I like the message although the Roman Empire was most unjust and corrupt. I'd have rather preferred life amongst the free germanic tribes in the woods.
Ha - that would be a great analogy too. I posted another thread about how we need to look for sources of public domain graphics, and that's really not limited to Greco-Roman. Any context is going to come with lots of preconceived notions buried in it, but it would be a mistake i think to back up to the point of refraining from any representations at all. Epicurean philosophy is about nothing if it isn't about reality -- I think the interesting point is just that there's no single "best" social structure that everyone has to look toward. The key points transcend any limited cultural implementation.
PS that image is supposed to be Pericles in Athens.
