THE POLITICIAN LIVES OFF OTHERS - Philosophical Dictum of Cicero

THE POLITICIAN LIVES OFF OTHERS

This philosophical dictum of Cicero (106 – 43 BC) seems to be valid even today:

1. The poor: work and work

2. The rich: exploit the poor

3. The soldier: protects both

4. The taxpayer: pays for all three

5. The wanderer: rests for all four

6. The drunk: drinks for all five

7. The banker: robs all six

8. The lawyer: misleads all seven

9. The doctor: kills all eight

10. The undertaker: buries all nine

11. The Politician: lives happily at the cost of all ten
