The thing is though, is that Trump did cross the Rubicon.

Historically speaking, Julius Caesar was one of the greatest military minds to ever be born. He began his career as a foot soldier and ended it as the Emperor.

When he crossed the Rubicon river, he actually marched past Rome in pursuit of Pompey, which was completely unexpected on part of the Senate which had harangued him for treason.

It actually took several years between the crossing of the Rubicon and when Caesar finally arrived in Rome, as he pursued Pompey all the way to Egypt, and was briefly distracted by an affair with Cleopatra.

All in all, this was the greatest head feint in all of human history, as Caesar temporarily allowed Rome to exist in near total anarchy without a government while he conclusively decided the civil war with Pompey.

The parallel with Trump and our modern times is nothing short of symphonic. We are seeing an almost perfect overture between the orchestra of history which played out in Rome, and the melody as it expresses itself again in our modern world.

After all, America is the spiritual and symbolic manifestation of Rome within the modern world. It's easy to see that had Trump initiated civil war, our entire society would have transitioned into an Imperial state, just as happened before. This time we may see something entirely new form instead: a worldwide Republic.

I appreciate your accurate history take. Alot.

My "Cross the Rubicon" reference was to the popular culture understanding of that phrase. This understanding drove the pre J6 glowie memes urging Trump to trigger scenario #4 and justified post J20 glowie fuelled "Trumps a pUsSy" rage posts when he didnt take their violence bait.

Again, thanks. I really enjoyed reading what you took the time to compose and share. You reminded me to thank God thatTrump has an OG elite private military academy education and is a life long military history obsessive.
