What would it be like to attend a party in Mozart's time?
Tell me everything you know about pre 1910 Korea.
War plan red was america's plan to invade canada and raid the english empire in the 30's. To be fair, canada and UK were planning to attack US at the same time.
The Golden Circle
A secessionist secret society wanted to take over the whole Gulf / Caribbean region to help perpetuate slavery. I'm not really sure how serious of an idea it was, and it'd be interesting to see how one-drop rule American racial hierarchy would mesh with the castas system
>Saskatchewan was going to become israel before the whole holocaust thing
Until Canada makes the Jews give half of it back in 70 years because of "Muh colonialist occupation! Muh indigenous rights!"
Butthurt over creating a Jewish state wouldn't change a bit, much like butthurt over jews existing at all anywhere hasn't changed. Only solution is to let the Jews kill the uppity natives and get on with our lives.
how does a stateless society (anarchy, comunism, whatever) protects it's citizens from another state that wants to conquer it?
So /his/, which of these two will be the first to establish a cult?
I sense a creepy vibe from both the School of Life and Stefan Molyneux - the School of Life with how it is trying to be a 'secular religion' and Stefan with his DeFOO stuff and compelling charisma.
Present evidence to support your arguments.
To go from making cult classics like Populous, Theme Park and Dungeon Keeper, to being a a suicide cult leader
Come on. It's an anonymous board. No need to make stuff up, nobody is going to judge you here.
Me, I don't really care about the poor 100% of the time. Sure, I get emotional when I see people living in the dirt or a poor kid getting a bike for Christmas, but everyone including hard-capitalist find that emotional.
The real reason I'm anti-capitalist is personal interest. I don't want to work Ina cubicle for 8 hours a day. I'm not lazy (or maybe I am), I think it's unnatural and a waste of human potential. Kant and Nietzsche would go...

Does anyone else notice a grate shift in ideology about to happen? As alt-right becomes more socially acceptable as a reaction to sjw culture, 4chan slowly becomes more left and reddit slowly becomes more right. The braking point will be when Donald Trump wins this years election.
Hegel was right again.
>4chan slowly becomes more left
Kek, this place will never have an alignment. There will always be people on both sides flinging shit at each other for the sole sake of shit flinging.
How much did the average European scholar know about the rest of the world? About Far East and India and Sub-Saharan Africa, and all the rest? How much did the average nobleman? The average peasant? Did the commoners even know what countries there were outside Europe?
>Panvilov’s 28 is a movie devoted to a famous act of bravery by the Soviet soldiers that managed to protect Moscow back in 1941, with most of them paying the ultimate price for this deed. The movie has been created in partnership by the 28 Panfilov’s men studio and Gaijin Entertainment, the video game developer that created the famous MMO - “War Thunder”.
Looks pretty good for some Russian indy studio and a video game company.
> An investigation by Soviet authorities in 1948, since declassified, revealed that the description of the events was exaggerated. Six of the soldiers were still alive, including one who was arrested in 1947 on charges of high treason and confessed to having “voluntarily” surrendered to German troops and later joined a German police force
In March 17, 2016, Russia's State Archive of Socio-Political History removed its director Sergei Mironenko from his post after he exposed Ivan Panfilov and his legend to be “fiction” and railed against Soviet “myths” in front of top officials. Mironenko went on to call the legend of Panfilov to be not even a myth but a deliberate “falsification."
>Ukraine is the true slavic, sole legitimate heir of the Kievan Rus while Russia is the bastard sucessor of the mongol horde
>Ukraine is an artificial state created by Communists and sponsored by the US in more modern times
Which of these is true? Which of these is false?
Are there any areas that were suitatable for a civilization to start but did not? I am talking of the time when the first civilizations arose.
I think alot had to do with environmental suitability (consistency) at or just above 23 degrees north. Any "bad" serious series of events made other places "fail to launch" to any great success.
I think it's not an exhaustive list (farming all over Europe would be various hues of orange and the Indus River Valley isn't lit up, or the Nile) and farming alone, although it's a major contributing factor, doesn't "make" civilization. It's also off topic when the parameter was "the time when the first civilizations arose."
Who was the most disappointing Roman Emperor and why was it this fucking lazy piece of shit?
Surely it is Commodus who is the most disappointing, coming after the revered Aurelius. Here is an emperor who pissed away a legacy by his fantasies of being Heracles born again, fighting gladiators, renaming the country and calendar in his own name - while the empire was being eroded.
The most evil man in history.
Guy invited the Vandals into Africa which is pretty much the most devastating blow the WRE received.
Daily reminder that the book of revelations was written during the intense persecution of the Christian Faith during the tenure of Domitian, the Roman Emperor from 81 - 96 AD and it's purpose was to provide the persecuted Christians with a sense of hope that would encourage them to remain faithful to Christ despite the fact that at any moment they could be put to death for the Faith and thus should not be considered canon.
That fact, that it was a message of faith and hope to the brotherhood in Christ on the mainland, should specifically make it canon. Also, the date is debatable, and makes just as much sense to me were it written later, but I have the idealist view of the text. We know second century people referred to it, so not too much later.
The epithet "Christian" existed by this time in Rome, maybe not all places in the Roman empire.
