An unmet need

Postby Quintus Aurelius Vulscus » Sun Aug 13, 2017 4:42 pm

I mentioned this to my gens and should like to put it forth to you the citizens of rome.

There needs to be a new position within the Res Publica that of Roman-Klingon relations.

What say you?

I see no need for this. They are a separate community with whom we have no mutual interest, and there is no need for us to have dedicated relations with them.

I beg to differ. Quite a few that are interested in Roman culture as well as Roman culture. While both the Empire and the Res Publica don't necessarily share the same view usually the folks who are apart of said groups do.

It would be a good way to promote both cultures

I must concur with Florius, I don't personally see the benefits of beginning relations with Klingons, what would we gain from this? Shouldn't we be trying to reconcile ourselves with some of the other religio groups out there? We could possibly benefit more from say attempting to start relations with those of Rodnovery or the Hellenic Pagan groups?

Aye, well put.

Out reach to any group on a private basis is an option for any individual. But our organizational priorities as a whole are elsewhere IMHO.

Although I am much more of a Vulcan than a Klingon, I would point out that this idea is not entirely without merit, given that a fair number of classicists are Trekkies. Klingon warrior culture might be a good match for the military groups as Klingons stress personal honor, a quality all too neglected these days. Reaching out to other interested parties is not a bad thing…

BTW, when did Klingon, an ethnic term, become a religion?

Indeed, it does seem that the Romulans were based on the Romans…and not always for the best of reasons.

Did I mention that a fair number of classicists are Trekkies? ;-) Seneca has just proven that point…and he and I don't seem to be the only ones around here!
