History is boring.
What did Enrique do to deserve these shitty stats?
ITT: Absolute Madmans
Japanese "comfort women"
Were they real, or is it all just typical Korean lies and exaggeration?
What's even worse was the equivalent in Russia for the German army. An estimated million babies were born by German soldiers and Russian women.
People always talk about how horrible the Russian soldiers raping German girls was, which it was, but people don't see the Eastern front.

>there are people in this board RIGHT NOW that unironally believe that this braindamaged meme philosopher that was abused as a child wasn't just a crazy old man spitting out his thoughts
HAHAHAHAHA, what the fuck
>i have a bachellor in philsophy but I can't use google
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Stirner#Biography Here. Not only he was abused as a child but also he had a very sad childhood in general which of course made him a lunatic. He literally believes in ghosts. There's no way this paranoid can be taken seriously and whoever buys into his philosophy probaly didn't get attention from daddy and momma

What is the formula for eternal happiness?
Contrite heart + Blood of Jesus = Eternal Happiness
happiness is rarely possible, and certainly impeded, amidst loneliness, fear, purposelessness, destruction, misery, insanity, or chronic anxiety or stress, among other things.

How much longer can we ignore the fact Chinese discovered the Americas?
Which brings me to the question, were the Olmecs fully Chinese? I really doubt it, but you can't deny the Asian features of them.
Robert, slavery is evil!
From my point of the view the abolitionists are evil!
