"Your foreign policy. Your soldiers now serving an army but that means you get loot when we win And this is how we're going to do it. And this is how rome is able to build the deep well of military resources that enable them to for instance compete with carthage in the punic wars. Which are these knock down. Drag out fights The first punic war goes from to sixty four to forty one twenty three year long war and to be clear. That's not one of these on again off again. You declare peace for a few years and that is twenty three years of continuous high intensity military operations. The second punic war isn't a whole lot shorter from two eighteen to two zero two And for fourteen years of that. Hannibal has cartagena army in italy. Stomping around smashing up roman armies. Because he's an almost unbeatable. General and the romans are able to continue competing in that space because their alliance system gives them access to the manpower and resources of all of these non romans so it's the roman management successful roman management of diverse italy that enables them to get their empire in the first place and they don't stop doing this The romans don't make allies when they go outside of italy they make provinces but they then promptly begin recruiting those provincials into the roman army By the reign of tiberius. The second emperor. We're told that. Half of the roman army were the legions which consisted of italians. Now all by this point all the italians are roman citizens to these. The citizen legions. The other half of the roman army where the auxiliary troops recruited from the provinces. These are non roman citizens indeed. The reward for twenty years of service was getting citizenship That was one of the rewards for serving in the zulia and these guys are drawn from all over the empire and so the romans are very aggressive in trying to Again it's it's entirely cynical and opportunistic. They just want to win battles but to win battles They need to harness these diverse populations. And i don't think it's an accident that the political entity that ended up being the best and mobilizing resources from diverse populations in the ancient mediterranean was itself a diverse diversity. Those patterns of thought. That made you politically successful. In diverse tumultuous city like rome and roman italy are likely to be the patterns of thought that are going to make you successful at harnessing Diverse populations abroad and again. This doesn't mean the romans were tolerant. They often weren't it certainly doesn't mean they were committed to tolerance. They weren't the romans. If intolerance and brutality served roman anes they would do that to The romans could be very savage conquers. The process of becoming part of the roman empire was incredibly traumatic and brutal Even in the ancient world which was a pretty doggy dog plays. The romans had a reputation for being nasty. 'cause that tells you a lot I want to talk about warfare. I think you're critical in a recent set of oppose about the idea that there is a universal warrior experience and i. I was surprised to read that. I i do tend to think.

"Apple ace appalachia's okay. Because it got it got started. So why does this matter. I mean it's lovely it's nice. They were diverse. It's interesting that hbo or the bbc or mad loved. I claudius but when i was younger. I don't know if i could watch it now. It's it's slow by modern standards loved the book too by the way robert graves love. It loved it known. If i read it now said amazingly i enjoyed much then Those people all look like Claudius what's his name. Derrick derek. Jacobi very pale person extremely pale And his fellow actors and actresses were also quite pale. So that's interesting you know. It's nice why is it important. So i think it's important for a few reasons the the one that really prompted me to write the series. Is that often. This misconception of the romans as having been at some point in their past a homogeneous and usually this is left unstated but often very crucial argument homogeneous and white people gets used to perch all sorts of political arguments on you. Most recently perhaps noted Nile ferguson a noted historian but notably not a historian of the ancient world. My colleague at the hoover institution. It's deal by the way carry on. He made an argument that was really abou- migration into contemporary migration into the european union but that a mobilized sort of understanding of the romans sort of the essentials of roman this being lost as the barbarians migrated into rome and you see forms of that argument in less carefully constructed ways. This idea that rome begins as a homogenous. Community expands on the strength of that homogeneous community becomes diverse therefore becomes weak therefore collapses as an argument against would essentially multi-cultural multi-ethnic policies. Right this is an argument in favor of the nation. State and against multiethnic states. But that's simply not historically speaking what happened. Rome was a multiethnic state at its outset We know from archaeology that even in our earliest evidence for rome. We're talking here now. Nine hundred eight hundred bc. The roman republic won't be founded until five. Oh nine sore. Hundreds of years before even the roman republic much less the roman empire that we see that rome is a frontier town. Rome exists at the cultural meeting points of three different major cultural groups the latins to their south who speak one language. It's the language of the romans will speak latin. Then the sabe lines to their east and north. These are hill people. They speak a different osco umbrian language. They're culturally