Why didn't Jews just willingly leave Germany when the Nazis took power?
It wasn't as it the Nazis banned them from leaving, they wanted them gone. And if they had all left there wouldn't have been any holocaust.
Before they started killing them the Nazis also tried getting other countries to take them, like America, but these countries refused. Why would they refuse?
Look up the Haavara Agreement. The National Socialists assisted the Jews, 50,000 (one tenth of the Jewish population in Germany) in emigrating to Palestine with their possessions.
Both narratives that the National Socialists intended to kill all the Jews and wouldn't let them leave are fabricated.
Are Basques the only true Natives of Europe ?
Basques simply have a much smaller percentage of Indo-European invader in them. Many Europeans descent from a raging warband of steppe dwelling male horse riders.
Pronbably not but you could argue they are the most indigenous out of all extant groups in terms of language at least.
On the other hand Indo-Europeans are thought to have come from Samara Russia which is slightly on the European side of the Urals.
Can we have a thread concerning the sociological reasons behind the explosive growth of Protestant Christianity - particularly, evangelicals - in Mexico (and Latin America), at the cost of traditional Catholicism? It's a very interesting phenomenon, I think. Regions that one would usually associate with Catholicism are increasingly converting to Protestantism: for example, in the Mexican states of Chiapas, Quintana Roo, Campeche, and Tabasco. In Chiapas, the Protestant population now encompasses ~15% of the population, and very likely will exceed 20% in the next few years!

Why is marxism so common in history works and academia, /his/?
Missing the point faggot, he is asking why it is peculiar to history and sociology
Why isn't Paul Krugman a revolutionary marxist, you know? How come Friedman didn't arrive at libertarian socialism? Why are natural scientists not usually of the radical left?
Was he right?
>What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the Cold War, or the passing of a particular period of post-war history, but the end of history as such: that is, the end point of mankind's ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government.
>Was he right.
>Unironically asking this at the end of 2k16.
Of course he wasn't. This whole book reeks of the ignorance an empire displays in its prime imperial moment. Nowadays we are witnessing the slow decay of the american empire and the multipolarization of the world.

Has there ever been a battle in history with zero to no casualties on one side?
Is depression a meme disorder? Has anyone ever in history suffered from it?
Today literally any special snowflake can fake it. People in the past would just tell you to stop being a bitch and man up.
Probably because until recently, nobody had time to be depressed because they were too busy spending 16+ hours a day just focused on surviving. Aristocracies probably had many cases of depression.
Why do Catholicucks consistently claim that Jesus claimed to be God when he never said anything of the sort?
He said things only God can say and did things only God can do.
Nice try heretic, the Lord did claim what He is and it has nothing to do with popery
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Why don't animals deserve the right to not be slaughtered to be eaten? Can someone give me a good logical argument why it is acceptable to kill animals without consequence?
They are living, feeling animals like us and feel pain.
It's not a question of morals, most people just like to eat meat, and so there's a demand, and so that demand is met.
It would be wonderful if everyone was so self-conscious but that's not how humanity works.
Is IQ a spook?
I'm considering taking the Mensa test. I know I won't make it, but I wanna know my score.
literally a 99%ers club
>Is IQ a spook
Only if you commit to actions above your egotistical rational using it as justification.
>Is IQ worth anything?
In children on a mass scale. IQ on a single adult is literally their puzzle solving ability and does not denote intelligence.
"No". You can practice for an IQ test beforehand. You can actually train somebody with down syndrome to score over 200 on the tests.
The absolute only time IQ has worth is measuring the development speed of children and only when the sample size is very large.
Is he, dare I say it, /ourguy/?
Nope. His imaginary world is so perfect it's boring.
GRRM while not particularly skilled at compact writing(or writing to begin with, watch the show instead) even compared to Tolkien created something that feels real.
How come the USA always demands free trade when it is one of the most protectionist developed nations?
Free trade would be best when government is cutting into my private profits. When I'm going broke it's the government's job to bail me out at the expense of general society.

