Founding of the Roman Republic: The Importance of Norms, Class Struggle, and Influence on America

Politics Then and Now

Dec 17 2020 • 16 mins

We dive into the basics and founding of the Roman Republic and what it teaches us about Republics as a whole, including America. We start at the beginning of Rome and examine why and how the Republic was founded, the basics of their government, and the troubles of the early years. We talk about the significance of the establishment of the mos maiorum and the way class struggles defined the early Republic. We also examine how similar the early American Republic was to Rome and extrapolate the larger lessons of Republican governments and apply them to today.
