Why Is Rome's Fall Important Today?
Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it.
Why or why wouldn't you compare Rome and the U.S.?
I would compare; both are empires, increasing decadence, complacency.
What I was searching for
I googled roman empire decline. I want opinions how social factors contributed to Rome's decline.
What I wanted to learn
Just looking to compare/contrast ancient Rome with current US situation. I perceive a precipitous decline in several areas of American culture, and wonder if there are parallels to be found. This is personal interest only. I'm not doing a project or assignment.
- Fall of Rome not attributable to a single factor.
- No real date for the fall. It was a process.
