Prelude: "Inclusivity" is perhaps the single most important human need to facilitate and demonstrate fairness for all members in an open and free society. When this principle need is compromised by appearances of unscrupulous self-interested privileged elites to perpetuate a systemic widening disparity between social-economic classes favoring exclusivity, it is imminently imperative to galvanize public opposition to mitigate this threat. A society that is governed by its collective citizenry should never be marginalized by its institutions or the people that run them. No institution should be more esteemed than its human beings. Rt. (reckless thinker)
Thesis: The use of sociology to inform and provide a comparative analysis of human behavior spanning across several millennia is quite an effective and useful tool for predicting the tendentious course of historic parallels. Past events are shaped by social, economic and political conditions and informed by geography, religion, art, technology and the inherited traditions and values that distinguish one culture from another. The aggregate of these elements form civilizations, whereupon close study reveals the unique characteristic customs that make them different in appearance. In spite of these differences, social behavior within these systemic structures remains reliably consistent. In other words, under similar conditions human beings respond and react similarly. This study seeks to expand the range of historic inquiry beyond the parallels that connect the present to the past by using conditional evidence to forecast events in the future. The object here is to paint in broad strokes the social, political and economic phenomenon that intermittently jarred the Roman Republic through three tumultuous episodic periods of their history. The journey will draw comparisons with Rome that precisely parallel America from 1963 to 2011, beginning with the assassination of Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus and the subsequent trucidation of his brother Gaius Gracchus, to the end of the Republic and establishment of the Roman Empire under Augustus Caesar. Ultimately, this study will support an argument which suggests that Roman Civilization was not only indistinguishably paralleled to the culture of the USA, but also, that its history foreshadowed the Kennedy assassinations, 9/11 with its subconsequent loss of social freedoms, the Occupy Wall Street protests, and the inevitable plutocracy presently emerging on the world stage to usher in a global Monocratic Empire.
