Caesar's writings are propaganda. He wrote them with the intention of getting at the Roman Senate and making himself look good to the Roman public.

The dude was a genius, he could do so many things, but his perspective on Gaul and the Celts was definitely an Imperialist one.
But that's Roman's for you - nothing could beat that refined city of civilisation, except possibly the Greeks, but they touched each other's bottoms and were quite open about it, that's one thing the Romans could not countenance.

Unless they were on holiday in Greece, of course. Bloody toga lifters.

Croc - thanks for the gaulish correction hehehe!

it could be argued that the culture of the invading english was far far more violent, in fact i think anyone making that argument would probably succeed.
especially if they were documenting the violence of the english against anyone who wasnt english, in all the history ive read ive never come across more reference to brutality and sadistic terrorising of the various native peoples unfortunate enough to fall under the wheels of brittannias chariot.

I don't know, it could be argued both ways probably using different criteria for what constitutes worse violence. In the context of the argument of cultural violence you could probably argue there was a culture of violence with Maori but not the English, since they were building an empire rather than just looking for war.

i think, with this post as the main piece of evidence, it could be successfully argued that you dont know what the fuck youre talking about.

to be honest that does seem like a pretty retarded post theres too many different arguments at once. Too simplify, Maleficent's asterix post was retarded cos it was objecting to a fair point which was typically biased. Secondly because the analogy was flawed in that the original point was about pre-European Maori, unless I missed an in joke or something.

no difference between tribal warfare which from many accounts had little in the way of purpose and violence for the sake of Imperialism within the context of a debate about violence as a cultural trait?

Between those? No I think impeccable adequately describes both

well i think mel was pointing out that the culture of our 'white' ancestors was actually pretty similar to the our maori, ive often noticed similarities between the culture of the ancient gaels and the bretons and that of the pre-european maori myself, so it was a point well made, a lot of the violence we might attribute to the maori was a result of them being attacked in the first place, just like how the irish and the scots are known for their warlike qualities.

That may well be well very well so - but the an invading force on any front will be violent. For the majority of law abiding english citizens, living in London perhaps, I dare say the culture was particulary violent at all. And I think anyone making that argument would be correct.
