This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

Is it ethical to shoot someone in defense of your property if they are not an immediate threat to you or others?
96 replies and 18 images omitted. Click here to view.
I don't understand how you can support current system of private property, capitalism, etc without supporting use of force including lethal force to defend property.
Yes, assuming you confirmed invaders bad intentions, of course.
why would you shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane?

not sure a big guy would do that and I have been told I'm a big guy
You can tell which of these anons are Europeans and Canadians.

Only the same kind of idiots who have made it legal for shitskins to rape their women would also be decrying Americans for being naturally defensive of their homes.
that would be overkill

you try to take your property back and if they are willing to use violence to stop you then you shoot

Why did the British Empire succeed while the Spanish Empire succumbed to inefficiency and corruption?

It didn't. It slowly decentralized and peacefully ended.
Think about it for a second, if you had colonies that brought in shit ton of gold and silver, you wouldn't care about efficiency or corruption as much. On the other hand if you colonized less resource rich regions like the British did, you have to have an efficient administration in these colonies.
bad bait

Even with the sailing technology of the time, going from China trough the Straits to, say, Egypt, would've been pretty doable.
Yeah, but it still doesn't change the "fact" that China is already one of the major powers in the world, and for next 10~15 years they will become another super power which rival US, it doesn't matter how hard you shitpost now, enjoy your shitpost moment while you can, because it will happen not matter what.

Btw, you think elevate and uphold the living quality of such enormous population is easy? No, it's not at all. You have another contemporary example like India for reference.

Well the Chinese government certainly didn't help the situation. Have you seen Vice's documentary on Chinese ghost cities?
>and for next 10~15 years they will become another super power which rival US
Assuming they can avoid a debt crisis from having propped up the post-crisis growth figures with loads of credit for political reasons.

Examples of relatively modern (late 18th - 21st century) which you'd think a Roman would like?
Any high-rise building with concrete I reckon, after all they invented the stuff.
Very stupid question: didn't the romans paint their marble? I think they did with the statues. Didn't they also paint the buildings? Wouldn't they find weird as fuck these newly made buildings just white?

So I was thinking /his/ how white would the the world be if not for the millions of mainly white deaths in both or either world wars?

I know a lot of European country's like France would not be in the racial situation it is now if not for importing men from North Africa to replace those lost in the wars.

So my real question really is would whites be the majority or would we still be in the same situation now?
probably a lot and they would probably keep their empires too

because organic society, demographics and biopower

every totalitarism has a some fetish about family one way or another and some system of making people usefull, and its allways posited as the right and propper way for people to be, off course they will have a cult of motherhood, that dosent mean they didnt glorify mechanized mass murder and being brutal assholes, it wasnt just a means to an end, the means were the end, a point in itself

"Jokes on you, the guy who punched me in the face and made me run away and cry was actually a weakling bdsm weirdo!"

I dont see how this helps your case
Civil liberties is subverion's foot in the door of societal unity and cohesion.

Christian Science summed up in 1 pic:

Spout random science bullshit to make it seem like you know what you're talking about. Use very few, Christian based sources. ALWAYS remember to assume that if can't be explained, it means you're right
>Spout random science bullshit to make it seem like you know what you're talking about.
Isn't this atheism 101?
Also assume the person calling you out is an atheist

1. How do you explain the Bishop and Pipe of the time dismissing it as a fake?

2. The way the shroud is weaved coincides with the weaving methods of the Middle Ages, not of the first century.

3. John's gospel contradicts the shroud by saying Jesus was buried with a head cloth. Either John is wrong or the shroud is a hoax

4. In 2010 1 of the original shroud investigators was interviewed saying there was no way in Hell they took a combined part. AKA, dates aren't off
>carbon dated to right around the time it first appeared in history, more than a thousand years after its supposed origin
>lol probably just a coincidence
Jesus didn't exist, anon.

Hey /pol/, I'm doing a presentation at uni next week on Schindler's List.

The topic is:

>In what ways does Schindler's List, if any, offer a distorted representation of the Holocaust?

I just realized this is my chance to redpill some normies and get marks for it.

Can anyone think of any specific errors the film makes?

The holocaust did happen.
It was totally justified.
The Einsatzgruppen was an anti-terrorist organisation.
people know that 6 000 000 Jews were killed in WW2
but they probably don't know how many died in their own country
Belarus and Poland were massacred in much greater numbers

Germany killed more Slavs than Jews
yet the Jews are the one group focused on

I wonder why
maybe they have connexions in the entertainment industry to overhype their own victimhood?
