Those people were subjugated, they never wanted to enter the empire's borders... So we included them in our border

There's a difference, the Germans were too poor and incapable to sustain their populations, so they flooded the border to "seek a better life", you could say, there was an humanitarian crisis in the Baltic and Urals due to climate change, the Christians on the other hand quickly lost their ethnic identity once they spread out in the empire, while the jews spread because we destroyed the temple, but they kept to themselves.

Besides, everybody tends to conveniently ignore one thing, the old gods were weak, any kind of old god is a weak entity that cannot stand the test of time, if Jupiter, Mars and Janus were indeed that strong that they kept the empire stable, how come they were easily supplanted by Isis, Mithras and later by the single God?
Funnily enough, during the actual imperial phase, the olympian religion was already rapidly decaying by itself, as intellectuals turned to either gnosticism or atheism, while the common soldier started worshipping the local gods of the place he was put on post. And then there's the whole Mithras affair.

If Christianity didn't rise some other religion would have supplanted the original Roman religion, rest assured.

People are just jealous that the Church managed to take the reins of power in Rome.

There's also that III century crisis thing which helped a bit. Or rather immensely. But that kind of conversation is against the techniques of spam-jutsu which should be exercised in this thread.

Spam takes its shape according to the nature of the ground it stands upon, "reasoned" arguments are still spam, if they are not inherent to the topic at hand.

So basically in a spam thread, nothing is spam, everything is permitted.

Hence to post and conquer all spam is not supreme excellency, supreme excellency consists in breaking the thread resistance without fighting.

Ironic.

It seemed that no matter the shape we took, the knowledge we used to plot their demise and the weapons we built to undo them, these imbiciles, these rats, these pathetic roaches just wouldn't sit still, they wouldn't acknowledge the obvious thruth... And then, oh how simple it turned out to be, they were no more, vanquished, gone forever! Yes, it was that easy to cull them! Or, rather, to have them cull themselves...

Yes, we only had to shatter our guise, the polished mask of good intentions, and to fully embrace the pleyad of vices that define us. Oh, my dear friends, how good did it feel! The hydra, now not bound to either faith or destiny, limited only by the depth of its own bottomless desire, growing new heads of treachery with but a mere thought...

But why should I expand upon our exploits any further? You need not look around much and you shall begin to understand...

Lay your eyes upon that symbol for a moment. What do you see?

A struggle? Belief? Maybe peace and happiness in the execution of a never-ending duty?

Or the "coat of arms" of a multi-million dollar franchise, owned by the exact people it paints in black and throws at you, the mindless consumer, as the antagonists, the "bad guys"?

Now does reality finally start to take form before you? Who tells you what to think? Who educats you to believe their every word? Who stands behind the 1% and calmly navigates their golden flagship of success through the narrow straits of existence? Why does the fool fear the rocks when they are as solid as a cloud and as real as a dream?

We. Call us what you like, expose us as you wish, curse us with contempt and pray for our destruction. We care not. We will not leave, we will not disappear, we will not die. Our grip will not fade until we've completed our goal, our common Will.

All we want... is everything.




In the end, there was no truth left for you to achieve.

Signed,
Grand Master of the Great Guild of Merchants,
Count P. U. de Bezuhoff

@Count: Hardly something to be proud of.

@NoobX: A+ for that meme usage.

Not so fast, Obama! You forget that my "Wall" terrain card is still in play, allowing me to draw one "Imigration Policy" card from my deck whenever a non-American monster attacks me! And I choose this one, "Send her back!" which permanently denies citizenship, VISAs and asylum rights to all North Africans, including your so precious Exodia.

Your trump card is being deported as we speak! Our great country is no place for dangerous Egyptian extremists and this administration is working its best to ensure that!

But that's not all! Your failed attack activated my trap card,  "Bolton's mustache"! For each monster card on my side of the field it places a "Hezbollah" counter on top of your life points! That makes three of them, one for each of my "Benjamins"! Next turn, because of the "Hezbollah" counters, they'll be able to strike you directly with forbidden chemical substances without condemnation from the UN, dealing 8000 damage and ending your run!

Your time has come, Obama. You never really stood a chance against the greatest economy of the world.

"Benjamins", blast him away, just like I did with China!

MAGA,
Donald J. Trump, US president
