Civilizing or Enslaving?

ROMAN IMPERIALISM, P. 224, The Roman historian Tacitus ((ca. 56 – ca. 117) describing a governor's policy in Britain:
“Further, he educated the sons of the leading men in the liberal arts. . . .Thus even our style of dress came into favor and the toga was everywhere to be seen. Gradually, too, they went astray into the allurements of evil ways, colonnades and warm baths and elegant banquets. The Britons who had no experience of this, called it 'civilization,' humanitas, although it was a part of their enslavement.”
