I have two questions /his/.
1. Would the Pan-Arabist movement have survived the 20th century if the Arabic coalition won the Yom Kippur war?
2. Would it have been able to stop the rise of Islamism as the dominant ideology in the Middle East if it did survive?
Go back to your Swedish DLC simulators, please.
Islam stopped being united even before the Qur'an was written down, and Al-Wahhab invented the idea of acknowledging the insufficiently orthodox Muslims as infidels punishable by death.
There is no Ummah, only war.
Would USA still get involved into WW2 if Japanese didn't attack Pearl Harbor but still went on to invade South East Asia colonies of other Western Powers?
seriously, why did japan attack?
who would think attacking a nation several times your size, population, and that has access to a personal supply of war making materials with a history of stepping on smaller nations and the whole "mastering the Americas" thing?
Was Hayek a spook?
like all good bootlickers and boss' man, he hated watching prolos win the class struggle in any degree.
His theory is also based on priori pseudoscience ( the best thing I've heard from praxer is how if you try to prove them wrong, you're proving them right because you "intend" to prove them wrong) and value theory posited exclusively from the standpoint of exchange.
Can you "prove" philosophical positions or statements? For example, if I'm a mathematical platonist, is there a chance I'm "wrong"? Are there any philosophical positions that are obsolete and "proven wrong"?
Of course not. What I'm asking is is it even theoretically possible to prove a philosophical position beyond a reasonable doubt? Like, it's something I'm actually interested in. Is everything really relative?
I'd say that it's impossible to be wrong about something that you can logically prove, unless it can also be demonstrated to be false.
Mathematical platonists are right, unless you can find some way to prove that numbers can't not-exist.
Anyone know from what movie/tv series is this video taken?
Looks comfy as fuck.
According to CK2 the Varangians were fags who spent all of their free time smashing greek boipussci

What is the best Italian State and why is it Modena-Ferrara?
How come religion was a driving force for artistry and human expression for most of history, propelling artists to make great works, but these days seem to absolutely wreck everything it touches?
Is it an american phenomena, with christianity deeply tied to deeply un-expressive, repressed demographics? Is it a greater focus on conversion and exploitation rather than individuals expressing their faith? Even in recent history you could compare works like Passion of The Christ to Ben-Hur. Or (probably a bit unfairly) God's Not Dead.
What a bunch of crap. The vast vast majority of what the arts community appreciate and generally huge labors of art are not religious anymore, and it's not just a social climate trend, people are simply not driven to create these things as much anymore. And I mentioned Ben-Hur because it's relatively recent and was a massive project with strong marketing, compared to a modern massive project with strong marketing
it's not an outlier either, there are many modern religious works that are very weak, and...

Did they ever actually see combat?
What are the best books spanning the entirety of human history or large parts of it?
I want to go through a book like that and then choose a particular period or point of interest to look at in more depth in a separate book.
Who was the edgiest philosopher?
Some people might nominate Otto Weininger, but honestly I merely consider him a gender realist. My vote probably goes to the phrophet Muhammad.

LET THE DISCUSSIONS COMMENC
No, but seriously, this has got to be the most fucked up little girl that I've read about in a while. And she's ridiculously interesting from an academic perspective.
Supposedly she's in a home for the mentally retarded. That must be an awesome life, going through all that crap for thirteen years only to discover that you'll be spending the rest of your life in the company if literal mental retardation.
Are there any history or humanities teachers on /his/? If so, do you ever feel like being 4chan could be some kind of danger to your career or otherwise respectable image?
Where should I start with Heidegger?
