What have we learned?

From a reader:

What have we learned after 2,065 years?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

- Cicero - 55 BC

So, evidently nothing.

Thanks for the excellent quote-I have been told that the only thing that we learn from history is that people don't learn from history.
