I'm looking for a movie or series that is accurate yet is still has pleasing cinematography.
Some historic films just have terrible film-work or production value. Others are just so grossly incorrect is not fair to call them historic
The thin red line. Its not inaccurate but also not focused on conveying the history particularly. Very moving though.
I have offers from the three in pic related.
I also have one from Manchester but I've grown up in the city and am frankly sick and tired of the place.
I know this is daft o'clock but I can always bump this in the afternoon if needs be. Indeed, if there are wide awake foreigners who are familiar with the relative merits of the relative history departments, I'd be happy to hear your opinion.
Was the OT always considered a meme book by early and medieval Christians?
I'm sure you can find medieval monarchs who did this but I meant that they strived the follow the same ideals of monarchy than those three kings also were supposed to follow. These three kings may not be a paragon of decency, but the OT makes it clear when they're right and when they're wrong.
You guys got any examples of multicultural societies in historical times that was successful?
Is it just me, or is the overly critical, hyper historical autistic shtick starting to wear a bit thin?
How accurate is this portrayal of the Maiden of Orleans? What aspects could be changed to make it more historically accurate while still being a good figure? What historical sources should have been taken into consideration by the illustrator when coming up with this design?
Gibbons once wrote, [A]s long as mankind shall continue to bestow more liberal applause on their destroyers than on their benefactors, the thirst of military glory will ever be the vice of the most exalted characters.'
Would you say this is true? Could we use this to trace the fall of the USSR, modern Europe and eventually the US?
All Empires come and go, nothing is eternal American exceptional is american delusion.
That said I think its very dangerous to say that every fall is the same. There is a nice pamphlet, Fate of the Empires by John Glubb, which tries to find commonalities, I don't agree with him, but you should check it out, its a short read.
Is it worth feeling guilt because we perpetuate, in part, the celebration of military prowess over humanistic virtue?
4chan seems largely fixated on war and violence in general -- then again that's pretty ubiquitous when it comes ti humanity.
What was life like for the average citizen of the USSR in the Post-Stalin period? How did they get paid? How did they buy food and clothing? Who made such items, and how did one acquire luxury goods or appliances, cars, furniture? What about student life? University and education? Educate me plz
>What was life like for the average citizen of the USSR in the Post-Stalin period?
Variable, depending on many factors.
In general, the time since the death of Khushchev up to mid 1970s was a period of slowly rising living standards in terms of available consumer goods, housing, healthcare etc. Since mid 1970s and mid 1980s there was a time of so-called stagnation. Living standards reached a plateau and couldn't...

In factories. There were lots of factories manufacturing such consumer goods.
They often did not produce up to their maximum capacity due to shortages of raw materials/supplies or due to organisational flaws. Also the quality often was abysmal. But those were typical ills of socialist economy.
Has it pretty much become the concencus here that Buddhism, Taoism, and Christianity are the three best religions in terms of social advancements, moral principles, and satisfactory answers to existential questions? Is it possible for one to follow all three?
Christianity is the worst religion.

For what I have read fascism does not sound like what media tells me it is. So I want to ask

ITT: Films that trigger you
Come on OP. The movie actually begins as a story told by a story teller, not a historian. The embellishments are rather reasonable if you're not incorrectly assuming you're in for a 70s/80s historical drama with British actors.
ITT we come up with slurs for ancient peoples and stuff.
Romans: Imperial Spear Chuckers
Why has critique of religion gone so far down the toilet today? What happened to the great geniuses like Thomas Paine, Voltaire, and Bertrand Russell?
Is suicide morally wrong?
If you accept that moral is about "what you do" with the resources/power that you have (in benefit of society) as in Kant, then suicide is a "waste" and not morally acceptable. Given that our current moral standard is completely derived from Kant, I say the answer is yes.
