the conception of femininity and masculinity in many cultures in times pased wasnt realy compatible with how we see it today and was mostly tied to religious and occult ideas of how reality works
there was never any ''expression'' in the way you think of it
it always had a religious, magical or political function, or it was just a question of people enyoing themselves some sodomy, other than that it was seen as a abberation and abomination, or just a higly unhigienic way to use someone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's a shit-tier country because there's lots of people and no motivation. If China had some sort of Pearl Harbor type incident happen to them, then everyone else in the world would likely be shitting several pairs of pants at them.
It's because they lie about EVERY fucking statistic (as if 110 average iq) It's because they monitor their citizens, even when they're on holiday in Australia. It's because they are the worst case of aging population the world has It's because the command economy is a really, really bad idea It's because their people are culturally passionless and lack any real creativity It's because throughout all this, they still have an insufferable feeling of superiority that every Australian is all too familiar with.

>Cogito ergo sum Nice mem, but have you ever read the Meditationes where he attempts to prove this? No, you are not /lit/, ergo you are not /phil/.
There are too many idiots on /his/ who think that everyone's opinion (and theirs in particular) is equally valid and deserve to be refuted. Then you must also like modern art where a picture of an asshole is considered is just as artful as the Sistine Chapel.
Please get /lit/ before you dump your shitposts about philosophy on /his/.
>>88723 Unless you're going to accept the premise that philosophy consists of the history of philosophy, that's a fucking disgusting say to go about discussing philosophy. The way people discuss philosophy on /lit/ (shit like 'Marx BTFO literally EVERYBODY before him so you should read all and only Marxist authors from now on' is posted way too often) is filthy. Tbqh if you think philosophy consists of listing the names of people who disagrees with each other about, you're the reason analytics look down... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Since most of /his/ is clueless and ignorant about this region in general, i'd thought a general would be good to discuss the history of the region but of each past and present history of individual states aswell.
Also for future reference, "balkan" does not limit itself strictly to it's physical- geographical boundaries. Countries such as Romania, Moldova and Slovenia are also considered balkan because of common cultural traits in regards to customs, cuisine and such.
We need to start a /his/ approved book list, whether its important books of history or books on history, I'll start with some obvious ones: Epic of Gilgamesh - Unknown Meditations - Marcus Aurelius The Peloponnese War - Thucydides
>>87925 I'd suggest 3 categories. >Historical records from the the period, like the Thucydides >Texts that are easy to read but not properly academic texts so people have somewhere to start if they're interested in a period. >Academic texts for people with more advance interest levels and/or a greater tolerance for dry writing.
>>87747 That's two different questions you've just asked. You're asking (1) if Japan's conduct throughout the war was justifiable given the circumstances and (2) did their behavior merit the bombings. None of their outstanding behavior was justifiable during the war, it was a level of brutality not seen in the region since the mongols. That being said they deserved it in as much as it was the only way (given what we know) that could be forced to surrender without out a land invasion. But the suffering it inflicted...

>>87453 No, armeni. You are once Hurrians, NOT Hittites.
The Hittites (and other Anatolians) became Turks, of course. Well, they were Hellenised earlier, and of course they diversified when their empire (and kingdoms) fell in Late Bronze Age collapse. But yeah they're all Turks now. (Ugarit is Antioch isn't it?)
>ran off all their theoretical scientists because they practiced "Jewish" science >tacked on retarded requirements to weapons development (all Luftwaffe aircraft must be able to divebomb) >let Goering force the various branches of the Wehrmact to fight among themselves for funding/supplies instead of arbitrarily doling it out for no other reason but personal amusement >continued...

>>87260 Reading about the preceding axe murders was pretty chilling.
>>87227 The methods used in the Middle Ages for dividing up the year were not the same as those in use today; also, they changed from country to country. The official year began, in Germany, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal, on Christmas Day; in Venice, upon the 1st March; in England, upon the 25th March; in Rome, at one time upon the 25th January and at another upon the 25th March; in Russia, at the spring...
