What role did Revolution and liberty play in the democracy of the early Roman republic?
Argument: revolutions and the role of liberty played a vital role in the development of democracy in the early Roman republic.
Revolts between the patricians and plebeians often erupted violently which stirred conflict.
Polybius argues that revolutions ultimately led to the development of a more inclusive political system that granted the plebeians more representation and rights. (9a, 230-235)
