Would anybody like to debate something regarding the Roman Empire (that includes the Republic and the Empire)?

If yes, please post topics you would like to debate here.

(I don't have any research done yet for this, but it would be interesting to see)

Imperial Rome was much better than the Republic of Rome (PRO)

I won't participate but do you want to do a debate on the formidable strength of the Roman vs the contemporary Han empire?

Interesting. Would anyone debate this where I say the Roman Empire was better?

I wish I could but then I am reminded of a) my lack of a definite stance on the subject and b) my need to review for the upcoming exams....

What would have happened if Attila the Hun had died as a child? There would definitely be a different Europe today. And therefore a different America (we'd be speaking Latin).

Please do not bring up anymore topics. However, if someone would like to debate the resolution "The Roman Empire was superior to the Han Chinese Empire" where I am pro, just tell me in the forum, and when my first debate is finished, I will challenge you to it. Just tell me if you would like to debate this resolution.
