Most of the native population was poor as fuck loser not just the barbarians.
Roman civilization is gone too, what is your point? Im arguing for effective systems of government not for cultural output.
Ancient european cultural output is thanks the greeks alone rather than the "white" race, since all relevant ancient european art and philosophy is of greek origin. It is just silly for some snownigg to come and pretend that they had anything to do with ancient mediterranean culture, civilization and art.
