Let Susa and the land of Anšan humbly salute Inana like tiny mice
Its why i asked what i asked. How could a leadership murder so many of its own and still build an empire like theirs? Something doesn't seem to connect

Sometimes I have trouble reconciling those massive stoneworks with a group like the Aztecs. Don't get me wrong, they were quite advanced in many respects, but their civilization was short-lived and it was already undergoing extreme societal degeneration after only a few hundred years. It doesn't make any sense that a high culture capable of building a stone city on the water would fall apart so quickly- by the time Europeans arrived they had already fallen quite far. They literally fought wars for the sole purpose of capturing slaves to sacrifice.
