If there's a lesson to be learned from the Roman Empire in regards to dangers as it relates to America today, imho it would be the dangers of attempting to intigrate multiple significantly entrenched seperate cultures under one governmental umbrella rather than attempting to establish a baseline cultural link throughout all of the various peoples who are under the paritcular government. When you don't have that common cultural link then you create significant challenges in terms of government and cohesion of a country.
Well, there's that, and of course monitoring the minreal content of your drinking water and food.
