http://learntruehistory.com Larry Reed at FEE asked a couple of years ago, are we Rome? He pointed to a number of troubling similarities between the Roman Empire and the modern United States. I answer yes for several reasons, not the least of which is political corruption. Americans should study not only U.S. and British history, but also classical civilizations like Greece and Rome. This provides perspective on our current moral, economic, and political plight. You want blood? We got it.
