>Is made by god
>has will to rebel
>since he has both, assumes that god has made him with the will to rebel and that his rebellion is perfect in cause.
Why were there no satanism cults that were just edgelords edging out? I want to crusade in the name of sentience and animalism.
What are some must-read history books?
How would history view hitler if he hadn't sported that chaplin-stache?
He would have been shut down in the early 30s.
Seriously, the only reason people didn't take him seriously when he started remilitarizing and occupying the Rhineland is because they associated him with the lovable tramp Chaplain.
He would have been a would-be revanchist who got slapped down.
Opinions on Hellenismos? Is it just an ironic muh heritage cosplay? How can you mystify and worship nature in the 21st century?
As in the beginner's guide? Probably a bit weak, though flipping through they seem to know what they're on about.
That said, there are many people reconstructing the Greek systems using publications of academic collections of Sacred Law, what fragments we have of the Mystery Cult material, and Jake Stratton Kent's Greek Magical Papyrus. Large swaths of that material's covered in my library linked in the occultism thread.
Huh, going through their recommended reading, in Alexander's Beginner's Guide, they mention Stephen Flowers but not JSK.
For those interested in Greek praxis I'd recommend his Geosophia and comments on the rite of the Headless One.
So, historically speaking, when was Syria's golden age? Did it ever have one? It couldn't have always been like this.
Damascus was the capital of the Umayyad Caliphate.
If we're accepting pre-arab times, Antioch, while now in modern Turkey, was historically the traditional capital of Syria. It was the capital of the Seleucid Empire and probably the second city in the Eastern Roman Empire.
Syria was from very early on a major center of civilization. In fact the Arameans where hugely influential to the developement of societies.
The region was also very prosperous
Really the region only recently fell into turmoil after decolonization.
As it turns out drawing arbitrary boarders that disregard the local populations can make an uneasy political climate. Then when the only stable government strong enough to hold the country together gets torn apart by the Arab spring, everything fell apart
How could Nazism have been prevented taking over in 1933?
Remember this was the preferred weapon of the Samurai. The Japanese loved these weapons, their artisans got real good at making them and they mastered their usage.
Only in later sengoku, people tend to forget they only used guns in war for 70 years, and only in the later time used in a massive way, meanwhile the true weapons of the samurai was the bow and they cute ponies than they copied from the Eishi.
During most of the Tokugawa period there was no real internal or external threats to Japan so they stuck with what worked. In the 19th century when the Europeans began to pose a threat to Japan again they did upgrade very quickly, even before Commadore Perry.
How does something like this even happen?
This occurred at the height of the Japanese empire and at the lowest point in the British empire. Japan had conquered most of east Asia by thing point including the Philippines. Britain on the other hand was effectively surrounded and without and immediate ally. There was very little British victories at this point in the war which they had fought generally alone up until now. British asia was blocked off from the mainland and isolated. This is not very good for moral
British command in Malaya was rotten to the core. if they knew what they were in for things might have panned out differently, that faggot Heenan should have seen the way things might have blown being in Japan so late, but the stupid cunt spied for the Japs seemingly for kicks.
So what is the difference between Justice and Vengance?
Justice is seen as an objective punishment, while Vengeance is seen as subjective. Justice is done through systems and people before being finalized while Vengeance is seemingly sudden done through a single person or a small group of people.
A person is found to be a rapist, evidence is sought after, and trials are held. That is considered justice.
A person bitter at the rapist from first hand or from seeing the aftermath either kills them or rapes them with objects. That is seen as vengeance because you are taking it upon yourself to deal the punishment.
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
There is no difference. Stupid amerburgers didn't understand that you could have a justice system without the need of revenge (safety, rehabilitation) so instead they tried to justify revenge by pretending its something different that is noble.
That's today burgers still sperg out over "muh justice must be done" with capital punishment and shit, while aryans just throw people into prison to protect society, everything else is irrelevant.
Does the "start with the greeks" meme apply to those seeking to learn about history, or are there different text one should start with. What's the point of reading Herodotus if so much of what he wrote was wrong?
What's your opinion of the man, /his?
I liked blueprint for armageddon. Ww1 is so sad and 2spooky and he definitely talked about it that way. I can't wait to read the books he mentioned. He can be a bit hammy, but I appreciate his enthusiasm.
Just listening to it while closing down the kitchen at work was really fun. And made me not feel bad about anything because at least I wasn't getting BTFO by artillery in verdun.
ITT: We post events that led to the downfall of Nations/Civilizations.
Honourable mentions :
Battle of Mohacs
Battle of White Mountain
Battle of Adrianople
Battle of Manzikert
>The Battle of White Mountain consigned the Bohemians to a fate of subservience to the Hapsburg crown for centuries.
>King Louis II' death would place the allow Ferdinand Hapsburg to press his claim on both Bohemia and Hungary.
Why does everyone shit on psychology? The field seems extremely interesting, you get to interact with a range of people rather than autists and computer screeba, and the job prospects at accreditation (usually postgraduate) level are even better than engineering in some places. Looking on seek I can see multiple jobs a day listed in my state of about 4 million people.
So, why do people act as if studying it is a death sentence?
If a faulty premise always leads to faulty conclusions, how far do you think we have to go back to fix humanity? Should meditation be the baseline for a new kind of science?
>meditation be the baseline for a new kind of science
>faulty premise necessarily leads to faulty conclusions
Not necessarily. You can arrive at the correct conclusion from a faulty premise. You learn that in the logic class.
Was he really a bad guy?
Yeah he was pretty bad.
>inb4 deposing him led to ISIS
Allowing the complete disenfranchisement of sunni iraqis at the hands of the Maliki regime led to ISIS, as people won't fight for a government that treats them like shit.
Systematic genocide is generally viewed negatively, but many people claim it is worse now that ISIS has some power in the region and commits atrocities even though the numbers pale in comparison.
