Throughout history, “Divida et Impera” (Divide and Conquer) was the ‘go to’ tactic for all rulers seeking to suppress popular dissent and maintain the status quo.

Governments today are no different.

The people will only triumph if they stick together.

“We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.”
