How beautiful could Europe be today if WWII hadn't happened?

What actually caused the massive shift to the left seen in the last few years? Especially with millennials.
>"He who is not a républicain at twenty compels one to doubt the generosity of his heart; but he who, after thirty, persists, compels one to doubt the soundness of his mind."
- attributed to Edmund Burke, 1875
>And he said to them, "I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.
well Jesus was standing there right? he's still alive in heaven. checkmate atheists!
Keep reading. They thought John was going to live forever. There's a reason for that.
Jesus must have been looking at John when he said it.
And John saw Jesus coming down from heaven in glory before he died, and wrote of the experience in the Revelation.
Some neither precludes all nor one.
>28 Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.
Three of those standing there were Peter, James, and John
The next verses, Matthew 17:1-2:
>1 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; 2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes...

why does it keep on failing /his/torians?
it doesn't benefit globalized capitalism so globalist capitalist powers fuck with it as much as possible until it crumbles.
also, communism literally works until NK crumbles, you can't say otherwise without being objectively wrong.
>j-juche isn't communism!!1!
no, it just isn't your specific idea of what communism is. weighted benefits towards those that reinforce the system + international trade conducted by the ruling party are adaptations that made it so NK didn't crumble.
Because humans, every goddamn time.
One day, the machines, with their superior intellect and infinitely better grasp of resource prioritization, will show how it's done. (Those still alive, if any, that is.)
What topics in history would /his/ say are understudied?
The Barbary Wars.
Literally Americans vs Muslims in the 19th Century.

What are some interesting historical facts about Bulgaria? It seems like a rather irrelevant yet curious place.
Was the war of northern aggression the most unjust war of all time?
What exactly is sharia law?
Why did the yanks insist on starting the war of northern aggression, even though the south seceded democratically?
Lincoln was determined not to let the country split, hence the suspending of habeus corpus, etc. Slavery has been a poison in North America for a long, long, long time, and continues to poison the well today.
Hey guys, so I'm a wonderful product of the American education system and I was wondering how historically accurate depictions of vikings as horrible brutalistic barbarians are? I mean, for example when you look at one of the biggest contemporary depictions of the Norsemen in media, the TV show Vikings, they're portrayed as these horrible barbarians that just slaughtered unarmed men, women, and children with a few shinning examples going against the grain, I highly doubt that a people that pioneered ship building in Europe and were the first from Europe to reach as far as Greenland and North America were these unrelenting savages. Were there different phases where once they reached the British Isles, etc, that they shaped up and became more "respectable"? I imagine a few posts can't sum it up very well but a TL;DR and if you guys have any suggested literature or other materials that someone looking for an accurate non-politicized version of Viking history and accolades?
Sounds like you're looking for emotional tracts instead of history, especially since you're looking fir evidence to support your predetermined conclusion. Every culture killed and raped people bro.
What lead to the rise of Defeatism and Pacifism in France after WW I?
Why did French people seems so "weak willed" in WW II compare to pre WW I French ?
I don't think they were weak willed I think they just got beat by superior German tactics. So the Germans conquered the French men via military and the French women romantically.
>lost their drive after taking back alsace-lorraine
>lost literally millions of men
>saw the horrors of war first hand
>reduced economically into being britain and america's pet
The same thing happened to Britain after ww2, which is why they so willingly embraced being America's pet and gave up their colonial holdings.
Alright anons your Paris, what do you do?
>acquaintance and I casually talking about WWII
>get to the end of the war
>say "man that period after the war would've been a great time to live with the economic prosperity and all!"
>she says "oh you mean the time when sexism and racism was rampant?"
>say "you can't just condemn any period before 2000, there have been good times before."

