Prior to the 20th century, there was a distinct difference between popular culture and high culture. Popular culture has always been shit, and in most eras it had no funding and no one recording it. What we see as the culture of the past is the culture of the elite: artists/composers/authors commissioned by the Church or the nobility.
That distinction has broken down, so what people are seeing as the dominant cultural narrative of our time is now the equivalent of what would have been graffiti... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Algeria began piracy against the U.S. on 25 July 1785 with the capture of the schooner Maria, and Dauphin a week later. All four Barbary Coast states demanded $660,000 each. However, the envoys were given only an allocated budget of $40,000 to achieve peace. Diplomatic talks to reach a reasonable sum for tribute or for the ransom of the captured sailors struggled to make any headway. The crews of Maria and Dauphin remained in captivity for over a decade, and soon were joined by crews of other ships captured by the Barbary States. Comment too long.

The War on Drugs allows violent non-state actors to have great influence over states; but in that case it's the states decision to give them power, and an effective subsidy, so it's not quite like piracy or terrorism.
Can /his/ tell me about this weapon and other Mesoamerican weapons? Can this weapon be considered a sword? I know obsidian is brittle but sharp so would the pieces of the obsidian sticking out of the wood break off when tearing through skin? And if all of the obsidian pieces fall of would they(mesoamericans) use the wood as a club?
Weapon classifications are usually pretty flimsy in the first place, but no I would say this is more like a spiked club.
It's unique 'stick n drag' type action is distinct enough to potentially have its own classification I guess. But again most weapon experts can't even agree on what 'Shortsword' means so maybe we should just leave it alone.
Seems to me that their classifying some genetic testing from Starcevo and LBKT sites as the example of early neolithic genetics, then show the proportion of different modern european genetics which comes from this population, rather than later migrations such as the yamnaya. As in Sardinians are most similar genetically to the early neolithic Europeans.
I don't know the particular study, so I might be wrong, and it does seem simplified.
Marx's Kapital was first published in 1867, but it wasn't until 1917, fifty years later, that the first communist state came into existence. This means that Marxist thinkers had fifty years to iron out the details and produce a relatively consistent package of ideas to which most Marxists adhere.
In contrast, the first stirrings of fascist thought showed up during WW1 with thinkers like Gabriele D'Annunzio and Enrico Corradini, while Mussolini's March on Rome took place in 1922. This means that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is it really necessary for an ideology to simmer for 50 years before it can become an ideology? I really don't think so. All that's necessary is that a political movement attach itself to it. Socialism was an ideology at least as early as 1848 if we count the Paris Commune as a political movement with an ideology, and while socialism isn't identical to Communism I think you're giving Marx too much credit in the development of an ideology that, as you note, didn't coalesce into a proper state till he was long dead. Fascism has roots in the 19th century... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It never did, even after Mussolini's march, no coherent form of fascism developed, if you look at the fascist parties of Europe
The difference between Hitler and Mussolini's fascism is the obvious comparison, but there are the other parties of Europe who never came to power but were organised and existed too
The British Union of Fascists also from socialist roots like Mussolini advocated a corporatist state, with workers voting based on their professions, electing representatives of that profession to represent them, wanting to create a parliament of...

I mean, maybe, but that just sounds like heresy, desu Tell Bible-thumping Christians you're an atheist but you believe in God and you'll get BTFO pretty hard A lot of Protestants would probably throw you in the bucket with Catholics and pagans Civic religion is the most cucked form of spirituality ever practiced and the Founding Fathers were deists, so their understanding of God and religion is objectionable to most theists
As it turns out, command economies can work well when you're simply shoving peasants off of the fields and into factories, but when it comes to actually competing with an capitalist society, especially a capitalist society that has reached a post-industrial, heavily automated, service based economy, you don't have a chance in hell.
>>548041 They were too exhausted to do so. They had borne the brunt of the fighting in Stalingrad for months, and performing a counterattack would require turning all those exhausted men around to fight a relatively fresh force that greatly outnumbered them and was ready for exactly that.
The unfortunate thing with Stalingrad was that they were pretty much fucked as soon as Operation Uranus began. There was no way in hell the 6th Army was going to be able to pull out of Stalingrad in time to escape the encirclement short... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anyone interested in a thread about WW2 weapons? I mostly like artillery pieces and tanks, but small arms are welcome too.
My favorite tank is probably the Panzer V Panther. I'm not well-versed in the "Ausf." classifications. I know one type of Panther used the goofy-looking mantlet in my related picture. Possibly the Panzer V Ausf. J.
Also pictured on the bottom right is a 75 mm gun, classified as KwK. I know this is different from the 75 mm Pak. Is Kampfwagenkanone (KwK) the designation for any gun on a tank? I only see the term used when it's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>548035 The Stug was an infantry assault gun. It was supposed to be a type of self-propelled artillery. The Germans intended to assign it to the panzer divisions, but they didn't want to administer any more units of Stugs. Simialr bureaucratic balking kept the Stugs from being assigned to infantry units. Thus, the Stug units were administered by the artillery corps.
why does philosophy (mainly continental) so often ignore or seem uninterested towards findings in the sciences or mathematics? Is it just because they sometimes refute what was historically considered accurate?
