How come I knew this would happen.  First, I did mention that I could
remember who or where that came from, but it _was_ after the roman empire
fell, when the rebuilding had begun.  That's why I picked it.  Also, I did
say that I wasn't talking to or about anyone... I just picked a message to
start from.

Have people forgotten what don't take this personally means?

Yes, the empires and dynasties that have fallen have rotted away from the
inside out... I'm not debating that.  What I am was saying was that young
people aren't the villians that they are made out to be.

Now I'm stopping because this is an FB list.