distinct. And then their north thyatira trust skins who perhaps the most different of the bunch they speak trust skin which is unrelated to any living language. It is a non indo european language. Hold over in europe so the atrocities abandoned nutria. We suppose for a very long time indeed longer than the latins have been in leyshon for instance do you trust can have a different religious completely different religious system then most of the rest of italy. They're really different. People and rome comes together at the meeting point of those cultural zones and it isn't quite any of them. The romans don't regard themselves as latins Though they know that they're latins among them they don't regard themselves seibu though they know that there are seibu and settled in rome They certainly don't regard themselves as a trust skins. Though again they adopt a lot of trust can culture there clearly. A trust in the early roman community. It seems that a number of rome's early kings were skin. And so rome begins as this frankly melting pot society perched inbetween these cultural zones. That only increased as as roma expands. We tend to think of italy. Particularly i think americans tend to think of italy is. The italians are a single group of people. I mean one. You won't hear that if you ask any italians asam northern italians what they think of sicilians And whether they think that they're the same they have the same culture You know You'll get different stories But this was even more true in the roman world in many ways the modern italian identity that holds the country together is a creation of the roman empire. It doesn't exist before it and so when the romans are expanding through italy they're dealing with galls trust skins greeks latin sabe lines Sam nights and and dozens of smaller people's There are more than a dozen different languages spoken in pre roman italy. Three different religious systems and the romans aren't pushing these other people out that would defeat the purpose. The romans are and i do want us and are always cynical. Opportunists and so and with the romans are interested in is developing military power and so obviously if you conquer a group of people their manpower their resources. You want to harness that for your military. So with the romans. Do they expand through italy as they follow it. I jokingly call the goku model of imperialism. I beat you therefore we are friends. I'm probably dating myself with that reference but the romans tend to they defeated community. And it's congratulations. We beat you We're gonna take some of your land. We're gonna take a lot of your stuff. That process of conquest very unpleasant. You're now an ally of rome when we go to war you go to war with us. We have all the same friends all the same enemies. Rome sets your foreign policy. Your soldiers now serving an army but that means you get loot when we win.

"I teach the battle of cash. But i don't off the top of my head okay. we're getting less of you but fascinating lee So this is a treaty between the hittite empire and the new kingdom if egypt's In in the bronze age so for people thinking this is pre biblical times. The kingdom of israel does not exist yet at this point historically And and the fascinating thing is that we have two versions of the treaty. We have from from the archives at We actually have the hittite copy of the treaty written in acadian uniforms standard diplomatic language of time and then in egypt we have hieroglyphics translation of the treaty on temple and they match and it's incredibly useful of course translation and interpretation so fascinating because we also have a battle an account of the battle that leads to the treaty. The treaty comes from ten years later but the major battles were the battle of qadesh again inscribed on a temple wall in in egypt. The amusing thing is that the egyptians represent this battle as a tremendous overwhelming victory. Which just reading the treaty makes it. Obvious it's not it was kind of a debacle and a bloody draw and then so we have this work of propaganda about the battle. The good reminder that are ancient sources occasionally fib to us. Yes it does Skepticism as always in order. Let's let's talk about rome. We have a series of essays. Which i very much enjoyed and you start with the observation that in most representations in movies and mini series of the roman empire. The actress speak the queen's latin. We explain what you mean by that. And and what the point why you bring that up. Yeah so. I i started with this observation and this is something i've been. I've been noticing a while. And i didn't invent the phrase the queen's latin. I'm not the first person to coin that the tendency at least in in english speaking film and tv and video games is to represent the romans and this goes back even if you look at the old sword and sandal. Epics of the nineteen fifties. They do this. The romans are represented with british actors. Speaking with Very proper british accents and And they do so like it's very intentional and a very homogeneous they all have the same roman accents. This joke right. They don't speak the queen's english. They speak the queen's latin. And i think that this has come to influence the way that the public imagines wrong and what we think about when we think of the romans to the point that the occasionally accurate depiction of the romans strikes people is wrong. And you'll get all sorts of people on the internet complaining. That they that they did it wrong. There's a recent recent store. I can't remember which which show it was where Apparently briefly was glimpsed. A black roman soldier in roman britain and