I am told that on this day, January 10 in the year 49 before Christ, Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon. For those who forgot what that means or never knew it, there's olenty of information on the net. And by the way, it was January 10 according to the Roman calendar.
In our modern days so many Rubicons are crossed : economic, financial, social, cultural, legal, criminal, ethical, moral ... religious. But most people are too busy to care or too stupid to see and understand what is happening.
When you cross a river, you take in some water. By lack of insight in currents and problems and by lack of modern technology we may still drawn.
Very interesting times, indeed.
