qWhen ancient Rome dominated the known world in the beginning of the first century, the Roman military established outposts on the borders of its territories to serve as guardians of the empire. Soldiers stationed at the Roman forts on the fringe of the empire would often marry local women in the villages around their post. Sometimes they would be recruited by their new families, the barbarian enemies of Rome, to serve the barbarian tribes own interests. Early first century monks from suppressed secret religious societies and pagan priests would also try to recruit the Roman soldiers to join their religious orders. The activities of these ancient Roman outposts were not dissimilar to the military listening stations and surveillance outposts established on the outer most borders of Western civilization that surrounded the Soviet Union in the middle of the 20th century.q T.H.
