What allegories it contains are found myriad throughout history and the show itself isn't the best way of portraying or elucidating them.
Don't put too much stock into a cartoon which runs over 100 episodes and is literally a waste of some 45+ hours of your life where you could do far more productive things if you were genuinely interested in politics, military, history etc.
So, tell me about tenochtitlan and why it's the best city ever.
>built in the middle of a lake on top of the water somehow >no plagues >most populated city during its time >even Spaniards were amazed by its magnificence >"When we saw so many cities and villages built in the water and other great towns on dry land we were amazed and said that it was like the enchantments (...) on account of the great towers...

>>411431 Tenochtitlan was cleaner and more populous than London at the same time period, they also had chinampas which were floating gardens that could yield up to 7 harvests per year.
They also came up with the idea of transporting food and materials via canals (something only until the industrial revolution was implemented in Europe) which is why they never really had the need of beasts of burden and wheels.
They needed oil. Modern militaries need oil. America was by in large the leading supplier of oil. When America stopped selling oil to Japan they were fucked. Only two places in the area had oil, Indonesia (Dutch owned which will protected by America and Britain) and Siberia which will lead to the Soviets kicking their shit in and invading China directly. So they need to fight America to get their oil back to continue invading China and the rest of Asia. So they made the best... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

They might have known that they would lose an all-out Pacific war in the end, but were hoping that the US would be afraid of the potential losses of such a war, even if they were victorious.
because it was through their direct actions and aggressive behavior that the war had escalated into a massive conflict actions such as encouraging austria to proceed with a much desired military action in the balkans such as invading neutral belgium and committing atrocities there such as waging a war of aggression such as attacking france such as setting their sights on a confrontation with russia already a few years prior and doing the above and below to make it happen such as submitting russia to an extremely harsh peace treaty such as isolating france...

They'd likely remain Christian to this day, and without the Arabs bringing a swift end to them, they'd have the resources to continue to dominate everything south of the Danube. They'd be in better shape to fight the Bulgars and Slavic invaders, perhaps incorporate them into the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Before I start Freedom of speech != freedom to disturb the peace(screaming stuff at people or forcing them to listen to you), let's make that clear.

Why haven't you read Yang Zhu (aka Yung Chu) aka The Spookbuster of the East?
>Life is full of suffering, and its chief purpose is pleasure. There is no god and no after-life; men are the helpless puppets of the blind natural forces that made them, and that gave them their unchosen ancestry and their inalienable character. The wise man will accept this fate without complaint, but will not be fooled by all the nonsense of Confucius and Mozi about inherent virtue, universal love, and a good name: morality is a deception practised upon the simple...
