118 years and still holding true.

“If our civilization is destroyed, it will not be by the barbarians from below.  Our barbarians come from above.  Our great money makers have sprung up in one generation into seats of power kings do not know.  The forces and the wealth are new, and have been the opportunity of new men.  Without restraint of culture, experience, the pride or even the inherited caution of class or rank, these men…. claim a power without control, exercised through forms which make it anonymous and perpetual… They are gluttons of luxury and power, rough, unsocialized, believing that mankind must be kept terrorized.  Of gods, friends, learnings, of the uncomprehended civilization they overrun,they ask but one question: How much?” 

– H. D. Lloyd (1894)
