2016 US Elections in One Quote and One Image

Version française

Now in its final days, this campaign which saw ad nauseam so many abuses, scandals and corruptions as well as revelations, injustices and lies, can be summarized in one single quote and one single image.

Panem et Circenses

Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to irresponsible leaders, the People have abdicated its duties. The People, who once upon a time handed out high military command, high civil office, legions, and everything else, now restrains itself and eagerly hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.
– Juvenal, Roman satirical poet

Lady Liberty is Crying

What’s Next?

Will the confrontations calm after the November 8 results? Unfortunately, I don’t think so. On the contrary, I believe they will amplify and I am already saddened.

In light and harmony, Serge Bernard
