Roman Culture VS U.S. Culture
Citizenship, Law, and Justice
We see this in the Declaration of Independence where it states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Punishments for crimes were based on how serious the crime is. In rome if you commit patricide, you will be punished by being drowned in a river. In the United States, we have an lethal injection.The United States also gives out fines like the Romans.
