Post comfy things history related. That's it.
I think it must have been comfy as fuck to be an English nobleman or member of the peerage in the 19th Century at the height of Romanticism. That roiling, Gothic aesthetic would only add to the charm and appeal of your huge country house out upon the hills and amid the forests.
Manuscript doodles by bored monks tend to invoke comfiness and humour as well.
What's the Frankfurt School all about?
One day Jewish revolutionaries waked up and realized that the working-class didn't actually wanted a revolution.
The Frankfurt School was about them dealing with that. It ranged from calling them fascists and hoping that if they were embarassed enough about it they would support anything Jews proposed (Adorno), to proposing a new revolutionary coalition between the intellectuals, marginalized groups such as women and blacks, and the lumpenproletariat (Marcuse).
Hey /his/. Are there any good books to read about Roman history, culture, etc.? If so tell me.
What were ninjas like in real life history?
Iirc most of them clothed as commoners and few use the classic pure black ninja suit. The existance of ninjato (the short sword that ninjas use) seems to be non existent. Oh also THEY DONT USE JUTSUS OR RUN AROUND HALF NAKED
Did men create god?
ITT: We draw historical events and others try to guess what they are.
If the Socratic method is so good, why didn't it save him?
Post your favorite dead countries.
Pic related, flag of Katanga, in existence between 1960-1963 during the Congo Crisis.
The Ottoman growth era ended somewhere in the 1600s, but if it hadn't stagnated, where would they have expanded? Did they have any specific territorial ambitions besides vienna?
>but if it hadn't stagnated,
You mean not fucking up at Vienna and Lepanto? The only place they could expand to realistically was Europe. The Russians and Persians were their equals so they didn't bother with them.
They wouldn't/couldn't expand much further. Maybe a little more into Europe and Central Asia.
What they could have done is try reforming their system and become more like West Europe, but then again, Islam was powerful at the time.
Do any of you think that the Black/Afro-American community will have another Harlem Renaissance?
Will black people like pic related resurface?
Or is its current state beyond repair and are we stuck with criminals/rappers?
1. Don't romanticize the Harlem "Renaissance" it was not as great as white historians like the make it
2. The perspective of black people making music/books/films for black people devoid of the White gaze is a beautiful thing. You don't have to get it because its not for you to get; that includes most hip hop.
Do you think there were any Atlantis-like civilizations in the antediluvian world? What about lost technologies?
Doesn't your question kind of answer itself? If there was a Flood intended to kill of prior civilizations, then there were prior civilizations that the Flood was designed to eradicate.
Did they have higher technologies, or were they more in line with genetic manipulation?
You mean the universe that was before our universe in which the archetypes of man and animal were copied into by god?
Or the good ol americanprotestant "the grand canyon is were the flood drained into the earth 3000 years ago!" geniuity?
Is monogamy the right way? How do you deffend it?
Kek, no. There are very few monogamous creates as opposed to not, why would human beings be one (given the fact that for many thousands of years we were not)
Monogamy is a human invention.
Is there any legitimate case for Holocaust denialism? I've never seem a real discussion about this and I can only pray that it can remain as not shit-posty as possible.

Hey /his/, I found this in my grandfather's stuff and I'm curious as to it's origin and meaning. I was hoping you guys can help me out.
Already tried /wsr/ but they had nothing on it.
Also I'm fine if it isn't something big, just curious.
Just an elaborate Christian necklace. It has the Catholic cross and the the chi rho symbol on it, which are just the two first letters of Christ's name in Greek. The A and the omega or alpha and omega are common symbols too. Not sure about the 4 letters at the outside ends of the cross.
It just means your grandpa was a christian and liked showing it through the wearing of jewelry.
