Reminder that Robespierre did nothing wrong
Danton was a mistake.
Also he cared too much about countering atheism. The main issue of the revolution was not the virtues and lack thereof of the people, or the english and counterrevolutionnary plots, but the generalized corruption of the new and not so new elites.

What the fuck happened?
Wonder how Europe is going to look in 15 to 20 years with all the middle eastern refugees they've taken in. I don't think it's so much they they are Muslims, but more the combination of coming from a war torn country + Muslim beliefs that is going to cause a fuck load of problems.
/his/, can you recommend me any solid books about the history of Knights, especially during the Early and High Middle Ages? Looking for Anglo-French books, but anything on Italy would be pretty cool too.
Alternatively, books on the overall nature of war from the Norman Invasions of Sicily and England to the Hundred Years' War.
Richard Barber has various jobs about knights and chivalry.
Jean Flori has another easily readable book in the subject.
Georges Duby has an small article about about the young and the chivalry society that its really funny and interesting to read.
Not really. There was cavalry, but previously this was mostly light cav that used javelins. IIRC the Normans largely defined the role in the 11th Century, with the Norman cavalry deciding to hang onto their spears in Hastings instead of tossing them.
Is a degree in Classics the way to go?
Half of my university's political science/history courses are about muh colonialism and immigration.
A degree not in history would be preferable, unless you are aspiring to be the assistant manager at Starbuck's.
Unless you're doing history for pre-law you're probably fucked.
But yeah that said my concentration is in classical studies. Anything else and you're going to hear endless leftist white guilt and self-flagellation.
Ah, then yes. Do classics. Like I said, most other histories will be invaded with SJWs doing it for a humanities credit and spewing their toxic white self-hate. However studying classical civilizations tends to scare them away so you'll be fine
Was he a power hungry dictator? Was he a righteous man spreading communist values across Europe?
What is your opinion on Stalin?
Waged a war of justice against Hitler and the archaic ideas of fascism.
I think Trotsky should get more of the fame, however.
>deny imperialistic nature in presentation
>man of the people style bullshit
>served as the model for the worst dictatorships in Asia
>can't even look cool or live by an ideology that isn't naive while doing it
>territories riddled with dissent and failure after his death
pretty shitty desu

Are their any noticeable effects of neanderthal genes among modern human populations?
specifically physically, i know that the neanderthal admixture changed brain composition and immune system function
Larger supra orbital torus, occipital bun, larger nose cavity, heavier brow ridge, thicker skin
Some say red hair and other characteristics but that's highly debatable and involving complete speculation
Not really. At absolute most a person can have up to 4% of the DNA that seperates them from chimps (which is about 1% of the total genome) be from neanderthals. Considering that the majority of DNA is non-coding junk sequences, you're looking at imperceptible differences based purely on neanderthal dna.
There are people on /his/ who unironically believe class struggle existed before the 19th century
seems like before the 19th century, people believed that you were simply born into your lot in life because you either deserve it or god demanded it. seems pretty logical for the times. this whole idea of "they have more than me because they oppress me" is silly because 9 times out of 10, they have more than you because they are better than you in every way.
I had a very socialist teacher once and talked about medieval pre industrial europe as if it was a golden age of socialism and self reliance, where people shared the open land and bartered for goods while the lords watched over from afar with little meddling.
Is there some kind of academic sect of socialism that actually believes this?
Why is he pegged as a Prussian apologist? I don't understand why "thesis antithesis lmoa" necessarily leads to "Prussia was totally justified"
Why do so many cultures have depictions and stories of dragons despite being mythical?
The word dinosaur was invented in 1841. It means terrible lizard.
Before that, they were called dragons. The reason so many ancient cultures and civilizations talk about dragons is because man lived with them. There are even pots depicting man riding on dinosaurs.
What are some /his/ approved youtube channels?
Real Crusade History

Why was the American Revolution so successful? Why has almost every other revolution throughout history resulted in infighting, corruption and tyranny?
Decentralized government, wealth, and FREEEEEEDUMMMBB sure help. Can't revolt against what you can't see, don't need to revolt when you have food on the table, and revolting sounds like a shit idea when you realize despotism is the inevitable product of revolt in a republic.
>Why was the American Revolution so successful?
Sounds like infighting, corruption and tyranny to me.
Learn your fucking history. Given how fucking dumb you are, start with Zinn, because recommending Dubofsky is a bridge too far for your ignorance.
Okay /his/, do you think you've learned more reading Wikipedia or lurking this board?
There is no true universal or objective morality.
Prove me wrong.
Protip: you can't.
