Nothing New Under the Sun

“Excess of liberty, whether it lies in state or individuals, seems only to pass into excess of slavery.”

Plato, The Republic

What an incredibly accurate description of modern (post modern?) times in the West!

Question for discussion:  how do you think this relates to technology? To government? To economics? How about morality? Can you connect this to any Bible passages?

There truly is nothing new under the sun. Who says old dead white guys aren’t relevant these days?
