Communism in the United States

>CP historians estimate, moreover, that almost half of the party’s membership was Jewish in the 1930s and 1940s, and that approximately 100,000 Jews passed through the party in those decades of high member turnover. It seems safe to say, then, that Jewish women were one of the CP’s largest sectors during the Depression and war years; and for each who was a “card-carrying” Communist, there were several who took part in party-led mass organizations but did not belong to the party itself.

the funny thing is, germans and even russianized germans, of which there were many, were hated ferociously by many russians in the 18th and 19th centuries because they had huge overrepresentation in the russian imperial government.

i've read this, it is very information heavy and trying to take on a subject that needs a few books really, that said the first third or so was great for giving me ideas for stuff to look into. Its a good book to start with if you can read long books as it is an easy read, its just the author tries to put to much in while still trying to keep the book in a readable tone.

I might be wrong, I'm only human. The best thing you can do if you really want to try to understand these things is to pray, to ask God to show you what he means, read The Bible, and fellowship. Listening to or reading scholars isn't bad either, but take what they say into prayer. Chuck Missler is a good start, and his commentaries are great. Michael Heiser is more of an academic type, but he's good if you want a more structured and cited approach.

Lol what's he waiting for

Is it possible to find your way through the tunnel with jhana? Can jhana alone help guide your path?

Ive practiced meditation for several years but I have never entered a jhana-state. I also find the teachings of the Buddha (such as mindfulness and non-clinging) to be cold and dry, and I have a hard time following them in day to day life.
Being a lay practitioner is not easy. As a lay practitioner, samadhi is experienced during retreats with hours upon hours of Shikantaza or other meditative practices. One is also surrounded by Buddhist literature in between sitting too. However, as an actual monk or hermit with the financial means, discipline, and health, samadhi can be sustained more easily.

Brainlet here, we know the biblical stories of the Jews and all that but do historical accounts back up events told in the Bible? That being said, looking outside of the Bible, where did the Jews/Hebrews/Israelis come from? Are the people I listed even the same people? Its quite surprising that you don't see many discussions about early Jewish history or their origins despite them being mentioned constantly on many boards on this site.

The Phoenicians and all those other Canaanites and Northwest Semites. The earlier growth of the Akkadians was also impactive. I imagine the region as a proxy struggle between the Egyptians and the Sumerians and with the Akkadians being one of those that rose to greatest prominence.

They specialized in a medium range "jack of all trades" 75 mm that was a total compromise on both range and firepower.

>and the best infantry rifle.

>France had the best field artillery,
They factory limited the range of their field artillery because they thought it should only be used in a direct fire role.
They also had a lot fewer guns and way way fewer shells
>the best infantry rifle.
No. Their rifles were worse than the German ones
The Brits had the best battle rifle

Discussing with leftists is like discussing with children, it's gives you absolutely nothing and is not worth the time or effort.
I've had better discussions talking about politics with "Marxists" on /lit/ than any right wing brainlet on pol, just saying
Mr. Rogers

He is the man the world needs right now.

He would talk down Putin, leftists, nationalists and feminists and get them all to stop their nonsense.
>I've had better discussions talking about politics with "Marxists" on /lit/ than any right wing brainlet on pol

That's setting the bar pretty low
Unoronically this. He was once parodied in a burger king commercial. He disliked it so he called the president of BK at the time. In their conversation rather than threatening legal action Rogers gave him a heart to heart talk about responsibility a children's show host had. It worked and the commercial was taken off the air by the personal request of the president of BK.

>printing press
>Hindu-Arabic numerals (or equivalents)

Just those three inventions, and just imagine how vastly different Roman history would have been. All of them were perfectly within their means. It's not like I'm asking them to invent nuclear reactors or even steam engines.

With a printing press, and paper, there'd be no need for scribes. Works could be better preserved, and reading more readily distributed. Literacy would increase. The Hindu-Arabic numerals are a simple invention, and far superior to Roman Numerals. RN limit how complex your mathematics can get. They're required to do anything high level.

Paper didn't show up in Europe til the Muslims got hold of them from the Chinks in the 700s AD.

Romans used either Papyrus or more commonly, Vellum. But writing was initially done on a wax tablet before being transcribed into expensive papyrus/vellum.

The Romans were cut off from papyrus productio during the early middle ages or late antiquity while multi-quire Coptic stitch binding developed by the 4th century. They say codices were derived from the wax tablets.
