What if Rome never fell and survived to today?
Would we still have the technology we do now? Would Germany ever see it's Third Reich? How would Rome handle the Syrian refugee crisis? Would slavery still exist?
Couldn't have. Nobody can have their boots on the neck of Germans indefinitely because of Furor Teutonicus. We're not meant to have an empire of our own. But we're meant to bring empires down. We're like the Afghanistan of Europe.
The Hungarians fell.
The Vikings fell.
The British Empire fell.
The Soviet Union fell.
Eventually the US will fall, too.

Rome fell in 1923.
It can have certain sideeffects. But not the ones you think.
>They united. First under the HRE.
For most of their history they were mostly about not getting conquered, getting rich and conquering.
To be honest, even though Rome did do some cool stuff I don't see why they are prised to be truly the best thing ever.
Although they were a fantastic stepping stone for going forward later on in history.
But they never really moved much beyond that is what I mean. The aplhabet was something from semetic languages it seems and their architecture was pretty but let's not overreact about it. It was arches and a dome plus many aspects came from Greece.