parts of the internet had fit. And i was sitting here banging my head on a desk because we know there were black. Roman soldiers in roman britain. It's not always the most reliable source but the historian gusts augusta. A history of some of the leader roman emperors flat out tells us that septicemia severance runs into one in britain So this is not a matter of debate. I mean we we know and two people it it struck them is so bizarre unreal. Because i think that the romans looked more or less like the house of lords in in britain and of course the romans did toga in tony. In togo's in togas. And of course they didn't i in in that post i kept using a screen shot of. Hbo's rome in the senate because they're all your pardon me. They're all very white. And we know that some romans had very fair complexions but of course if you've been to italy Most italians do not look like northern europeans. Right they have that classic olive skin tone and of course. The roman empire was a mediterranean empire. Which means it included parts of africa It included parts of asia in western western asia. And those people were often romans too by the first and second century. They're showing up in the senate and so you know the mental image of romans. I mean absolutely. It should include romanized gauls and britons. Who would have been presumably quite white. But lots of italians. north africans some number of sub saharan africans and up inside the roman empire. That is very clear again fairly well. Established and not marginal people either You know i talk about appalachia who a roman author writes in latin roman citizen. Upper class writes the world's oldest complete surviving novel The golden ass. You can go read it it's hilarious. It's a comedy Dark comedy but a comedy Not g. rated but it's funny And he describes himself as as half numidian and half guy toolan two different north african peoples and he is from north africa. It makes sense Frontier has a great line In a letter to I believe it's to marcus. Aurelius the emperor. Where he describes himself as i am libyan of the libyan nomads which is just a pretty flat declaration of like. Yeah no. he's really. He's really aggravating. A frontier to be clear sat in the roman senate and was tutor to emperors. This man at the very pinnacle of roman society In the roman empire and so the real wrong doesn't look very much like a bbc production of rome again. It's not that there aren't fair skinned romans. There are but they're romans from all over the mediterranean world in all sorts of complexions even within roman italy as a side note and again as anyone who has been to italy. We'll tell you. There's a wide range of complexions and physical appearances than italy Even just walking down the street in rome today you will see every every sort of every caller of people and one of the things i demonstrate. I can't do this on a podcast. Because i can't have pictures but i go through a whole lot of roman fresco. Should that it wasn't any different. Rome was a pretty pretty diverse place. So you got your description. The mask i..

"When you think of great britain. What do you think of a modern country with the prime minister elections and people from all over the world. Or maybe you think of the kings and queens who ruled for hundreds of years for the royal family of today with queen elizabeth prince edward and prince harry. Or maybe you think of it as your home. Today we're going to travel to britain but it will be the britain of almost two thousand years ago. This was before the kings and queens. We think of as being a major part of england's history. We're going to meet a queen though. This queen ruled an ancient tribe called the icy ni-. She inspired her people and made great sacrifices for them when they needed it most. They needed an inspiring leader because this was a troubling time for them. This was a time when their island was becoming part of the roman empire. But wait isn't roman. Italy yes it is.

They're in near collapse because they've shut out American tourism tourist wouldn't go there if they could, and many times they can't So Jay Ratliff welcome again of the Bill Cunningham Show and J and you're 30 or 40 years in the airline industry. Have you ever seen anything like this? I'm not tell me what's going on. It's unprecedented, bill. I mean, a lot of times when we have AH crisis. Like the current virus crisis. The first question is, is it as bad as it was after the attacks of 9 11 Well, 9 11 we saw drop in traffic of about 12 to 15%. Well, the Corona virus. I mean, we've seen a drop more than 90 93 94%. So it's again something that the airlines right now losing tens of millions of dollars. They're doing everything they can to try to restore, you know, passenger confidence, which is the reason that they're really kind of holding people to the wall against this mass policy. In fact, American Airlines had at one time a medical exemption where you basically he had a medical condition that provided prevented you from wearing a mask. No problem. But as of Wednesday this week No, They're no longer going to allow that. If you can't wear a mask, you're not going to be allowed the flight, United Airlines said not only it on an airplane, you need to wear the mask but throughout the entire airport from the time you walk in, and if you fail to do so. They could actually ban you from flying that airline until the mass policy has been released, right And in fact that is not required by the so called experts. We've been told for months that wearing a mask keeps you from spreading. And if you're positive, doesn't keep you from getting it. And I'm also told by medical experts that