I’ve been saying this phrase for about 2.5 years now and end my podcast, newsletters and speeches with this phrase. In this piece, I wanted to get to the heart of what it means and why I keep saying it.

Carthago Delenda East

The phrase fiat delenda is comes from the Latin expression, Carthago delenda is, which means that Carthage must be destroyed. The expression is attributable to Cato the Elder. He would end all his speeches to the Roman senate with this sentence, no matter what he was talking about. He was like a nagging mother screaming for her teenage son to come downstairs for dinner. And, like the teenage son leaving his food to cool, Rome ignored Cato until they suffered casualties to the Carthaginians.
