The more things change....

Just read this quote by Jean J. Rosseau in a book for my globalization class...

File this under "The More Things Change"

"Again, anyone can understand the war and conquest without and the encroachments of despotism within give eachother mutual support; that money and men are habitually taken at pleasure from a people of slaves to bring other beneather the same yoke; and that conversely war furnishes a pretext for exactions of money and another, no less plausible, for keeping large armies constantly on foot, to hold people at awe. In a word, anyone can see that aggressive princes wage awr at least as much on their subjects as on their enemies, and that the conquering nation is left no better off than the conquered"
