If you don't think the US is the cultural and philosophical continuation of Rome get the fuck out of my face.

As in they steal from other cultures and civilizations and use that knowledge to create cheap imperfect rushed low quality copies of the original process?

Because holy fucking shit, the Romans fucking sucked at everything except thievery.

What about building forts and roads?

NB because stupid thread. The similarities between Rome and USA are they are big empires with lots of roads, that's pretty much it.

Greeks because Romans sucked at philosophy.

Nope. Most of the Greek philosophers were already studiously being copied by the Church. You realize how much Christianity ties into Plato, right? The "Renaissance" was predominantly rediscovering Roman art and architecture standards over a philosophical revolution.

Great example of the Church being a buncho anachronistic retards. Plato was already outdated. With his fucking retarded forms.

And Rome still mostly employed Greek architects. Also they ripped off Greek aesthetics.

Mad gay-reeks still sore over their crumbing ruins.
