How bad were the gulags, and why aren't they talked about as much as the nazi death camps?
You know what was worse than Nazi internment camps? Japanese camps on the Chinese mainland. No records were kept and the treatment was less humane than the way Nazis treated Jews. Tens of millions died.
I have no clue why no one ever talks about it. Lost to history.
The majority of post-war intellectuals in England and France (and most of the world, really) were vehemently left-leaning if not entirely communist in their mentality. Therefore, critiquing the USSR would've been counterproductive to their efforts. Mentioning the gulags would've also created a parralel to the Nazi death camps and therefore eroded any public sympathy due to the fact that the disgust for the German atrocities was at its freshest.
>I have no clue why no one ever talks about it. Lost to history.
Because it doesn't concern us, western europe talks about jews getting killed, eastern europe talks about slavs getting killed, china talks about chinks getting killed.
I've recently become very interested in world history and the rise and fall of cultures/nations. Now in the middle of pic related, since it seemed like a good start for essential reading.
Any recommended other interesting book suggestions?
I've always felt that these kind of discussions always mention 'meme books'
Cuz whenever I see such a topic it are often the same books over and over again
Maybe some books are really good, but why bother reading them if everyone does? What possible novel insight can I get?
Not that it actually stops me from reading meme books...
And yeah this sounds like intellectual hipstery
Post games that got into history. Hard mode: no Paradox games

How we interracial relationships regarded in Egypt, Rome, and Greece?
They're back at it again. How long til it's a full-blown mass suicide cult?

When does group philosophy cross-over to becoming a cult?
Don't forget to buy your outfit before going so you can be a real philosopher/cult member
