which ancient center of human civilization would you like to live in, /his/?
if possible tell us why/what appeals to you the most in your choice?
Why do idiots like Nick Land and Ted Kaczynski not talk about all the good things technology has brought us?
It is necessary to inform people that technological progress, convenience, and the ability for more people to live are not objectively good things but rather things we have decided are good because they make our lives "easier".
It's like candy. Candy is bright, colorful, tastes good, and gives us lots of energy. Does that mean candy is good? Not really. In small doses it can be, but it usually leads to health issues and "crashing" when consumed regularly.
It's a poor analogy but you get the point.
Has his autism gone too far this time?
To be fair though, it's justified in that it was obnoxious from Gibson to be headstrong about his movie portraying Mayans, when it would've been that much more sensical to depict the Atzecs instead.
I really don't know what made them do it. Did Universal's PR unit determine that "Mayan" is a sexier name to advertize than "Atzec" is?
But yeah, autistic episode over all.
Other than Istanbul and Cordoba is there any city that actually has a good number of historic islamic landmarks (beautiful ones at that) ?
We hear about the magnificence of Baghdad and Damascus, but nothing seems to be left,not even ruins we can use to extrapolate about.
It seems nowadays every good looking islamic landmark is recent, inspired from either Taj Mahal or the Blue Mosque and designed by some western architect.
Pic related doesn't count because it's recent.
But I agree that the archeological remains of the "Islamic Golden Age" are very lacking. Even Córdoba is not really that impressive.
Give me one reason why modern society shouldn't adopt a perhaps milder version of communal child raising till the age of 17 from Sparta. 99% of parents are inept

Has there ever been a historical figure with a more ridiculous name than Nebuchadnezzar?
"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"

"empire-building is wrong unless you're white" - every autist on /his/ and /pol/
"empire-building is wrong unless you're non-white" - every liberal
Should women be banned from Philosophy departments?
Maybe that should include physics etc.
The majority of the time, the women in these departments are fucking idiots. A lot of the men are stupid too but at least they can discuss ideas to an extent and can read a complex text and come to some understanding of what it means but women simply can't.
I am not a misogynist, I am legitimately basing my opinion on experience.
Why is history so eurocentric?
When is it okay to break the law?
Can you know anything?
That phrase must have left a deep impression on Plato when he heard it, for him to use it even though his own system kind of subverts the meaning of it, in it that it allows for the possibility of knowledge.
Or perhpas he thnought that this realization is the beginning of all philosophy, just not the end of it, as the skeptics would have it.

What did Adolf meant by this?
they were all just sentenced to two years of light menial labor for their crimes against the reich but of course asking a Jew to do real work with his hands instead of shifting financial instruments around is the ultimate crime against humanity so the jews opted to be gassed instead
Where white people ever discriminated?
>Inb4 le they are right now meme xD
they aren't. They simply are too retarded to say no to immigrants it's not like Abdul and Jamal enslaved them.
Let me start of the thread right away with the fact there is no such thing as a white culture, race or ethnicity. People of one skin color are not homogenous and the whole idea of 'black' and 'white' people stems from American neo-tribalism, when Europeans had to come up with new ethnic 'guidelines' so you wouldn't have Italians, Germans, Irish etc. bashing eachothers heads in.
TL;DR: Americans ask stupid question, nothing new.
>tfw to intelligent to believe in god but want to
Disbelievers end up in hell. How is that a sign of intelligence? When you can prove if its true or not, isn't it best just to believe anyways so you have nothing to lose? As long as you're secular about there's no problem with being religious.
>yfw the French were right. They should do this after WW I.
Was he really as badass as historians claims he was?
Why did it take them so long to realize how silly bronze swords and bronze shields and bronze armor looked before moving on to iron?
Was everyone just that stupid back then?
Man I'm so glad I live in an era where everyone is smart.
I can't remember where but I seem to recall reading that bronze can hold a sharper edge than iron and was more resistant to rusting. The real reason why iron replaced bronze was because it was logistically easier to make arms and armour from one metal than from the two metals, copper and tin, that bronze required.
Moreoever bronze was more difficult to work than iron and weapon made from it were quite brittle and likely to snap off in combat whereasthough iron would usually bend and could be easily reworked after a battle.
How did you find your religion, /his/?
Why did the Schlieffen Plan fail?
Can you name me a more edgy special snowflake ideology than libretarian socialism?

Hey /his/ I've been thinking a lot about this question and I'm curious to what everyone thinks.
Is love nothing more than a biological feeling? Or is there something more to it that transcends this reality. Is there anything really "special" about love (emotions maybe in general) or is the idea of true love etc all a bunch of bullshit.
I would love (no pun intended) to believe that there is something /more/ to love than just biology, that it can't be created from matter. Am I just being self absorbed?
What happens in the material world has spiritual significance.
Why it is always a love and not pain or feeling of a surprise, horror, disgust or just pure fucking madness? There are so many emotions to choose from, but it is always the one of the most boring ones.
>A spook is haunting Europe, the spook of Communism!
What did he mean by this?
Why couldn't we just get along?
truly a shame
Has there ever been a single person who has done as much for their country as Kemal Atatürk?
