Do you detect a trend throughout history: Money/finance/gambling, Territorial control/geopolitical supremacy . . .War which requires financing. Humans have been repeating the same mistakes throughout history.

I've been thinking of the Rome parallel for some time now!! It seems particularly apt, as Rome directly or indirectly had a massive influence on almost all the known world!

A very interesting article - thanks, Freya!
