Smile Cicero and Politics question


Hey!!!
So I'm fresh from doing a mock question on this statement and was curious as to all yours opinions on the statement and thought it might make a good topic of conversation-

During the period of 62 to 50BC Cicero became increasinly irrelevant to the governing of Rome and the provinces

This sounds a lot like a topic for a paper in a history class.

Look at the dates of the first Triumvirate with Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus. He was invited to be a fourth member, but declined.

Then look at the dates of his exile, which was related to the Cattiline conspiracy and a little dabbling in state execution.

See when he was appointed consul, what he did during that time ... then watch the rise of the triumvirate, then see how his enemy Pulcher chased him out.

This might be a violation of the rule against providing assistance to students with their assignments and homework. Before members jump in with their opinions and knowledge of Cicero and his period in history, you need to demonstrate that you have already done significant work on the topic.

All you need to do to rectify the situation is to post for Historum your work on the topic submitted to your teacher and class. Assuming you are a high school student, many here may be interested in what a high school History class on the topic might be.

Birdsinspace sounds like a student ... maybe? I was just guessing. It was the wording "mock question" ... and "increasingly irrelevant" sounded like a test question. Just a guess.

What if Birdsinspace is just a person with a question? I was afraid I might be insulting someone and added the smiley/frowney to lighten my guess.

Sorry if I violated the rule. I must have missed that when I signed up. If it sounds fishy next time, I just won't post. I tried to "point" rather than "answer" ... next time, hands off.
