However, the connotation of being a shadow government or faceless stems from few people being aware of what a bureaucrat is and what their job is. Essentially, a bureaucrat is someone employed by the government and tasked with serving the public. There are 2 types of bureaucrats, and both of them have a different amount and kind of power. The two types are street level bureaucrats and federal bureaucrats. Street level bureaucrats exercise de facto power through influence, while federal bureaucrats are granted de jure power. Both kinds of bureaucrats are important but very few people know what they are and what they do." —https://sites.psu.edu/mromeorclblog/2020/02/21/bureaucrats-what-are-they-and-what-do-they-do/

The English writer Thomas Malthus, in his oft-quoted An Essay on the Principle of Population, alarmed much of 18th-century Europe by proposing that an increase in human population beyond sustainable limits would result in a catastrophic plunge in population due to famine and/or disease. Malthus' writings would inform much of the alarm over the "population explosion" roughly 200 years later.           But it was after the colonization of the Americas by Europeans that writers and philosophers were among the first to propose that wilderness had an intrinsic value beyond its usefulness to humans. While fisheries, hunting grounds, and timber stands were important to civilization, visionaries like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau proposed that "in wildness is the preservation of the world" (Thoreau). .. #LondonCalling:  Paying for Green. @JosephSternberg @WSJOpinion https://www.wsj.com/articles/oops-boris-johnson-truth-climate-energy-prices-costs-11634826979

Photo: Silver purity through time in early Roman imperial silver coins: To increase the number of silver coins in circulation while short on silver, the Roman imperial government repeatedly debased the coins. They melted relatively pure silver coins and then struck new silver coins of lower purity but of nominally equal value.  Silver coins were relatively pure before Nero (AD 54-68), but by the 270s had hardly any silver left.  The silver content of Roman silver coins rapidly declined during the Crisis of the Third Century.