This is what a whole generation is being raised to believe. I had a class where the teacher was talking about the origin of medicine. Numerous students were visibly upset that the topic surrounded only men despite the fact that their contributions indirectly helped THEIR lives. How can you even be so dumb to dismiss men that gave their whole lives so that one day a dumb whore like you can reap the benefits?
>considering yourself as a well informed and highly educated intellectual
>not being anarcho-syndicalist
I seriously hope you guys don't do this
How did the black plague spread from China to Europe?
It takes months to years to get from one corner to the other, theres no way people could survive long enough
The symptoms appear within a week and it has nearly 100% mortality rate
Where does the 'USA as world police and upholder of freedom, democracy and human rights' meme come from?
How come soldiers from Great Britain made up for less than half of total British Empire forces during WW1?
Not enough brave British men could be found in the motherland?
no, it was easier to send in people you didn't have to account for (i.e. pakis and those pesky boers). Also the practice of sending conscripts from countries you have subjugated into battle has been done since the advent of Empires.
tldr it's easier to send some poor bastard halfway around the world to fight for a country he'll never see again than your neighbor's son.
Why did Caucasians and Mongoloids dominate over the indigenous peoples of Asia?

The first wave of homo anatomically modern humans out of africa was cut off by super volcano eruptions.
When the populations rebounded and started migrating again. they went in a different direction and mixed with Neanderthal and Desnovian.
Wtf are you taking about. Ainu are a modernday tribe. They are just another ethnicity of Japan exept they have alittle more Jomon blood than Japanese.
These hairy people that looked like australian aboriginals lived in china and japan
There are historical records of royal campaigns of genocide against these people in china.
In Japan they were called Emishi
And yes I live in Japan
Did Tsar Nick really deserve to die?
I understand why it was done though, Russia suffered quite terribly during the war. It's also understandable why his entire family including young children were butchered as well. Now there can be no going back.
>WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST!!!
Who was the worst Roman emperor? Not in the sense of who damaged the empire the most, but who was the biggest cunt of them all?
I feel like Constantine always reeked of self-advancement, and his stabilization of the roman empire was only matched by his renovation of it in his own image. Not that he was the only megalomaniac to hold the purple, or the only emperor to practice nepoticide.
Why would God created us knowing we would sin? Can't he predict the future?
If he loves us so much, why would he call us abominations after programming us with gay impulse
Why would God curse us knowing all the damage it would do to the species afterwards?
>google search Pavlov's dogs
No one is programmed with gay impulses, loose the crutch and stop being a victim. God gave you free will, you are the master of your own ship, quit being cucked by societies sexual delusions.
God did not create us so we would sin, God created us with free will. Sin is an side effect of it, it is not gods intention. It is simply a necessary part of giving us free will.
When you ask if God can predict the future you are looking at Gods existence in time in the wrong way - he does not exist in a linear fashion in time along with us, but rather outside of it. He does not predict, he knows because it has already happened for him.
God does not call anyone abominations - if anything it can be argued that since Jesus Christ fulfilled the laws of the old testament,...

Is philosophy the only smart people humanities subject?
>health professions that low
>implying getting into medical school and becoming a doctor requires less IQ than computer "science"
Lol, computer science requires much more intelligence than becoming a "doctor" which mostly requires almost mindless memorization, you dumb cuck.
Also lolling at philosophy that high, I could majore in such a meme like degree within a year without any stress
>when you realise the huns were called the huns because as they were heading to fight hungarian knights, the knights would say 'there are HUNdreds of them!'
What do you think of Timeless?
Leaders? Thinkers? Technologists?
Which has the greatest effect on humanity and the direction of society?
Alexander the Great? Aristotle? Archimedes?
They aren't exactly complete contemporaries, but who matters more?
Who would you rather be?
They all play a significant role in the world. The thinkers envision the goals, the technologists invent the means to achieve them better, and the leaders utilize the means and take us to our goals.
It's like if the leader was the pilot, the thinker had the map, and the technologist made the plane.
I'd rather be the leader, but I'd be happy enough as the thinker. I'm not really any of them though.
I would say that the leaders matter less in the end because they can't really change society on deep, meaningful level. Power is always zero sum game. If you exclude Alexander, then someone else take title of the greatest ruler. All borders and all states would be different but majority of people lives stay the same. Exclude guy who comes up with some important original ideas and they are gone forever.
Why did so many Islamic sects (Alawites, Nusayris, Dhammites, etc.) end up worshiping Ali as a literal God?
