ITT great men whose son's achievements overshadow their own

Notice how Persian cavalry were always numerically superior.

Alexander was great because he could stall the Persian cavalry with his own, therefore securing his flanks, long enough to make a grand attack that would shatter the enemy.

Few if any other generals would have been able to not only monitor the battle so intensely as to discern the perfect moment to strike while also being so badass that they could then lead this strike themselves.
>dude, at issus he lured our cavalry on our left flank creating a gap while delaying us on our right so he could focus most of his cavalry on our left, maybe he'll try that again

Do you want to know the truth? Do you want to know what really happened in Rwanda?

It's really simple. What happened in Rwanda in 1994 never happened. That's right it never happened. The so-called "Rwandan genocide" did it happen and it was actually hutus killing hutus instead of the so-called famed documentation which claimed that hutus were killing Tutsis. The truth of the matter is it did not happen. Now why would they say that a genocide happened? It's really that simple Rwanda did not have a Rothschild run Bank in 1994 so the globalists needed a way to demonize a country that was trying to become independent of the West.

yes the president of Rwanda that was killed was anti-communist and thus he was on the side of the West. True. But at the same time it was the very globalists the Rothschilds the Soros the Rockefellers Etc who backed the Tutsis when the Western Global imperialists were imposing their Western model on Rwanda favoring the Tutsis over the hutus. the hutus fought back in 1994 and since then they have been demonized by the globalists. All because they did not have a Rothschild Bank Run by the globalists and by the American Financial Elite. Isn't it such a coincidence that the Kagame regime today is pro-israel and it's Israel and the zionists would like to talk about the fairytale genocide that are that apparently occurred in Rwanda but no evidence has proven otherwise? I'm just asking questions.
The Rwandan genocide happened less than 25 years ago. please delete this thread

Was this the single most useless empire that ever existed? Not in terms of being the worst but just being pointless. The places it ruled would have been better off ruling themselves.

These are most asspain inducing empires
>byzantines after manzikert and 4th crusade
No. Ottomans easily take the cake, the asspain from the Balkans alone outperforms all the hate the Brits got. The meme is called remove kebab, not remove crumpet. Brits were vastly inferior, especially in that regard.
They are the best though. Many individuals in the West view the British Empire favorably. On the other hand, man Muslims (outside the Turkish) despise the Ottomans.

Does /his/ really care about true history? I defy anyone here to refute any of these posts.

Do you know how did Anne Frank died? Pic related.

The US had their own interment camps for US Japanese.

Jews died. From best we can can tell around 300,000-900,000.

There was no large scale extermination. The gas chambers are obviously a lie.

The deaths were via starvation and typus (what Anne Frank herself died of in April 1945 at the end of the war).

Germans could not feed and provide material for themselves, much less their jew POWs. The same thing would have happened to the US japaneese POWs had the US mainland came under such massive duress.

When you are shown pictures of the dead jews the allies found at the end of the war, those are typus (mostly) and starvation victims. Gassing does not somehow magically make you emaciated and skinny.

The US and RoC would have launched a counter invasion and ww3 would prob have happened?

I dunno, I dont know the power dynamics of the CCP to know what would ha ve happened and what Stalin would have done
After Puyi became installed as a Japanesse puppet emperor in Manchuria, he was lucky to have been treated so kindly
There was nothing wrong with the Chinese Communist Party ever. It was the most formidable structure, uniting the best men, which is why it lead the foundation to rekindled China.

>Inbe4 they made some errors and failed policies as they went along, overexaggerated by the Cold War and general American propaganda without any regard to their challenges and conditions.
Chiang Kaishek was a criminal warlord who struck at the legal civilian government of the state. The communists, being the part of that government, were merely resisting that military coup
Challenge mode: name something substantial that the CCP did wrong after the 1950s.

Is calling a neoliberal a marxist, similar to calling a neocon, a fascist?

