This was one weakness among the strengths of the Romans as they promoted the rule of law. The Roman Republic did a moderate job meeting the common good, but there were several areas that could have used improvement. They should have treated their Auxiliary soldiers fairly, and made sure that their laws treated everyone equally. The Roman Republic also should have had safer entertainment that didn’t force people to fight to the death. Although Ancient Romans didn’t do everything in their power to meet the common good, they still became a very powerful empire and controlled

Rome would not enter a war or do something that put its people at risk. Carthage did not care about its general population's safety. Could this attitude be one of the reasons Rome was able to destroy it so easy? While I cannot say for certain if the reason Carthage fell was due to its government, I can say that during the time Rome was a republic, it was unstoppable, and Carthage never had that power. It appears to me that governments, when in the hands of the people, work better than monarchies or oligarchies.
Julius Caesar did a lot of accomplishments that were not only political, but, literary and historical. One of Julius Caesar 's significant achievements was to keep the attack of Rome by the clans of Gaul, amid he Gallic Wars. This made him exceptionally rich, however it additionally made Rome wealthier as well. Be that as it may one of Caesar 's greatest achievements was something he did well before he was murdered.

Western Civilization 101 Part 1: Roman Republic Roman Republic’s social structure was entirely based on wealth, freedom, property and heredity. Just like any other ancient society in the world history, the Roman Republic was also entirely controlled by men who were at the top of the social hierarchy. More so, the slaves were at the bottom of the social hierarchy while the women and the common people, referred to as the plebeians, followed closely. Going upwards, the wealth citizens followed the women and they were characteristic of using their wealth to acquire power. The top most class of people on the social hierarchy were the class of rulers who governed the republic and ensured adherence to the law was strictly followed.

These multi-level apartment blocks were built as high and tightly together as possible and held far less status and convenience than the private homes of the prosperous. The homes of the early Etruscans, predecessors of the Romans, were simple, even for the wealthy or ruling
Then, the people (only male citizens back then) voted and had a huge impact on the resulting laws. Oligarchy is the second form of ruling, still keeps the rule from all of the people but there is a group of people instead of just one person so it was kind of different. It was the most common form of government and often occurred when democracy went wrong. The law
As a result, they did not have as much political power in Rome. During this time, Rome was run as a republic, a state where power is held by the people and their elected representatives. In Rome, they had two consuls who were in complete power and the Senate who would make the laws. Any male
What is unemployment? Unemployment is a situation in which someone or a lot of people do not have work and do not have an income. How unemployment relates to South Africa In South Africa we have the worst youth-unemployment in the world, because there are a lot of youth who drop-out of high school or university and they do not have a job or something that they can do to keep themselves occupied- so this will result in our economy dropping because there aren’t that many people employed thus leading to a lot of investors not wanting to invest in our country. We still live in a country where the effect of the system apartheid is still used today, think about it: The children at all-white schools (usually private/independent) majority of them go to university, have a job, and a privileged life. The children at schools all-black schools (usually dependent on Government) they usually do not go to university, do not have a sustainable job, and an unprivileged life.
