Including a historical phrase in the OATH OF OFFICE for the position of Prime Minister of Belize.

The human animal is a slow learner. Each generation make the same mistakes. Belize too has been plagued by Prime Minister's, who lack classical historical knowledge. Here is the governing mantra that each Prime Minister of Belize should have to swear, with his OATH OF OFFICE. Amateur politician or not!

What have we learned in 2,065 years?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."-- Cicero - 55 BC

What have we learned in 2,065 years?
Nothing, apparently.
