civic freedom. The freedoms that will remain, will be those of moral turpitude and the few “freedoms” that comport with the dictates of the ruling elites. There are no champions on the horizon and in a world controlled and manipulated by the few that have access to absolute knowledge of even the smallest of sins those that attempt to digress from the defined path will be squashed by the machinery of State. Eventually, as all such systems evolve, some will simply be eliminated. If you think this cannot happen here, think again. It already has. It is.
Sunday was March 15, known to the culturally literate as the Ides of March. On that day in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was infamously stabbed to death in the Roman Forum.
Aside from perhaps wondering why the only Latin words in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” are “Et tu, Brute?” it’s also worth pausing to think on what the “Ides of March” really meant. That Julius Caesar was stabbed on the Ides of March is both historical fact and a commonplace, so rotely repeated by schoolchildren and the trivia-minded that it’s been drained of its import. But there is more here than mere ancient history.
