Faded glory. Faded freedom......................from Rico

Hell's bells....please forget the much over-used Santayana quotation about not learning from history and being doomed to repeat it.
 
Heed Edward Gibbons from the 1700's instead!
 
"In the end, more than freedom. they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all......security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished foremost was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again."
 
Sound familiar? Sound like anyone you might possibly know?
- Yeah, like the ones who voted for Barry twice, and are now "ready for Hillary" (or Jeb, or whomever)?
 
Are you understanding yet WHY "Common Core" does NOT want to teach this kind of stuff?
 
Freedom isn't free.
- Neither are slaves.......
