Decline and Fall of Roman Empire

Roman Empire

"In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security.

They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort and freedom.

When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility,

then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again."

Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire author Edward Gibbon
