Carthage and Rome, across the Mediterranean, had two rival civilizations. Rome, sought the uniform development of the world, to prevent the development of technology that could cause unrivaled wars and struggles for power, destroying the world. Carthage, sought to reduce societies to migrant nomads, seeking to ply their trade for conspiracy and assassination, the African ideal.
Rome’s invention of the road, allowed for the prevention of technology being developed by anyone using the roads, and instead forced those creating culture, art, academics, utility, or politics, to follow a stable path linked with those nearby using the roaded system, even if the roads were not corrected (a common myth of the day, that roads needed to be linked, that still continues with poor politicians and fundaments scientists that consider themselves scholars). This made it so all new technology had to be invented by children, a a system called the Masons, later the Freemasons and the Lodge, in the New World and the British Commonwealth (respectively). This was Roman civilization, the concept of the slow progress of development to prevent conquests and mass loss of life to new ways of being (riots, starvation, and famine, all the mutual trademarks of an induction of psychosis, ‘spiritualism’ as it had been called at the time and is still called today).
Carthage invented the child sacrifice, allowing for a village of slaves to see the death of a leadership or general’s child, at the hands of an enemy if offered and taken, causing a mass rally of slaves into a shocktrooper line. This would turn an entire culture that had allowed Carthage in, therefore a slave village had been built there, into a migrant mercenary society specializing in espionage, their idea of African society coming from Tyre, Rome’s rival in the origin of both societies’ leaderships (coming from Canaan, having fled from the children of Egypt having come to the Levant as Hebrews, servants among Scythians due to their shellfish allergy). This would cause the culture to become a migrant society of their own hand, rewriting their histories to match their own fraud, with any sensed treachery being grounds for murder of the individual or society having detected it, and any accident of the migrant specialists being grounds for a rumor of the madness of the witness, to place them into ‘lunacy’, the Roman term for a sage (not an artist, as a Carthagian adherent migrant will claim, an act to defraud them).
Societies affected by Rome, are any with roads, the majesty of the simplicity of the civilization, and societies affected by Carthage, are Greece, Yugoslavia, Slovenia, the Alps, Israel, Egypt, North Africa, the Jews, and the Subsaharan Congo.
