itt: People who literally did nothing wrong
Other than creating one of the most violent and repressive states of all time and the Soviet Secret police and killing millions of people?
He was personally worse than Stalin, but in circumstances that didn't allow him to do as much.

Syria-Palestine and Egypt were mostly Christian until 12th century though, i.e. 500 years after the conquest.
What was the most powerful fighting force relative to it's time period?
pic related, i think they'd be pretty high on the list
Enlighten me about Anarcho-Feminism friends. In a classless society where the merits of the individual are key would women not have a severe disadvantage due to their physical inferiority? Let's say it blunty, what prevents men from overpowering women when they feel like it with little repercussions because they don't have the strenght to fight back.
To me it seems like women have more benefits living in a law state than an anarchist one. Atleast here their rights are protected by society and the law.
>what prevents men from overpowering women
A culture which shuns unnecessary violence, of course.
And don't expect women (or anyone who's in any way marginalized by the status quo) to be defended by the law; it's fairly obvious that laws have been selectively enforced for as long as there have been laws.
Anarchism isn't lawless chaos.
It's a responsibility for people to look out for each other, which includes protecting from rapists and such. And since in the absence of prisons or anything of the sort every crime would probably be met with the death penalty or other such street justice.
To give an example, if you rape someone then her friends and male relatives would probably murder you and this would be received as justified by the community thus protecting them from revenge killings.
ITT historical figures who you'd love to have as a friend
Why did they prefer it thick in the past?
Were they all high test knights trained from infancy to lift heavy pieces of metal and swing them around?
Why future doesn't exist but past does?

> Now, surviving for 40 years of constant warfare in the 15th century is a big enough deal by itself, but this guy went above and beyond – his biographer credits him with personally killing 3,000 men on the battlefield during his career.

Shut up. Functioning communism would be awesome. How could we MAKE it work?
The last mammoth probably died around the time the Code of Hammurabi was written.
It really makes you think.
They lived on Wrangel Island. Just Inuits.
saw this was your striker in the babbys and had the greatest laugh. makes me very sad I kinda forgot about this board after it was introduced, all the threads here are pretty great, I feel like I've missed so much that was just so raw.
give me your juiciest /his/ memes pls
dumping my stuff
We hear a lot about German women being raped by Soviets in WW2...
But what about all those little Nordic boys taken prisoner by hot-blooded American soldiers and Russian freedom fighters, so far from their sweethearts with no other sexual outlet?
Would an Allied soldier be punished for having sex with a German prisoner? Did captured Nazi boys ever prostitute themselves for better treatment?
I hate to meme but it's literally the Jews' fault that homosexuality is uncool
If the Greeks and Romans were allowed to determine Western morality, fucking cute twinks would be a perfectly respectable pastime
Sup /his/? Let's have a thread about the history - and extent of human self awareness.
Considering how humans are inherently selfish, yet we agree to work together towards common goals, it would be good to be more self aware. So what is "self" and how would you define it?
"I" and "me" and "you" are all concepts which represent our ego.
Ego is our center of conscious awareness.
Basically this means that "I" is an idea which represents our ego. What you define as "me" ("yourself "in...

99.99999% of humans are not self aware. They simply act on impulse. Even the people we rate as highly intelligent.
That said... Human nature is not magical. It can simply be broken down into predefined states. The human mind is made up of atoms (and are formed into chemicals) which obey the laws of physics etc.
Thereby we are defined by the universe. Anthromorphic principle and all that.
"Beginning" is essentially just point of view. Therein lies the sense to that paradox, I think.
What we think and believe to be our "self" is just baaarely the tip of the iceberg! After-all, we can only be aware of - and know so much at any given time. We can't be aware of ourselves as the whole universe because the nature of our awareness doesn't allow it. But that's why I brought up atoms for the sake of perspective!...

Puyi dindu nuffin wrong, what is the consensus on this guy?
>be the up and coming emperor of the Qing dynasty
>some bitch named Sun Yatsen dethrones you and forms a republic

>The Japanese let you be the emperor you never were in Manchukuo
Where did it all go so wrong?
He had no choice. There was either trusting the corrupt fucks who kicked you out and would treat you like a puppet anyway or trusting the not-so-corrupt-looking ones who offer you a chance to fulfill your destiny.
Its time for a comfy risk thread. Unlike /pol/, /his/ is a board that is actually capable of intelligent historical discussions. I'd like to make a /risk/ game to commemorate that. Don't let me down /his/
