>>578130 Marius was one of 2 consuls, was elected 7 times, which isn't even that long even if it was totally unacceptable. But it was a time of complete crisis and marius was the most capable military leader they had at the time. There was no dictatorship about it, you're being ridiculous. there was no "marius rule".
>>578112 Athens had an Empire post-Persian war but didn't have a single strong executive position like that of an Emperor to rule over the Demos. From what I recall, closest thing they had was one guy chosen out of a few elder magistrates who's term was very short and constantly rotate, but the role was more of an authority thing when the electorates were in session.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperialism In short: an Empire is a land/state/country that is conquering other countries to form one big thing, where only the main country is getting richer and the claimed others pay the bill. So today the U.S. is the Empire that thinks the World belongs to them, until they realize that this is and was never the case. You just got the worst argument--your military, that´s why all of us politicians bow to you and shut up. Great! If the U.S. were wise they would stop their effort to conquer the World, because your fucking way of Life destroys everything. Stop it!
