Why indeed? We seem as humans to be incapable of learning from our history and our past. As advanced as civilization purports to be now, the tyrannical, power hungry mindset doesn’t seem to ever go away. Add to this the rampant racism and disenfranchisement of others based on their ethnicity, sexual preference and or religious beliefs.
Not exactly out of the mouths of babes, but close to it. The muppets were WAY ahead of their time or timeless either one will work.
