86,592.  Hear me.  I am your new president.  From this day on, the official language of San Marcos will be Swedish.  Silence!  In addition to that, all citizens will be required to change their underwear every half hour.  Underwear will be worn on the outside so we can check.  Furthermore, all children under sixteen years old are now sixteen years old.  (Republic & President)  Bananas 1971 starring Woody Allen & Louise Lasser & Carlos Montalban & Natividad Abascal & Jacobo Morales & Miguel Angel & David Ortiz & Rene Enriquez & Jack Axelrod & Howard Cosell & Roger Grimsby & Don Dunphy & Charlotte Rae et al, director Woody Allen, new president

 

86,593.  The Americans won’t recognise us because they think we’re communists.  The communists won’t recognise us because they think  we're American puppets.  The one person in the world who recognises us was arrested yesterday on a morals charge.  ibid.  Woody as new president

 

 

30,325.  What kind of a republic was it supposed to be?  (Great Britain & England & Civil War & Republic)  Simon Schama, A History of Britain: Revolutions

 

 

53,090.  A republic cannot succeed, till it contains a certain body of men imbued with the principles of justice and honour.  (Charles Darwin & Republic)  Charles Darwin, The Voyage of the Beagle 1839 p165

 

 

86,591.  Republics everybody join; everybody putting their mouths in.  Nothing sacred.  All confusion and babble.  Republics can’t carry on war.  Hurrah for a strong one-man government.  Mary Chestnut 

 

 

86,594.  An acrimonious and surly republican.  Samuel Johnson, Lives of the English Poets, Milton

 

 

86,595.  A return to first principles in a republic is sometimes caused by the simple virtues of one man.  His good example has such an influence that the good men strive to imitate him, and the wicked are ashamed to lead a life so contrary to his example.  Niccolo Machiavelli

 

 

86,596.  The new republic should be based on diversity, respect and equal rights for all.  Evo Morales

 

 

86,597.  Toleration and liberty are the foundations of a great republic.  Frank Lloyd Wright

 

 

86,598.  In a republic this rule ought to be observed: that the majority should not have the predominant power.  (Republic & Majority & Power)   Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

 

86,599.  When a monarchy gradually transforms itself into a republic, the executive power there preserves titles, honours, respect, and even money long after it has lost the reality of power.  The English, having cut off the head of one of their kings and chased another off the throne, still go on their knees to address the successors of those princes.  On the other hand, when a republic falls under one man's yoke, the ruler's demeanour remains simple, unaffected, and modest, as if he had not already been raised above everybody.  Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

 

 

90,104.  A petition: these women were Levellers, a radical political movement that argued the new Republic of England should be democratic.  (Suffragette & Rights & Women & Equality & Republic & Feminine)  Vickery, Suffragettes: Forever! The Story of Women and Power ***** BBC 2015 

 

 

95,959.  Many theocracies, from medieval Rome to modern Wahhabi Saudi Arabia, have managed to be spiritual police states and banana republics at the same time.  (Religion & State & Republic)  Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great p213

 

 

109,199.  Rome’s emperors: sometimes brilliant, sometimes mad.  All of them powerful.  But Rome wasn’t always ruled by these dictators.  Once it was a largely democratic society; its leaders were elected and no-one could hold too much power.  They called it the Republic and it lasted for five hundred years.  (Rome & Empire Roman & Republic)  Ancient Rome: The Rise and Fall of an Empire III: Revolution
