NOTES OF INTEREST
Scots Historian Professor Alexander Tyler circa 1787 regarding the fall of the Athenian Republic .

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.  It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse (generous gifts) from the public treasury.  From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.’

&

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilization has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence. From bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from great courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back into bondage.”  

Does this sound familiar?
