Share some very interesting documentaries about ancient human civilizations.
Preferably, 2000 bc - 100 bc.
Why were the dacians so autistic /his/? They literally in the best position not to get assraped by Rome and they blew it. They annoyed Rome so hard that Rome built one of the longest ancient bridges over the Danube just to smack dacian ass.
Why /his/? Why do I have to be stuck speaking a latinshit language instead of the beautiful tongue that can now only be recovered in bits and pieces reconstructed from place names and modern romanian words?
Why didn't those 2 fags become commonwealth again after Great War?
If not for Poland, they wouldn't exist today.
After two failed Polish rebellions, which the polonised Lithuanian nobility naturally took part in, the newly starting national awakening of Lithuanians was based on specifically on the peasants and (peasant) lithuanian culture. Deliberate effort was made to take stance against slavic culture and influences which included the Polish speaking Lithuanian (as in blood not in name only) aristocracy. And during the first years of the 20th century it was this nationalistic Lithuania which came out on top and realised the...

Why is the 40 hour work week still a thing? Don't tell me you actually enjoy working 40 hours a week, because you don't
This is a crazy thing that never gets talked about. People say "work hard, you'll make it" but that's a total lie. A friend of mine made 100k in one year installing air conditioners then his boss fired him cuz he didn't want to write out more large checks
He now makes 30k as a high school football coach

Was the DDR the height of culture?
>"Versailles treaty was unfairly harsh"
>meanwhile people forget the Brest-Litovsk treaty that the Germans imposed on Russia that humiliated Russians greatly just so they can impose their imperialistic rule on Eastern Europe
Versailles treaty wasn't harsh enough, if you ask me
What they hell happened? They used to be the highlight of my time here. All they did was say a bunch of autistic Turk stuff and it made me smile. It was the closest thing we had to a mascot. Where are our precious turkposters? Pls mehmet I miss you
How inevitable was the first world war?
is it possible for people to follow a proper moral code without religion or will it always lead to moral relativism and the decay of civilised society?
moral relativism is not the opposite of moral realism. moral realism is not necessary for society to exist. moral code exists already without religion in animistic societies and in first world secular societies. everything you're implying is fucking wrong.
religion is moral relativist
even if the entire country had the same religion some fucknugget would just make up a different sect and say your morality is wrong (and that god hates you).
>some fucknugget would just make up a different sect and say your morality is wrong
and get stoned to death for promoting heresy.
Who killed Jesus, the Jews or the Romans?
>And Pilate seeing that he prevailed nothing, but that rather a tumult was made; taking water washed his hands before the people, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just man; look you to it. And the whole people answering, said: His blood be upon us and our children.

Why did North Africa decline so much? Was it climate change?
Are the Han Chinese the only ethnic group to naturally speak multiple unintelligible languages?
"ethnic group" is a social construct and doesn't have a rigid definition. You could easily call Slavs an ethnic group who speaks multiple unintelligible languages.
Furthermore, the Han Chinese are called that because of they descended from the ancient Han dynasty and therefore their languages have a common ancestor in the same way the romance languages are derivatives of vulgar latin.

