Real political power lay with the Military and the approval of the Church. These types of palace coups rarely worked out well. Empress Theophano was exiled shortly after the events of December 11th (the Patriarch of Constantinople refused to crown John Tzimiskes as Emperor if he didn't banish the Scarlet Empress), and as for the eunuch Basil Lekapenos, Emperor Basil II (ruled: 976 AD - 1025 AD) had him deposed and blinded in 980. He was the first of the powerful Oligarchs - or Dynatoi to fall to Basil's purges. He wouldn't be the last.

While this does all sound like great novel material, purges and palace coups leading to exiles and blindings and such are not usually a sign of a particularly effective or desirable political system lol

Political intrigue and power-plays are normal parts of History. What is RussiaGate and the Mueller Debacle in the United States, but a series of intrigues between the Republicans and Democrats? Only the naive believe that political stability and control can be eternal. Changes of Dynasty and Leadership are just a normal part of the ebb and flow of Civilizations. That's universal, regardless of what political ideology or system a given State functions under.

On the third, and semi-unrelated to those two hands, I'd believe your statements of respect were more genuine if you referred to me as I prefer being referred to on here.


To what are you referring to?


I mean, how many times has it been that you've referred to me as Tor (a fucking browsing system) since I came out as trans, or Torrocca when literally next to nobody ever uses full nation names on this site?

That's what I'm talking about. I don't think these statements of respect are genuine because of that. But whatever.

Gotta agree here. I generally think the worst of neonazis, but shortening a nickname in the wrong way when the nickname doesn't seem to have some sort of sinister double meaning seems remarkably... minor.

As far as I know, no one's been stabbed to death, blinded, or exiled over it.

Yeah, but changes of dynasty and leadership don't have to involve killing/maiming/banishing your predecessors lmfao

Yeah but that's the Ancient and Medieval World where that sort of thing was commonplace. We don't punish political losers in the same manner anymore.

It's not really a concern, I'm merely bringing up the fact that it's a preference of mine and it's been that way for a long while now, and the fact that it's kinda just ignored by OEP makes me question his statements regarding respect about me.

It was necessary for the preservation of the Res Publica.
They did manage to assist in assassinating (or forcing suicide on) a few emperors.

Outside of periods of civil war, which were rare at the height of the Pax Romana? Not particularly.
Also, don't you shill for Augustus?

No. I shill for Tiberius.

Vespasian passed power peacefully to Titus, Titus to Domitian. Domitian was killed for trying to become a tyrant, but all his supporters were left unharmed and allowed to continue to participate in politics. Nerva passed power peacefully to Trajan, Trajan passed power peacefully to Hadrian, Hadrian to Antoninus Pius, Antoninus Pius to Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus, Aurelius to Commodus.

There are many levels of respect. He's just operating perhaps one level lower than you'd prefer.
