Think about it...

Who does what to whom in society according to Cicero (106BC to 43 BC) Nothing is new under the sun!!! A rough translation, not from the original Latin!!!

1. The poor...............................work
2. The rich ...............................Exploit the first
3. The soldiers.........................Defend the first 2
4. The tax payers.....................pay for the 1st 3
5. The homeless/jobless.........count on the 1st 4
6. The drunks...........................drink for all 5
7. The bankers........................rob all 6
8. The lawyers.........................cheat all 7
9. The physicians ..................kill all 8
10 The morticians....................Bury the previous 9
11 The politicians....................Live off the 10
