Why did the Japs JUST themselves? Who thought this looked good? Was it all just a joke that went too far?
Not as bad as the Chinese.
>tfw the Qing dynasty depopulated entire cities and brutally killed people all over the country just because they didn't change their haircut
Why didn't they just make peace since the war turned into a stalemate? Did they were happy with the horrible slaughter that they unleashed?
Tell me about this guy.
Now that the dust has settled, can we all agree that he wasn't that bad of a leader?
He was a nutjob, one of your standard megalomaniac African 'big men' quasi-military leaders.
He had rivals (or perceived rivals) murdered, frequent rumours of feeding chopped up body parts to animals. He was nationalistic, forced out the nation's middle-class (Indians) en masse, and picked a fight with Jews for no real reason.
As far as even African dictators are concerned, no he was still pretty bad.
>Posting anything but his full, majestic title
His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular, would be most disappointed.
I have to do a work for my university, and we choose for a subject "Partiality in the historic treatment of Napoleon I". As french guys, we are from one of the country thinking that he was a great man. We wanted to compare other land's opinion about him.
So everyone, what does the historicians of your country think about what he did?
Nappy was definitely a hero. Initial Republic was cancer, and Nappy brought France to greatness they never had before.
Shame he lost, as the winners decided to remove everything created by him, including Polish state he formed.
Why did the term "mongoloid" become an insult of low intelligence in western europe, especially when the Mongols outsmarted whites numerous times and were actually more tolerant and progressive in some some ways, not to mention china being an as advanced?
How did ancient Greek communities transition from the dark ages to the Archaic 8th century renaissance? Was it diffusionism from oriental nations? Prosperity from within?
There was a huge shift in culture, and politics in the 8th century which I'd imagine would be a Greek renaissance if you consider how bad the Dark ages were. Ancient Greek culture began in the Archaic time, and overall Greek culture can be argued began way back with the Mycenaeans considering they were the first to speak Greek.
Vikings went to plunder England all the time, but not only for the silver. They brought back good looking girls so they had sex-slaves, cooks, hairdressers, beard groomers, and babysitters.
This is why England don't have too many sexy girls today, and scandinavia is flooded by them. We straight out stole all the hotties a 1000 years ago, leaving the crooked toothed uglies behind.
Sweden has such beautiful and healthy women because it practiced soft eugenics from the 1920s to 1979.
Was it autism?
if you where to be fucked by any historic leader who would you be
>Octavian Caesar, his dick was so good that Caesar gave him Rome when he died

How does /his/ learn languages? Share your tips.
By being an infant surrounded by other humans who speak the same language(s) as each other.
In all seriousness, there is no one quick and easy way to do it, despite what software and book advertisers will have you think. It is especially the case because each language family is so different from each other, there are varying degrees of familiarity with one's native language, and the fact many languages do not use the Roman alphabet. You'll just have to test various methods and see what works best for you and the language you're learning.
a serious commitment to whatever language you want to learn, and by this i mean DO NOT rely solely on duolingo or assorted apps. you need to put in like an hour, minimum, per day if you are starting from scratch
try to avoid teaching it yourself, get a native speaker to assist you. you might be able to get by with reading and writing it but that won't help you with pronunciation, context, and speech in general.
it will not be easy, but it will be worth it.

How did women entering the workforce in a big way during and after the 1970s affect the economy and Western society and culture?
Man can afford to solo provide for family
Pays good enough on shitty jobs to work
Slave wage, you get to survive on double wage.
My family income is around 150 grand and we barely scrape by in our city.
women for put into the work force so the government could get even more money in revenue taxes and everyone with any sort of experience knows that they are, for the most part, shitty at any sort of advanced job and are only good at menial work like secretaries, and even then they do nothing but engage in catty and gossipy behavior.
There are of course exceptions to this though. But all of this was promoted under the guise of liberal value showboating...

Marxism lost any credibility it once had 40+ years ago, so why are retards still for it?
how many people are actually for marxism? or actualy communism aside from 'well wouldn't that be nice if we could all get along...'
most marxist academics i've known and read papers by wouldn't call themselves communist or marxist in a political sense and often only use it as a term to say 'here i'm going to analyse this thing looking mainly at class structures and maybe a sprinkling of marx's dialectic will show through'

Was he really the average family-man he is often depicted as in media, or a racist humanist monster who wished for the genocide of anyone who wasn't an Anglo and the destruction of the church?
