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?
>>
>>53217123

We'd probably see a terran empire and never experience those problems.
>>
>>53217123

Southern Europe would be the cultural capital of the world and might be making Mars into a province right now
>>
Would women be slaves and trannies executed?

Considering how the Romans were big degenerates I still see these degenerates getting their rights.
>>
>>53217209

Romans fucked little boys and had gay action all around but if you never married and proclaimed yourself gomosex, you'd be seen as a sick weirdo.

>>53217123
The Roman empire actually stagnated scientific development tbqhwyf

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.
Rome fell.
The Hungarians fell.
The Vikings fell.
Napoleon fell.
The British Empire fell.
The Soviet Union fell.
Eventually the US will fall, too.
>>
>>53218026
The United States is a democracy not an empire.
>>
>>53218026
Were Germans the niggers of the Roman Empire?
>>
>>53218367
they had a lot of germanic slaves who chimped out every now and then
>>
>>53218026
>We're like the Afghanistan of Europe
I couldn't agree more
>>
hard to tell, decentralization is key here. There is reason why we could invent things much faster when there were more countries and italy was just a bunch of provinces.

>>53217123
No, we'd still be living in caves and ooga booga
>>
>>53218367
No, Germans were the best soldiers in the Roman legions.
>>
>>53219910
That's not what you Germans said last night.
>>
>>53217123
but Rome survied in Vatican, America

>>53218026
Vandals were Poles though.

Personally I'd have gone with Turkey but I guess that works too.
>>
>>53225180
Turkey is not the nemesis of empires. Afghanistan is.
>>
>>53220807
dunno what you mean
>>
>>53227868
You tried several times to create empire and failed miserably.
Most of your attempts just resulted in chaos and suffering for everyone
>>
Rome fell in the 1500s, so what are you on about OP?
>>
>>53218026
>Furor Teutonicus

more like Furor Cuckonicus desu senpai

Rome fell in 1923.
>>
>>53227964
Doesn't clarify anything. What is meant with "last night" and what was said by "you Germans"?
>>
>>53218026
the germans are so barbaric they even fell themselves
>>
>>53228471
It can have certain sideeffects. But not the ones you think.

They united. First under the HRE.

>>
>>53217123
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.
>>
>>53217123
Rome is my favourite empire
>>
>>53230762
But you literally answered your question.
The roman legacy surounds europe no matter what we do. Its everywhere. Alphabet, languages, architecture and so on.
>>
>>53217123
They were close to developing the steam-engine and a calculus close to the collapse.
>>
>>53230750
and?
>>
>>53230940
That was Prussia that united Germany and Prussia was Germanised Balts and Pollacks.
>>
>>53218352
empire - very powerful state
>>
>>53230981
Prussia did the second unity. But it left out some Germans, particularly the Austrians and Swiss.
>>
>>53227787
t. Afghan """'refugee"""
>>
>>53230887
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.
>>
>>53231075
You weren't a "one" country but more as a federation of multiple states.

Alexander the Great, Britain, Soviet Union, USA. Afghanistan is the nemesis of empires.
