17. The "fight" is increasing the temperature
and the "fight" involves more than just the actual fighting.

In all those scenarios you mentioned there were other human events happening in nature, religion, and science that shaped man's view of the world around him.

The Romans had all the technology necessary to build rail roads, industrial production, electricity, etc.

They just never had the need for such things, simply put, because Human Life had no intrinsic value. Subjecting another man or woman to slavery, torture, rape, etc meant nothing to a Roman. It wasn't till they messed with some poor Jewish Carpenter in some far away province, that social attitudes changed and people began to think what they were doing to other people.
