If you read Parenti’s book about Caesar it says that Cicero and other Roman historians supported the senate oligarchy against populists like Caesar and that is why mainstream historians cite them so often.
They are also for the most part some of the only primary sources, so most history is naturally clouded by their biases and class perspective. Like of course the property owning oligarch will characterize the urban proletari and landless peasants as unwashed, barbaric mobs. I doubt those class would’ve described events this way - they just didn’t have the means to record, preserve and spread their histories
