History doesn’t rhyme, it just repeats.

"To everything there is a season, to every wave a limit, to every range an optimum capacity. The United States has been fully settled, and more than full, for at least a century. We have nothing to gain, and everything to lose, by allowing the old boat to be swamped. How many of us, truthfully, would prefer to be submerged in the Caribbean-Latin version of civilization? (Howls of "Racism! Elitism! Xenophobia!" from the Marx brothers and the documented liberals.) Harsh words: but somebody has to say them. We cannot play "let's pretend" much longer, not in the present world."

They say History rhymes, doesn’t repeat.
This is the clear example how it repeats: The same exact thought of the Roman Emperors.
And what happened? A bunch of Barbars from the Nord came and fought and won.
