“Of all forms of injustice, none is more flagrant than that of the hypocrite who, at the very moment when he is most false, makes it his business to appear virtuous.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman lawyer, writer, and orator
Cicero was famous for his orations on politics and society. He was beheaded by order of his political rival, Mark Antony, in December 43 BC.
These words, spoken by Cicero more than 2,000 years ago, seem to be quite relevant in the second decade of the 21st century in the United States.
