Why a FIVE year plan tho? Why not four or six? Please tell me it's not because of the star having five beams? That's too retarded even for the communist subhumans.
Was Jesus married, /his/?
How thin is the line between socialism and fascism?
Is there anything that may seriosly challenge the OOA theory?
No, but I think the left's fears about any notion of racial difference prevents many people from discussing Neanderthal/Denisovan admixture, or lack thereof. I understand that hominids in general originated in Africa also, but you get my point...
How can an observer stop observing?
Explain this to me - why scale the walls with ladders instead of breaking the walls with pickaxes? It's just stone, after all. Should be time-consuming, but possible, no?
Why do some beliefs/philosophies/religions ring true for some people and flagrantly false for others?
For example, I remember rejecting Christianity (and all Abrahamic religions, for that matter) when I was around 13.
Fedora-memeing aside, the reason I did so was because it sounded ridiculous to me. I couldn't fool myself into partaking in the religion much like a very heterosexual man cannot fool himself into enjoying gay sex. We weren't compatible, simple as.
However, when I encountered eastern philosophical traditions and especially the more...

Is he right /his/?
How come guys who were only one inch taller than Saxons on average, who attacked undefended monasteries and villages and who converted to christianity (which DID NOT immediately made them stop raiding, there were christian vikings who still were into piracy) are shilled as fierce, large warriors who serve their bloodhtirsty gods (which ironically is christian monk propaganda)?
>It's another "vikings weren't that great" episode
Why don't you go start a thread on who the real successor of the Roman empire is next, OP?
I don't get it. According to his ideal German wouldn't he be considered untermensch save for his blue eyes?
Why wasn't pasta more popular throughout Europe in the middle ages/Renascence? Surely other countries had plenty of contact with Italy and would like to use their grains for something other than bread.
How exactly is a ragtag group of drunkard Indians with a smaller population than the U.S. Army had soldiers going to win a war let alone get out of the fucking Dakotas? Little Big Horn was a fucking fluke.
Should prostitution be seen as something shameful whether your a hooker yourself or use their services?
What was the first war when camouflage became very relevant in combat?
What really happened on the "concentration camps"? I have always found strange the idea of wasting resources on killing jews, black people, political opponents... when you're at war. I feel more reasonable the argument that they died of famine and diseases like typhus.
Gathering up your most productive citizens is already a waste, IMO, but priorities shift when hating them is the centerpiece of your ideology. I guess Nazis were a bit misguided!
But anyhoo, even at death camps they would sort them into those who could do useful forced labor before being killed and those who would be killed right away.
As far as im aware most of the jews that got gassed were bums living in poor conditions. Not every jew gets to be a merchant or a banker. The richer ones that had half a brain left Germany ages ago. It was mainly the poor jews that were you know, too poor to move that got rounded up.
if a tribe that has never been conquered, signed a treaty or sould their land are they the rightfull owner of the land?
would/could a private company buy the sentinel islands or an isolated part of the amazons and force the natives away in a libertarian society? or would it violate the NAP
anarchism is the all encompassing ideology of human interaction
arguementum ad baculum is what dictates History (to distinguish its general use to the capitalised version to which E H Carr makes reference in his book - What Is History?)
Why is it that there are no records of exclusive homosexuality prior to the modern period?
I.2.20 (Bar/Brothel of Innulus and Papilio); 3932: Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!
How are thalassocracies so disproportionately powerful to their size?
The Dutch as a colonial empire isnt powerful really.
Bits of it were stolen by the Brits and natives were often confident in pushing it around. The Chinese fucked them up twice for example, and one of those efforts was led by a pirate lord.

Help my argument please.
What is the value of sexual self control?
What is there to lose from promiscuity?
Why should teenagers not have sex with anonymous adults?
What is your opinion on the Spartans?
They were interesting people, but ultimately a plague on mankind, at least for the people living around them and in the same time period as them.
And, of course, they got raped the second other Greek states started to also have professional militaries.
Still, they were one of the first examples of a republic anywhere in history, and pretty good at the whole fighting thing.
The USA was supposed to span the entire western hemisphere. What went wrong?
Pick a country, past or present, and a philosopher who characterizes that country's values and philosophy. Obvious example would be Marx and the USSR.
>see a philosophy topic on another board
>people say Daniel Dennett isn't a philosopher
He went to Harvard and is famous, so why is he seen as an idiotic joke? Why is Peter Singer seen as a joke when he has about 4 or 5 of the world's best universities on his CV?
Just what the hell does a "proper philosopher" do, and why is their work as inconsequential as the meme philosophers? Bear in mind that I'm the Munchhausen trilemma poster.

What are some of the worst offenses of modern views being projected onto historical events?
Seeing the Hundred Years War described as a conflict between France and England always rustles my jimmies.
pic not too related
Reminder that Brazil should have been THIS
Trusting portuguese, not even once
Nah, it should have been THIS.
Reinhard is a mix of Megas Alexandros, Friedrich der Große and Napoopan.
Question is, was Kircheis based on some historical figure?
He was also a great general and even statesman material though.
Jesus so even >muh Kircheis is a mix of that guy and the fag that got BTFO for being friends with Friedrich.
But more importantly, was he so important that his death made everyone go >if only (name) was here for every single porblem?
Did pre-modern (ie Medieval & Classical Era) people get depressed?
How did they try to cure it?

War and rape.
Either killing themselves or keeping it hidden from everyone else.
What are some interesting things you know about this place and its history? Outside of landing Brazil and more recently, dudeweedlmao, it doesn't get much mainstream attention.

we also had a nice socialist revolution in 1974
