Lessons from Rome: Moral Decay and Corruption

What Our Current Historians Neglect to Tell You

The fall of the Roman Empire is one of the most written about subjects in western civilisation. It has been said that there are more then 220 different theories formulated on why the Roman Empire fell, but throughout the centuries no consensus has emerged about what was or were the leading causes of this terrible downfall.

In the past, contemporary, or later Western historians, spoke about the influences of Moral Decay on this decline, the issue of declining virtue amongst Roman men and leaders. Historians today reject this theory. They will claim semi “scientific” explanations which imply lead poisoning or environmental degradation might be the main cause of this catastrophic event. This is somewhat to be expected. Historians will not dare to deviate from something they cannot prove by archaeology.

Recently I read an interesting quote on the theory of Moral Decay within Rome: “To discuss it is, implicitly, to discuss our own society and its values or lack of them. It can quickly become a political instead of historical question.” While I was not at all surprised by a member of our intellectual elite trivialising the consequences of Moral Decay, it also struck me as a statement that requires a response.

Because learning from and discussing Moral Decay in this context is inherently a political question, and this is a good thing. We should learn from history so we are not doomed to repeat the mistakes of our ancestors. We need to study the depravity, corruption, decadence and lack of virtue of the Roman Empire to ensure we do not fall in the same traps. This article isn’t about analysis of the trace amount of lead left in Roman skeletons. It is about what some conservative historians and contemporary writers knew about what probably caused institutional rot within the Empire.
