Who needs stricter justice than he who is superior to the laws? Who needs more steadfast self-control than he to whom anything is permissible? Who needs greater courage than he who is the preserver of all?
And although he seems to relish in the depravities of the emperors of the first century CE, this does not mean that he did not admire the very ideal of a virtuous autocracy, as is evident in his praise of the reigns of Nerva and Trajan. Galba Compare Pliny, Ep. Other instances of Josephus highlighting the virtuous behaviour of the first Jewish kings include his praise of Saul for his modesty and courage and David for his daring and overall distinction of character.
And finally, Solomon too is of course commended for his wisdom and justice. This issue of the injustice of tyrants is of immense concern to Tacitus, as reflected, for instance, in the above mentioned trial of Cremutius Cordus.
Morford , However, as it turned out, a few had remained and were later published.
V — Josephus and Tacitus on exemplary behaviour in subjects under tyrants The autocratic form of government thus easily ran the risk of becoming a tyranny with immense implications for the subjects and their sense of personal liberty. Rome had in earlier monarchic and republican times already seen its share of dictators, including Tarquinius Superbus, Sulla and Caesar.
And with the Age of Augustus drawing to a close there now came a series of men whose conduct at least according to Tacitus came to mirror those of their infamous predecessors. And as a historian he is primarily interested in disinformation, in deceit and in lies or better yet, in lies veiled as truth.

Mellor , By far the best example hereof in Tacitus is to be found in his laudatory portrayal of his father-in-law whom he seems to hold in the highest regard. Let those who say it is to admire only what is forbidden learn sciant from him sc. Agricola that great men can live even under bad rulers sub malis principibus ; and that submission and moderation obsequiumque ac modestiam , if animation and energy go with them, reach the same pinnacle of fame eo laudis excerdere , whither more often men have climbed by perilous courses but, with no profit to the state in nullum rei publicae usum , have earned their glory by an ostentatious death Agr.
Unlike so many other men of principle, Agricola has exercised moderation and sound judgment. For the greater good of the res publica he has managed to walk the narrow line between the excesses of, on the one hand, outright adulation as exhibited by many a senator cf.
Morford , , see also Strunk , and Turpin , and Oakley , This notion that it is and ought to be possible for upstanding individuals to behave themselves accordingly even under bad principes is also of major concern for Tacitus throughout his historical works. What was the alternative after all? And moderation seems to be the recurrent underlying virtue.
It is widely recognized that Thrasea is portrayed by Tacitus in Ann. Shotter , Strunk , ; Syme , , and Turpin , Oakley , 35 Cf. And this stout Stoic nature of his ultimately ended up by becoming the death of him, as had already been with case with his father-in-law.
Empire in Black and Gold (Shadows of the Apt 1)
And the Empire and the Emperor indeed cast a rather large shadow. It has, however, been my aim to provide some examples of the ways in which such authors as Josephus and Tacitus nonetheless managed to include in their histories some rather poignant remarks that could be construed as in direct comments on the very nature of monarchy and as instructive stipulations on how rulers and their subjects should and should not conduct themselves: For instance, they both stress the importance of freedom of thought and expression, of modesty and self-composure, of justice and righteousness as well as of the overall undesirability of tyranny and despotism.
See thou be not Caesarified, nor take that dye, for there is the possibility. So keep thyself a simple and good man, uncorrupt, dignified, plain, a friend to justice, god-fearing, gracious, affectionate, manful in doing thy duty. Strive to be always such as Philosophy minded to make thee. Revere the Gods, save mankind. Life is short.
This only is the harvest of earthly existence, a righteous disposition and social acts Med. Bibliography Anderson, G. Routledge, Annas, J. Barclay, J. Edmonson, S.

Zuckuss and his team board the ship and apprehend Fett attempting to capture the carbonite slab.
Furlag leads Fett to his cell but Fett opens a trapdoor under his feet. He keeps Zuckuss alive to communicate with Bossk and sends the shuttle back to him; when Bossk looks inside he sees his fellows dead, along with a detonation device, when Fett jumps to hyperspace.

Death Star plans As Xizor suggests to the Emperor, Bothan spies discover that the plans are to be sent in a small computer onboard a fertilizer freighter, the Suprosa , en route to their home planet Bothawui.
Intercepting the Suprosa The Bothans send a message droid to Tatooine for Leia, asking her to come to Bothawui, which is received by Luke and Dash who take up the challenge.
Along with a fleet of volunteer Bothans including Koth Melan , they intercept the Suprosa as it exits hyperspace.
It is revealed to Luke that there are two rewards on his head, as he is wanted alive and dead. Unknown to him, it is Vader who wants him alive and Xizor who wants him dead.
After much discussion, Leia agrees to go to Coruscant with Guri in the Stinger , taking Chewbacca with her. To allow the two to make it onto Coruscant without being identified, Guri helps them into disguises. Leia takes the guise of the Ubese bounty hunter Boushh , and Chewbacca is disguised as Snoova.
For a time, Luke meditates and concentrates. After he gains much confidence with the Force, he influences the mind of his cell guard. Luke gets the guard to lock himself in the cell and take a nap, while Luke exits and then proceeds to increase his skills in the Force as he makes his way out of the stronghold. Lando, with information from Dash, makes his entrance and rescues Luke, and they depart from Kothlis on the Millennium Falcon for Tatooine, and in a hurry, as the Executor has just arrived.
Darth Vader aboard the Executor, is sent to Kothlis to collect Skywalker as well as to make it appear as if the Empire was genuinely concerned with the loss of the plans ; the plans managed to reach the Razor over the planet.
Then Vader finds Skywalker gone and learns from Skahtul that someone wants Luke dead. After an intense seductive experience with Xizor, Leia is reinforced by Chewbacca, eventually retakes control of herself, and knees Xizor between the legs. He is outraged, and sends her back to her room, while Chewie is intentionally let to 'escape' although not so easy hoping that he would lead Luke to rescue Leia; and into Xizor's hands.
On Tatooine, Jix cleverly gets past security and makes contact with Vader on the Executor in order to inform him of the swoop bike incident with Luke and learns that Jabba, too, had a bounty for Luke dead, put by someone who used Vader's name.
Luke, Dash, Lando receive a message from Chewie and head for Coruscant where they meet; Chewbacca stealthily make their way through the sewers of Black Sun in order to enter Xizor's palace.
Using the Force, Luke and his thoughts inform Leia that he and the group are close by and will soon rescue her from Xizor. After much blasterfire with security guards with Luke integrating his increasingly advanced lightsaber skills, the group finds Leia and begins to lead her out of the palace.
They enter a hallway with Xizor, Guri, and several more of his aides, and a battle soon commences wherein Xizor and Guri are impressed with Luke's skills as a Jedi.
Luke and Lando soon threaten Xizor with thermal detonators that they send down the garbage chute, causing everyone to frantically panic and scatter out of Xizor's palace. Battle of Falleen's Fist Edit Xizor boards his skyhook, then sends four of his own starfighters at the Rebels, with Dash defending them with flak from the laser turrets of the Outrider. The X-wing starfighters of Rogue Squadron soon join in, along with many TIE fighters, and a big space battle commences.
Vader, via hologram on the Executor over Coruscant, confronts Xizor. Vader warned Xizor to stay away from Luke, but he willfully disobeyed those orders, and he thus orders the Imperial fleet to destroy Xizor's skyhook.The droid tells him that Fett is hiding on a moon of the planet Gall.
