    I think a healthy dose of doubting is necessary to keep lies to a minimum but, I don't think that it leads to the door that truth, liberty, or freedom are hiding behind.

    Seeing Cicero was counted as an enemy of the state for wishing to return to the Republican form of government, I would say his statement lends light to the struggles of his time. Question all authority when tyranny rules. Such as the current state of affairs in the U.S.A.
