I am discussing history on video game forum. My avatar is a skull chewing bunny. Of course I'm insane.

Did you actually read the link? Patriarchy is the keystone concept of Roman law. The Pater rules his family and pater rules the state. The emperor is the father of all Romans.

The Romans were awful, they messed with everyone. Lawful evil state wink They fact that the destroyed lots of other people does exactly nothing to negate the truths that: a) the battle with Boudica was about patriarchy and b) that the Romans imposed patriarchal law across Europe. We, in west, are the inheritors of a patriarchal history.
