    Nothing changes then

    Oxford's Bodleian library has acquired the only copy of a Shelley poem from when he was in his 1st year at the university. It deals with such issues as - the abuse of the press, dysfunctional political institutions and the global impact of war and would have been written 1810-1811. Not much has changed in 200 years then.

    Nope. In fact, this sort of stuff was pretty common all over the world going back, possibly, to when governments were first established.

    That's just because the masters of the world have been around THAT long.

    Well, considering the Roman government over 2000 years ago was already dysfunctional, and the heavy impact of war was known back then, I certainly would say nothing has really changed... but at least we have human rights nowadays, which makes it slightly better.
