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.

Why don't humans (generally) operate in a way similar to wolves where there are a couple of dominant ones who do all the breeding, or lions where there's one male lion?

Human children are fragile and require an intense investment for the first 14 years of their life, so a mating pair is better suited to providing for them.

Also please recommend any useful literature about urbanism, city development, planning, etc.

Why they just keep adding the same fucking civs over and over again? Theres like gorillion thousand civilizations and nations that never get in just because dude france, england and merica lmao.

Eleanor had a much greater impact than Margaret.

why record dialog and animate leaders for a civ no one knows or that doesn't live today?
Because its boring to have the same civs in every game, they could atleast add few who? tier civs/cunts just for the sake of it. Would be nice way to learn from less known nations too.

Right wing populist =/= Fascist

Mosley wasn't *against violence* but he didn't like what he saw as useless wars, and didn't send his Stewards to attack his opponents, they came to him plenty.

>it was about the Nazis and their allies razing Europe to the ground and deliberately mass murdering millions of Europeans
I don't know if you're just going to argue your case as to why he's wrong or simply see why Mosley thought as he did, but Mosley argued an entity such as the British Empire, no stranger to genocide, aggressive expansion, and obvious, blatant imperialism, ought not to spend it's blood and resources fighting another European power aiming to achieve it's own empire (and Autarky) in the opposite geographic direction as Britain.

Egypt has continuously been ruled by foreign conqueror invaders for 2,300 years with not a single native Egyptian ruling themselves for that time. From 343 BC since the Achaemenid Persians invaded and conquered Egypt to Alexander the Great, Macedonian Ptolemys, Romans, Zenobia, Eastern Romans, Arab Rashiduns, Umayyads, Abbasids, Turkic Tulunids, Arab Fatimids and Berbers, Kurdish Ayyubids, Turkic Kipchak Bahri Mamluks, Circassian Burji Mamluks, Ottoman Turks, Napoleon, Albanian Muhammad Ali dynasty and the British until the Albanians were overthrown and Egypt was established as a republic in 1953 CE. Every single one of those people were foreign invaders who violently conquered Egypt. Since 1953 Egypt has been ruled by Egyptians LARPing as Arabs.

Being a peasant would be fine, serf would be shit. Serfs were tied to their lords land and were lowest class of peasants. Peasants could actually own their own land and would just have to give some food to the lord and/or farm some of the lords land too

Social support =/= bread lines
It was pretty bad overall. Not as bad as most other commie countries, but much worse than Western Europe, at least economically. Old people were brainwashed, so they never knew the truth. There's still a lot of nostalgia because of that.

Here's a Slovenian docu about the army and other stuff too:
>he thinks tockice were discount coupons
Literal brainlet. It was the only way to buy oil, bread, fuel, butter and other life essentials.
