I suppose we get to watch a first world country fall into ash from its own dumb mistakes.

Maybe this is how Rome really fell?

Yes, I'm sure they had Jews too.

I'm no historian, but I do know aside from economic shenanigans (devaluing the denari), another YUGE contributor to the collapse was how quickly Rome expanded, specifically capturing slaves from other conquered tribes/nations then turning around and putting them in the military and giving them voting rights, acting like dressing them up as Romans would make them Romans. We all know how that plays out.

I mean romans having to deal with jews being deceptive and lying is most of the conflict in the new testement.

The "invaders" who helped cause the fall of the Western Roman Empire were Germanic tribes which were pushed into Roman territory by the Mongols. It's actual history. Check it out.

You mean the Huns.

That's what Attila Total War taught me.

You have a car that is fifty years old, never had one single maintenance done, three tires are flat, the engine badly works as it is, three out of four doors are too rusted to open, it smells like shit inside and the brakes do not work. But you are going to blame the lack of gas on why the car is completely destroyed.

This is you blaming the fall of Rome to Germanic tribesmen serving as soldiers.

But what government paved the road and takes out the trash is really not important. Rome actually fell by mixing with conqoured people.
