Most effective wall in all of humanity's glorious wall-building history.
Hadrian's Wall isn't what you think it is. It was little more than a glorified border crossing. Britons from north of the wall would cross it every day to trade with the local auxiliary garrisons.
Who are examples of the concept of the Übermensch?
Is athiesm about materialism?
Why does the human race spend all their money on new technologies and spend their whole life trying to attain objects that are impermanent?
Why do people say being an atheist makes you smarter?
Why do they shut down spiritual topics in public schools? Couldn't they benefit from teachings about spirituality?
>Is athiesm about materialism?
>Why does the human race spend all their money on new technologies and spend their whole life trying to attain objects that are impermanent?
Perhaps you are conflating materialisms.
Nah I meant like, if the world generally doesn't believe in afterlife (not sure about statistic) why would they go out of their way to improve technologies and make new buildings when if we only have one life to live, wouldn't helping people and not try killing eachother in war be a good way to go about life?
What do you think about the Islamic Empire ?
What do you think about the german Sonderweg theory? (represantative historians: Winkler, Dahrendorf, Wehler)
It states that Germany, unlike other Western countries, was successfully industrialized, but was still ruled by absolutistic rulers (German Empire), which caused German foreign politics to be ruthless and is a cause for the Great war. This also lead to anti-democratic tendencies in the Weimer republic, which was then replaced by Nazi-Germany.
Discuss and share your thoughts
Thats a common and valid argument against this theory.
However the thing which seperates Germany from the UK, France and the US is the astonishing success of industrialization which happened in a socially backward country. In coutries with comparable systems like Russia, industrialization wasnt even remotely successful.
How much east African heritage do African Americans have, or are they exclusively of west African and European descent?
So...well erm...why do you not just kill yourself?
Because being is ultimately more satisfying than not being.
Satisfaction is in the bourgeois concept that met us at the dawning of the Universe?
Where does your satisfaction exist?
What is the most perfect and enduring legal document in human history and why is it the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights?
"Some men look at constitutions with sanctimonious reverence and deem them like the ark of the covenant, too sacred to be touched. They ascribe to the men of the preceding age a wisdom more than human and suppose what they did to be beyond amendment. I knew that age well; I belonged to it and labored with it. It deserved well of its country. It was very like the present but without the experience of the present; and forty years of experience in government is worth a century of book-reading; and this they would...

What does /his/ think of this guy?
Why is Pinochet so vilified when his regime was relatively undeadly compared to 95% of Marxist regimes? Is the Left just a propaganda mill or was he actually that bad? And what's this I keep hearing about helicopters?
Pinochet is more significant in the West because he would not have come to power without American help. This is considered a betrayal of the United States' self-declared values.
Pinochet is associated with helicopters because during his rule murdered political dissidents would be thrown from helicopters into the ocean or Chile's lakes and rivers.
However, this is somewhat of a meme; only a small fraction of Pinochet's victims were actually killed in this manner; the Process in Argentina killed significantly more this way.
I will primitively describe some general's/country's strategy and you should guess who is he or what country is it.

Why do you guys think the roman empire fell?
Vast government corruption, hyper-inflation, a weakened and overstretched military, and hundreds of thousands of soldiers and their families flooding their borders to carve out their own kingdoms.
This is 4chan though so it'll probably all be "muh multiculturalism, muh degeneracy, muh feminism"
Which "Great" deserved the title the least?
I say "Great" Britain
Shitting on England (yeah I know, but England=GB=UK, no one cares) is funny, since most of people shit on them while using English invention in English language.
If anyone deserves respect for their historical deeds, it's the English, they built the modern world.
Hey guys I ended up in a sticky situation with a time machine. What's the easiest way to kill a viking pls m8s. Dubs decides what I do with their ship if I win.
>What's the easiest way to kill a viking pls m8s.
a single viking? Gather a small army of around 100 people and equip them with the finest weapons and armor you can find, you may stand a chance. If you're trying to kill a viking beserker then you're going to have a really bad time and you may need 400-600 men.
>What's the easiest way to kill a viking
Ask them to read a book.
Why they were such great fighters?
because of where they lived. They thrived in the in the harshest environment on out planet, this made them the toughest warriors of their age(if not of all time), it also helps that they forged their steel weapons in the same forge they burned their most honorable warriors in.
