'Rome Wasn't Built In A Day' - BLOG POST
Today I came to a realisation, and it made me think of things which I hadn’t really thought about up till now.
Back in the days of the Roman Empire, there was a great deal of ‘buggery’ going on. What do I mean by ‘buggery’? Well, fornication, orgies and so on and so forth. The word itself is closely linked to another word, ‘sodomy’, and I cannot help but note the irony in it.
Today, there is probably a lot more of it going on than is let on, even with the advent of social media and the fact that anyone, anywhere can now get an idea of what is going on in the world at any given time; they simply type in a phrase in an internet browser and the first thing that usually comes up is news…
Now, everyone (okay, not everyone but certainly a great number of people) is probably out fornicating right now, as I write this. It’s likely, and quite probable, that nobody cares about what I have to say on the subject, but nonetheless I hazard putting my opinion down on a page.
We’re living in a world, a very large world, where almost every single country is now over-populated to the extent where the terms, sodomy, and even erotica. We all pretend to be morally sound.
People will go onto a social platform, and post, using the most offensive wording possible, about how offensive it is for another person to toss their cigarette butt out of the window of a moving vehicle. Note the irony, and note too, that said people will be posting said post, from the perception that they are on the moral high-ground, looking down upon those deemed moral miscreants.
Consider, for a moment, that in the 60’s and the 70’s sex was something like ‘free hugs’. It was like saying ‘Hello’. A lot of people who met, and introduced their genitals to one another, back in those days don’t actually remember each other’s names. There are celebrities who, by their own admission, have had over 1000 sexual partners. During the days of the Roman Empire, it was far worse than this, and having multiple partners, even simultaneously, was perfectly acceptable.
These days, if you have maybe 10 sexual partners, you might just contract a venereal disease.
Now think on this; the people masquerading as saints, who appear to be devoid of even one filthy thought, can quite readily utilise the term, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’.
Rome was beautiful, and still is. To this day, buildings that were built in that era, thousands of years ago, are still standing. It was built by people who were busy committing acts of buggery and sodomy, but that is conveniently not mentioned nowadays.
Amazingly, they were able to build an empire, an empire, without such inventions as the internet or even computers. Hell, they didn’t even have electricity.
And yet here we are today, the pots calling the kettles black, pointing fingers, judging, and I have only this to say-
Rome wasn’t built in a day….
