Can someone who has actually studied Nietzsche give me a quick and dirty guide to becoming Ubermensch?
Are there any posters here who don't consider human life innately precious?
In a manner of speaking.
It's normal for people to consider human lives more valuable than non-human lives, if only as a consequence of genetics and socialization.
Practically speaking, though, life is cheap. People die all the time for stupid as shit reasons. People can be convinced to kill other people very easily, and we're always three missed meals away from that "innate preciousness" vanishing.
Still, yeah, I think we have an in-born as well as social predisposition to consider human life more valuable than other life.
How does one know if they're a pseudo-intellectual or not? How does one become an intellectual?

I've heard and seen the name come up in relation to Ancient Egypt, but was there anything culturally significant about the Nubian Kingdoms other than their interactions with the Ancient Egyptians? Also, how did the Nubians manage to rule Egypt for a time during the Middle Kingdom?
Contrary to popular belief upper Egypt and lower Nubia have a common origin.
The paintings and reliefs you see of the two in relation to one another in Egypt is highly symbolic, both share a common East African and North African stock.
Beyond that they are first and foremost both a Nile riverine culture, more than any other neighbor they are most alike.
I find people talking about that dynastic era of refutable Nubian rulers ignore the very interwoven nature of two peoples.
Oh and Beja still exist today in Sudan and until the Ottomans still worshiped the Egyptian deities.
Are Humans naturally good or evil ? Some agreed that humans were born good, others said the opposite, your thought ?

How far did it set us back?
Was the average roman soldier equipped like this? Seems like full plate would be expensive for a foot soldier. Or is this just a Hollywood meme?
Why do people continue to contend that communism has never been tried before in debates around the practicality of the ideology? Surely ubiquitous and expedient backwards slides into petty despotism is evidence enough of the instability inherent in handing power over so much to so few.
Perhaps it'd be more appropriate to say that communism has never been accomplished before? This I fear will be seen by Marxian intellectuals as the praise of what could be, rather than the admonishment of what couldn't be that it is.
Communism has never been tried because it's IMPOSSIBLE to try that
Unless we'll have some kind of apocalypse which will destroy all civilizations, ideologies and doctrines except the communist one.

Why did he say this? does he realize that discussing the reason philosophy is dead is in itself philosophy?
What led to the Korean War? What was the unified Korean peninsula like before it?
What attempts have the countries made towards reunification?
it was taken over by japan in the early 20th centuary before that it was sort of isolationsit.
the war started when the communist north wanted to reunite the country which have ruined attempts at unification indefinably until something major changes in the political climate
>What led to the Korean War?
The southern section of the korean party over selling it's organisational levels (We'll have taken Seoul before the tanks reach it).
>What was the unified Korean peninsula like before it?
Heavily industrialised in the North (to japanese levels). A japanese wage slave labour camp.

What is the most recent army that the Romans could beat? I was watching Kingdom of Heaven which is set in the 1100s and I really don't see why Crassus' legions couldn't beat the Knights Templar. Nobody was wearing plate in the film all they have over the Romans is the stirrup and maybe crossbows.
I assume you mean the Late Republic legions since you mentioned Crassus. The answer is whoever can match the Romans discipline and/or catch them at their weakest. Technology wise isn't nearly as important since per se, but it would give the Romans an edge since they have manufactories to supply their legionaries a lot better than any medieval army in the high middle ages.
