Gnosis: "A nation can survive its fools... but it cannot survive treason from within. For the traitor appears not a traitor; she speaks in accents familiar to her victims, and she wears their face and their arguments, she appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. She rots the soul of a nation, she works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, she infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. Beware the traitor!" - Cicero 42 B.C.
