What'll it be, pal - Josef Stalin or Teddy Roosevelt?



“Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our political opponents have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?”
  - Josef Stalin



“The Roman Republic fell, not because of the ambition of Caesar, but because it had already long ceased to be a republic at all.  When the sturdy Roman Plebeian, who lived by his own labor, who voted without reward according to his own convictions, and who formed in war the terrible Roman Legion had been changed into an idle creature who craved nothing in life save the gratification of a thirst for vapid excitement, who was fed by the state, and who sold his vote to the highest bidder, then the end of the Republic was at hand, and nothing could save it.”
 - Theodore Roosevelt
