Post historical event's theme
I know this song is from a movie about a different event, but in my head I've always associated it with the Roman conquest and massacres in Judea. The "slavery" in this case is more of a metaphorical thing than literal slavery.
> Hello, dear anon. I want to kill your children. Can you tell me where I can find them?
> Of course, I can! I believe in categorical imperative, after all.
anon has a point OP, I don't know what CatImp is exactly, I only know Kant made it, but if it's moral to prevent harm then it would be necessary to not answer questions when such questions would lead to harm or whatever
I'm badly articulated but you get the point
>anything but virtue ethics
Well there's your problem.
Is there such thing as a high paying job to do with history? I absolutely love the subject but I also want to make at least over 80k a year because I want to live the good life aka: Holidays, big house etc.
>inb4 money isnt everything
Can somebody explain the importance and history in a nutshell?
> your opinion of who are the real Bad Guys, or is it simply shades of grey?
Also, what would be a President Trump or a President Clinton's aims for American involvement?
Thanks y'all in advance
>Can't invade British Isles
>"Hey guise. Let's sail across the Channel on river barges after we take out the RAF"
>Bomb civillian targets
>Get outproduced in planes by Britain
>Get rump-rustled when Britain not only wins, but starts carpet-bombing in retaliation
>"ITS DA JOOS"
>Attempt to invade USSR immediately afterwards
>Declare war on the USA months later

Everything he did was retarded, he just got ridiculously lucky at the start.
hot bard pics?
>bards can be /his/ too
Only if they look like this <---
does this mean perestroika was to slow down the economic growth and better the life of the soviet people?
Gorbachev's "perestroika" (rebuilding) had several directions, the most prominent being
Glasnost -- politcal goal to open up secrecy and allow more free press
Uskoreniye (acceleration) -- giving a boost to stagnating economy
What Gorbachev PLANNED to do and what he ended up with are quite obviously different things.
Like take for example his anti-alcohol campaign. He personally considered alcoholism a shame on his nation. What it did is wrecked state budget ever further (alcohol production is frighteningly huge contributor to the budget of Russia). His dry law did saved million of lives in several years it was active though via reduction of alcohol related car accidents and crimes, less defective babies.

This is Shannon Green... Wisest man and the best scientist ever, probably.
Here are some of his recent quotes:
"A bunch of words is your intelligence? Let's see it!"
"Gov's reality has a nice, serene level of excitement."
"I'm sure if I needed to be a rocket scientist in my life, I would be able to conquer that - but have never had the need."
"I can be anything!"
What do you think of this man? Is he right? Is he as smart as others claim him to be?
If you can't feel, see, hear, taste or smell something - does it exist?
>he's a materialist with a mechanistic view of nature
>he doesn't realise that this is the spirit world and all living beings are spirits
>he has no naturalist mechanistic explanation as to why his mechanical brain has subjective experiences
What sort of strategy to they teach at military colleges? Are they given accounts of ancient conquerors as well as modern tactics and the like? What might be in an officers course reading list?
They of course continue to study Sun Tzu, because the man LITERALLY wrote the book on this whole affair. I imagine they might also read on Julius Caesar, George Washington, perhaps William the Conqueror and Jeanne D'Arc. Although their strategies are ancient and outdated, they can provide analogues for newer ones and be examples of innovation, outside-the-box thinking and creativity. They may also study their nation's military failures to learn what does NOT work.
This thread is for discussion of the West's common Roman heritage and how to spread knowledge of it to the hoi polloi other than "reform the entire educational system and restore classical history to its rightful place in the curriculum." No shit-flinging about who is "the true heir of Rome" or modern politics, please. Patton is always related to Rome, even in Rule 63 anime form.
It shows itself in the mission statement of the West.
'We shall raise ourselves on the backs of the barbarians, but we shall drag them upwards with us'
This has been Western civilization's goal for centuries.
Would it ever be possible for a linguist to predict how a language will be spoken in the future, say, 200 or 500 years from now?
My last name is Karle(I was born in Germany, Grew up in GB, and now am doing college and academics in America)
I have wondered for a while if my name has any significance
My first thought was the Karling dynasty of Charlemagne
I want too know what you think as I recently started thinking about this
>ancient civilizations build these giant monuments that last a thousand years
>America borrows a statue from France
>we couldn't even bother finishing Rushmore or Crazy Horse
What happened to monument building?
Why were the Vikings such vile people?
Because they had a financial incentive to be.
Over time, all groups of humans will tend towards sociopathic self interest.
Morality only exists at the individual level, societies will act purely in their own self interest.
Also, shit thread, OP.
I consider this a social science question which is why I'm not asking /sci/.
Can someone explain these statistics to me? Why is 'cock' preferred in these states? Obviously there is not specific cultural region where one group prefers one term over the other. It doesn't seem to be based on race either considering we have Utah and Washington on there. So can anyone provide me an answer to why these seemingly random states prefer the word 'cock' over dick?
Let's hear your arguments.
What did the Catholics allow transatlantic slavery in countries that they were that majority in? The French and the Spanish had lotsa slaves/colonies in the new world. I thought that the point of Jesus was that all people were created equal, as opposed to the Jewish God who favored a specific group of people over everyone else.
Why aren't you a Mormon, /his/?
You don't have to be.
Mormons have missionaries all over the world.
Why aren't a member of Nation of Islam yet, /his/?
Did Saxon, Irish and Frankish villagers in viking age have any access to weapons?
can we all agree that "continental philosophy" is just arationial mystical storytelling ?
20th century Anglo "philosophy" is basically just dogmatic liberalism. It's a discourse and analize of the Enlightenment but it never goes bexonf that. On the other hand Europe has constantly questioned the whig Enlightenment's premises and denounced it's totalitarianism (cf Adorno) or narrow mindedness (cf Evola).
It's like the difference between the philosophy of religion and teology except God is replaced with values of the Enlightenement.
how legit is this book? as in is it factual or is some of the stuff made up?
Why aren't you a Pentecostal, /his/?
Byzantine Empire. More like a Fucking Joke they were a punching bag who achieved nothing of value.
How much social mobility was possible in medieval Europe?
Absolutely incorrect, Rus before the Mongol Conquest was one of the best areas in medieval Europe. Novgorod in particular had a literacy rate that was only typical in monasteries during that period.
What if the Byzantine empire never fell?
How would it be today?
