1.Dominant? ?Powers:? ?Rome and America are very powerful actors in their world. Their power has both
military and the ‘soft power’ of language, culture, commerce, technology, and ideas. Rome and america
are very powerful figures in the world at this point in time.
2.? ?Equal? ?in? ?Size:? ?Rome and America are close in physical size. The Roman Empire and the
mediterranean sea fits in 3 million square miles of the lower 48 states. Rome and America are very close
in size because there physical sizes are pretty close.
3.? ?Global? ?Influence:? ?Rome and America created global structures structures. Administrative, economic,
military, cultural. The rest of the world took gravity and photosynthesis for granted. They both influenced
the world in there own way. But both of the societies dominant stature was taken for granted within their
own societies and the world.
4.? ?Open? ?Society:? Both of the societies are made up of many peoples. They are open to newcomers,
willing to absorb the lifestyles. To grant citizenship to incoming tribes from all corners of the earth. These
