What was the closest real world equivalent to the Rohirrim? Was there one at all?
They seem to be based partially on the Anglo-Saxons, but the Anglo-Saxons didn't use cavalry much as far as I know. Perhaps the Goths are a more accurate comparison?
Where there any early-middle age European societies that relied heavily or primarily on light-to-medium cavalry? Not counting Iranian and Eurasian steppe peoples, as the Rohirrim are clearly more northern or western European or Nordic in appearance.
Additionally, were there any particular middle age societies... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I genuinely believe that art, observations and creativity is more valuable than the goals they might accomplish. To put it simply, I believe the ideal status quo is a society that exists to make art, rather than art that exists for a society. I can't justify this, because values are pretty fundamentally arbitrary from my perspective, it is just what I find to be the most worthy endeavor. Is there a name for worldviews similar to this?
/his/, I just had an interesting conversation with a student at my uni. She said that she wanted military history and history, political science, and so on classes about war and violence removed from university curriculums nationwide, and also literature or film classes that assigned books or films that show violence or war in a positive way.
I asked her why, and she said that the humanities, including military histories, have often been used to push a violent, hegemonic narrative of militarization and to legitimize violent agendas and violent actions in the mind of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Being in Latin America. Brazilian people are incredibly creative and know how to solve their problems, they are a great country (probably the best in Latin america), but they can't be better because of their surroundings.
What went wrong? Why did it devolve into race riots, violent anti-war protests, suburban flight, urban blight, and the shift in allegiance of white middle- and working-class voters to the Republican Party? Is it all LBJ's fault or were there bigger influences at work?

Is it true that for a while( they stopped during edo period) Japanese samurai/military class would train women(Onna-bugeisha) in using nagitnata to defend the home when men go out on war? Naginatas (and pole arms in general) were said to be good for women since it gives them more leverage against stronger opponents(men). >inb4 "muh gurl power" and "female warriors" fantasy meme" I'm actually asking a serious question based on articles I've read.

>>553519 It was something that happened but it was hardly normal as it was looked down upon, it was only done when necessary. It should also be remembered that most Japanese people were peasants so this sort of thing was a tiny minority within a minority.
>>553551 Yeah I understand that it was only people who could afford arms (i.e. nobles) and they probably didn't usually have to fight. I just wanted to know if they were still usually trained anyway (possibly in marksmanship with bows as well) just in case. Any other sources on this topic too?

>A few years ago George McGovern led the charge to take the power of nominating a candidate out of the hands of the democratic establishment and give more authority to the caucuses and primaries themselves >McGovern was extraordinarily progressive and anti-war in addition to being in favor of a number of long held progressive ideas >The democratic establishment, fearing that such an outsider and a radical would be unelectable, repeatedly tried to hamper his campaign, throwing their support behind Hubert Humphrey a career politician from a modest background >During the campaign one democratic senator was quoted as saying " "The people don't know McGovern is for amnesty, abortion, and legalization of pot. Once middle America – Catholic middle America, in particular – finds this out, he's dead." The label stuck and McGovern became known as the candidate of "amnesty, abortion, and acid." It became Humphrey's battle cry to stop McGovern — especially in the Nebraska primary. >Despite recieving little support from the establishment McGovern's grass roots campaigns won him the vital states of New York, Texas, and especially California, and got him the nomination >After winning the nomination, now he had to wait for the establishment to pick a running mate for him. They settled on Thomas Eagleton
