The Romans were responsible for meeting the common good of the people of Rome, and I’ll grade them according to the five indicators of meeting the common good. I believe that the Roman Republic performed a good job when providing public services, and meeting the common good. The first reason why I believe the Roman Republic met the common good is, there were public baths that patricians and plebeians could all use. Baths were free, or very reasonably priced. This met the common good, because all the people of Rome could get clean after a hard day in the fields.
In this paper I argue that the Egyptians’ documents supported the idea that Re wanted the best for his people in many aspects and provided for them to ensure their wellbeing. In this paragraph I argue that the Egyptian creation story shows Re giving his people bountiful resources so that they may live and live well. In the creation of Egypt, or Khemet, Re made the topography of the land to favor the Egyptian people. The Egyptian creation story states, “[Re] protected the land with great barriers of desert, and created the river Nile so that it 's waters would flood the land and rich crops would be plentiful.” (2) Re provided the Nile for the Egyptians that provided food, which gave them life. Re also provided the desert, which protected them from the dangers that lay beyond the desert.

I hope that, through this, you have come to recognize everything that I have found in the same wonder as I. I have learned also about how the Western world was influenced by this. Our myths that we tell children for entertainment or lessons and government are very good examples. Not only the Aegean Sea culture but all of Greece up until Roman occupation was part of this influence.
We have all heard the phrase, “make yourself feel at home.” In Homeric times, this phrase was meant literally. Today, we have our own form of hospitality and although it may not be as extensive and as serious as it is portrayed in the Odyssey, today’s hospitality is still relatable to those times. Hospitality was expected of all guest and host relationships. Xenia held both social and religious importance, as it was believed in ancient Greece that any person could actually be a god in disguise. In turn, xenia is a very important and prevalent major theme throughout Homer’s Odyssey.

Assurbanipal and His Queen in the Garden is an example of Assyrian art from the Ancient Near East. This panel depicts many people eagerly serving and surrounding an apparent affluent couple in a garden.

What really jumps out to me is the detail and structure of how it was made.
They were also had far much more money and industrial power. The north did have its hindrances though. Northern officers were terrible compared to southern officers. Because of their experience in the Mexican American war, southern military commanders were able to more effectively lead troops. The casualty rate between the two sides remained to be in favour of the confederates, and In some cases, battle

It changed over the eras from one that accentuated local deities into a general religion with a smaller number of primary deities. There wasn’t a sole belief system, but the Egyptians shared a public understanding about the conception of the world and the chance of deteriorating to chaos if the destructive forces of the