most of the mass that are available Are too big to large, not meant for the purpose intended, and there's protocols page after page and what to do, wearing a mask in an in an in an O R setting in which you're always violated. There's a way of handling the master way of putting it on the way of taking it off what to do in the meantime, how to cleanse it, and no one is more like a placebo than anything. So in the end, Isn't that a marketing thing that when you have large numbers of people the airlines have got to say, Look, it is safe and fly and so medically is not required. But you're now saying many, many airports. If you get on property, you must have a mask on no matter what their managing the perception of safety and there's really no other way to put it. And I've had people take exception to that. But if you're telling me that I can make a mascot home. And then bring it to the airport, and it qualifies one of these medical improvement. It's an obvious joke. I have two daughters that are both trauma nurses, one that's on the covert unit. And you hear about the dual mass that they have to wear not only one, but too as a way to help them as they're interacting daily with people that have the Corona virus. And when I hear these stories, and I'm seeing airlines say, Well, you can kind of make your own and bring it. It's obvious that these things are not designed to keep us safe. It's designed to make people feel better about When they fly. Now, do they keep us 5% safer? Maybe who knows? But I've also had medical experts. Tell me J. If you wear your mask constantly, and you're constantly breathing. That's something that can work against you when you're not getting the fresh air and Goodness, I had a mask on and sneezed. I didn't dare take it all. Just it's disgusting. But it's a thing right now, where airlines air losing money for the first time in 13 weeks, we've seen a slight drop. And the number of people flying. And that scares airlines. The executives thinking, Wait a minute. Is this a trend for the increased number of reported Corona virus cases is going to cause people to kind of hold off on some future airline reservations, singing every penny they can get right now, so if they can get more people flying by pushing this mask policy bill, they're going to do it and I zip. Now, let's say I can't believe August 1st is This coming Saturday. At this point, What percent are the big airlines to five or six large ones? What are they still down by 85 90% down for about 85% and we're still seeing losses of between 30 and $50 million a day. A day a day and the airlines? Of course, we're not allowed to Lay anyone off until October 1st because they took money payroll money from the government through the cares act, and that was designed to keep their employees going till October 1st, and most airlines, including a union united they're looking at is much of me 45% of their domestic workforce, perhaps 36,000 people being laid off. American Airlines is flowing out a number of 25,000 the airline I was really interested in watching Bill Southwest Airlines and their 49 years they've never laid anyone off ever. So they pushed out to their employee thing. Look, you know, we need to take care of our team. If anybody wants to take a early retirement or extended leave of absence will do it. They have, like 60,000 employees. Bill nearly 20,000 step board said. We'll take it so that just unbelievable and it makes me think Southwest maybe able after that, October 1st deadline to keep that incredible streak going, and I wouldn't be surprised in the next few days. July 31st what is Friday? I wouldn't be surprised if Democrats or Republicans get together and say something to the effect that we have to save the airline industry. Because if, at the end of the day you don't save the five or six big ones. You don't have a country to come back on the other side. You can't let Delta American United Southwest Frontier. I'll go away because it's in the national interest to keep them and almost too big to fail. But speaking about too big to fail, Warren Buffett has got some serious flak not only in investing and buying all that Wells Fargo and that and that hunt ketchup and all that, but the airline stocks what everybody lost billions of dollars in his first quarter loss for Berkshire was 50. $1,000,000,000 when he was buying cheers of Delta Airlines and Southwest, especially the Delta Airlines stock when he was buying it $45 a share. I was like, What are you doing? Because I'm a flip stocks quickly, But he's the buy and hold kind of guy. But you could see I mean, from a miles away that the the demand for travel was dropping. We had the unknown with the Corona virus. We were seeing more airlines pull back on their flight schedule. We were seeing the number of people that were flying continue to decline. And there was really no quick response to that. But people as so many do the look at the chart and say, Hey, this stock was trading at X amount six months ago, and it's down to here, so it's obviously a bhai will not always. I mean, don't maybe down 55% year to date, But that doesn't mean now's a good time to buy it because of the turbulence that we've got. Coming ahead. And you're right. The summers when airlines make most of their money, they're not. September is one of the slowest travel months of the year. So as we limp our way through the next six weeks, the airlines they're going to be like, okay, the demand for travels out there. I don't see him ceasing to ply bill, but some of them may go the route of Chapter 11. It goes well into next year. I don't think anything's gonna happen this year. And most airlines have done that..

