fall… of great empires like itself. This speech will be a reminder of where America has been, where we are now, and where we could be if we changed course. So in this speech, I will juxtapose three vital components of Rome and America, first comparing our societies, then our governments. Finally, I will show the main difference between America and Rome, and how we might yet be saved. Ancient Roman society was robust, fluid, and exciting. Personal freedoms were at an all-time high, just as they were

There is usually a steady increase in the amount of television watched during a persons' childhood. This is followed by a decline during adolescence. What is more of a concern to the American people, however, is the amount of violence depicted on the television screen. The addition of cable TV also adds a whole new dimension to the problem.
