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.

Manicheanism incorporated figures such as the Buddha (and Boddhisattvas), Zoroaster, Jesus Christ, and various Hindu devas (namely, Krishna and Ganesh) into their belief-system: my question is, does this mean that adherents of Manicheanism in distant Rome - say, for example, Augustine of Hippo - were aware of the Buddha or of these Hindu devas?

And Everyone hated him for that.

Nobody knew, not even himself.

Your emotions don't trump facts
>He was German
Marx was born a protestant, became an atheist, married a protestant aristocrat at a church, had non jewish children, had a german as his best friend, was heavily antisemitic, and was influenced almost entirely by europeans. Lenin was born an orthodox, was given a christian name, and believed in jeezus until his father died and he became an atheist.
In any case, I don't give a fuck about jews, but I will defend them as long as stormfags keep using them to further their disgusting lies and ideology.
Marx was a member of a German nationalist movement and wrote an anti-zionist book.

>>Many miners work at the gold mine owned by Corporación Ananea. Under the cachorreo system they work for 30 days without payment. On the 31st day they are allowed to take with them as much ore as they can carry on their shoulders.[5] Whether the ore contains any gold or not is a matter of luck. Pocketing of nuggets or promising chunks of rich ore is tolerated.

Well the obvious idea would be to take a shit and bury them with your shit, not even kidding. IF you can bear the humiliation.
Eh, seems to worth a gamble. Seems like it can pay off big time. What's 30days of your life anyway? Plus they're probably providing room and board at the least. A lot of people basically get paid in wages just enough to afford rent and food in the food place.

>there's no reason why they should be on government property.

I never got this argument. The southern states voted to secede and send their men to war, why would they memorialize them on state property? It's not like it's federal property or anything.
why wouldn't*

Two things that never make it into the history books: one) The war was not about slavery until Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation (which did not free a single slave)
Two) The Confederate States of America would have prevented communism's spread into Cuba and possibly served as a fast reaction force against the rise of facism.
hey 'member when the southern states agreed to a constitution and then willfully violated it by seceeding unlawfully? Remember how this is different than a union of states asking for a representation in government andbeing denied outright, giving them the natural right rebel? Notice how breaking from a foreign power across the ocean that won't represent you is different from breaking away from the domestic government you agreed to because things didn't go your way? If northern Ireland unlawfully broke away from England it would be a similar situation, but your comparison is a logical fallacy. We were justified just like every other colony was justified when their rights weren't respected. They are literally all independent now, obviously one of things has legitimacy and the other does not. Thing is, you have to be strong enough or being justified doesn't matter even if the south was, which is wasnt.

is transhumanism the most logical outcome for society? IMO the fact that our life has changed radically just in the last 250 years thanks to the Industrial Revolution makes it seem that the only way to equal ourselves to the future technological advances will be by modifying ourselves with genetical engineering and other methods. This is just my opinion, so i wanted to see what does /his/ thinks and if they have any criticism they want to make known.

>yes it's &humanities thread, pls no hate

I mean i think in the long term it would be better to have genetical modifications but from what i see now we are realistically more close to having technological body parts.

>The US would most likely try to splinter China and prevent reunification.
Unlikely. The U.S. wasn't into the same style of imperialism the old european powers did. Theirs was mostly a market imperialism, of dumping a lot of exports, or later service exports, on the "colony". Business relations of that sort require stability, which is hard to do when you splinter a place the size of China into multiple warring camps.
I mean the hypothetical is way too vague. Do you mean that the CCP didn't exist? Because the reason Mao won was he had the best generals and leaders, so if it was just Mao who didn't exist then the CCP still might have won, except without a full retard as its figurehead

This is true to a certain extent, but you're ignoring how the concept of intersectionality is currently in vogue among leftists and it's whole purpose is to unite "oppressed groups" against fucking white cishet males.
It just goes to show how radicalized Jews have become where at one point they at least acknowledged the greatness of European civilization even if they wanted to change to becoming full blown europhobes who want open borders.

Is solitary confinement unethical? Why do most people do terrible in solitary confinement?
31 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
shut the fuck up for a second you don't get it or you're intentionally missing the point.

I'm not that guy, and clearly he's far more polite than I am. What is being implied here is that you do not have to put them in a literal torture chamber to separate them if they are a threat. It is not ethnical to use a literal torture chamber as punishment for crimes, nor is it necessary. They do not need to be put under the conditions they are put under, there is a spectrum here and you're ignoring the other obvious implication that there is somehow no other options, you ask, "what else do we do with them?" and when given an answer you go right back to assuming there is no other option. People that argue like this piss me the fuck off. Seriously kill yourself.

Furthermore it is not ethical to socially deprive a tranny or homosexual and subject them to the special conditions under the law, this goes against the constitution. The prison system is extremely corrupt and there is nothing ethical or justified about it. Needs full-fledged reform, but it won't happen because everyone knows they don't actually give a shit about human beings or their mental health and just want free labor slaves. Kind of like how you don't give a shit, so you post in defense of clearly corrupt things because you idolize with their cheeky little schemes and LARP as a big shot business guy on 4chan even though you're just some nerd trying to be a contrarian.

The prison system is currently violating the constitution, and nobody is doing anything about it because it's just a piece of paper and it only matters if someone is willing to enforce it. Everyone in power that could do something about it has so far decided to take the money instead. Completely corrupt, we've literally privatized incarceration and slavery. Don't get caught smoking weed or the feds get another slave, remember kids!

So if man commits 4murders wile incarnated, what should be done with him? If an inmate has demonstrated that every chance they get they will commit violence on a guard , inmate, or worse yet, have gang members on the outside commit murders on your behalf, why would you not separate them from everyone? What would your solution be for inmates like pic related?

Homosexuals and trannies aren't placed into solitary, I was saying that no one in prison wants the pedophilles and child killers near them. Sorry if you misunderstood. I agree with everything you sad about the system itself. I'm specifically talking about solitary confinement. But seriously, in this day and age no one goes to prison for smoking weed. Get this libshit bleeding heart myth out of your head. I got caught smoking while I was driving and got a $100 ticket.
