comment Is there any documented criticism of the brutality of the Colosseum from citizens at the time?
I agree and part of my motivation for the question was my curiosity about the variety of opinion on cruel capital punishment.

comment How did the United States avoid (or recover from) post revolution corruption?
This seems overly simplistic. At the time of the U.S. revolution it seems like the U.S. was very rich in natural resources and had a reasonably well developed political infrastructure that could have fallen victim to corruption. Do you have examples of other states that support these factors as being relevant?

@HermannIngjaldsson I guess that is what I am trying to get at with my question. Is there a set of conditions present in more modern recently independent states that makes them more vulnerable to institutional corruption that was not present in the early U.S. In other words was the U.S. unique or just lucky?