If Muhammad was a trader, then how did he learn to fight and lead armies?
how does a trader in late antiquity Arabia know how to wield a sword or fight in mail armor or fight on horseback?
You don't really need much knowledge of tactics and strategy to get men to fight for you, you just need to properly motivate them. Most warlords led through their character and by personal example rather than by their tactical knowledge.
Post countries that should be divided between other countries
england needs to be divided into inner city london, south east, deep north, midlands, manchester-leeds urban area, cornwall and then wales which can have parts of south west like somerset and bristol.

/tv/ has the best Tolkien threads on this website, almost daily. 4chan culture strangely enough includes Tolkien and all the nerds who cannot get enough of his lore.
You will always almost get a Tolkien thread on 4chan, it's one of the only reasons I still stay here.
I think cats, because without them, we may have been wiped out due to pests infecting our food and spreading disease.
It was the beasts of burden that enabled the agrarian revolution in Europe
Dogs kept pre-civilized humans safe
Cats are good for pest control, sure, but nowhere near as significant in human civilization as dogs
Cats are relatively useless. Along with vermin, they kill birds, snakes, lizards, and frogs- which tend to also eat pests.
Plus you can't easily compost cat manure like you can dog manure. You'd need a special vermiculture that only ate cat shit. Whereas you can mix dog shit in with your food scraps to make high quality worm castings.
In short, Dogs are the better deal. They've been known to protect humans from larger predators like cougars, bears, wolves, coyotes, foxes etc. While there...

got any stem friends who will sometimes put on a very patronizing, slow voice and tell you something completely wrong about history? how do you deal with them? any good stories?
why is it that stemfags never bother with the meta, like an autist staring at the cycles of a washing machine and loving all its mechanics, but never bothers to think about its functional role, or what exactly a washing machine is and isn't. Why is it there, etc. Otherwise it's just data with no realization or comprehension

Is it true that French-Canadians spoke French before the Frenchmen ?
Is the declaration of wars now obsolete? When was the last declaration of war between nations and who are involved?
What's keeping us from declaring future wars? Is it because of the technological advancements? i.e. First strikes / massive surprise attacks?

Hey I need help finding a writer.
He seemed like a philosopher and he wrote about things like "Divine Mind" or "Universal Spirit"
It was written very brilliantly so it wasn't your average Hindu saint or new age author.
I'm guessing it was an older (18th century) German Philosopher.
Why did wrestling become so big in turkic and mongolian cultures?
What does the steppe environment do that stimulates that?
because all they did is fight? i mean these guys lived in a culture where a couple of years of peace meant that the khan was weak, obviosly all theyre going to train and focus on is fighting.
It was big everywhere. I'd be interested to know why it diminished in Europe but it was still very common and well explored by the early renaissance. I guess Pugilism and to a lesser extent fencing took grew to dominate the martial arts scene in Europe too much.
Wrestlings great and take no equipment whatsoever so other than tutelage it's completely free.
Was he responsible for the young senators killing Iulius Caesar? Did he influence them while keeping his hands clean? Was he a cunning manipulator?
Cicero was a man who thought public order was the most important thing. So I think he would rather prefer ceaser left to govern some far away place rather than him getting stabbed by his fellow romans.
Probably not, Cicero was old as fuck back then and at peace with Ceasar (Cicero was present in Pompey's camp during battle of Pharsalus, but Ceasar forgave him and treated him with utmost respect). Cicero was mostly focused on writing philosophical works serving as a mean of consolation for his daughter's death. He kept away from politics during Ceasar's reign. He only came back to it when he wanted to slander Marc Anthony, which ended badly for him.
Thank you for your insight, I forgot that he was already pretty old by then. Ifind it fascinating that he didn't interfere with Ceaser by the time he was dictator yet completely changed his approach when Marcus Antonius came into power.
What must Antonius have done to him for making Cicero so angry and making him write those Philippicae. It's almost amusing reading those speeches.
