Bl_rp

Yea?


Brother_Anarchy

G is pretty fucking old


based_libtard

shit im dumb, woops


greenwrayth

Out of here with that pre-Etruscan bullshittery. Real civilizations have G.


IAmParliament

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.


Haxomen

Bad for the barbarians maybe, or the republic lol


ActiveRaccoon4

With an entire crowd chanting "Rex", he said "I am not Rex I am Caesar"


Brother_Anarchy

Oh, well that's better.


thunderma115

Rex in all but name

He was though.


Illiad7342

At the very least he was trying to become one


Anonguy72

That is, if Pontius Aquila will allow it


krashlia

I, too, identify as a Roman Senator.


BenDover03717762

When the “Rome was a fascist white ethnostate” types show up (and I mean both the SJW haters and the white far-right simps)


Claudius_Gothicus

But Scipio Africanus was black though. It's in the name.

Showerthawts

He was about to lead Roman legions into the desert with epilepsy, lmao what a silly take.


SankenShip

Which desert has epilepsy??


ThisLecture9888

No the legions had epilepsy


thunderma115

I'm not familiar with The Legions. Who is he?


ThisLecture9888

Some guy


Showerthawts

Lmao got me.


LupusLycas

He had just conquered all of freaking Gaul.


Sophrates_Regina

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


thedessertplanet

He wrote a lot of the history books. So be careful with the benevolent moniker.


HeimskrSonOfTalos

And thrice did i offer him a kingly crown, and thrice did he refuse. But brutus was an honorable man.


NapoleonicWarhead

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


thunderma115

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.


NapoleonicWarhead

yeah, but stuff like being appointed dictator was done through the Senate, even if it was biased in his favor it was still legal


Confused_Elderly_Owl

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


NapoleonicWarhead

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.


Confused_Elderly_Owl

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".


NapoleonicWarhead

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


Confused_Elderly_Owl

That wasn't the legionary. That exchange was Caesar threatening him. If you want the historia civilis version, https://youtu.be/BASVRPfYFKo&t=865 Watch from there.


Claudius_Gothicus

Yeah and he done fucked up by not doing that.


whatthehand

American Republican senators disagree. Maybe the Roman ones should have gotten in line and stayed there too.


thunderma115

Calm down patriot act enjoyer


whatthehand

Lol. Weird presumptive insult


thunderma115

Weird way to try and make it political


whatthehand

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.

Add a n't to the text in the meme


thunderma115

The romans stole their religion from the Greeks Oh wait, wrong meme


yinyin123

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.


felix_odegard

Aren’t you being ablist here by comparing disabled people to this?


ADM_Tetanus

I mean yeh I'd agree with them if this meme were even vaguely ableist lmao


CucumberCrusade

What?


NapoleonicWarhead

bruh, it's just a meme


yinyin123

So you can't make memes without being a shithead?


NapoleonicWarhead

It's called humor, if you don't get it, that doesn't mean other people don't


yinyin123

Fam, learning to love humor that doesn't hurt people is just part of growing up. Gotta do it some day.


NapoleonicWarhead

Or people can learn to not get offended by something that makes someone else laugh, and just let them have fun.


yinyin123

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


NapoleonicWarhead

"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


yinyin123

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.


NapoleonicWarhead

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


Satanus9001

Dude pls cry more


RexCeasar

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

ProperLadInnitBruv

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.


Claudius_Gothicus

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.

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