He cited Homer in greek on the smoking ruins and he was given the name 
Africanus to honor him.

But the romans usually avoided genocide. They where out to conquer 
peoples to make them pay taxes.

There are many other candidates though, from the Saxons of the 4th 
century to the Mongol storm of the 12th to the Nazis here in Germany in 
the beginning of the 20ths century.
All *before* mind-crushing popmusic with "subliminal messages" emerged 
to drive everyone "mad with sex and violence".

NO! Rock/pop music with all its wildness, its unpredictability and its 
absence of formal written rules is a cultural sign for more humanity, 
more freedom and more self-awareness.
