Cicero Said: Know Who Your Real Enemies Are

Marcus Tullius Cicero, advocate, reformer, philosopher, orator.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly."

- Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106-43BC

Now who do we think he might have been talking about? The people who go around wringing their hands and telling us we must be 'nice' to those who want to take what we have made great, an kill us. Such people are ignorant of the fact that it was not being 'nice' that got us weak, slow running, poor tree climbing, and sadly lacking natural weapons hairless apes to the top of the food chain.
