> By ‘patriotism’ I mean devotion to a particular place and a particular way of life, which one believes to be the best in the world but has no wish to force on other people. Patriotism is of its nature defensive, both militarily and culturally. Nationalism, on the other hand, is inseparable from the desire for power. The abiding purpose of every nationalist is to secure more power and more prestige, not for himself but for the nation or other unit in which he has chosen... Comment too long.

The battle of cable street wasn't a coup attempt, it was a protest march being BTFO.
Fascism never had much appeal in Britain - it's hard to talk about the need to reverse national humiliation with a strong leader when you already rule half the fucking world. A few butthurt aristocrats and contrarian intellectuals, but never anything near an electoral majority.
>Iraq annexes Kuwait >Kuwait doesn't want to be Iraqi
That's the legal and moral side done. The practical side went like this.

>>561931 That's a hard question but... I'll have to go with John Neumeier's The Little Mermaid, San Francisco version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k27lDDj07Z4
I saw it live, not expecting much, but it was a really surprising experience. There's a scene where the Mermaid, now turned human and on the Prince's wedding cruise, feels herself trapped in her room and she begins to beat the walls confining her in her little human room in despair. On the night I saw it, she was so intense during this... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>561916 I was a male ballet dancer. Originally wanted to go professional. Trained at School of American Ballet, American Ballet Theater's JKO academy, the Rock School for Dance Education, the Bolshoi Summer Intensive, and Edward Ellison's Academy in New York. I also competed in the Youth America Grand Prix in the solo and Pas De deux categories. Danced most male leads and variations throughout the years until I decided I wanted to go to college and have a normal life. Favorite roles to dance are Solor from La Bayadere,... Comment too long.

Why is philosophy relevant in an academic sense? In terms of relevant information gained, isn't philosophy a negative-sum endeavor? I mean we all have thinking minds, question our place in the world, but to study the opinions of others? This attitude of cohesive idealism reminds me too much of religion.
Because theories aren't developed by one person thinking in the shower for 5 minutes. They are developed for years by countless individuals. For this to occur the development must occur within philosophical structures.
e.g John Locke builds the foundations of Liberalism as an moral and political, the continentals continue to build on Liberalism applying it to history and economics, modern liberalism is not applied to ethics, political philosophy, international relations, economics and so on.

If we were quadruped but had tentacle things on our head that allowed us to manipulate objects we would probably not need horses since we would be fast travelers being quadruped although our fighting would be much different.

Reenactor here, I'm looking for evidence of weapons similar to the cleaver thing being used on the guy in the foreground in the 1150-1250 period in europe. My groups rules state that I need either two more written references, one more picture, or one surviving artefact as proof. Can anyone help?
>>561729 The problem is that your weapon might not actually exist. Lots of artists never actually saw the things they created, and if they did it was only a glimpse. My best guess though if I had to is that its some kind of messer.
On a very basic level, I could go into more detail, Spanish Fascism built heavily on pre-existing Spanish structures of the Church, Conservatism and existing Spanish culture. Italian Fascism attempted to forge a new set of values and morals a la Futurism whilst still using Italian history as cause for military expansion.
>>561666 Spanish "Fascism" was essentially a run-of-the-mill military dictatorship.
Italian Fascism actually reformed the government and had pretensions of a coherent ideology that could be applied elsewhere. Whether that would have been possible is a pure hypothetical, but they thought it would be that way.
