Rome: Citizenship, Law, Justice
Differences and similarities between Rome and the US
In Rome to become a citizen your father has to born there and you automatically become a citizen. If you were born outside Rome, like your mother, you become a slave. If you were born in the United States, you automatically become a citizen. If you come from an outside country you have to go through a process.
Slavery in ancient Rome differed from its modern forms in that it was not based on race. But like modern slavery, it was an abusive and degrading institution. Cruelty was commonplace. In hard times, it was not uncommon for desperate Roman citizens to raise money by selling their children into slavery. The united states used to have slavery and slavery was also basic on their race.
