Trivia

"Bread and circuses" (or bread and games; from Latin: panem et circenses) is metonymic for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the generation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace, as an offered "palliative." Its originator, Juvenal, used the phrase to decry the selfishness of common people and their neglect of wider concerns. The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the commoner. (From Wikipedia) See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Chief Many Horses: It is good to make this sacrifice where the sun can look down and see you. It is a great privilege to dance with the sun. The sacrifice will be hard, but you are strong and brave. You will not give up, as I did not give up when my father brought me to this place. Follow the sun all day and pray. If you are strong and true, your sacrifice will be rewarded, and you will have a vision.
