Are the methods of Hegelian dialectics majorly prevalent in the current waters of global politics? Are there any blatant examples of it which you know of?
>iran = perisa
>iraq = babylonia
>syria = assyria
jordan = ?????????????
also, why didnt they keeo their old names?
the endonym for Iran IS Iran. Stemming from the word Aryan (not the nazi bullshit Aryan, true Aryans as in a specific tribe of Proto-Indo Europeans). Persia comes from what the Greeks called them, land of the Persians (or Parsa as they would have been called then). You should learn history before posting on /his/, newfriend.
My professor showed me these pictures today that he said proves Australians created civilization. What does /his/ think?
Why were the colonial powers so shit at creating nice, stable borders along ethno-cultural-linguistic, economical and religious lines EDITION.
>yfw multi-ethnic states in 2016
Who /nationalist-decolonization/ here?
>tfw exploding Brits cry about "muh terrorism".
In most places creating neat little nation states is impossible, as ethnic boundaries are not clear lines. There's usually a border zone where villages of two or more different ethnicities/cultures can be found. There'd always be people on the 'wrong' side of the line.
That said, there's plenty of nations with a plurality of ethnic/cultural groups who haven't failed - borders aren't nearly as much of a determining factor in stability as you might think.
Can someone tell me what are the club designs next to morningstar? And holy shit all of them look painful I would be more scared of them than swords.
According to Perkins, he began writing Confessions of an Economic Hit Man in the 1980s, but "threats or bribes always convinced [him] to stop."
He also passed it off as truth for years before he revealed it to be fiction.
So fuck your shitty book and fuck your entire, parasitic hippy existance, you miserable, motherless fuck.
He never claimed it was all fake, the book is semi-autobiographical, of course things were played up for dramatic tension and such.
Honestly his claims are pretty on the money for what actually did historically happen.
Idealists, say something nice about Materialism.
Materialists, say something nice about Idealism.
Idealism is true in the sense that we do only interact with mental objects in the sense that "I" thr ego is contained within the whole of the mind and informed by perceptions,which is nontrivial and interesting. But materialism simply has the causitive and explanatory power that idealism lacksh
Materialism is a good way to understand concrete principles of how the world works, but it lacks the idealism that needs to be present in a human being in order for them to be happy i.e. Being an idealist tickles youre brain in a certain way that it was meant to be tickled, on a very primal instinctual level
Taking my first 500-level philosophy course this semester (Topics in Socio-Political Philosophy), what should I expect?
Why do the Vulgate and the Septuagint have "your breasts are better than wine" in Song of Songs 1:2, while Hebrew manuscripts and modern translations have "your love is better than wine"?
"It's over Luigi, I have the high ground!"
"Don't try it!"
What was the greatest cavalry force in history and why was it the Polish winged hussars?
What other historical cavalry units were particularly skilled, successful or effective?
Is Islam responsible for "Islamic terrorism" or are those terrorists just people with political grievances that happen to be Muslim?
>Note to mods, this thread is on-topic. It is about religion, and "Islamic terrorism" on western soil has been occurring since at least a century ago, to say nothing of on non-western soil.
i don't think catholic priests are a good example since pedophilia is probably a natural inclination
but anyway, what your saying is that a bunch of murderers who gunned down some cartoonists that made fun of their beliefs weren't motivated by religion and that their actions are comparable to the actions of professional soldiers in a time of war
i'm not convinced
M8 look at Buddhists in Sri Lanka and Burma
Look at Hindus killing people they suspect of having beef in their fridge
Look at the various Marxist terror groups
Look at what Mexican drug cartels do to innocents just to show the govt to leave them alone - hint Mexicans are almost all Catholics
When the Jews bombed the King David hotel that was religious
Tamil Tiger suicide bombers weren't doing it for Islam

Just what the fuck would've happened if England won the War of the Roses?
You mean the 100 years war.
Well England would have ceased to Exist as France would have become the primary title, then at some point in the future France would probably lose a war in which the peace stipulations required the establishment of some random English pretender to a restored independent England. So ultimately it would probably just wind up with England being less powerful.
Just finished reading pic related and he makes passing mention of the Marine's fear of merging with the Army;
>Our training picked up in intensity, and rumors began to fly regarding the next “blitz” (a term commonly used for a campaign). We heard that the 1st Marine Division was to be put into an army to invade the China coast or Formosa (Taiwan). Many of my buddies feared that we would lose our identity as Marines and that the Marine Corps would finally be absorbed into the U.S. Army (a fate that has caused anxiety to U.S. Marines of many...

One is trained as a main bulk ground force, the other as a rapid deploying amphibious expeiditionary force under the department of the Navy.
The President can deploy Marines anywhere in the world without congressional approval, just as he can fleets.
>One is trained as a main bulk ground force, the other as a rapid deploying amphibious expeiditionary force under the department of the Navy.
The problem is that modern USAF protocol makes them literally redundant. And in addition, every war since '45 (with the exception of both Iraq wars) have either been supplementary wars (Korea) or anti-guerilla warfare (every war since Korea) which renders the Marines relatively useless.
