        I didn't say they were exactly the same thing, but for the purposes of my point they are....which is not as long lasting as what we currently use. Generally speaking they are the same or rather one is the product of the other..

          This statement wasn't very well researched.

          How long did the Roman Republic last? The Roman Empire?

          Which had more elements of socialism and fascism, the Republic or the Empire?

          Further, can you give examples of Republics vs. Democracies? I'd like to see where you classify them, considering there have been very, very few true Democracies in the history of the world.

            How long did the Roman Republic last? off the top of my head, roughly 500 years The Roman Empire? start would typically be considered when Ceaser took power, roughly 44 BC

            Which had more elements of socialism and fascism, the Republic or the Empire? depends on your definition of the two

            Athens is probably the best example vs the Roman Republic
            In you lifetime a number of democracies have sprung up and failed.

              Depends on definition? No, if you're going to make blanket statements like that about socialist policies, we need to be sure you know what you're talking about. The socialist influences which also were the basis for fascism in Europe were very different under Republican Rome than they were under the Roman Empire. What were they? Did one have more than the other? If so, how do you account for the fact that both lasted at least 500 years, with one lasting arguably far longer?

                I know what I am talking about. I just don't have the time to educate you today or what everybody else already seems to know. The Roman Empire was an autocratic dictatorship. the Roman Republic was not. Are you sure you know what you're asking? The Roman Empire was not a Democracy. Had no principles generally speaking that you would call democratic.

                Like I said...Republics last longer.

                  Believe me, I know both what I am asking and what I am talking about.

                  "Capitalism will always outlast communism/socialism"

                  Please, speak to the "capitalistic" tendencies of both the Republic and the Empire vs. their "socialist" tendencies. No, it most definitely doesn't depend on how you define the two.
