Why did nobody intervene?
The only people with the power to intervene (the West) were/are a cowardly bunch of hypocrites slaved to the will of the barely educated masses who hardly care about events inside their borders, let alone on another continent.
Are tastes subjective?
Not quite, in some ways it is very much so but in some it's very much objective instead. Take for an example Yogurt and sour Milk. If you would eat only yogurt for a month or so you would find Sour Milk to be sour and the opposite if you dinned on sour milk for a month and then ate yogurt.
The same for certain body parts. In some cultures and ages big tits are good and in some others they aren't, stuff changes.
Still, there are many objective markers, such as symmetric bodies and facial ratios resembling...

Are there any good books about Stalin's life that aren't biased as hell, either in positive or negative way?
I find him to be a fascinating person to be honest.
Most unbiased sources, like diaries of Anatoly Chernayev who read some classified info on him, generally show him as a very shallow and petty person with love for raunchy jokes.
Ironically enough, Chernayev himself looks like a very shallow and petty person with love for raunchy jokes in his diaries.
4chan often speaks of specific things being patrician or not, like a certain book or philosopher.
ITT: let's discuss how the Patrician Man LIVES in large. What is the patrician lifestyle?
recognizing flaws and working against them before they consume you
realizing that hedonism is good, but not everything, life is short and the worth of trying to achieve great things
embracing reality and learning how the world really works, then taking calculated risks and making an impact on it
By ANY chance,
someone has got a nice short quote from Seraphim of Sarov ?
I really need it for a work ...
Hope someone can help,
What's up /his/
can you guys hit me up with your best Seven Years War books? Something pretty general that covers as much of the whole picture as possible, so I can decide which direction to go in next
Fred Anderson "Crucible of War" is the best on the new world conflict.
Robert Asprey "Frederick the great" good bio with plenty on the Prussian side.
There are a lot of academic studies on the French Army during the war, etc.
"Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class --->hated for their abominations, called Christians<---"
What did he mean by this?
Why did the church favour the ideas of Augustine and condemn the ideas of Pelagius? Specifically Pelagius' idea that admission into heaven may be granted to all those who use their freedom of will virtuously, contrasted with Augustine's doctrine that God grants His divine grace to those who he pleases to choose, regardless of how virtuous and devotional they are. Because, surely, the church would wish for people to be under the impression that living a virtuous and devotional life will allow them admission into heaven, as it provides an incentive to lead a good life, so to speak.
Not strictly /his/ I know but if all these famous historical figures were black and Europe was predominantly black then what happened?
Where did the white people come from? How did they drive the black people into Africa? Why is there no evidence of any of this?
How come the Southern US never had a successful slave revolt like Haiti?
>nationalism didn't exist until the 1800s
Nationalism means a political movement which strive for national sovereignty. Before the French Revolution, the sovereign was a king and the idea of the political nation had not been fully developed in the modern sense.
Some people take this to mean that ethnic identity, patriotism, group loyalty and even nations themselves are modern concepts but this is bullshit.
How was Qin Shi Huang viewed throughout Chinese history up until modern times?
I know that he was ruthless, and I also understand that the Han tried to vilify him as much as they could, and it was during their reign that the highly acclaimed "Ten Crimes of Qin" was published. But was there a time when people viewed him a national hero? Or was he detested all the way through?
during the han dynasty he was vilified, because of his repression of confucianism and disregard of traditions (he wasnt Xia, filith steppenigger). They also ended up enemies of Legalism, the ideology they overthrew. He want to make it into the pantheon of the 5 emperors but failed.
I have a feeling that much of the hate on the Qin was down on one thing: his serious curtailment of the feudal nobility that led to their eventual demise in Imperial China.
We have no idea what the plebs thought of him, but keep in mind this cunt opened government offices to them via meritocracy and fucking abolished slavery.
I bet the Communists shitsmeared his memory too in modern china, hence allowing the meme EVIL KING memes to continue.
>I bet the Communists shitsmeared his memory too in modern china, hence allowing the meme EVIL KING memes to continue.
Why would they care. They even rehabilitated Cao Cao (tho mostly because people kept comparing Mao to him), why would they continue with the dynastic shitflinging that plagued the last 3000 years of chinese historical studies?
I was wondering if I could get your help on something...
I bought this picture today at the local thrift store and i was wondering what Battle/Siege this was from?
