Why did it take so long for USA to abolish slavery and why didnt they do it when they become independent?
It was something already frowned upon on Europe and it was the time when they started to abolished all over Europe and America, hell, it was one of the first thing the Spanish colonies did when they became independent.
I guess we could also ask why it took so long for Brazil.
>>415459 What other country apart from the USA and Brazil had such a big region with an economy based on slavery? And at the same time was big and distant enough to resist external pressure to follow the abolitionist trend from (for example) the British Empire?
>>415459 Brazil didn't abolish slavery in 1871 precisely because they were afraid of a civil war breaking out after having watched what happened in the U.S. Instead they agreed on a very slow process of abolition, involving laws that freed any new-born and old-aged slaves.
>nazis were good guys >they dindu nuffin, they just wanted that lebensraum and defend the german volk Are stormfags ironic or do they actually believe that crap? I can't see how anyone can be sympathetic to the nazis unless they're underage kids going through their edgy phase. These guys murdered millions of people and planned to enslave millions more and they worship them.
>>415433 >These guys murdered millions of people and planned to enslave millions more and they worship them. Well make it equally as bad to worship the Soviets and Imperial British, which a lot of people still do, and they might see some sense.
"He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance."
I know of no new offices erected in America in the present reign, except those of the Commissioners of the Customs and their dependents. Five Commissioners were appointed, and four Surveyors General dismissed; perhaps fifteen to twenty clerks and under officers were... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
No because the monarch always derives his right to rule from a God.
The Egyption pharoes could trace their lineage to the Gods. The Persian Kings also had divine blood. The Roman Emperors were also divine. The Protestant kings were chosen to rule by God. The Catholics kings received their authority from the Pope who was himself God on earth.
However you can have dictatorship, which does not need divine justification. Dicatorships are basically secular monarchy. Heil Hitler.
Can someone give me a historical analysis of why post-war Detroit failed so spectacularly? Like the social, economic, political, etc. reasons why things got as bad as they did? Was the start of the decline the 1967 riots or did it begin earlier/later?
Basically what went wrong?
Here's some footage of the 1967 riots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlQRfIzI4FA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrFoNG-X8F8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbABGhefGQE
>>415107 After WWII the US auto industry was in a good position. It got through the war not only unscathed, but strengthened through war production. All of it's rivals were devastated by war, bankrupt or could be bought out (Canada). As such it could dominate through sheer bulk of product. Even so it's leadership still focused on the US market and what would appeal/be profitable there: big cars with big powerful engines that needed to be replaced every four years on average. This also meant that they would keep WWII era equipment in service for a long time as they saw no need to upgrade
But then Germany and Japan recovered and began building their own cars using the most modern technology to produce them in quantity. They were smaller than US cars but had their own advantages (fuel economy, reliability, light weight and similar). They beat US cars in their home markets and made inroads elsewhere, including the US market. The higher ups thought that Americans for a combination of standing preferences and nationalism would keep buying US cars.
Then there were oil shortages and Americans flocked to buy Japanese and German cars. The bubble burst and sales of US cars fell like a brick during the late 70s and 80s, this did nothing for the reputation of US cars btw.
Fat larper who had a steampunk wedding and chimps out about "functionality" while being obsessed with outdated weapons.
Don't get me wrong, I like swords too, but he is a typical "haha, the katana is inferior to western swords because of functionality; now I'm going to cream myself over the wester katan... i mean gross messer >;^)"
The only things swords are good for are sparing and cutting shit for fun in your back yard, even dressing up for fun is fine. This historical recreation shit is cringe AF though
Them being barbarians is a bluepilled meme. They actually had an empire which was quite comparable to the Romans, but due to Jews gaining power in the Empire and infiltrating the Church, many of the great germanic philosophers and Histories have been lost.
>>414972 dude, same. why the fuck did they travel most of the known world and then invade and control spain? what did they want? where were they from? why did they come? where they running from someone? was it attilla the hun? who were the huns anyway?
Two studies were conducted to establish that existential concerns contribute to anti-atheist sentiments. Experiment 1 found that a subtle reminder of death increased disparagement, social distancing, and distrust of atheists. Experiment 2 found that asking people to think about atheism increased the accessibility of implicit death thoughts. These studies provide the first empirical link between existential concerns and anti-atheist prejudices. (Corey L. Cook, Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, University of Washington Tacoma)
Christians confirmed to be just children scared of death.
>Christians confirmed to be just children scared of death.
Religious people are scared of a life without meaning. After the rush of hedonism carries off, the atheist is left with two choices. The first one is to struggle on, a choice made by the weak masses. The second one is only for the strong; suicide.
>>414647 If you mean mongols that were /cg/ or /tg/ level bloodlusted then, yes, sure.
If you mean Mongols that aren't retarded and actually have their own economic welfare in mind, no. There are far greener pastures and far easier to rape women for the mongols to prey on without having to lug around a bunch of Chinese and Persian artillerymen to destroy each and every one of Europe's hundreds of stone castles.
Probably, but not easily. It took them half a century to fully subjugate China, and I imagine Europe would have been no less difficult. But the Mongols were by far the most advanced military force in their day, combining steppe tactics, just about every piece of siege technology that existed in Asia, and unmatched discipline and leadership. They could easily wipe out any European army; the Poles and Hungarians were completely crushed by them. Sieges would have been more difficult, but with their technological capabilities there's no reason to think they couldn't overcome... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The Messiah will do many things. >The whole world will worship the One God of Israel. Isaiah 2:11-17, Isaiah 40:5, Zephaniah 3:9 Currently does not happen. >Knowledge of God will fill the world. Isaiah 11:9, 45:23, 66:23, Jeremiah 31:33, Zechariah 3:9, 8:23, 14:9,16, Ezekiel 38:23, Psalm 86:9 This means irrefutable evidence. Knowledge, not faith. >All Israelites will be returned to their homeland Isaiah 11:12, 27:12-13, Ezekiel 11:17, 36:24, Deuteronomy 30:3 I am still in America. >The Jewish people will experience eternal joy and gladness. Isaiah 51:11 Holocaust? Inquisition? Progroms? >Nations will recognize the wrongs they did to Israel. Isaiah 52:13-53:5 Holocaust deniers >The peoples of the world will turn to the Jews for spiritual guidance. Zechariah 8:23 Spiritual, not monetary. >Weapons of war will be destroyed. Ezekiel 39:9 Not destroyed by nuclear weapons. >All of the dead will rise again Isaiah 26:19 You claim one dude, I want them all. >A person’s genealogical/tribal membership are transmitted exclusively through one’s physical father. Numbers 1:18, Jeremiah 33:17 Jesus whose alleged sketchy genealogy is maternal cannot possibly be a descendent of the tribe of Judah >Third Temple will be rebuilt. Micah 4:1, Ezekiel 40-42, Isaiah 2:2-3, Malachi 3:4, Zechariah 14:20-21, Not a person, but a physical building. >World Peace: Isaiah 2:4, 11:6, 60:18 Micah 4:1-4, Hosea 2:20 Open a newspaper lately? >Christianity claims that Jesus "Fulfilled the law" According to Deut 13:2-7, this makes Jesus a false prophet. >All Jews will embrace Torah observance. Ezekiel 37:24, Deuteronomy 30:8-10, Jeremiah 31:32, Ezekiel 11:19-20, 36:26-27. How many Jews are fully observant today? >The Messiah can not be part God. Deut 6:4 Not explicitly Jesus, but the idea that the Messiah will be Godly is antithetical to Judaism.
