This actually exists, I have only one question.
What should be done about sociopaths?
>tfw no French-speaking Egypt ruled by the Napoleon dynasty
>tfw you will never live in Paris during the Century of Enlightenment
Give me your feels, /his/
Egypt until the 1950s was patrician as fuck.
>Sic semper tyrannis!
how do you respond?
What was life like in Francoist Spain?
What the fuck was it?
I can't find anything more than some basic shit on Wikipedia that tldr says "there were Slavic tribes somewhere here"
Does anyone have any in depth/detailed resources on what was in Russia before 862 (start of Kievan Rus), stuff like states, ethnicities, music, architecture, history ( kings and wars and borders and etc)
The Cambridge History of Russia, Volume 1: From Early Rus’ to 1689

When did the Mesopotamian culture disappear? It seemed still flourishing during Alexander's conquest and was still distinct during the rule of Antioch III.
Who wrecked it? Late Seleucids? Parthians? Sassanians? Or maybe Arabs?
It sort of just slowly died out after Alexander's conquest under the Seleucids and Parthians. It was long dead by the Arab conquest.
If anyone killed it, it was Alexander. It didn't suddenly end under his reign, but he was the one who set in motion the process of Hellenization that ultimately ended Mesopotamian civilization.
Hey guys, just a discussion on all that is Utilitarian. What is the best version of it, why it fails, why it succeeds,and worst misunderstanding of it you've come across. Remember the basis of all utilitarianism
Principle of utility: The greatest happiness for the greatest number. (An essay on the principles of Govt Jb preistley).
How would you describe happiness?
I mean you can only sling that mud at Bentham because his the only one who defined happiness as pleasure. I would argue that Bentham's theory is more refined then simply hedonism, he even has a calculus. Do you like the theory or nah?
Thoughts on his philosophy?
Pretty good on the lower levels because his dayjob is "le science man" (think Dicky Dawkins exploring rather than dimissing other fields). But on the higher levels he's committed to western academia dogma, utilitarianism, humanitarianism, etc.
I think his age shows too. For example many of his readings on philosophy or music are clearly straight from outdated textbooks/translations.
The fact that so many books still name the Scaruffi as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" philosopher ever only tells you how far philosophy still is from becoming a serious art. Scientists have long recognized that the greatest scientists of all times are Issac Newton and Albert Einstein, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Historians rank the highly controversial Herodotus over historians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Philosophers are still blinded by commercial success....

What is Jerusalem worth?
I'm tired of the memes and conjecture.
Were the Egyptians more like blacks, arabs, or whites?
Is there ANY legitimate research or proof that they were black in existence that hasn't been stifled by the dogmatic anti-race defining scientific community?
They were a splinter group of proto-Bedouins
We have this huge thread yesterday.
They weren't black.
They weren't white
They weren't Arabs.
They were of the group that Arabs, Berbers and semites belong to belong to, before they splintered off. The modern Egyptian population is 90% the same as the ancient population according to genetics, history and language.
What led Prussia to success in the Franco-Austrian war and the Franco-Prussian war? I know Bismark controlled the diplomacy but who controlled the army?
Actually having a pre thought out plan of attack and defensive
Much better Artillery
A brilliant new general staff system
Better field tactics
A general understanding of the way warfare had changed in the last 20 years
Bismarck trolling the French into silly angry moves
>tfw we will never have another president like Lincoln, FDR, Washington, Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Truman, Wilson, Jackson, or Eisenhower
>tfw you realize the last TEN presidents have not come anywhere close to any of these guys
Heard you talkin shit like I wouldn't find out.
Was Mao running camps like Hitler and Stalin or did his people just starve to death?
They literally starved to death. Mao was basically have this unrealistic expectations where everyone has to meet, and everyone is scared to report bad news since he'll punish them severely, so they made shit up.
So Mao, being pleased that his unrealistic expectations were met, made even more unrealistic expectations.
Then everyone died. The end.
By camps, you meant "collectivization" where people have to work for X thing they have no idea about right?
But the real heinous shit is in the Cultural Revolution, not the Great Leap Forward.
