They survive often not due to correctness or applicability, but rather according to traits which enable reproduction.
Consider an ideology that preaches to its followers "be fruitfuil and multiply" versus one that preaches celibacy.
The population of the first ideology will grow faster.
However, the rate will be cancerous, and the ideology will run the risk of self-contamination through misinterpretation. Everyone will fuck like bunnies to the extent that there is no central authority on what's what and the ideology dissolves into schisms.

Because most people do not understand the principles upon which their ideology thrives, but rather only the principles upon which their ideology is based, proponents of ideology are highly susceptible to MAD BAIT and WICKED BUTTHURT and can in fact be confused into hurting their own ideology much like POKEMON.
It thus necessitates that in order to be safe the True Individual™ must inoculate his or herself of any and all ideology, particularly the most dangerous ideology of all: The ideology of the True Individual© who confuses oneself into thinking they are without ideology when in fact they are the most deluded of all.
As this is not possible, the circumstances necessitate physical removal
What was wrong? Who to blame? Is there any hope?
Is it a thing to make this question every Friday?
TL;DR: Fragmentation from having three completely different sources of influence (Ottoman Istanbul, Moscow and Rome/the West) for ~500 years, ~200 years of Ottoman stagnation while occupying them, buying into the Pan-Slavist meme, ~60 years of communism, and corruption.
>What was wrong?
Ottomans and Crusaders.
>Who to blame?
Greece for not paying their denbts.
>Is there any hope?
No. There was a chance 100 years ago, but the eternal anglo didn't like it.
What micronation was most relevant in the history? Why do they still exist?
How much is actually known historically about Rurik, the semi-mythical founder of Russia? I've heard claims that he was a Finn, not a Norseman per say. Is there any truth to this?
How much influence did the varangian culture of him and his decedents affect the development of Russian culture?
Post any and all knowledge about Rurik and varangians in Eastern Europe in general.
How does having an ancient history/culture create solidarity among a country's people? Is it an obstacle to modernization?
Pic related, representative of a controversial era in China's beloved history. [spoiler] Also best drama [/spoiler]
>How does having an ancient history/culture create solidarity among a country's people?
It gives people something they have in common, something which cannot be denied. Something to be proud of, a nationilstic sense of worth.
Countries without culture do not have this, something I struggle with is a sense of ancestry. Born in Australia, but not even Australian.
memes can be created on the spot to encourage "solidarity" (conformism) among gullible plebs
maybe a rich cultural heritage helps a little, but probably not much relatively speaking, particularly if they have had a few decades to create new memes
Stop flooding this place with your chink propaganda threads everyday. Cheng
Everyone from Iran to Pakistan (real Aryans) should be Zoroastrians. It is the true religion of the Aryan race.
Zoroastrianism, especially under Sassanian, is just another sandnigger tier religion. Sassanid inscriptions proudly talk about how such and such priest destroyed the Christian Churches and Pagan temples.
Your romanticism is understandable, being the diaspora you are.
"Real Aryans"... This is not how it works.. Just because they come from the same mountain THOUSANDS of years later does not mean they are aryan. If a dog is born in a stable it's not born a horse.
Wuz the Jews really khazars and shit or is it just an anti-semitic meme?
Wikipedia seems to imply the last Khazars were Muslims before being conquered by the Rus. Is there any truth to this?
Once we die, how exactly does your soul get transferred to another realm. Obviously you're can't be part be of the Material Phenomenon, because you're soul would then be physical and matter cant be created nor destroyed. So the only answer would be dualism, but how exactly does a non-physical affect a physical object, what keeps us attached. Also, HOW IS OUR MEMORIES TRANSFERRED? DOES OUR SOUL HAVE A BACK UP STORAGE BANK OR SOMETHING !?!?
GUYS I'M FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW, AND I'M NOT EVEN RELIGIOUS
Was it Autism?
Thus spoke Zarathustra or Beyond Good and Evil?
You're studying books with unverifiable claims about dubiously 'historic' characters. The history of theology is interesting in some ways but to me it's bunk.
Dude, look at all the different boxes I can put things in! hahaha check out my autism

>never participated any relevant war besides...

If you come here to box a Kangaroo, we will find and we will kill you. It's actually sickening.
Or for that matter, was there any Polynesian-Australian trade?
THis is besides the point when the native inhabitants aren't even trading with each other.
Why do people think Australia is the same as the world? Their peoples were able to live in the same state for 40 fucking thousand years because they were provided with everything they needed to a degree which allowed them to stay stagnant.
Why would people trade when they can walk a couple hundred meters literally right up to a kangaroo and throw a stick at it killing it? Repeat for thousands of years.
>There was nothing to trade,Australia is a desert nation the early ducth explorers even didn't want to settle here because there was nothing of value.no green lands etc
OK then, but that doesn't really explain why there were no attempts to settle the coasts.
Are there no coasts with vegetation nearby or places to plant sweet-potatoes or trees to make fishing boats out of?
Is the postmodern era coming to an end?
What will replace it?
What does /his/ think about the (Great) Serene Republic of Venice?
> Thirty members of the Great Council, chosen by lot, were reduced by lot to nine; the nine chose forty and the forty were reduced by lot to twelve, who chose twenty-five. The twenty-five were reduced by lot to nine and the nine elected forty-five. Then the forty-five were once more reduced by lot to eleven, and the eleven finally chose the forty-one who actually elected the doge.
