Do heroes like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, etc. use their powers in a morally righteous way?
If not, how would you use their powers?
They're tyrannical ideologues and they refuse to use lethal force in numerous situations it would make things much easier.
I would also be a tyrannical ideologue, but I'd be upfront about it.
At what point in history did piracy impede trade/travel over the ocean the most? Sea peoples? Barbary pirates? Caribbean pirates? Wako Pirates? Hellenic Pirates? Vikings?
Were there any connections between Hellenic culture and the Hinduism as there were between Buddhism and Hellenic culture?
How did the Greeks govern all of this? It wasn't as if they had any experience governing humongous Empires before, and with a hostile foreign populace? The Romans had the system of governors and praetors and quaestors etc etc to keep the roads paved and free of bandits, to secure the grain supplies, the subdue rebellions, etc, but how did the Greeks pull it off? Did they just copy the Persian satrap system?
Talk to me about giants, /his/. Like ghosts, vampires, and (sort of) dragons, they're a feature of pretty much every culture's mytho-historical heritage. Is it all just due to random occurrences of gigantism in normal humans? Is there any chance at all something more was going on?

Do you even know what the definition of an empire is, you baiting memefuck?
to have developed a comprehensive, systematic framework of thought?
Were the druzhina a bunch of norse varangian rejects or were there a bunch of slavs in there aswell?
Why does God been portrayed as a White Man instead of a White Woman, A Black Girl Or a Black Man ?
What can /his/ tell me about the Finno-Korean Hyperwar?
/pol/ will tell you the Finnish were white in a case of severe we-wuzism, but both were actually Mongoloid. They will try to explain away Finnish Mongoloid genes as rape babies, but the Finnish were Mongoloid all along. What happened was the Finnish empire was pushed back by the white exodus when Yakub's white devils were expelled to Europe, and they retreated to Finland. This is why only only find the Mongoloid gene in Finland.
can someone explain this meme and its origins to me?
>I would rather learn Ænglisc than Latin.
Pretty interesting. Film was screened to the Allied leaders only days after the invasion and then lost in the archives after being miscatalogued.
I've always wondered if film of the bloodier sections of beach ever existed, but hidden for obvious reasons.
In what way does daoism condemn morally wrong actions? If it exalts spontaneity, being an asshole is part of my nature and i'm still part of the Dao why shouldn't i just rape babies or whatever?
Because daoism also promotes self control and abstinence as ways to master the self, and seeing how the self fits into the greater whole. You could be an asshole and a daoist or you could be a saint and a daoist. Daoism is just a lens to view the world through.
I have already studied languages such as Latin in the past at school with suggested textbooks, etc..
How would you guys recommend I learn German just as a hobby on the side? I live in Australia so access to German speakers for practice is rather limited.
Was he right ?
I found that Mayans lasted as a civilization well in the 17th century(the last city fell around 1697)
Since thats well over 100 years since their contact with the Spanish; did the Mayans ever use muskets and metal bladed swords that they may have picked up/traded from the Spanish? In the same way as the Native Americas in North America?
Doesn't look like it.
>The Spanish described the weapons of war of the Petén Maya as bows and arrows, fire-sharpened poles, flint-headed spears and two-handed swords known as hadzab that were crafted from strong wood with the blade fashioned from inset obsidian; these were similar to the Aztec macuahuitl.

>yfw you realized civilization itself is a meme because agriculture is inherently unstable due to soil nutrient depletion and flawed human nature that leads to unsustainable exponential population growth and resource consumption
...but dude, your statement is inaccurate. Our primary forms of modern agriculture and the agricultural systems that are excessively extractive are unsustainable but agriculture/horticulture/para-culture/intensive tending in and of itself can be both sustainable and regenerative.
Why did the USA not annex the entirety of Mexico?
El famoso peaceful Germany with its "pre-emptive strikes"...
>Germany declares war on France and Russia
It's France and Russia's fault for mobilizing.
>France and Britain declare war on Germany when Germany mobilizes 100+ divisions and invades Poland
REEEEEEE Germany dindu nuffin France and Britain declared war on it.
Was it inevitable that Mexico would lose its North American territory to the US? Could the Texan Revolution and Mexican-American War have been avoided?
Mexico has chronically bad leadership. If they had competent generals they could've won that war.
But with Mexican leadership as it was, they were doomed. Honestly it's like a miracle that they still have 2 million sq km of land instead of totally collapsing like the central american confederacy.
When I see the media being so biased today, why should I care about History when social science and humanities departments are pretty much in cahoots with each other?
Is it all just social posturing bullshit? "Insights" from history usually just turn out to be as BS as "wisdom".
Is civilian/pleb/peasant/commoner weapons ownership of military grade weaponry (whatever the historical period) a recent or old development along history? How at risk was an invading army in the ancient or medieval era to be under the subject of guerrila action by the civilians in the area?
Historically, households always had a sword or some sort of sharp choppystabby that could pass as one.
More often than not soldiers bought their own gear which they passed it down to their sons. Farmers and workers used or modified their tools to fight.
What constitutes a military weapon is a modern invention, anyone could be armed except in specific contexts.
Europe's Last Pagans
Pic related is the Mari people belonging to the Uralic group
How close is this to other practices that were practiced in Europe. They apparently even sacrifice things in cauldrons, which is probably where the witch(shaman) with cauldron sterotyoe comes from.
Let's stop this meme. The Mari people are West of the Ural mountains suggesting a cultural continuity with the rest of Europe. Although they may have not shared similar pantheon
eons thier practices must be similar to some extent.
Hungarians are Uralic yet seem pretty European visually and culturally
Aren't materialists really arguing that the physical world is alive?
The "physical world" is not alive. Specific pieces of the physical world are organized and operate in a way we arbitrarily call life. The matter itself is not alive, the system is, and only for specific durations and in specific contexts.
Let me pose you this question.
If homesexuality and bisexuality is in your genes, then can't pederasty not be considered the same?
>study great men that have left their mark on history
>you'll die in obscurity and soon be forgotten.
This is the worst feel.
Just write some obscure esoteric mystical shit.
That's way cooler.
It doesn't have to be that way. You've seen the blueprints for greatness, all you have to do is figure out how to implement them into your life. You may not be able to conquer the world, but you can probably manage to make enough of a difference to be noted if you really try.
Was Atlantis real? Where was it located?
Was there once a city above water which sunk and we simply do not know it's location?
>Still a virgin
>Doesn't have a girlfriend

So he was the first member of 4chan ?
What the fuck was his problem?
Well... shit. Looks like Plato wasn't just fibbing.
