Coolest Classical Empire? Sep. 12th, 2011 @ 10:24 PM Reply

Who were the coolest dudes of the Ancient World? My money is on the Germanic tribes. I'm talking 500 BCE to 500 CE here.

No other empire has more power, corruption, or just pure hilarity than Rome. I've been studying Rome for about like 7 years now and there's just so much fun stuff to know about those people. They're culture was crazy and it's almost bizarre how the fall of the republic nearly mirrors our own


Mushroomn. 6 years later it's kind of a dumbass name. Sorry about that

The Mayans.

I just love their art and architecture so much. They may not have been a unified empire but they had considerable amounts of influence on Mesoamerican cultures during their Golden Age (250 AD - 900 AD)

They were the Greeks of the New World. It's a shame that they went out of business even before the Spanish conquest of the Yucatan region.

Egypt.

Although, if more was known about Harappa and such, it would probably be the ancient Indus River Valley civilization.

Egyptian society is still, in fact, the model for a perfect society. No society today even comes close to rivaling how perfect Egypt was in the Middle Kingdom era.

Sure, there were slaves in both of these civilizations, but they weren't slaves unwillingly. No, in fact, most of them enjoyed their (often, lowly) position and jobs, at least until the later revolts and decay (in both).

They didn't give in to mercantilism (-esque anyways, there weren't what we would consider formal systems of economics back then) and stupid rivalries like the Mesopotamians or Jews. No, they remained true to their divinely-mandated culture that was brought by the first pharaoh Menes.

A thoroughly theocratic and despotic government. Which is why their great monuments still stand today. The longevity of their civilization is only surpassed (depending on your definition) by the Chinese.


I have a message for the political elites in Washington, D.C. The United States of America is not going to become the United States of Europe, not on our watch. - HERMAN CAIN

Personally I think the Spartans were great. I would love to live in their time.

Live with them, their bodies, and their leather.
