I believe you are both.
When concerning the acts of corruption by the Western Catholic church people will typically use the phrase "The Church" to demean organized Christianity as a whole. I've been increasingly more interested in Orthodoxy and I was hoping I could find some knowledge of how the church known by many westerners compares to the Orthodox. For instance, was the prohibition on publicly owned Bibles up unto the Protestant revolution unique to the Catholics?
Nah, it was these guys; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khoikhoi
The Cape has a more Mediterranean than tropical environment where the tropical crops used by the Bantu wouldn't grow, which is why they never colonized the area and why it was the only part of Africa where Europeans permanently settled in large numbers.
Is this a meme weapon?
I like collecting photos of street scenes throughout history so if anyone has any good photos to contribute along with mine that'd be nice
Was Burke right, about revolution that fought for abstractions like rights and that try to hunt tradition always end up with Tyranies and bloodbaths?
It hasn't been the case in the past century. Revolutions based on abstractions,always ended up alienating a huge chunk of the population,and causing bloodbaths,and deriving in some sort of Tyranny after the revolution happened. Change can be gradual btw,this way it creats a tradition,which had a more stable foundation.

¬What are some good documentaries?
When I think that the world is going to shit, is that just how everyone feels in all time periods, 100 years ago, did they think the world was going to shit, and a century or generation before that? Is this time any different then those other times where it turned out that the world did not actually go to shit?

Wasn't there a contingent of Russian soldiers on the Western Front that had to vote on whether or not to keep fighting after Russia itself had already collapsed?
Can anyone tell me that story?

Why is Hannibal Barca held in such higher regard than pic related?
Dispite his decisive victorys he failed to devise a conquering stratagem.
Who do you think is the greater general /his/? Discuss.
As to why Scipio isn't as famous as Hannibal, I can think of two reasons.
1) Everybody loves the tragic brilliant general. For all of Hannibal's victories, he lost in the end
2) The Romans perhaps purposefully overblew just how brilliant the guy was, to make having defeated him glorify Rome all the more
If Scipio had faced Hannibal in Italy human history would have been written very differently. Scipio was just a roman cuck too afraid to face him. Hannibal did the unthinkable
