Are there any historical equivalents to /r9k/? I don't just mean communities of people who just didn't fit in, but ones that actually rejected fitting in, who would cast aspersions on people who were too "normal". I can't really imagine something like that existing without the internet, but on the other hand, all the internet is is a medium, and that those people must have existed in the past.
How the fuck do I stop seeing and conecting everything to politics?
I wish I knew because I fucking hate people who make everything about politics, but almost everything does have some connection to politics so it's actually a valid way to approach things. The only advice I can maybe give is to realize how small an influence you have on the politics of your country and that you would be better off devoting your brainpower to other things.
If morality is a spook then why should I not have a daughter, lock her in a windowless room then cut off her arms and legs and skull fuck her with my shit-covered dick everyday until she dies?
Was la independencia of latin america a mistake?
What could have been done to keep the central american federation, gran colombia, peruvian-bolivian confederation alive? Were they meant to come apart regardless?
Was Bolívar the greatest hero or the one that fucked up the most? Perhaps both
that stereotype article
anyway, these confederations maybe could survive if they had a major group with the economic power to keep these countries bonded, like happened in the argentine confederation.
Independence was absolutely not a mistake because the Spaniards were already in stage 4 cultural cancer at that point.
A lot of mistakes were made afterwards, notably those stupid wars between the southern cone and the middle bulge, but those conflicts were not inevitable.
Anyone have a link to the theory there was man somewhere in the Asian area who is responsible for almost all, if not a huge part of our DNA.
Not Ghengis Khan, this man was thought to be a fisherman who lived in a port somewhere in Taiwan, if I remember correctly anyway.
I am pretty sure it was a pop-science article but I read it years ago and has been on my mind ever since.
there's one man from the middle east from 4,000 years ago or something that 99.9% every person is related to, there is also a woman from like 6,000 years ago that almost everyone is related too as well
>there's one man from the middle east from 4,000 years ago or something that 99.9% every person is related to, there is also a woman from like 6,000 years ago that almost everyone is related too as well
Is there anything you can give to back this up for me? Forgive my ignorance.
I've also read theories at one stage in human development (during the last ice age) human kind was cut down to one singular cave, somewhere in Russia (I think) and one singular tribe.
I TRIED SO HARD
By the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings of Ethiopia, Elect of God (1892-1975)
Found this in my book. Wondering what it means.
THat's the most retarded thing I have ever heard of.
You should probably kill yourself. May as well read this.
Was he right?

Trotsky was ardent supporter of permanent "world revolution" idea, as in all world governments are to be toppled and replaced with eventual and inevitable Soviet Union of Earth
Stalin saw it as impossible and introduced "socialism in one country"
Will nihilism be our downfall? Are we suited to be so aware of not only ourselves, but also the world around us? Will our spectacular awareness, unique in the fauna of this planet, ultimately be rejected by natural selection?
Are we seriously tempted by immortality, or is that just what we think we want? Will our technology go so far as to turn us into living but apathetic blobs, for centuries immortals, but then suicidal?
>Will nihilism be our downfall?
You don't understand it's ideal. Nihilism is a tool to stress test your ideologies. If it passes the nihilistic test then your ideology is sound.
Why the fuck do you retards think it's all about everything being pointless, use your brain, not just your eyes.
>Do you have some example of ideologies that pass the nihilism test, and why are they passing it?
That's totally subjective to you. You have to search for the answers yourself, giving up is not nihilism, it's a tool to better yourself and pick out which really matters to you.
Could Penal/Punishment battalions work like they did back in World War 2, or when the French had them in the 19th century? Why get rid of soldiers with their silly convictions when they still have use to serving the country? Hitler's infamous 36th Waffen Grenadier Division was made up of poachers with plenty of marksmenship early on, and hell although when in desperation they used bigger criminals they still had no problem brutally defeating the enemy.
Taking criminals and intentionally giving them military training and guns is generally a retarded idea. The Nazis tried it at least once, however, mostly out of desperation....with horrifying results.
Well we needed penal batallions back then because we needed the manpower, whereas in modern war manpower is almost irrelevant. A single pimple faced retard remotely controlling a Predator drone can do more damage than entire batallions from the 1850s.
>We have a organization that relies on strict discipline and Service
>members of this organization have acces too weapons and other danger ins stuff
>lets arm people who can't follow rules and have repeteadly displayed dangerous behavior
>What could possibly wrong
Pedal battalions consisting of soldiers who otherwise would be shot can be useful though.
Redpill me on the famine that occurred in Madras India under British rule in the 1800s.
Is Alexander the Great the greatest European of all time?
He was the first white guy to conquer foreign bitches and exert white male superiority to the world.
He's one of my heroes
The American civil war was merely a repeat of the English Civil War.

