Re: [XTalk] A map of Roman "invasiveness"
One should also evaluate how the suppression by a foreign
dicatatorial regime is perceived by the population of a small
freedom loving nation. It strikes me, having lived in Canada
and the USA that their citizens find it more difficult to assess
their feelings and experiences than say Lithanians or
Hungarians. A mere percentage point of how bad the repression
was at a certain period of Roman occupation tends to be
misleading as it doesn't assess the perception of the Judean
people of that period and thus lacks the required objectivity.
