Probably it will come like the destruction of Romulus:
Some people warned - nobody listened
Now the people listen - but nobody acts
When they start acting - it's already too late and the point of no return was passed long ago.
And if tyrants take me, And throw me in prison, My thoughts will burst free, Like blossoms in season.
Foundations will crumble, The structure will tumble, And free men will cry:
Thoughts are free!
