One of my fellow contributors over at DefCon posted a video of Voddie Baucham (pronounced BAHK-um) talking about the American public
ejkashun, I mean, edguqatian, um, skrool system, and how "If we continue to send our children to Caesar for their education, we need to stop being surprised when they come home as Romans."
Lately I have been noticing how the society we now live in is very similar to the days of the Roman Empire.
- The Romans' popular cry was "Bread and Games!"
- Romans delighted in gladiators and chariot races.
- Romans put a high emphasis on knowledge, physical skills and attributes.
- Romans were easily amused by theater.
- Romans were given to drinking much wine.
- Rome allowed you to belong to any religion you wanted so long as you understood that the Caesar was God.
- Rome did everything they could to destroy Christians.
- America fills itself with potato chips and football.
- America delights in Ultimate Fighting and NASCAR.
- America puts a high emphasis on trivia, glamour, and physical attraction
- America is easily amused by TV and movies.
- America is given to much wine, beer, whiskey, Scotch, vodka, malt liquor, wine coolers...
- America allows you to belong to any religion you want so long as you remember that the government is God.
