Can someone tell me who this is a tattoo of? Maybe it's just a generic philosopher/emperor type...
"A village, a small village was provisionally erected, with temporary structures, and in it approximately 20,000 Jews were put. By means of this newly invented weapon of destruction, these 20,000 people were eradicated almost instantaneously, and in such a way that there was no trace left of them; the explosive used developing temperatures of from four to five hundred degrees Centigrade."

Oh, fine, just this once.
Is this meme good or is it just a meme?
tl;dr : it's worth the read, no matter how much people will tell you it's not.
Diamond presents an essential piece of the puzzle on what makes civilizations survive, but, as his harshest academic critics would say, he oversimplifies it to 2-3 reasons or causes.
but overall he it not /wrong/ per se, it's just a sweeping generalization on the basic foundations of societies and peoples.
[spoiler]He did nothing wrong[/spoiler]
Ironically that's what he did wrong, that he did nothing.
Hadn't he pussyfooted around the nobles he maybe could have been able to push through the reforms necessary to hinder the revolution.
Can you folks give me some sources for the study of Roman History. I am not looking now for major books on specific periods and happenings, but a larger and broader view of the whole. For example, I know that Gibbons work is quite detailed, but I do not want to study only the decline and fall in so much detail now – I want to know first a beginning-to-end full-cycle of Roman history, and only after that I pretend to specialize more.
So, what can you recommend on:

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I can't think off the top of my head of any books that are about the complete history if Rome from its founding to its decline.. too much history there to provide a detailed account. Read Livy's Early History of Rome and all of his books for that matter. That's a good starting point.
So Phoenicians were Dravidians right? Yeah.
What are the times in 20th century's media and art history that large resources were devoted to something really intelligent and thus not normie?
Something that was brilliant but did not involve any crowed pleasers to make it more palatable..
Hadron collider was pretty anti-normie.
The downside of democracies is that a large quantity of resources goes to low IQ plebs. We will probably never go back to the moon due increasing non-white population = dead weight.
Where did most pilots in WWI come from? Could you just sign up for it when joining the military?
Today, all pilots of military aircraft are officers. That means they graduated college or went through a military academy (college+bootcamp for officers). I imagine the same must have applied for WW1.
So I imagine only well educated individuals from a most likely wealthy background were capable of being pilots. The military probably advertised it as a program for anyone interested.
Well done Jews, very well done. HOWEVER
"Don't misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose.
MFW Herzl was the true messiah.
How do you parry with a Axe?
Best US History book? I read pic related 4 years ago in high school and am looking to read a good comprehensive history of the US this summer. I'd ask /lit/ but they'd be less interested in accuracy

Why cant we replace the divirce 50% moneysplit law with a law that forces you to live 2 years together after filing the divorce, or 18 years together if you have a kid.
Itd be more romantic and less sleezy
Yeah for Women, the systen is sexist against men
If the goal of communism is the dissolution of the state, then why is communism always administered through a state entity?
I mean are we supposed to believe this is some kind of magic state where corruption and bureaucracy don't exist? Boy, I hope someone got sen to the gulag for that blunder
The idea is that eventually the state gets phased out after the vanguard overcomes the material conditions that prevent the workers from owning the means of production.
In general anarchism requires the creation of a new culture with people abiding by rules enforced by the community. Rousseau genuinely believes people can not only overcome human selfishness, but can do so on a large scale.
>I mean are we supposed to believe this is some kind of magic state where corruption and bureaucracy don't exist?
Yes. Communism is fucking retarded. It causes the problems it accuses free market capitalism of having.
Found these pins with some other stuff after going through my grandma's house, have no idea what they are and would like some more information on them. Thanks
