Trajan without a doubt. For starters, they'd be career veterans instead of random citizen conscripts, and secondly their equipment, training, and auxiliaries would be better.
I tend to agree, while noting that Marius was, I think, a better general (not to say Trajan was a slouch) which might make it into a closer contest.
25k cataphracts is a retardadly huge number. That would steamroller any army. I don't think 25k cataphracts have ever been amassed in the same area at once

Tried to make this on /pol/, unfortunatly I made the mistake of thinking that I would get any form of discussion on /pol/, so here I am.

Is the United States of America both equally a constitutional libertarian state as well as a Leviathan god of war u_wot_m8.jpg

Internally, the government is limited in its power over the people through both seperation of powers and constraints from the constitution. Therefore, the government, from those who are governed by it, is there to serve the people. Where the real power is with the people, not a government entity. On the outside however. Towards other nations and sovereign entities. The United States is a powerhouse that can not be fucked with. Its Army and Airforce can annihilate entire countries and continents. Its Navy literally owns all of the Oceans, and its Marine Corp can send a massive expeditionary force anywhere in the world within a 24-48hr period.

Is this what is necessary for a stable, surviving nation? Not a this or that approach but rather a combination of both Hobbes and Locke. More specifically, finding the proper balance between the libertarians wet dream and the all powerful Leviathan destroying anything and controlling everything in its wake.
>on the outside
what the fuck do you mean, of course a nation is going to treat non-citizens differently than citizens.

There's no contradiction here, I don't know where you think you're seeing it
>Towards other nations and sovereign entities. The United States is a powerhouse that can not be fucked with. Its Army and Airforce can annihilate entire countries and continents.

It's not the country doing it, it's whatever cabal of billionaires and generals currently control the military with the blessing of the media.

Don't blame powerless citizens for what sociopaths unilaterally do.
Yes this is exactly what I remember thinking after reading Hobbes. I'm not too concerned with political philosophy anymore so I don't wish to discuss but just thought I'd say you're not alone in your thinking. I will say though that we're not as domestically libertarian as you may think.

I made this thread off of an idea that I had(a hypothesis if you will, hon hon), don't know if it is original or if a thousand people have thought of this before me but whatever here it is.

Government, from the viewpoint of those who are governed. Is a system that allows individuals and groups to live in safety through promoting unity, with the sacrifice of
Certain "pure freedoms", or animal freedoms; such as the freedom to kill, but with this sacrifice, those whom choose to sacrifice pure freedoms are granted to live from
the land of the free to a governed land of safety and unity. Government, from the viewpoint of those who govern, is a means of which to force their will upon others. To
yearn for a sense of control. To shape the world and everything that we(people) experience into their world. The true equilibrium of society, ideology, psychology and economy
is the balance of, or rather the suppression of; the will of those who govern over the sancturary of artificial safety of those who are governed. To bring to and sustain this
equilibrium through the forces of culture, society, ideology, economy and psychology have brought to and have sustained a stable society as a whole.

I feel that the state, or rather Human organization as a whole. Has always been a battle between those who are governed and wish to live in a state that ensures them safety and security and protects them from the state of nature, both outside forces and from themselves. While on the other hand, those who seek to govern, in a very Nietzsche kind of way, wish to enforce there will above and upon others, and so. Human civilization has been nothing more than a balancing act of these two contradicting political philosophies. With things such as Ideologies and economics serving as different ways to throw either side either as the dominant force(putting power into the people or putting power in the state) or to find the balance point between them.

idk I'm drunk, your guy's thoughts on this?

>Just Ignore them
>Christcucks can't accept that there whole life they have been duped

They're not being duped by the gospels other than most of the miracles - but they decided to adopt all the blasphemy the Jews wrote in other documents which led them into joining the Jews' gang.

The "Christians" who follow Moses will be punished accordingly along with the Jews for conspiracy to commit treason against the God-Emperor, conspiracy to commit genocide, conspiracy to commit rape, conspiracy to commit terrorism, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to kidnap by use of threats, ect..

You assume the sources of the Bible can't be trusted when sources for Greek and Trojan history come from myths and other single, uncorroborated sources, but you'd probably accept those as legitimate, wouldn't you? Your bias is pretty obvious.

Compromise for the national interest and betterment of the nation > personal political ambition

that's like statesmanship 101

I never said that Bush was a bad president. He obviously wasn't.
My point was that politics isn't fair, and voters are fickle creatures that will often fail to turn out when you need them.
