Did the Soviets maintain a similar level of parity to the US during the Cold War that the Chinese do today?

nah, that's a meme. Chinese economy is entirely dependent on being able to export to richer nations, but if Americans stopped getting Chinese imports tomorrow we would simply revert back to the state of affairs from a few decades ago.
>>
>>4011369
Anon thia is bait poating. The United States production ability out class majority of the nations on earth.

China losing the U.s as a trade partner and exporter would do more harm to it and ita economy than the U.S. There is also the fact that China is incapable of complete power projection and doesn't have that many allies who will put up with its stuff. We also have other factors to think about when it comes to a military and that is logistics and corruption.

I agree. The catastrophe that was the Tupolev Tu-144 really demonstrated the burgeoning gap between western technology leaders like France, UK and USA. The Soviets even asked for technology and French expertise to help solve some of the design challenges and were rebuked multiple times.

>>4010340
The Americans made the F-15 to beat the hypothetical super-fighter the MiG-25 looked like. In actuality it was pretty trash and only has the advantage of flying really really really fast and mounting some pretty boilerplate missiles that were pretty good at their introduction. Pretty much every American 4th gen buries the MiG-25.

So thats why the anglos had a huge trade deficit against china before 1840. Thats whu china was still the largest economy in the world?
>>
>>4012049
Wages in my country are going up. Like in most of the world. Healthcare and education are tax-funded where I live. International markets can't really help you there, that is on you, a poor nigerian child can stitch your shirts but she can't stretch her arms over the ocean to build your house nor can she teach you something nobody taught her.

To really get the impact of outsourcing you need to look at the plunging prices of electronics. The components for these are built over production chains that stretch around the globe. The people that build them are getting better wages and the people that buy them can get them cheaper. It's actually amazing how fast people change phones and laptops, nowadays. I still have my cell phone from 2000.

Food prices have mostly held steady because westerners, specially americans, waste a lot of food (deliberately increasing food scarcity) and demand is growing worldwide very fast due to demographic explosion. Food prices will stay up unless: people waste less food, population stops growing faster than the agricultural output, or we have a new green revolution that can make agricultural development outpace demographic growth. Still, world hunger is shrinking.
>>
>>4012055
They weren't the lamest but not the same as before. Largest economy in the world? Come now. And perhaps Britain would have stayed on top if they hadn't squandered so much sticking their dick in other country's businesses.

Plus are we still going to over look how shit places like Japan became after isolationism and how shit most of Africa always was because of isolationism? Really?

Can it be said that some (or even many) technologies have been, or could be direct detriments to the average person as well as society at large?

No. The Columbus hate by the average zombifyed amerimutt is 100% based on his Whiteness. We /his/torians can form our own views apart from the common rabble that don't need to paint him as being entirely bad or good.

Pretty much. Almost everything that is taught about Robespierre comes directly from his political enemies. It's amazing that historians have used that information as fact. It would be like writing a book about Marie Antoinette and claiming she wanted to bathe in the blood of French children because her enemies wrote that in a pamphlet.

naval warfare back then was much less complicated than it was during the napoleonic wars. in ancient times, ships fought by trying to ram each other into smithereens, and rome got around it by creating a tool to latch onto ships and turn naval combat into pseudo land combat. that is much simpler than the cannon centric combat of naval warfare in the napoleonic era.
>>
>>4011941
>>4012018
This is true. Rome didn't defeat overcome Carthaginian naval superiority by having a better naval strategy. They just changed the game entirely. Such a thing wasn't possible for Napoleon.

Well, /his/, is it?
>>
>>4012026
Yes to all of those.

On 27 May 1817, the body of a murder victim - 20-year-old Mary Ashford - was found in a flooded sandpit at Erdington, a village lying five miles outside of Birmingham in England. Exactly 158 years afterwards to the very day and hour of the Ashford murder, history repeated itself in a most brutal and chilling way when 20-year-old Barbara Forrest was strangled and left in the long grass near to the children's home in Erdington where she was employed as a nurse. This may seem nothing more than a coincidence, but more intriguing similarities and parallels between the two murders came to light when the police were investigating the Barbara Forrest murder.

As a police archivist officer read through the Ashford murder of 1817 he shook his head in disbelief. Whit Monday had been on 26 May both in 1817 and 1975 - the year of the Barbara Forrest murder. Like Ashford, Barbara Forrest had been raped before being murdered and both victims were found within 300 yards of one another. Ashford and Forrest shared the same birth date, and the coincidences didn't stop there. Both girls had visited their best friend on the evening of the Whit Monday to change into a new dress for a local dance party. After each murder a suspect was arrested whose name was Thornton, and in both instances, this Mr Thornton was charged with murder but subsequently acquitted.

Recently I have become fascinated by the Aztecs and would like to learn more about them from non-meme sources.
I am asking you, /his/, to provide me with directions to quality literature/documentaries about them. Even the most normie-beginner-tier stuff would do, since I know next to nothing about Mesoamerica anyway.
I am especially interested in their mythology/religion and general culture. Something about their warfare would be a nice bonus.

P.S. If there are any works about elements of their religion/culture surviving to this day as actual day-to-day practices, I'd be very interested as well.

No, I have not. Do elaborate or be so kind to provide sources to aforementioned news in English, (alternatively in Czech/Slovak, German or Russian) if possible, since my Spanish is sub-par and I won't be able to properly understand original sources while google-translate could be quite inadequate at times.
