Suetonious and the modern political paradigm

    If i got anything thing from this, is that first of all, the political system itself doesnt matter, as such, in the success or failure of a regime or government.

    Regarding the respective contentment of a population, this has more to do with bread and circuses even over general living standards.................

    That nationalist propaganda and brutal repression do not , always, go hand in hand-they are independant tools of state...
    and that people will put up with virtually any greivance, at the point of a sword, and dont necessarily recognise the difference when their allegiance is taken straight from their pockets instead.