What is it about modernity that tries to take agency from everything? From natural phenomena, from god and finally from people themselves.
Why? There obviously is some underlying need in modern society(from the enlightenment forward) for the removal of agency from reality.
What is this need?
Was the soviet union America's Carthage?
The general consensus is that Carthage was a republic much like Rome.
I'd go with Germany, honestly.
>first fight is a clusterfuck caused more by the alliance system than any real ill will between the two countries
>second fight is caused by a rogue revanchist, and is a point of extreme danger
Lincoln my loyalty is to Virginia, to the CONFEDERACY!
Why do people say US embargoed Japan because of China when Japan was beating up on China for a full decade before the embargo was enacted?
because policy takes a while to form.
especially if its in the era before instant global communication, and the US had been struggling with more pressing matters such as the great depression.
No policy doesn't take 10 years to form. But go ahead and present some evidence that shows that US state department/ congress/ members of FDR's cabinet or whatever spent the years 1931 to 1941 thinking about what to do with Japan for being mean to China.
Were Germanics really that backward?
Yes. They were a race of brutes (in)famous for their fighting prowess and savagery. Germanics owe everything to Rome, but they took to Roman culture and technology better than any other race on Earth. There were innumerable cultures exposed to Roman civilization, some even ruled directly by them, yet it was the backward, savage Germans living on the outskirts of the Empire that ended up ruling the earth in the end.
The picture seems to suggest that, in comparison with the Astecs in 400 AD, the Germans were relatively backward, at least in terms of urban infrastructure. Assuming the picture is an accurate depiction of reality.
Is globalization inevitable?
yes, now that the world is as small as it is.
with a trip from New York to London brought from a 1 month journey to a 7 hour flight, the speed of communication and travel is naturally going to make globalization a profitable choice in nearly any situation, while remaining isolated in this day in age is nothing short of self-destructive for a nation as most of the world depends on trade and commerce to keep the economy rolling.
What is the different that makes European more successful than Chinese, Indian or any other peoples ?
Thoughts on him? Benevolent leader or autocratic Tsar?
both, depending on who you are and where you live
literally saved russia in the post-soviet era, but he is also the impersonation of authoritarian iron grip rule and all the fucked up things this means for the citizens and freedom of speech and any kind of political opposition by extension
can anyone recommend good secondary reading on deleuze? not tryna slog through his own books
the real waste of time is grinding through pages upon pages of dense jargon with about a 20 percent comprehension rate and no sense of context or background. a lot of continental philosophy is just plain badly written, so why elevate the primary texts?
Is this the worst era to be lonely and depressed?
I have a question for catholishits. Instead of breaking the first two commandments by talking to statues, (and trying to justify it with semantics about intercession) why don't you just pray to God directly?
After all, if Mary isn't in that statue as you say she isn't, then people in heaven must be able to hear you...
I am an atheist but you know Christians have been venerating saints since the first century.
Every branch of pre-reformation Christianity does this is some form or another, not just Catholics
What would the world look like if he never existed?
There were other members of black hand, I'm sure some Serbian douchebag would've found a way to drag the Habsburgs and Romanovs to war.
Not to mention Russia was looking for any possible excuse.
Anymore like this?

I know a lot of cult members are born into their religion, but why don't a lot of them even to want to go out?
JW is probably the worst among them. They write books so that their members don't REALLY read the Bible. Is this the same for Mormons and Seventh-Day Adventists?
Are there any JW around here? What do you guys think of your belief then and now?
they read the bible, there is just a very strict way that they can interpret it. how is this radically different than how you will be branded a heretic if you are openly against the trinity?
>its another angry proddy infighting thread
why can't you all just get along?
