What did they mean by this?
Reminder that America has always, ALWAYS hated the Catholic Church.
Reminder that the Catholic Church has exercised supreme patience and peace in not responding to that hatred in kind. The Church could have balkanized America, if they so chose. At the very least they could have unleashed waves of terror on the scale of the IRA in Ireland--and wouldn't they have been justified in doing so? America could have seen acres of blood spilled.
But the Church played nice. It's good to remember that.
/his/ why would you let this happen?
Would the fall of the Soviet Union constitute a collapse of civilization comparable to the Bronze Age Catastrophe, Fall of Rome, and 16th century American pandemics? 1990s Russia seems absolutely hellish, compared to what existed before.
Immediately after the fall of the USSR, poverty rose from 20% to 40%. US department of commerce reports an average 60% drop in real income by 1995. In 1998, the organization Sibling Abuse Survivors discovered 5,000 child prostitutes in the city of St. Petersburg alone. While 1992 suffered over 20,000 murders, nearly 48,000 homicides were...

MATERIALISM HAS NO EXPLANATORY POWER
Is morality objective?
Recommend me books to read about Fascist Italy and / or Mussolini biography. Im kinda poor so I can't afford to buy more than 2 books. Subject interest me a lot and my knowing about it is pretty little.
Lets start an historical music thread I'll start with something ya'll crackas won't know.
More traditional than historical, I first heard polyphonic singing in a historical documentery,
Very strange, harsher than the Bulgarian Women Choir.
ITT history's most overrated generals
Aside from Belize, most of Central America is pretty much identical. My question is, why did it split into a bunch of small jungle states? Wouldn't they have been much better off unified under Grand Nicaragua again?
I know very very little about central america, probably have the least amount of general knowledge about it versus any other region of the world. So I'm ooking forward to this thread picking up
You wake up on 5/9/1945 in Berlin as the girl in the right, now 17. You make some toast for your 2 younger sisters and mom and say a prayer for your brother who has been captured in the east.
The shelling has stopped, but there is a knock on your door. You look inside the peephole and it is a platoon of soviet soldiers.
Can we have a Romanov appreciation thread? This family oversaw the creation of the largest Christian empire in world history and expanded the borders of Christendom all the way to China's doorstep.
>inb4 revolution / tyranny
This thread is only about the 300 years of glory and Christian magnificence of the Romanov reign.
I don't know much but am eager to learn more about the splendor of this imperial dynasty.
I understand it's generally accepted on /his/ that LindyBeige and Skallagrin are shit, so what do you guys think about Indy Neidell and his Great War series?
Are arvanites greeks or albanian?
Let's settle this once and for all, they speak a heavy-version of albanian, some even claim that it's the purest form of albanian.
But some say that arvanites had mixed way before the revolution of 1821.
So who's right and who's wrong, are there any other arguments to be made?
well lets see the hitties were collapsing at the same time, so it couldn't have been an eastward advance, and all of greece was sacked and introduced cultural and linguistic changes which could only be germans or illyrians, but there's no evidence of illyrian tribes being subjugated or sacked
How did Hungary lose against the Ottoman empire ? For many years, Hungary fought the Ottomans, and had some great victories, as well as bad defeats. What lead Hungary to Mohacs ? Was the fall of Hungary inevitable ?
Matthias Corvinus dun goof'd and left no legitimate successor.
This was extremely fucking bad as Hungary actually had the largest number of Nobility per capita (10%!!!) which promptly led to a power struggle.
Which promptly led to a series of very powerful local rulers.
Which promptly led to disgruntled peasants and revolts (Dosza being the most famous)
Which basically left Hungary in no shape to fight the Ottomans, who unluckily for them, is led by Suleiman the Magnificent of all people.
What? Its the fucking historical borders, Hungary looked like this for quite some time. Fuck off you faggot, this is not even revisionism, he asked a question how did Hungary lose in 1526, well fuck, in that time, Hungary looked like this.
Hungary also looked like this between 1867-1920, so read some history you fucking nigger.
After Matthias death who centralized the power onto himself, the Hungarian mobility played house wars again, and the new...

Harold, you have allowed this dark lord to twist your mind, until now, until now you've become the very thing you swore to destroy.
