I would have to agree with you completely, and something that remains a major irritation to me, is the success of Roman colonization - firstly as a military force and later as a religious force. And inturn, the inadvertent success of ancient Greek "colonization" due to the fascination that both versions of the Roman colonizers had with it. Should you wish to study Greek mythology at a distance and from an accredited university, you could find a course online within a few minutes, among a bewildering amount of different possibilities. Should you attempt to do the same with "Celtic" mythology you might find less of a choice - if any. And don't get me started on the fact that if one must, believing in one god is acceptable but polytheism is not only "primitive" thought but not taken seriously at all. In both versions, Roman (and in a real sense ancient Greek) philosophical, political, religious and intellectual colonization has perhaps been the most successful in the history of the planet.
Definitely. Sadly I don't think the Italian economy could afford it at the momentI wonder if we can make a case for reparations against the Italian state?
