Caesar was RESTITVTOR LEGIS
\> uses v instead of u
\> uses g instead of c
edit: turns out im dumb, you are correct
G is pretty fucking old
shit im dumb, woops
Out of here with that pre-Etruscan bullshittery. Real civilizations have G.
Caesar was indeed a tyrant, in exactly the same way that Peisistratos was a tyrant before him; in that I fail to see what the bad thing about that fact is.
Bad for the barbarians maybe, or the republic lol
With an entire crowd chanting "Rex", he said "I am not Rex I am Caesar"
Oh, well that's better.
Rex in all but name

He was though.
At the very least he was trying to become one
That is, if Pontius Aquila will allow it
I, too, identify as a Roman Senator.
When the “Rome was a fascist white ethnostate” types show up (and I mean both the SJW haters and the white far-right simps)
But Scipio Africanus was black though. It's in the name.

Argument over... or not.
He was about to lead Roman legions into the desert with epilepsy, lmao what a silly take.
Which desert has epilepsy??
No the legions had epilepsy
I'm not familiar with The Legions. Who is he?
Lmao got me.
He had just conquered all of freaking Gaul.
He was a tyrant, but a benevolent tyrant. Was it moral? I don’t know, all I know is he was a massively power hungry egotist that helped and improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people
He wrote a lot of the history books. So be careful with the benevolent moniker.
And thrice did i offer him a kingly crown, and thrice did he refuse. But brutus was an honorable man.
Abusing his power and overarching the Roman constitution? Yes, but he did it pretty legally if you just ignore the civil war part. A lot of what he did benefitted the average citizen as well
I mean the Civil War was a pretty major part of it.
Starting a civil war to avoid being tried for your previous crimes is generally considered unlawful behavior.
yeah, but stuff like being appointed dictator was done through the Senate, even if it was biased in his favor it was still legal
Wouldn't call scaring every politician you disagree with out of the city by marching in with an army, then demanding whoever's left (those who supported you) declare you dictator, quite legal
If I'm not mistaken though, he wasn't purging political opponents like Sulla, ultimately if it came down to it, they could have still gone against Caesar without repercussion.
Not really. While he didn't outright purge anyone, you'd be a damn fool if you stayed in the city your enemy was about to march into. And he's shown himself to not give a single damn about the law before. When he wanted access to the treasury, the lone Tribune, excersizing his veto, was told to "get out of his way or he'd have one of the legionaries cut him down".
Didn't Caesar not order that anyone be killed getting to the treasury though? I thought that was on the legionaries own behalf. I'm probably not right but just wondering. Most knowledge ik comes from Historia Civilis
That wasn't the legionary. That exchange was Caesar threatening him. If you want the historia civilis version,
Watch from there.
Yeah and he done fucked up by not doing that.
American Republican senators disagree.
Maybe the Roman ones should have gotten in line and stayed there too.
Calm down patriot act enjoyer
Lol. Weird presumptive insult
Weird way to try and make it political
Take it easy man. I guess it was a bad joke referencing Roman Senators seeking to maintain a *Republic* against Caesar's increasing power, resulting in civil wars and the ultimate demise of the Roman *Republic* for an Empire.
fuck Caesar, all my homies hate Caesar

He wasn't a tytant, he was a CONSUL OF ROME
Add a n't to the text in the meme
The romans stole their religion from the Greeks
Oh wait, wrong meme
Yeah, so... Can we not do the ablism shit? Like i get it, it's a silly roman meme joke, but that doesn't mean we have to act like spartans.
Aren’t you being ablist here by comparing disabled people to this?
I mean yeh I'd agree with them if this meme were even vaguely ableist lmao
bruh, it's just a meme
So you can't make memes without being a shithead?
It's called humor, if you don't get it, that doesn't mean other people don't
Fam, learning to love humor that doesn't hurt people is just part of growing up. Gotta do it some day.
Or people can learn to not get offended by something that makes someone else laugh, and just let them have fun.
But it's not just your place, this is a subreddit that many people browse. Letting shit like this slip by without saying shit about it is what perpetuates the shit.
This isn't ok, and you should learn to understand why.
Find some empathy
"perpetuates the shit" ah yes, perpetuating jokes, good. You can still laugh at non PC things you know, and you don't have a right to say what we can and can't laugh at. We aren't discriminating against autistic people irl on the basis of their mental ability, it's a goddamn joke. If you don't like it, then don't fucking look at it. It's the internet
You didn't make any point about how this doesn't perpetuate discrimination against neurodivergent and differently abled people. You just saw what you think is a buzzword and went "oh haha, yeah suuuure".
I have a right to say when you're being an asshole, i have the right to free speech too. *Perpetuating discrimination* has consequences, whether it be social or legal. Here it's just karma. Figure ur shit out before it becomes friends.
Ok, then give studies that memes about autism leads to discrimination. Because we've been more progressive with autistic people than ever before right now
Dude pls cry more
Disabled people aren’t children, they don’t need to be protected and can take care of themselves.
My brother is disabled and I’m not the one crying over “ableism” here, go back to twitter
Noooooo not my heckin ceaserinooooooo

Technically Caesar WAS a tyrant to the Republic, but that doesn't stop him from being literally one of the most based and chadpilled people that have ever lived.
Sulla did it better. Purged all his enemies so none would come back to stab him. Then gave up power and literally partied his dick off until he died.
Beep. Boop. I'm a robot.

Basically is the same argument between meritocracy and socialism that has been going for 1000s of years.
Clearly both sides have valid points.
