In 1948 when they decided to created the jewish state israel. Why was it considered imperative that there was a Jewish state on their historic homeland in 1948?
Why not an assyrian state on their historic homeland? Or a cossack state on their ancestral homeland? or a basque state on their historic homeland? Why does a tribe deserve their own country based on borders that existed 3000 years ago?
What is the bedrock of western civilization?
What is the rest of /his/ opinion on the no real presence of a "good and evil" during the First World War that honestly makes it such an interesting period. What's also slightly annoying is that many history classes at the high school level fail to outline this unique situation and protray the War as Germans = bad America/Britain = good
I get triggered hard by teachers who told this one sided account of World War One back in school.
Honestly though its fair too see the krauts as the bad guys in ww1, with their chimp outs in 1914, it is just overshadowed by their actions in ww2, so comparatively we say they wernt the bad guys in ww1
I think it all comes down to whether the 'Rape of Belgium' was worse than everything that the entente did.
Thats the first thing that comes to mind when describing bad things Germany did in ww1.

Wikipedia says Thermopylae was the most famous and most iconic battle in Western history. Is it telling the truth?
Maybe not the best known but the legend of thermopylae ticks all the boxes for an iconic battle:
>Invading hordes countered by superior individual skill, discipline, coordination and tactics.
>Defensive battle protecting the homeland.
What caused the Civil War, /his/?
>He is the last sane intellectual and historical observer?
See, this is the thing about Chomsky. The problem is there's only one of him, because he's the last one, so his opinions get taken in the context of him being solitary and alone. If he wasn't the last one, if there were more people like him, there would be lots of discourse and diversity of opinion.
Why are poles so butthurt about losing territories in which they were a relatively small minority and the native population didnt even want them there, even when they were compensated with equally big ethnically polish territories after WW2?
>Can't do anything more than complain about massive butthurt

Was the Rape on Nanking as horrific as some the stories claim? There is something strange about the whole thing.
The Rape of Nanking seems horrific because it's our (Western society's) closest and most vivid encounter with pre-industrial pre-colonial warfare. It only seems horrific today because it was the last battle of its kind to be waged in Asia before they were infected with our Republican and Humanitarian ideals.
In reality, it was no worse than what you would have seen when Thracian mercenaries sacked a town for their Athenian employers, or what Roman soldiers would do to a town that wouldn't surrender, or how the American Indians were "pacified"

Could the Roman Empire at its height in the 2nd century AD defeat the Han Empire if both empires were located right next to each other?
>Romans could barely hold against the Germanic savages
Is that why several Germanic tribes were literally genocided by Marius?
>Han China would fuck up the Romans forever.
Sure thing, Wun Sun.
Why should the top 20% of any society care about things like universal suffrage or equality besides subjective concepts of morality?
>Because doing so impedes on their progress towards fame/family/wealth or some other glorified thing I've identified
That's a spook
Preemptive responses aside, you can just personally like doing people favors and shit or get a kick out of playing fair. Just extend that reasoning out.
Considering the interest of the bottom 80% clashes with the interest of the top 20% I still fail to see how things such as civil equality isn't spooky. Why should some wall street banker, who knows the economy, desire some poor single mother welfare queen has the same right to vote he has?

Hey guys, just working on a tierlist. Just thought i'd post it to see what you guys think before finishing, or if you wanted to add something ;)

Europe Between the Oceans: 9000AD-1000BC - Barry "Cuntlips" Cunliffe
Kind of a dry subject but the writing is pretty engaging and there are lots of pictures.
lengthy, but good. does a good job of not letting the reader get absolutely lost in the middle of it nor does it drone on and on about the imperial legal system/judiciary like others do.

What is the greatest wewuz of all time?
Africans claiming they were kings?
Modern Italians claiming they're Roman?
Germans with the Aryan thing?
Ashkenazi claiming they are native Israelites from 2000 yr ago?
Black people were kings just not egyptian ones but west African ones.
Modern Italians are closely related to Romans.
The biggest wewuz is Black people claiming they were chinese kings and that they were olmecs as well. Also Nordica claiming that the greeks were their ancestors.
Who was in the wrong here?
The United Kingdom, actually.
Granting Muslims their own state only served the reinforce their identities as "Muslims" rather than "Indians", which inevitably led to national disunity.
That being said, what is done is done, and we're pretty much left with a perpetual South Asian powderkeg.
Say something nice about pic related.
Your daily reminder that the U.S is solely to blame for the Middle East being of a complete mess
This was, for me, what got me settled firmly on Orthodoxy as opposed to Catholicism. You simply can't refute it. The Historical Gap Argument says that the Catholic Church's notion of the Early Church as being a single, corporate structure united under the authoritarian totalitarian leadership of the Pope of Rome as Christ's Vicar on Earth doesn't hold weight simply because no one from the Early Church mentions it. We see this version of Christianity first referred too really in the sixth century, and only really beginning to take off in the seventh. Up until...

The primacy of Rome did not exist until after the fall of the Western empire, the patriarch of Constantinople was the first among equals, including Rome.
Even the Catholic church teaches this.
I stopped reading your post after that.