And I'm telling you look up the word neoliberal
neocons are also neoliberal
Thatcher and Reagan were neoliberal
A neoliberal is someone who believes that a corporation collecting data, exploiting consumers and influencing the government to a massive scale (google, facebook etc.) is fine as long as said company has a social policy that promotes inclusion of PoC, disabled and LGBTQ+ people.

Worst of the worst.

Quick background. Recently someone left their wallet with over $1000 dollars cash in it at a restaurant I frequent. I spent nearly an hour trying to hunt them down based off of a shoddy address, eventually pinpointing their location as being a mobile home in a local trailer park. When I went to knock on the door I was greeted by a wild-eyed meth head, who quickly growled, ripped the wallet out of my hands, then slammed the door in my face.

I am SO FUCKING PISSED OFF, all that effort and not so much as even a thank you. I am living paycheck to paycheck, barely scraping by. $1000 dollars in liquid cash would be life changing. Thinking back on it, the reason I did all that was because it was “the right thing to do”. But why does that actually matter? No one would have known and my life would have been measurably improved. I guess the ultimate question is what is the point of truly altruistic behavior, the kind of altruism that isn’t done just to get into heaven?

Anon, stop asking yourself philosophical questions because you saw someone who doesn't understand the principle of reciprocity.

If someone doesn't understand reciprocity, nature will make him learn it(karma).

If you don't believe in karma, then just let this case, forget about it. You shouldn't waste time and money for crakheads. You can teach him reciprocity if you want(you can be violent in your education, also).

>Thinking back on it, the reason I did all that was because it was “the right thing to do”. But why does that actually matter? No one would have known and my life would have been measurably improved.
The more people act like this, the more human condition is enhanced on a global scale.

>I guess the ultimate question is what is the point of truly altruistic behavior, the kind of altruism that isn’t done just to get into heaven?
Well, altruism is done by empathy, but also, the more there is altruistic people who understand reciprocity, the more the our global condition is enhanced. People "do the right thing" because it helps the world to work correctly, this is what we call "civilization". Civilization is a state of humanity where there is a certain organization, institutions and morality that helps to advance.

Theres no point, you did the right thing.
You don't always get a reward that's part of understanding reality and life.
But even if you feel bad, I can tell that the fact that you did something good without waiting a material or heavenly reward makes you good in my eyes

Let's say UK with her dominions and France didn't declared war when Germany invaded Poland. Do you think the Western front of WW2 would have been none existing and Hitler would only focus on the USSR and the Eastern front?

Or would he eventually brought UK and France in too the war anyway because "muh versailles treaty"?

From what I understand Hitler and his Germany only wanted to be at war with the filhty Bolsheviks, at least in the beginning. UK, France and rest of world wasn't that interesting but he knew they were going to declare war once he attacked Poland. But if they didn't, could the WW2 have been avoided?

No, I didn't. Russia wasn't even viewed as a threat, they were viewed as a bunch of incompetent retards. Russia would've been invaded only if France was successfully invaded first, which is exactly what happened in real life too.

Who really won?
Jimmy Carter had the bad luck to be president when the Iranians got fed up with American shit and revolted and kidnapped a truckload of Americans for 444 days.
That made him look "weak" even though neither he nor Reagan nor Charlemagne could have gotten the kidnappees released except by getting them all killed.
John Anderson, since he lived longer than either of them.

>literally any theological stance that could be taken has been taken in some form of hinduism
Hint: it's not "A religion". If one takes into account a single philosophical school of Hinduism, it's pretty self-consistent.
Okay this explains thongs much better.
I concede my previous position.
Now I xanask about the other thing I'm interested in in this thread.

Can anybidy explain Zoroestrianism?
What are ahura manyu angra manyu spenta manyu exactly and what is zurvan.
What is its relation to hindu ism.
you're hamming it up majorly. Hinduism is basically panentheism with gods or demigods
shudra means dark because it refers to the earth as shudra are unskilled laborors and also, they are the most ritually impure varna so black is used to represent them
I follow a tantrik tradition, I have actually similar belief and conception of reality to materialist or scientist, reality is energies and powers which may be studied and utilised as tools and technology. The energy itself is not good or bad but may be used for good or ill.
