I am arguing that the Romans were better than the Greeks as a nation. First round for acceptance only.

You know, I'm just going to forfeit this one. I figured this would be a good way to learn about Rome and Greece. Doesn't look like you put much thought into this either. From now on I'll stick to things I already have knowledge of.

I probably should have read the comments before accepting this challenge. I have a funny feeling this is going to get ridiculous.

Its sort of like comparing apples to oranges. Rome was far superior in it's size, as well as it's military power and discipline. At the same time, Greek culture made great intellectual and artistic strides that were not matched by the advancements of Roman culture. Roman culture was very bright, but it far more Greek influences than those of its own.

@Taylor.Gregory- My opponent must defend the Greek City States as a whole, but can use individual city states for his arguments. I can also do this for my rebuttals.

"better" is way too subjective.

Rome was definitely better IMO.

Greece wasn't a nation, but a collection of city states.
