What is the ego? What is egoism?
Isn't Stirner's concept of the "spook" a spook in and of itself?
What did he mean by this?
>I would like you to lay down the arms you have as being useless for saving you or humanity. You will invite Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini to take what they want of the countries you call your possessions... If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes, you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourselves, man, woman, and child, to be slaughtered

What's the most JUST culture or ethnic group that's still around?
I vote Assyrians. They went from dominating the entire Middle East to being just another powerless indigenous minority in that region.
As an Assyrian, it's hard to believe that there are less of us in Iraq now then after the genocide during WW1. It just goes to show how fucked up Iraq really is, my dad who has worked towards in the ADM ever since Sadaam, which of course was illegal, has basically given up on independence for us staying there are far too many Kurds and far too few Assyrians to defend themselves from ISIS. A YPG member actually murdered a military leader for a small independent Assyrians militia and no one cared because the last...

Assume that your ancestors used to be monarchs. Do you have any right to feel proud about it ? Or you feel ashamed for being such a worthless creature despite your origin ?
fuck off /pol/ and no you shouldn't be proud about stuff other people did just because they looked like you or were born inside the same borders as you. You have only the right to feel proud about what you made yourself
So what are most historian's verdict on Paul?
Was he really an apostle or was he actually just a guy who dreamed about Yeshua once and claimed himself a saint?
How does this happen? Surely there must have been one power hungry tribe out there who wanted bigger borders?
Who do you discuss with /his/?
>Only one friend who is really good for reasoned debate
>Often discuss environmentalism, economics, religion and history
>Very fast at understanding ideas and finding issues/resolutions of said ideas
>Tolerates me bringing radical philosophies to the table for discussion, and engages the ideas in good will
>Extremely devout Lutheran, and voted conservative in the last election despite having a very liberal group of friends (I spoiled my vote)
>NEVER talks about banalities or gossip
>an academically successful physics major that got a job at a prestigious college that I have severe inferiority issues with
>an alcoholic history major that I was friends with from middle school that claims to be a giant scumbag but actually isn't
What went right?
How do people seriously think that the bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were unjustified, and that a mainland invasion or letting the Japanese starve to death was a better way of ending the war?
because there are documents showing that Japan was ready to surrender 2 months before the bombs were dropped, with the sole condition that the emperor and the royal family be left unharmed and be allowed to retain their royal status. America wouldn't accept these terms and wanted total, unconditional surrender. Dropped the bombs. Then whaddya know, they granted Japan's sole condition re: the imperial family.
America dropped the bombs as a show of force, not as a necessity.
While I agree with your stance, your information is incorrect. Japan wasn't ready to surrender, and although the notion was discussed it wouldn't have happened if not for the atomic bombs or strong pressure from its allies. (Why the fuck do you think it didn't immediately capitulate after Hiroshima).
How the fuck is dropping atomic bombs, which influences areas for generations afterwards, ever permissible.
The English language lacks a good equivalent to the German word "bildung".
Has this affected Anglos?
Seeing how Anglo countries have run the world for quite some time: is this why the world is shit, due to the Anglo culture and values having spread globally?
Is Bildung talked about in your country (post your country)?
But Anglos are master race. No other Germanic peoples has risen to such power, and Hitler should've been thankful, to be frank.
What's worth living for if you can't believe in God?
Finding your own meaning, is the most heard answer. "Go after your interests."
How is this not the same as admitting the only thing that makes life worth living is what gives you pleasure? So there we go: Hedonism it is.
What made this nation so historically successful?
>Caesar avoids the Ides of March and is saved from assassination
>goes through with his campaign to conquer Parthia
>return trip through the black sea, he conquers Dacia and Germania as well, also as planned
>wake up and realize you don't live in this world
>Remember your far off brethren destroyed Rome
>Remember your ancestors pillaged and burned through Europe
>Remember how your cousins started two world wars and wrecked India
>Remember a bit on how everyone just decided to wreck the Balts and how they all had it comming
even if he avoids the Ides of March he would have been assassinated later, its not like if Caesar didn't show up in the forum they would have just put their knives away and gave up, they were all committed to killing him and would have just plotted another assassination.
Besides it was Augustus that consolidated the power and laid the framework to allow Rome to swell up to the size that it did.
Why did the Norse abandon their settlements in North America?
First time I've heard people say that the Civil War wasn't about slavery on here , is that the truth? Have my history teachers been lying to me all these years? was slavery just part of it or the main reason?
