4th Century Christians wrote "ROMA" on walls in Rome to protest rampant avarice and corruption.
In case you don't realize it, ROMA = ROME in Italian. So, what makes ROMA mean anything other than Rome? Se me parece que alguien se come el coco. Tiene demaciado tiempo por divertidos.
No I'm not eating coconuts! I am fully aware ROMA is Italian for Rome. So were the Roman Christians in the 4th Century. R.O.M.A. (LATIN: Radix Omnium Malorum Avartia) was their protest - a subtle one - that wouldn't get them in trouble with the authorities.This is very similar to the way the women in Chile used to protest the Chilean Dictator Pinochet, by dancing with the photographs of their dead husbands and sons.Sometimes oppression is so severe that the human soul finds the most creative outlets for protest and self expression - often in ways that no law can jail them.
