Politics and Evolution in Ancient Rome

It has come to my attention that people are concerned with my recent foray into the evolution of politics. They believe that maybe my mind is wandering a little too far from the topic at hand. Nothing could be further from the truth.

For in times of great political evolutionary pressures, there are also biological evolutionary pressures that come to bear in times like these, when these kind of things are kind of happening. The precedents are startling, to say the least.

For instance, in the year 32BC in Ancient Rome when Caeser seized Imperial power and the Roman Republic ceased to exist, was also the very same time when the monkeys of the world evolved their screeching shouts and yelps in the trees. Since then, monkeys gained an evolutionary advantage over the sloths that don't screech and shout. Thus the great variety of monkey species to this very day! and the great paucity of sloth species.

Also, within 5 years of the accension of Caesar in Rome, the dinosaurs were finally and for all time extinct.
