"In the circus alone are the people rulers."

Last night I picked up this great vintage paperback copy of Daniel P. Mannix's 1958 book about the grisly spectacles of Ancient Rome . Mannix wrote a tons of investigative articles and pulp histories for men's adventure magazines throughout the 1940s, 50s and 60s. As I was flipping through the opening chapter this morning, I was struck by his tight summary of the situation in Ancient Rome, and how much it resembles our current predicament.
