How Well Do You Know Your Ancient History?

persepolis-1548875_1920Which ancient world empire cared more for its citizens, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia or Rome? This empire was known for protecting the religious freedoms of its people.  There were laws to protect persons suffering from physical and mental injury.  This world power guarantees that business transactions are impartial for both the rich and the poor. They were laws against cruelty to animals and the way the land was cultivated. The family was also protected from any unfair treatment from other members, for instance there were laws defending women’s rights and the fair treatment of their children in the case of inheritance after a divorce. Medical practices were monitored by the government, insuring good health. The military valued soldier’s rights and women could and did serve as generals in this empire’s army and navy. To assure control and respect for these laws lawyers and judges were appointed for all of its citizens.

This empire was so proud of their treatment to its peoples that one of their main religious motto was, “Good thoughts, good words and good deeds.”

Does this sound like the country where you live today? Once this nation succumbed to the next more powerful empire, it took thousands of years before these basic human rights became available to the general population for most of our modern world.

So, do you know which ancient world empire cared more for its citizens, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia or Rome? Thomas Faraday would find out first hand when he traveled back in time to this mighty world power. He would also find out that despite the people’s pursuit of “Good thoughts, good words and good deeds,” corruption and evil still loomed between the rocks.

The answer will come next week, or if you must know now, read more here.
