That quote by Tiberius Gracchus could have been said by any sympathetic person about the poor in England at the height of the British Empire. The working poor of the UK fought and died around the world but didn't gain anything from their spilt Blood and hard labour. All that the working people received was oppression under the poor laws and transportation when they tried to feed their families.

The life of Tiberius Gracchus by Plutarch.

"But they accomplished nothing; for Tiberius, striving to support a measure which was honourable and just with an eloquence that would have adorned even a meaner cause, was formidable and invincible, whenever, with the people crowding around the rostra, he took his stand there and pleaded for the poor. ‘The wild beasts that roam over Italy,’ he would say, [ldquo ]have every one of them a cave or lair to lurk in; [5] but the men who fight and die for Italy enjoy the common air and light, indeed, but nothing else; houseless and homeless they wander about with their wives and children. And it is with lying lips that their imperators exhort the soldiers in their battles to defend sepulchres and shrines from the enemy; for not a man of them has an hereditary altar, not one of all these many Romans an ancestral tomb, but they fight and die to support others in wealth and luxury, and though they are styled masters of the world, they have not a single clod of earth that is their own."

A little on Ukraine's history over the last 100 years 


Ukrainians refer to Russian TV and its viewers as “Zombieland,” having long ago developed an immunity to the main talking points of Vladimir Putin’s mindless propaganda war.  They know the absurdity of his claims that Kyiv is run by Nazis and drug addicts, that NATO is threatening to destroy Russia, and that Ukraine’s Russian speakers are victims of a genocide.

Putin has supported these talking points by laying out his own version of Ukrainian history. In his telling, Ukraine has only been independent since 1991 and over the last 30 years has denied its true destiny: unity with Russia in a close but subordinate relationship. However, four revolutionary upsurges over the last hundred years in Ukraine refute this narrative: the war of independence in the years 1917–21, the struggle against Stalin’s regime in the 1920s and 1930s, the guerrilla war of the 1940s, and the Euromaidan protests of 2013–14.

Thirty years after the demise of the Soviet Union, it is perhaps not surprising that a number of myths have emerged about that event. Perhaps the one that is most widely believed but is demonstrably false is that the demise of the USSR was a bloodless event. In fact, it was very bloody but not in the center.

To be sure, very few people died in August or December 1991 at the center or indeed anywhere in the former Soviet space, especially if one compares the period of the immediate demise of the USSR with the collapse of India and Yugoslavia, to give but two of the events with which the Soviet collapse is most often compared.

Demise of USSR was anything but bloodless

On that page will give other links related to this story so that a better understanding of history can be obtained.

Yes, it would give a person a double take, for sure.

The 5,000-year-old human bone found in the River Thames

As he went out for a row one morning on the River Thames in London, graphic designer Simon Hunt came across a rather unexpected find.

Lying on the pebbles and rocks of the riverbed at low tide was a human femur, or upper leg bone.

Carbon dating has since indicated it to be more than 5,000 years old, but having recognised it to be from a person he immediately began to fear the worst.

"It looked very old, but part of me was thinking what if it isn't?" Mr Hunt said.

"I have no idea what a bone would look like if it had only been in the water for two years, so what if it was something more sinister?"The 5,000-year-old human bone found in the River Thames - BBC NewsThe bone with a tape measure showing it is around 43cm (17 inches) long
