Maybe the part where unelected foreign bureaucrats maintain the right to create legislation that every nation in the EU must accept, regardless of the will of the people?

Or the part where the only thing close to allowing people to vote for their say within the EU is a full two jumps away from general election?

Or where over 10 000 of those bureaucrats' identities are not released to the general public?

What I meant is that the UK has the potential to not simply survive, but to thrive outside the EU. I think it's worth taking that chance to ensure that the voices of your people are heard.

Your current next prime minister will be unelected. You have an unelected matriarch.

>Or the part where the only thing close to allowing people to vote for their say within the EU is a full two jumps away from general election?

Ireland had the lisbon treaty changed TWICE because they weren't happy with its original framework. The EU listens over the big issues.

>Or where over 10 000 of those bureaucrats' identities are not released to the general public?

This isn't the WTO. All work done within the EU is totally transparent. Why do you need to know all the names anyways?

Well congratulations, you got fucked over by Farage instead of experts who said otherwise.

Personally? I believe that control of one's own laws and country are a bit more important than economic stability, especially when it's already been shown that you can probably live pretty well without them.
#12 - IrishRovre (07/05/2016) [-]
The UK controls its own laws. What the hell are you talking about?

Also what countries demonstrate efficiency outside the EU and have a similar economic climte to that of the EU?

This guy shouldn't be thumbed down. If you disagree with him it doesn't change the fact that it's the law. Harmful booby-traps are pretty illegal and always difficult to justify in court.

It's like Nero and the burning of Rome. These stories have been embellished over the years to make them more engaging, and due to mistranslations.

With that being said, the things I added for him were based off a few sources, and everything seemed to be the same everywhere I looked. Some of it possibly was more exaggerated than others, but I was just going with what I found.

I'm not saying what you're saying isn't true, but I just wrote what I found and any inconsistency was based on the articles and not me. But either way, I'm keeping this comment stickied because it's interesting and for all I know, it's true.

Thanks so much for writing this, every time someone does a post like this on Caligula or Nero I have to explain just how badly represented these 'facts' are. As much as I love reading Suetonius, basically everything he says needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. And he was writing just under a hundred years later

The streetlights nero made are true right?
#146 - IrishRovre (12/31/2014) [-]
That's an interesting case. Nero originally was very brave when he first came to power. He was mentored by the philosopher Seneca (NOT his mother) who taught him that executions were wrong and so he originally banned corporal punishment however shortly after the great fire happened (Which btw Nero did not watch and dance around, he wasn't in Rome at the time. His playing of music was more of a mournful exercise than an insane one) there needed to be a scapegoat.

You have to realize that at that point, Christians were seen as nothing more than a cult. a treasonous cult which already operated in violation of multiple Roman laws. Romans were already suspicious of any religion other than those the state had approved, and they readily accepted the Christians as a threat to the state. It was more a political move with imagination than anything else.

Watch out guys, he wrote an essay, clearly this weighs heavier than countless documents sourced because he disagrees w/ the source, and the hundreds of documentaries.
Thank God you wrote an essay.

swagmonstah you're great man but you can't be doing that c'mon
#99 - IrishRovre (12/30/2014) [-]
It's not about sources being wrong, its about them being misrepresented. If a young emperor is murdered then the sources have to prove him to be a monster in order to get public opinion to hate him and favour the new leader.

Look at Nero, half the shit he did was exaggerated so when he died people lost their shit but the sources were altered to make him seem like a monster. People were dressing up as him to try and incite a revolution shortly after he had died.

Act like a sarcastic dick all you want but I'm just saying what I studied and what I got a pretty decent mark in. Sorry if you disagree.

As you seem to know quite a bit about him, do you know wether it's true that he had statutes and busts of Greek gods imported from Greece, afterwhich he would have their heads removed and replaced with his own head?
#94 - IrishRovre (12/30/2014) [-]
He did and didn't do it. He did it regarding his Eastern policies but not in his own home or city. He didn't like how Jewish synagogues didn't worship him like they did Augustus or every prior leader(Due to his age of only being 24 most likely) so he ordered that statues of him be placed in Synagogues. This caused rioting and as a result, he had all jewish statues heads cut off and replaced with his own. No idea where the replacing the heads things came from but it wouldn't surprise me, his family was so wholly obsessed with looking pure and godlike that stuff like this wouldn't be uncommon. He had incestruous relations with his sister(Only 1 of them) for the very reason of keeping the bloodline "pure".
