So who was he?
Sebastian. He was taken away from Earth to serve the mighty Vorlon Empire in certain.... delicate matters.
What can /his/ tell me about Portugal? Any experts in Portuguese history here?

Was the French Revolution (and other revolutions of the era) and the Napoleonic Wars the spiritual predecessor to Marxist revolutions? Is the struggle of classes a cycle that will one day erupt again?
>They both bore it as though in deliberate flagellant exaltation of physical misery transmogrified into the spirits' travail of the two young men during that time fifty years ago, or forty-eight rather, then forty-seven and then forty-six, since it was '64 and then '65 and the starved and ragged remnant of an army having retreated across Alabama and Georgia and into Carolina, swept onward not by a victorious army behind it but rather by a mounting tide of the names of lost battles from either side Chickamauga and Franklin, Vicksburg and...

Do you remember the tank man being run over or not?
some stupid bullshit from /x/.
Basically they say that They remember something different from what most people remember.
Like "i remember as a kid it was Berenstein Bears but every time i see it now it's Berenstain Bears. It's bullshit like everything on /x/
I was wondering if anyone could tell me about this;
This is my great grandfather's it seems he was part of some protestant order in Newfoundland Canada, this was before Newfoundland was a Canadian province though.
I'll post a couple pics to make it easier to read. It says he was part of a royal black knighthood or something, not entirely sure what it's about. Any information will help.
Were there any Christian counties that executed for apostasy /his/?
Currently debating a Muslim apologist who is trying to excuse the current apostasy laws in Muslim countries. I've googled but all I get is Christians being executed in Muslim countries
Has any political organization ever in all of human history been as depraved as ISIS? Was any ancient army or modern totalitarian state so complete remorseless that they'd have little kids murdering people for spectacle?
I'm legit wondering if humanity has reached an all-time-low.
Content warning. Watch at your own discretion. It's an ISIS propaganda video with little kids individually executing a dozen or so captives. Near-Hollywood level production values and camerawork.
Cite an example that's comparable to this video.
Obviously lots of movements have killed vastly more people, but something that completely inverts morality like this? And celebrates the fact?
I want to be a history teacher /his/. How shitty should I expect my life to be if I continue down this career path?
This meme is getting a little old. I want to be productive to some degree, even if it's just fulfilling personal goals

Could he and his pals have stood a chance?
Wilhelm did nothing wrong
His Indian campaign was a blunder, correct?
He should have turned west for Carthage and Rome, then onto Iberia and Gaul
Centralized civilization connecting Persia and Europe, centralize power and focus on politics until old age(why did he die so young ;_;)
Do you think if Holocaust never happened (fuck off /pol/) Hitler would be remember as yet another conqueror instead of a monster? In fact I think if he just worked people to death and shoot them like Stalin did and didn't say anything about master race and subhumans he could get away with it Stalin did kill a lot of jews he just wasn't openly antisemitic and guess what? A lot of people completly forgot about it.
Even without the holocaust the Nazis were still a scourge. They brought war to Europe, unlike Stalin. They killed people based on race (yes, not just the Jews), unlike Stalin (admittably, the the mass deportations had ethnic motivations and some say Stalin killed based on class, which is quite horrible as well).
So in short, the Nazi Emprie would be remembered like the Chinese remember Japan. Not just another conqueror.
