>The Treaty of Verseilie was too harsh on Germany
When will this meme end? We were much harder on them after WWII and that time they actually stayed down
Because most turds never even bother to read about what the treaty was about and what points were actually enforced from it.
For example, most unironically believe Danzig was simply given to Poland, when in fact it was made a separate state.
Not only that but the Nazis won the 1933 elections there, so in 1939 they were technically in charge of Danzig already.
Also, the initial reparations weren't enforced and were eventually forgotten.
Is Anglicanism leaning more towards Catholicism or Protestantism? They seem to hold some Catholic traditions and they didn't start the same as did many Protestant churches. It was just king Henry VIII wanting to get a divorce.

Good thread anon but I'll have to stop you there as we're running short on time.
What was Stalin's master plan? Tell me about Tehran, about Yalta. WHAT DID HE WANT?
I know the Romans were influenced by the Greeks hugely and I was wondering if the Greeks and Romans had pretty much the same or similar armor and weaponry.
To me, it would look like the common Greek and Roman soldier were equal foes in military technology even before Rome's conquest of it.
Look, the panoplia and lorica hamata are different armors, their shields have different shapes.
Beyond the individual soldier and his equipment, formations, deployment, training, recruitment, garrisons, army hierarchies, were all different processes.
Even the martial culture is different, fighting for the institution called polis and fighting for the institution called professional army aren't the same thing.
They look similar because they are people living in the ancient world.
Can anyone explain to me what's so impressive about killing unarmed people? And why when Mongols were doing the same they were subhuman savages but as soon as it comes to vikings then suddenly ''farmers were actually armed because muh pitchforks, it totally counts as legit battle to kill a child from a shithole village''? Why people have such a big need to glorify bandits? It's because they are Scandinavian? I bet if vikings were arabs or blacks or Slavs you all would call them savages.
Glorification of vikings isn't as common as you're pretending it is.
The vikings in The Last Kingdom were depicted pretty similarly to the Mongols in Marco Polo, if anything the depiction of Mongols was more sympathetic.
Can you recommend some historical fictional?
I'm looking for fiction set in either Ancient Near East, Ancient Greece, or Ancient Rome and are accurate to history.
I've not read anything stellar, but I can give views on two books that fit your description,
>Gates of Fire
by Steven Pressfield
It's the story about a helot who follows his master into the fightings of Thermopylae. It's very glorifying of Spartan culture but a damn fine adventure book.
>Empire of Ashes
by Nicolas Nicastro
Tells the story of a follower of Alexander. This book depicts Alexander's main...

Is traditionalism dead? Is there even a point in fighting social decay?
I saw a post on The Phora about this and how basically traditionalists are wrong and fascists are right because history is "cyclical" or whatever. Basically there was no fall from grace, so there is nothing really to "go back" to. Cultures die and new things rise up out of their ashes.

yfw all existence, as you know it, including your current sense of past. Is just a momentary blip of random chance. The very nano second, right now, is all that ever exists for all of us. We spent our only moment of existence, reading a sentence about this very topic, on 4chan.
>Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
>And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.
What did He mean by this?
>it's illegal to kill another person
>it's legal to kill another person in self defense
Do you see a contradiction? Because I don't. The first is a generic rule, the second is an exemption to the rule.
Ancient Chinese history and its Ancient Writings is said to date back to events of the Great Flood. Several references by Confucius has pointed out that the very first Chinese race indeed worship the "Creator" which is called "ShangDi", "上帝".
1) I would like to clarify if they worship the similar God Almighty just like the Jews and Christians? Because I believe God does not approach only to Adam and Eve's lineage but to other nations and its people as well.
2) Is there any historical evidence in the bible that has stated the existence of other races like Indian, Chinese, Russian apart from the Jews and the other notable races stated in the Old Testament?
Since the Bible from the Old Testament only records the events of only the Jews, its ancestors and the other great kingdoms and empires in Book of Daniel I believe. I believe God could've also approach to his Children from all parts of the earth as well.
Many parallels of spirituality, just with the words Hebrew labeling it. Most of the Bible does mention Hebrews in OT, but the other teachings Judaism had also reflected Egypt and other religions, just mostly exclusively the story of the Hebrews as all for most parts of OT
Ancestors are angels.
Kek, any source for that image? How old is that character?

What relevance does this have?

What was the longest continual war? I know the Hundred Years War, despite the name, wasn't continuous and saw years of non-action in between the conflict flaring up again. Then there's stuff like the 70 and 30 years war.
Which war saw continuous fighting for its entire length?
Did you know that, during the final years of the Eastern Roman Empire and before the fall of Constantinople to the Turks, Greek polytheism was partially revived in the Pelopponese by the Byzantine scholar Pletho Gemistus?
Apparently, him and his students rejected the Christian God for being a weak and fumbling deity that had demonstrably failed to assist the ERE in its tribulations, and as such, turned to the 'strong' gods of Antiquity to assist them. Interestingly enough, it seems a number of farmers and rural residents in Mystras - where Plethon's academy...

I tried reading the presocratics with a book recommended here made by Kirk and Raven. That book is a shithouse borefest of HISTORY of the presocratics, not a really entertaining book.
What I want is not history, just pure philosophy, the works of the presocratics, which book do you guys recommend me?
The problem is that the presocratics all come through the filter of Aristotle. Barnes has a good book on the Presocratics, but you need to have a bit of a historical background as well. Sorry mate.
It seems to me that whenever we learn about Ancient Greece in our schooling institutions, the teachers only talk about Sparta and Greece.
Why is that? Why can't we talk about the other citystates? Were they not that important to history on a global level? Did they not contribute to society as much as Athens and Sparta did?
I'm just, genuinely curious as to why the lot of them aren't talked about.
There was more known about them, They had writing, a more developed society and stuff. A lot of what we know about other ancient people.Even those around before the Greeks often come from Greek sources.
