Comment: panem et circenses

(See in situ)

panem et circenses

Give the masses bread and circuses to distract them.

"Bread and Circuses" (or bread and games) It connotes a supposed triviality and frivolity that characterized the Roman Republic prior to decline into an autocratic monarchy about 44 B.C. So ends the republic.

Hmmmm "Dumbed-down" populace and dictator-king trying to rule by executive orders...looks familiar.

It is possible all world leaders are on the same team, except for a few that are being eliminated by NATO-US. Are we being distracted while freedoms are taken from the people? Korea is putting on a good show.
