So what happens in 30 years, when EU, Russia and China are burdened with swarms of old folks and very few taxpayers? I guess all mentioned economies fail, public services go to level of today's Etrirea, military capabilities are eroded beyond funny and we have three decedes of world economic depression due to three major world markets collapsing.
China is going full damage control about this now, but it is pretty much a lost cause.
It will probably open up the possibility of a few emerging markets to rise in importance even more, Brazil, India and the asian tigers come to mind.
But a demographic crisis is certain.
Why has this been allowed?
I'm looking at you, Fritz.
Ruse devised by the German General Staff. They weren't even trying to hide it ffs.
Let's talk about Eastern Africa. We know about the Axum Empire, but what other civilizations arose here?
The legite place where blacks actually built a worthwhile empire(or empires) and of which no black SJW moron knows about because they don't know shit about shit.
Who was the best president?
And why was it George Washington?
>implying pic related is not the best president ever
ITT: The best bromances in History.
I'll start: Agrippa and Augustus.
ITT: Post a picture of your local Cathedral. Yes, denomination matters.
Luckily, living near Jerusalem, I have the Holy Sepulcher as mine. It's got 6 different denominations - Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox, Coptic, Ethiopian Orthodox, and Syriacs. They've brought all their unique art, chanting and architecture to their various parts of the Church.
How far into Europe could the Mongols have gone if Ögedei hadn't died?
Hey. Human here. You have 10 seconds to philosophically prove that you're all real humans, and not just some fabrications that just really, really seem human.

What do you know about Baltic states and their history(Latvia, Lithuania aka brother states ^^). The things you like about them, things you hate. Historical bits etc.
Basically they were Romuva for ages, then the Polish king asked some Christian orders to crusade them and Prussia was invented, as was the Livonian order which as far as I know was the genesis of Latvia - which is also like half protestant because of Sweden.
Lithuania came to be ruled by the king of Poland as the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth. But at that point the Lithuanians conquered so many Slavs that the Grand Duchy of Lithuania was basically a proto-Belarus.
Then the Russians ruined everything.
To add to that, Lithuania rose mainly due to its good army and ability to incorporate Ruthenian lands. It wasn't even conquest per se since most people happily accepted pagan Lithuanians over Mongol cunts, plus being pagan and less advanced culturally, a lot of them quickly assimilated into Ruthenian framework.
However, it still wasn't just Ruthenian country because Lithuanians also brought a good state centralization framework with themselves. In other words, it was basically symbiosis.
So, was it really all that bad? Or does /his/ just have a hate boner for all things Muslim?
/his/ hates them because they were a tolerant and progressive Empire
>from before the Renaissance... because we're already too familiar with the contemporary western tradition that was formalized around that time
>try to avoid church music... because it was often detached from popular conventions
>try to avoid purely imaginary reconstructions... because of obvious reasons
The Epic Of Gilgamesh In Sumerian
Fine, I'll play your game
>try to avoid purely imaginary reconstructions
What do you class as an "imaginary reconstruction"? Isn't that performance of Gilgamesh an imaginary reconstruction without the sheet music?
What is the consensus on this guy?
There is no consensus on him. Academically he was an important revolutionary figure and became a folk hero among the underprivileged groups of South America.
>inb4 strawman and cherry picking that he hated gays and black people based on 100% fake quotes, out of context statements and his opinion as a young white in Argentina.
>he was an important revolutionary figure
Nah, he was shit. Piggybacked Fidel in the Cuban revolution, did fuck all in Africa and failed even harder in Bolivia.
>became a folk hero
The folk hero status was actually created by Fidel and turned him into a martyr, then American leftists turned him into a pop icon.
Generally speaking though he did basically nothing worth noting and only seemed to be permanently asspained about everything.
This has been my desktop background for about 2 years now and I think it's time for a change. Please post some historical artwork or photos that would look nice as a desktop background. Thank you.
