Ancient Rome: Anthem and symbolic musical perceptions




National Anthem of Roman Empire (Instrumental)

National Anthems of the World

(The Roman Empire didn't have official national flag and anthem)

In spite of the purported lack of musical originality on the part of the Romans, they did enjoy music greatly and used it for many activities.







Imperium Romanum (509 a.c - 1453)

Aerilmellon

Fictitious flag and fictitious anthem (Roll Tide by Hans Zimmer)

In Latin, "Imperium Romanum" means "Roman power."






Gladiator Soundtrack: "The Might of Rome"

A. M. Goudarzi

Gladiator (Latin pronunciation: [glaːdiatọɾ]) is a 2000 historical epic film directed by Ridley Scott, starring Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Ralf Möller, Oliver Reed, Djimon Hounsou, Derek Jacobi, John Shrapnel and Richard Harris. Crowe portrays the loyal Roman General Maximus Decimus Meridius, who is betrayed when the Emperor's ambitious son, Commodus, murders his father and seizes the throne. Reduced to slavery, Maximus rises through the ranks of the gladiatorial arena to avenge the murder of his family and his Emperor.

Released in the United States on May 5, 2000, Gladiator was a box office success, receiving positive reviews, and was credited with briefly reviving the historical epic. The film was nominated for and won multiple awards, particularly five Academy Awards in the 73rd Academy Awards including Best Picture. Although there have been talks of both a prequel and sequel, as of 2012, no production has begun.

Gladiator is the original soundtrack of the 2000 film of the same name. The original score and songs were composed by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard and was released in 2000, entitled Gladiator: Music From the Motion Picture. The Lyndhurst Orchestra performing the score was conducted by Gavin Greenaway.

The album won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and was also nominated for the Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Score ("Anthony Asquith Award for Film Music").

The Oscar-nominated score was composed by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard, and conducted by Gavin Greenaway. Lisa Gerrard's vocals are similar to her own work on The Insider score.

Is there a such thing as anti-Italian/Greek/Slavic/etc bigotry in America or the world today?




I would argue YES. It has become ever increasingly difficult to ignore the fact that "we" (Southeastern European Americans?) don't fit into the plans of the new ruling class coalition. They don't even want "us" as front people for them! The Obama administration actually had numerous people working for them with clear ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. I guess they may as well..... they sure don't want us around!! When they want more "diversity," we're not part of that plan either! The simple truth is that they, even in the larger coalition, do not like us as a general rule. They hate our culture.

I would take this one step further. Many on "the right" refer to the politically correct status quo university professors as "Marxist Professors." Actually, they're Globalist professors. Every few weeks, one of these mostly Anglo male professors makes some grand announcement of his disdain for "the white race," "Western Civilization," "Christianity," etc. Where did Western Civilization come from anyway? Greece and Rome! Also, aren't "we" dragged down with no place to go within this hostile environment? I mean... how are "we" supposed to respond? We're NOT expected to respond! We're nothing to them!

Almost down to the last one of these so-called Marxist professors, judges, politicians, etc..... they espouse their belief in Globalization; not a nickname, but a distinct politic. In other words, they believe in Global, borderless rootless, predatory, anti-labor, monopoly capitalism. I would argue that these people are not "Marxist" at all, but the rise of a new far right class. These days they're very angry because the Wall Street endless war machine didn't get their hand-picked candidate into the presidency. We're reminded of that fact every day as a mere six corporations--which make up over 90% of the mainstream media (25,000 different pieces of media), making up the Council on Foreign Relations--are packed solid with financial and manufacturing war profiteering interests!

"The only difference between the Republican and Democratic parties is the velocities with which their knees hit the floor when corporations knock on their door. That's the only difference." -- Ralph Nader

They want things to go their way every time, even to the point where they stick trained stooges into positions of power whom they will then project as individuals who cannot be criticized. The modern leadership of both parties are both part and parcel of this far right Globalist endeavor. Just because they hate Christianity or Western Civilization doesn't make them "on the left." This is a new brand of far right, monopoly capitalist, anti-labor politic. Trump has led a civil war of sorts; the paleo-right vs. the Globalist right.

These are people whom I call "the anti-labor left." They're the people who, for example, made the arrangements which traded away the labor movement for the gay movement. The corporate supremacists at the very top have eliminated entire societies for financial gain in the third world with one hand.. and use the other hand to slander people with the word "Racist." A gigantic horde of mixed race people are swarming all over Europe and committing mass MASS rape, including old ladies, pregnant women, little girls, and even literally infants... is that "racist" too?