We've seen a slight drop in the number of people flying in that scares airlines, the executives thinking. Wait a minute. Is this a trend for the increased number of reported Corona virus cases? Is going to cause people to kind of hold off on some future airline reservations, singing every penny they can get right now, so if they can get more people flying by pushing this mass policy bill, they're going to do it and I zip. Now, let's say I can't believe August 1st. Is this coming Saturday? At this point? What percent are the big airlines? The five or six large ones? What are they still down by 85 90% down for about 85%. And we're still seeing losses of between 30 and $50 million a day. A day a day and the airlines? Of course you're not allowed to Lay anyone off until October 1st because they took money payroll money from the government through the cares act, and that was designed to keep their employees going till October 1st, and most airlines, including a union united, they're looking at as much as me 45% of their domestic workforce, perhaps 36,000 people being laid off. American Airlines is flowing out a number of 25,000 the airline I was really interested in watching Bill Southwest Airlines and their 49 years they've never laid anyone off ever. So they pushed out to their employee thing. Look, you know, we need to take care of our team. If anybody wants to take a early retirement or extended leave of absence will do it. They have, like 60,000 employees. Bill nearly 20,000 step, Ford said. We'll take it so vet just unbelievable. And it makes me think Southwest maybe able after that, October 1st deadline to keep that incredible streak going and I wouldn't be surprised in the next few days. July 31st what is Friday? I wouldn't be surprised if Democrats or Republicans get together and say something to the effect that we have to save the airline industry because if a TN of the day you don't save the five or six big ones, you don't have a country to come back on the other side. You can't let Delta American United Southwest Frontier. I'll go away because it's in the national interest to keep them and almost too big to fail. But speaking about too big to fail, Warren Buffett has got some serious flak not only in investing and buying all that Wells Fargo and that and that hunt ketchup and all that, but the airline stocks. What would everybody lost billions of dollars..

"roman italy" Discussed on Ideas

"Hello hello to get a better sense of renaissance Italy and what reputation meant to people in those days we spoke to Larry Nassar Dover. I'm Laurie now. Stewart for and I'm professor America Data History and letters at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. My specialty is history of early modern Europe and in particular Roman Italy Italy. She's also an expert on early modern masculinity and gender in Renaissance Rome. She points out that the medieval concept of honor still held sway in that period period. Honor is a quality of respect that everyone felt they were owed in medieval and Renaissance Times. We have have a notion of respect in contemporary time. Sits based on are being an individual Our sense of a What we're owed in terms of respect is based on being human being and back then what you were road in terms of respect with based on your social status in your gender and how did that play out then in terms of the average person wandering around Renaissance Rome for example? We can't do averages right because it depends on social status gender but if you were a woman and someone put an insulting picture on your door your own honor would be as a woman would be shamed by that but it would be the man who was the head of the household whether it was your father your brother or your husband who had to Exact a penalty against whoever wise that had shamed you so for men. There honor was vulnerable. Both your personal insult and also to insult to family household so woman under their protection had to be benched if her honor was offended did and of course. They had to avenge their own on our if it was offended in any way so it sounds like a fulltime job. Then this protection it is. It's something that on an everyday basis people of all range of social status and gender are aware of at all times. If you are insulted or you're in a group of men and in which one of your companions insulted you're required to respond in some aggressive way you're not allowed to just sit there and take it and turn the other cheek. The way can happen. You just let it turn the other cheek you lose social face you lose respect your social identity out there in the world is impaired. People will whisper about you or attack Tanuku behind your back and you may also be attacked by large groups of talks at other points because you have not stood up for a yourself. Defending honor was a particular obsession back then stepped onto the street. And you'd be constantly focused on hierarchies and powerplays so if you're a man strolling down a narrow alleyway you have to figure out whether the guy coming towards you should be given the right of way because he's from a family or what if you're splashed by mud is someone. The posh carriage passes by was just an accident or was it a death and because of that you have to be ready to defend your honor. There's very dangerous. I mean if I have to defend my honour any given moment I could end up in a dual you could actually end up in a fight. Duels are specific kind of fight with lots of rules around them. The dual has its own special history as a way of negotiating. Honor if you are assaulted assaulted or insulted in some way by someone who or by group of people