Rome as Superpower

Here is an interesting article about a book review of How Rome Fell: Death of a Superpower by Adrian Goldsworthy. Reading the legacy and heritage book really awakens an interest in learning more about the Greek and Roman experience. Knowing that Rome’s main contribution to Western Civilization is a strong family. Remembering from my past one writer’s diagnosis of the fall of Rome centered on immorality. It wasn’t the immorality among the upper classes; the death knoll for Rome was when that immorality was adopted by those same families that gave it its strength. That is an obvious American parallel.