Donald Trump is an undisciplined egomaniac who has at least pretended to be anti-Globalist. At least, for example, on his second day in office he met with American labor union representatives--who had never even seen the inside of the White House--and afterward he threw out the far right Corporatist-Globalist and extreme anti-labor Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The Globalists hate him so much to the point of hysteria! For example, they're pretending to be up in arms over the "travel ban"; however these media monopolies had been proponents of what I call the "medicine ban" against Iraq, in which a million Iraqis (mostly children) died as a result. That murderous "ban" was okay.

Another example, Trump's infantile but secretly recorded comment about how he likes to grope women. Hillary Clinton was recorded laughing because her then client--accused of sodomy rape against a 12-year old girl--was exonerated after he passed a lie-detector test... despite the fact that she stated that she knew that he was guilty. ............ Bernie Sanders wrote an essay once about how he believes that every woman privately fantasizes about being raped by three men at the same time. It seems to me that the latter two comments were much worse offenses... don't you think?

These types of slanted examples are too many to list. Trump signs an executive order to have an oil pipeline through an Indian reservation... big news! Obama signs an execute order handing over millions acres of Navajo sacred lands over to the mining companies.... even worse, but not newsworthy. The Navajos are fighting, but CNN is not covering. I don't believe in any executive orders, eminent domain laws, or infringement on reservation territory; however, this is not honest news reporting. What about all of the war mongering by Obama and Hillary Clinton? What about their actions in Libya?

I suppose one thing that could be said of Gaddafi is that he had constructed one of the greatest socialist projects in history; a massive water infrastructure bringing free water to his people from deep underneath the Sahara desert. If Obama and Hillary are who they claim to be, why did they bomb and destroy that? It goes on and on; Trump was calling for gay marriage when Obama and Hillary were against it. They're further to the right than he is I think! They were nothing but shills for the international corporations and the Wall Street war machine.

Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in 2014, which clearly stipulates that the government/military has authorization to abduct any American citizen for any or no reason, detain them for any length of time without legal representation, and without informing anyone of their status. They're also authorized with the power to torture and/or murder them.. all outside of the judicial system... and without ever being compelled to inform anyone of this. Now really... what if Trump had signed NDAA?

Trump is just a deflection; a way of consummating the fact that the protestors are no longer anti-war or anti-Globalization. A good example of this is the actor Martin Sheen--an outspoken anti-war activist until the start of 2009--who then declared that anyone who dares criticize President Obama is a "racist"... and dropped his anti-war activism during Obama's eight year warmongering reign. It's an open secret that the war profiteers paid off Hollywood to not only produce pro-war propaganda films, but to institute an unwritten gag order to the charmed circle of Hollywood against any criticism of all of these wars for profit... under penalty of what has been referred to as "economic discipline."

Digressing back to the original point. The extreme and normalized anti-white politic on university campuses, in which a heterosexual white Christian male is pronounced as the ultimate expression of evil, is deceptive. While the vast majority of these professors espouse this concept, they also espouse that supernational economic and financial entities controlled by white males should be given free reign to plunder, pollute, and control the entire globe! The leadership and/or ownership of all of these Globalist entities, cooperatives, and think tanks are not of any one particular background; however, the basic flavor is clearly of three main financial root sources: The Vatican, the British Royal Family, and the Rothschild/Goldman Sachs interests.

A few weeks ago Justin Gest, Assistant Professor of Public Policy at George Mason University's Schar School of Policy and Government, made the following quote about the "white working class." You know... people like us. Now think, is this really the angry anti-Trump left; or is it really a far right wing, anti-labor, anti-small business, socio-economic and anti-white ethnic bigot? I would argue that it's the later. We have no friend in either of these two parties; they're just two arms of the same Globalist monster that hates us. Every few weeks, one of these trained apes comes out with a comment such as this.

"The only way of addressing their plight is a form of political hospice care,” Gest said. “These are communities that are on the paths to death. And the question is: How can we make that as comfortable as possible?"

