Is 4chan the reincarnation of Weimar Germany?
>More communists and fascists than liberals
>Porn and deviant sex is everywhere
>Nobody has a real job
>Lots of Nazis
>Protestants and Catholics can't get along
>everything is fucking horrible
I like the comparison between 4chan and the Holy Roman Empire a lot more. A loose confederation of different states/boards that often despise and fight each other and are only united by name. Reddit would then be France and tumblr would be the ottomans.
People who thought they did the right thing but end up ruined everything.
They have it so rough. Why is ISIS so buttblasted about it?
What is the golden era of Romania? Was it during Vlad Tepes, Stefan cel Mare, Mircea cel Batran, maybe Decebal?
Let's talk about ancient Egypt boys.
>In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth
>And the Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Okay, so what this is telling me is that the Earth had no form, yet it was created. So I can only assume that the universes existence at first was like a blank canvas and God drew in everything else, including heaven. And he decided to do it all after an infinite amount of time prior.
This couldn't have happened.
According to the bible, God is infinite, so he must've had all these morals in his head for quite some time and only then did he decide to create the universe, only to make it so that humans weren't perfect.
If you woke up in your present location in 1913, how would you go about stopping WWI from starting?
I'd just kill Hitler and let the war happen. We learned a valuable lesson from that war and if it didn't happen and technology got to develop even more before the next big war it could've been even more devastating
I'm in Austria, but I'm French and I don't speak German.
I would have a hard time.
But I think the best way would be to kill some of the leading figures of the right wing of the SPD... Or so I would like to think because I resent them, but after checking, it seems that the reichstag would still have voted for the war if the socialists had voted against.
Then I don't know. I guess I would hide in Switzerland and let it happen. And I would try to kill Stalin before he can wreck the Russian revolution.
That's more important than WWI anyway.
>I and the Father are one.
>Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him,
>Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
>The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
>Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

What are the best books on the ancient world?
They must be written in a way that doesn't make me want to claw my eyes out (i.e. not academic text books).
Books on areas other than Ancient Rome/Greece particularly welcome (anyone have any good books on Ancient Asia?).
Let's find out what the real religion of /his/ is.
>the only truly successful Crusades were those directed against the Cathars and the Bogomils
Truly, the best example of the failures that the Crusades were: able to concentrate effort into killing fellow Euros, but unable to hold on the Levant for long enough to leave so much as a significant cultural footprint
>Religion is the opium of the masses
what did he mean by this?
How did the soviet union manage to have such high birth rates for so long while having women working and free abortion?
And why do post-soviet states have so low birthrates?
Was Caligula truly crazy or was it just a meme, like the meme of Nero burning Rome or the meme of Cesare Borgia being evil and not being a hero?
In many cases, every Emperor had an interest in depicting his immediate predecessor in a bad light.
Caligula was no doubt bad, but not as bad as history makes him out to be. If I recall correctly, he was accused of draining the treasury - yet when Claudius took over he somehow had funds for many great building projects... So we know that's not entirely accurate.
Agreed anon. I think s fair amount of our history of Rome is tinted by people writing slam pieces or propaganda.
Nero wasn't as bad as people think, but he was still bad. Caligula is probably still among the worst, but probably not as insane as people think
If you look at Caligula in the context of Roman political culture (the element that people ignore or are completely ignorant of), then alot of his acts can be seen as the best possible move he could have made at the time. If you want to armchair general him with the privilege of 2000 years of hindsight and impose a 21 century morality on hum then yes, he comes off as insane