who you think are lower rank than you then you don't the challenge them or challenge person to dual you go home and get your band of thugs to lie in. Wait for them tonight. But if someone of your equal rank insults you're offends you then you might challenge them to a duel in order to avenge venture honor and that goes back to the Middle Ages. The dual was originally a way of establishing the truth of a claim came in a conflict in which God would be the one who would decide who was who was right and who was wrong in the conflict and going back to the idea of status this and symbolism and embodiment of status what did carrying a sword represent that was the symbol all of your noble status your status as the gentleman and you're banned hood. Everyone male or female. Whatever class class had their sense of honor but the sword was assigned that you were in the retinue of gentleman or you were the gentleman and that you were man it's also way to retaliate? So it's something that you hope will strike fear into shoe anyone who might threaten you and so the fancier your sword than the more manly you are and more powerful you are to the people around you know. I think it's your skill in using your sword and how many men you have around you. Who have them ready to respond to your command? So it's not the sword it's it looks yes looking back on. This may be an end of an nearer in a sense of that honor system. What do you think about leaving that behind a loss? I think honor is ridiculous. I think that people are owed respect on the basis. They're being human beings. There are peaceful ways in which you can bring up your your complaints about how you've been treated and sometimes you need to organize support for that. But I think all of that can be conducted to peacefully that we don't have to resort to weapons. Is there anything that we can take from the era of the dual that a AH or twenty-first-century could learn from well. I like the idea of having president's challenge each other to what do will and having conflicts resolved by those two individuals fighting it out rather than armies because there's going going to be less loss of life but this has not been a popular remedy in history it would make things much more efficient on the international relations nations scale. We use that money for something else. I want a Putin versus Trudeau Dolphin. Whoever wins xactly we know there are? You can make arguments on the Lori. Thank you so much for this time and for your insights place. Her Lorena store for is a professor emeritus of history and letters at Wesleyan university stay at PhD student. Aaron media is back in studio with us. Hi Erin Hello. We have covered some basics now. We heard about notions of honour. We know that jewel is complex and ritualistic and not just a sword fight but can meet zoom in on what you're looking at. What what are we still need to understand and about what was happening with the deal during this period so much probably while it's fresh in mind it's best to kind of start with what Lori was talking about? I mean one of the really big things. I think that's really really useful to to understand. is the collective nature of everything going on as powder formulas I I believe. That's the appropriate term right. The head of the household you're responsible for the servants. The women in there and you're responsible for their honor that's a sign of reputation as well so it's like he treats a family well he treats the servants well. This collective notion has to become much bigger and I think this is one of the the barriers that may make what Laurie describes about negotiating. The streets seems so alien to us because we have the sense of the ability to be anonymous in our societies. If you really want to get a sense of the way Roman city works you have to understand the size of it and it's not Toronto. A medium sized Italian city will be the size of Smith Falls. It's it's very much that small town kind of attitude where everyone knows everyone. Everyone talks about everything. One of the things that allows us to go about our business the way we do without having to negotiate the streets in the same way as we can put those people besides just them. We never have to meet them again. We never have to worry about them. There's an entire world I can have outside of them. You can't do that in the renaissance but there are fallacies that have grown up. Because of essentially I think it's called survivor survivor bias. and has to do with what remains to be found. And in this case it's kind of library bias. Your quarrel has to make it to paper and then that that paper has to survive now has a greater chance of surviving if it's printed because there's GonNa be more copies of it so we're talking about what has to happen if you're going to be registered by historians is an steady exactly right and so who can afford to have a printed. It's not the pedestrian on the street. It's gentlemen it's the aristocrats kratz right. And that's a lot of these that I'm dealing with them. A printed form are aristocrats however in the criminal archives in Rome. I've come across people like Shalini or booksellers or guys who just own a house in a little village outside of Rome and so these notions are not necessarily aristocratic radic in the sixteenth century. These these concepts of honor exist across the strata of Italian society by looking at the criminal archives and the prosecutions against duelling done by the lower. We're classes you start to see that honor and this. This whole system of negotiation with the threat of death in a duel on the line is universal throughout Italian society..
