During the first century BCE, concerned Romans saw their free republic being undermined by a demagogues who sought and held power by promising “benefits” to low-information voters. Ultimately, Romans lost their freedom entirely.
In this impassioned video, Lilia Domilla, a young Roman woman, warns Americans to preserve their liberties and not slip as her country did into bondage.
Lilia is played by Rebecca Natelson Chertudi, a Montana Latin teacher. (See the “credits” here.)
