Murkans like to give Lip Service to our “bessin brah-diss” servin’ in our Cannonfodder Clodhopper Factory aka Da Murkan Miltree: Redneck Righty Republicants are the most susceptible to this hereditary flagwaving of reactionary propaganda.
When Rome was great, its soldiers were prized citizens similarly equipped with the best gear. At the end, they were debased mercs dressed worse than their barbarian foes.
Actuallym those last “roman” soldiers were not Roman at all; they were barbarians themselves. They were mercenaries – foreign mercs. Roman BIGov couldn’t even …..…..get actual Romans to fight anymore, so they paid the lesser peoples they conquered to be their triggermen. Disinterested, effete* Roman Bois disregarded the military.
They had shabby clothes, cheap shoes, chain mail instead of expensive hammered armor – and bad training; they wore the ancient equivalent of…sweatpants. Gone were the dyed tunics, ivory sword handles, gleaming armor, rigorous training, hardcore discipline and regulation shaved skin. The last Roman soldiers were hairy, swarthy slobs.
The fearsome, original Romans had fancy segmented armor, handcrafted footwear and were equipped with fine linens & woolens. Gold-inlaid metal embellishments, ivory decorated swords and ornate shields outfitted sturdy fighters trained for years. They built the famous roads you may have heard about – or not, if you’re a dumb hick.
