Has THOR read Michael Parenti's Assassination of Julius Caesar for a different take on the oft-criticized behaviour of the mob and social-reformers-dubbed-demagogues like the Gracchi? I would like to hear more - although there already is some - commentary from THOR on the issue of exploitation by the senatorial class of the general populace as well as the social issue of patronage and personal honour that seems to run right through Roman history and explain so many otherwise unaccountably selfish and immoral decisions.
