People do not understand what a great revenue economy is.
What is so beneficial to the people as liberty, which we see not only to be greedily sought after by men, But also by beasts, and to be preferred to all things.
The good of the people is the greatest law.
The safety of the people is the supreme law. Salus populi suprema lex.
The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if Rome doesn't want to become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
The safety of the people shall be the highest law.
Whatever is done without ostentation, and without the people being witnesses of it, is, in my opinion, most praiseworthy not that the public eye should be entirely avoided, for good actions desire to be placed in the light but notwithstanding this, the greatest theater for virtue is conscience.
