Greeks are Better than Romans
Debate Rounds (4)
Good luck next round,
Next, The Roman Government didn't actually have seven kings, this idea came from Roman mythology and the story of Romulus and Remus, which was based on Greek mythology. Rather, when they first started out, they had two Consuls (who controlled the military, the taxes and the laws), a Senate (that advised the consuls, it was mostly made up of wealthy families), Tribunes (people representing the poor families in the senate), Prefects (people who ran the city - court cases, the port, the market, etc.) and the Assembly (They voted on whatever the Consuls told them to, such as going to war, and elected Prefects, Senators, and Consuls). Later they kept the Consuls and the Senate, but the Emperors had all of the real power. This Emperor system is when Rome was at the height of their power. Although the Romans did get all of this land, there was no purpose for it. They did not use it to advance their technology, art, or culture in any way. They simply wanted the land just so they could say that they had land. it was not beneficial in any way, shape, or form.
Next, all that the Romans did was copy the Greeks mythology. The used all of the same Gods and heroes: Zeus vs. Jupiter, Hera vs. Juno, Hermes vs. Mercury, Poseidon vs. Neptune, Heracles vs. Hercules, the list goes on and on. They kept all of the same people and stories, and simply changed the names of the Gods.
Finally, I would like to point out that you never mentioned the fact that the Greeks created many of the foundations for modern math, science, engineering, medicine, philosophy, and Government as well as in other areas. Therefore, that argument flows through.
You're obliterating me :D Keep it up,

Reasons for voting decision: Enjoyable debate and the winner is Pro who put up more of an argument for the Greeks, Cons third round rebuttal was witty but Pro came back in the fourth and Con forfeited. I would normally deduct a conduct point for a forfeit but both had good conduct otherwise.
