Progressivism in 29 AD

h/t Mark Krikorian’s Progressivism in 29 AD

Livia in I, Claudius:

And it’s no use arguing with you republicans. You refuse to see that one can no more reintroduce republican government at this stage than one can reimpose primitive feelings of chastity on modern wives and husbands. It’s like trying to turn the shadow back on the sundial: it can’t be done.
