rome post 3

Rome compared to today

·         Military prowess can lead to political rise
·         The rich have more power in society
·         Religious tolerance was an issue for different religious faiths
·         Coin was used for the economy alike ours
·         Food seemed like ours
·         Diverse cultures under one banner
·         Romans had a republic at first based off of 2 consuls where we have on president.
·         Romans believed in slavery
·         Required military service for citizenship of the family
·         Riches elevated your political status easily