This isn't a joke. This is, in large part, an open ethnic and cultural discrimination--against the descendants of immigrants from Slavic countries, Greece, Italy, Rumania, Hungary, etc... whom they can openly attack without actually naming us. This comment was actually one of the tamer ones; most are more vicious. I mean, what do they expect us to do? Well for starters, they probably don't figure that we have any rights at all. One hundred years ago those of this pathology at least called us out by name.

The overwhelming majority of those in authority who hate us are either "Anglo" or Jewish; while other like-minded individuals of other races in some form of authority are usually put up to it and seldom dislike us in particular.. at least in America. All you have to do is look around; we're not truly part of the new America. The mainstream projects mostly negativity against us and our culture. How often do you see anyone in an important post with an Italian, Greek, Polish, or Hungarian name? Very few. Only in the military perhaps. Their "diversity" doesn't even include us either. These Globalists are trying to destroy our ancestral countries as well. Wake up.. this new ruling class hates us!

“Abolish the White Race – By Any Means Necessary. The key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the White race. So long as the White race exists, all movements against racism are doomed to fail. Treason to Whiteness is loyalty to humanity.”

"We’ll keep bashing the dead White males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as the White race is destroyed. Not deconstructed, but destroyed.”

“The goal of abolishing the White race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed White supremacists.”We’ll keep bashing the dead White males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as the White race is destroyed.

"How easily any sense of humanity of civilization slips away from their face, leaving only the beast. This beast has many faces and names. Sometimes they are called Germans, Poles, Croatians, Ukrainians… While at other times they became the Church, the Red Cross, or Prime Ministers, Kings, Fuhrer. These are people of ultimate evil as the beast stays just below the surface, ready to savage.. The planet would be well rid of the European predator. Perhaps we will be fortunate to live in such interesting times (an old Chinese curse), to see the decline and disappearance of the graveyard called Europe."

-- Emmanuel Winston, Gamla News

"The Greek people are anarchic and difficult to tame. For this reason we must strike deep into their cultural roots: Perhaps then we can force them to conform. I mean, of course, to strike at their language, their religion, their cultural and historical reserves, so that we can neutralize their ability to develop, to distinguish themselves, or to prevail; thereby removing them as an obstacle to our strategically vital plans in the Balkans, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East."

-- Henry Kissenger, Oikonomikos Tachydromos Magazine (Aug. l997), Kissinger while addressing a group of Washington, D.C. businessmen in Sept.1974



These same Globalist interests, always looking to prey on a people's weakness, created "Feminism." Feminism is not feminine, but an attempt to adopt masculine traits for women. I remember growing up, those strong Italian or Croatian women who would just look at you when you did something stupid. They usually didn't even have to say anything, and we knew what they meant. They were extremely powerful figures of class and morality. Why aren't those "traditional" women put up as an example of something to be aspired to? It's the biggest joke in the world.. those mostly Anglo and Jewish Feminists hate us and our culture.. PERIOD, END OF STORY!! It should be said that they preyed on our weaknesses... but they did it in order to destroy us. It would be interesting to see someone prey on their many weaknesses for a change.

These rabbit holes go very deep. Over 60 million Russians and Ukrainians were mass murdered between 1919 and 1940! The greatest killing spree in the history of the world. Who was responsible? It's goes on and on. 95% of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade occurred between African Chieftains, Jewish-owned shipping companies, and buyers in the Spanish and Portuguese colonies of the New World. Soo.. that's supposed to somehow be our fault?

Whatever happened to the good ole days when, even if you had some sort've issue with your family, if someone attacked your family... all bets were off!? I'm tired of bowing down to these people.. they hate us! Even if you thought that changes were/are needed... would you want your sworn enemy to make those decisions for you? Lastly, to our enemies... NAME US BY NAME from now on! We need to come out've denial about some of these things. I remember growing up in San Francisco amidst old world Italians, Slavs, etc., along with people who believed that every person on the face of the earth was the product of a rape. They hated us then, and they hate us even more now. I don't give a damn about Trump.. but how about taking our own side for a change?

Opening battle scence from 'Gladiator' - A devastating fighting force




Gladiator- Opening Scene.avi

Michael M


*************************


I think this scene gives some glimpse of how effective the Roman army could be. There was the equivalent of howitzers and air strikes. Also, when we think of both thrusting and hacking swords, arrows, oil-fire bomb projectiles, and those big arrows that are fired from a cranked up mechanism... I mean, I'd rather just take a bullet! Lastly, the sheer bravery of all ancient warriors to engage in this type of wicked combat.