I keep hearing all this stuff about the almighty and oh-so machiavellian Prussians. But I can't find any real good documentaries, podcasts, etc. on them.
Sure, you're gonna say 'why not written history'
Well. I Have 8 hours/ day at work that I get to listen to podcasts and documentaries and audiobooks.
So please /his/; enlighten me on prussia. What made them so great? How did they conquer so much?
I'm mostly interested in what was the Prussian philosophy, how they gained so much power, and things along those lines.
please folks, I love machiavellianism and pragmatism, and it would appear that these guys are the kings of all of that.
I know you guys know information!
you're holding back on me
Outside of written history you won't find much. There are audiobooks of On War (Carl von Clausewitz). Carl was a Prussian and his writings are both an interesting look into the period as well as a an excellent text for anyone wanting to understand military theory - even today it's on the reading list for any academy.
Also anything you can find on Alte Fritz would be helpful. He's sorta the poster boy for enlightened absolutism.
>the best civilizations are ones that enforce far-right views, patriarchy, strong rule of law, a single culture and religion, and a rejection of outsiders and opposing peoples/ideas
a million+ literally just walked into Europe totally unmolested in the past year or so
they were greeted with welfare
would a million Europeans be able to march into saudi Arabia? How would they be treated, assuming they weren't machine gunned at the border?
ask yourself which civilization is really "on top" in this context
German/Austrian Jews were probably the single-best assimilated crop of Jews in the entirety of Europe leading up the second world war, with thousands having converted to christianity, subscribed to reform (meme) judaism, married non-jewish spouses, traded in yiddish entirely for German, served in huge numbers for the Kaiser during the first world war..
..so why the FUCK would Hitler decide that, of all the jews in Europe to shit on, to focus on them at any point?
Jews were a minority in Europe
People like to bully minorities
Jews owned a large share of Europe's wealth
People like to bully those in power
Hitler was a rude bully and was just /unkind/ in general, anon. You can't really explain why he was.
>Han or Haan [ha̠n] is a concept in Korean culture attributed as a unique Korean cultural trait which has resulted from Korea's frequent exposure to invasions by overwhelming foreign powers. Han denotes a collective feeling of oppression and isolation in the face of insurmountable odds (the overcoming of which is beyond the nation's capabilities on its own). It connotes aspects of lament and unavenged injustice.
>The minjung theologian Suh Nam-dong describes han as a "feeling of unresolved resentment against injustices suffered, a sense of helplessness because of the overwhelming odds against one, a feeling of acute pain in one's guts and bowels, making the whole body writhe and squirm, and an obstinate urge to take revenge and to right the wrong—all these combined."
>In some occasions, anthropologists have recognized han as a culture-specific medical condition whose symptoms include dyspnea, heart palpitation, and dizziness.
This made me a little sad. Korea has historically been a stomping ground for all sorts of external powers. To see a collective sense of dread and resentment built up and manifested into a cultural component of Korean culture itself is fascinating.
What does /his/ think of Noam "the death toll in Cambodia have been inflated by a factor of a thousand" Chomsky?
I remember watching some debate he had with Buckley I think and he was asked why people would work hard labor without financial renumeration in his anarcho syndicalist utopia and he went on about how much he enjoys the hard labor that comes with planting shrubs.
Nigger is out of touch.
>We should burn down anything that isn't a city, since only cities produce anything useful.
Is she /ourgirl/? I loved her analysis of how Japan industrialized, and why Pittsburgh and Detroit broke down ( monoculture of steel and cars, as opposed to Japanese cities, which produced a mix of everything)
Best and cutest female economist who happens to also be heterodox reporting in.
How did people from Europe choose what country to where going to emigrate too in the 18th and 19th centuries?
language and "rushes" (gold rush, agriculture, construction jobs, etc)
There were a lot of shady deals too like ships changing destination in the middle of the ocean, specially in the mid 19th century. Like you shipped to Havana and ended in Buenos Aires

There will never be as much opportunity as there was back then lol
What's the point of having 1,000 of these trillion dollar weapons when the US could have just used a few bombers to nuke the USSR cities? It would have been much more effective.
>compromising multi-layer AAA and fighter/interceptor core is easy for a big unresponsive aircraft
Because planes are limited in what they can carry, how far they can go, how fast they can get there and are easier to destroy before they deliver their payload making them a poor deterrent against a foe who has the capacity to launch an overwhelming number of ICBMs.
Why Eastern Galicia didn't become ethnically Polish?
It was annexed by Poland in 14th century, gone to Austria after the Partitions and became the main center of Ukrainian nationalism in 20th century.
Were 4 centuries not enough for assimilation of all local people?
But nobles were polonized quite successfully. Didn’t polonized nobles try to polonize their serfs? How Polish and polonized nobles in different territories (core Poland, Lithuania, Galicia and other Ruthenian lands) saw their serfs, as fellow Poles or as Spartans saw helots?
is there anything ethically wrong with starting a movement to unify the world under one school of thought and language and country, stopping all education, distributing the rest of resources equally, and sterilizing everyone? that way humanity can go extinct with dignity.
