Hey /his/, should I become francophile?
French here : it's okay if you idealize us, forget our actual mediocrity, and then try to emulate that ideal.
Liking france and french culture as a whole and as it is is a proof of bad taste, though.
What does /his/ think about the Nuremberg Trials? Farce or appropriate application of justice?
If they had been run by an actual neutral party in a fair and equitable manner Churchill, Truman, (FDR if he had lived), and a large number of Allied generals would have swung from a gibbet.
What was the life like in Umayyad controlled Spain?
Let me make it clear that this is not a bait post, I am geniunely curious.
It was ok. It wasn't a theocratic hellhole like /pol/ thinks it is nor was it a utopia like idealists and Muslim nationalists like to think.
Basically you'd be ruled by decent-ish Muslims and live as a sort-of second class citizen if you were a Christian/Jew, but you'd have a pretty decent and stable life compared to most religious minorities in medieval europe.
>Christianity destroyed for us the whole harvest of ancient civilization, and later it also destroyed for us the whole harvest of Mohammedan civilization. The wonderful culture of the Moors in Spain, which was fundamentally nearer to us and appealed more to our senses and tastes than that of Rome and Greece, was trampled down ( I do not say by what sort of feet ) Why? Because it had to thank noble and manly instincts for its origin because it said yes to life, even to the rare and refined luxuriousness of Moorish life!
what did he mean by this?
Is he right?

What's a good history of Australia?
Picrelated happens and they tell you that you're being conscripted in to the army.
Luckily, you have so many philosophy books in your house that you can easily pass as a pacifist / conscientious objector.
Do you do it?

I'll start with a classic.

How come the Basque language is a complete isolate? They're not even indoeuropean.
There used to be a lot more pre-indo-european languages in Europe but over time they got wiped out, Basque survived, probably due to location. If not for the revival of the language though it would die out soon too.
And it probably will one day, so it's good that we have it all documented.
Was the Achaemenid Empire the best place to live in the world during its peak?
that's a little difficult to answer.
i think the regions it conquered were certainly better off under its rulership.
the benefits would have been security of a large military.
infrastructure projects like roads and canals.
greater impetus for disparate parts of the empire to adopt standardized weights, measures, currency and language (written and spoken).
cosmopolitanism that lead to more rapid spread of ideas.
insurance against famine because food could be more quickly sourced from other parts of the empire.

they're not the same entity unless they have a shared common part directly linking both
what you are talking about is not a part. They are connected by an indirect common part instead
however as your condition is hypothetical and thereby potentially erroneous, I'd speculate that if such a condition were so there almost certainly would be a shared connection validating them as an entity
Will the Antichrist impersonate Jesus?
What would happen if the British won the Revolutionary war?
-Slavery ends 34 years earlier
-America likely divided into smaller dominions
-Mexican Empire still exists
-Russia has more expansion into North America
-Possible independent Native American states
for Americans though, very little, we'd have the exact same freedoms we got.
I don't see any circumstance in which they would have won.
Eventually they were going to lose the colonies even if they destroyed Washington's army and hanged him as a traitor. Someone else would have led the charge a few years later.
Not really, If the British destroyed the continental army and the Continental congress, there woudl be no leadership for the Americans and more importantly, no one paying soldiers to fight.
Napoleon was 5'6
Mussolini was 5'7"
Putin is 5'6"
Lenin and Stalin were 5'5".
Why are manlets such shit throughout history?
Was the inquisition as barbaric as we think it was? Is the reality of the inquisition blown out of proportion?
Not a /pol/ tier thread, if you come here to deny persecution in general, please fuck off.
Giordano Bruno (1548-1600)
Giordano Bruno was a scientist, mathematician, philosopher, ex-Dominican Monk and an astronomer who, like Galileo, did his best to show that, the earth did in fact revolve around the sun and not vice versa, as the Church had erroneously taught its flocks for centuries. Unlike Galileo, he would not recant and was thus burnt at the stake by the Church in 1600.
Giordano Bruno is often considered to be the first martyr for science and free-thought.
