"The example when Italy, drenched with blood, never touched a hair on the head of Sulla who had graciously poured forth that blood (free of charge): Sulla enjoyed a god-like status for the might in him, but his fearless return to Italy made him appear sacred and invincible.

Such a cute and fat authoritarian ruler and math and chess and spelling wizard I confess.
His kindergarten graduate writings, swapped sticker books, grotesque alien paintings and barked archives about him and his thoughts have largely been lost in the quicksands of time, and only the memory of his massive bloodletting and then grandiose retirement when he fell prey to illness and old age remained etched in world history, that Yeltsin, Mahathir and Castro in sequential order followed a millennium later with the first two only voluntarily relinquishing power on the lost electorate.
Humans often need control for a better world. Because of their scant understanding of the political they often do not know what is good for them. It's the truth!
