Scipio Africanus was 24 years old when he first took command of legions

Well commanding a legion is pretty easy compared to say becoming a biologist

2bf most people of the ancient world were retarded. We are so much more advanced and our intelligence has grown enormously. Ancient roman IQs were most likely barely above modern sub saharan tier. And leading legions based on ancient methods of warfare is easy and straightforward compared to our modern ways of waging warfare.

surely but in comparison, aside from technology we are hardly superior to their government or culture.

>>61059505

The bar has been raised incredibly high for humans. We are setting the bar higher than what we are evolving to be capable of.

Now days in the career world people will not respect you until you're in your 30's. We are jumping through more hoops to reach "manhood". A large majority of the population still struggles by like teenagers well into their 20's. The prerequisites to be considered anything worthwhile in society today are built upon years of experience and work. Back in the day every man was needed, they were a tiny fraction of what we have today.

Really? Because sub-saharans are literally incapable of military organization.

Are you mad because biologists said you weren't white?

Just 100 years ago western IQ was ~10 higher than now, studies have said.

I'd bet a dollar it was even higher in ancient times. The smart people acquired the living standard to raise 6+ kids to adulthood. The ascent of modern comfort and reproductive technologies have completely flipped this on its head - now only the dumb have plenty of kids.

>>61064451
This is fact.

Galton's reaction time tests in the UK in the 19th century show 19th century Brits had quicker reaction times (reaction time is an excellent proxy for raw intelligence, look it up).

That's why 18th/19th century Europeans were able to outcompete East Asians, they were more intelligent. But we squandered that human capital on pointless and fratricidal conflicts and welfare for dysgenic fertility.

lmao the average STEM fag would shit and piss his pants and puke out his guts if he even had to speak to +100 people.

Now think about commanding 6000+ men into battle, being responsible for their wellbeing, being responsible for the protection of Rome, the most Glorious City to have ever existed on earth.


This is something only the best of the best can do. The most excellent, well-trained, courageous, disciplined iron will persons.

ROME DEMANDS GLORY OF HER GENERALS

You do know most of the Roman Elite had the possible tutors possible right?

It's like you would have some Ivy League professors hired to teach your kids from a very early age. Besides this knowledge based education they were also taught how to actually act and speak, etc. via the various branches of philosophy which actually made them excellent human beings capable of great things.

School like Stoicism created excellent men in character.
