Not all Nobel Prize winners have good judgement on what's right or wrong.
I was listening to a Western Traditions teacher, teaching about Rome, and was sickened when he explained that "Pax Romana" meant (It's definition
IS Peace Rome but he said this) that Rome was the power, and they were going to bring peace where ever they wanted, and did with their Army.
Of course he said more than that, but that is exactly what he was meaning, and it was clear, he was also alluding it to what the US is doing now
(bringing freedom to the Iraqis).
Now he's totally wrong, because Pax Romana was the name given by Augustus to his Empire, because he brought peace to the Empire.
Not to anywhere else, before him the Empire was in upheaval, and civil war, and once he declared himself emperor, he reunited the Armies, and ended
It has nothing to do with "Imperialism" or what not.
I hate how the educated "liberals" take pot shots at policies they disagree with, it is wrong when they are changing the actual meaning of
Can we say "New Speak"?
