Progressivism in Roman Times

“Gaius gracchus proposed a grain law. The people were delighted with it because it provided an abundance of food without work. The good men, however, fought against it because they thought the masses would be attracted away from hard work and toward idleness, and they saw the state treasury would be exhausted.”


It seems that the problem with progressive schemes is the same no matter what the age or the technology
