Thanks Marty for the link to the article. Absolutely amazing how it all worked and the manpower it took to operate the baths. Massive undertaking. Read and noted.

With all the impressive displays, small wonder Rome managed to keep the ancients in a tight grip. To rebell against such power would have been unthinkable...where would you even start? Small wonder Jesus did not tell slaves to rebel, there would have been mass slaughter. He knew some day Rome would fall as unbelievable as it would have sounded in those days.
Dictators only last their lifetime. Perhaps to be replaced by a worse one, or, eventually in a positive light, the oppressed get their freedom.
