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.

Hitler for his motives
Stalin for kill count
Though it's important to remember that Hitler had the means and intent to kill far more than he ever did in his short reign
Hitler had a higher kill count though. Over 20 million Russians died during the invasion of the USSR. That's way higher than anything Stalin did.
>Hitler's Table Talk
mostly fabrication
Most of Hitler's victims were foreigners, whereas Stalin's victims were his own people
This reminds me of the founding fathers who were christian but were anti-religion.

The steppe people inherited advancements from middle easterners as they contacted each other.

Don't worry. I'm mentioning the comparison with Amerindians and the other migration waves and how they used the technology inherited over time.

The result is the same. Amerindians had a higher development rate than europeans.

"my" communism is regular communism, USSR at the core was barely more communistic than USA, communism only in the name.

So God made it so man had no knowledge, but expected him to know right from wrong and not eat the fruit?
I'm supposed to trust analogies intended for 2,000 year old desert kikes that I shouldn't enjoy any earthly pleasures because they're sins?
All my urges to do things that are universally good are actually Satan trying to convince me to sin because God wants to test me?

God said believe me.
God said obey me.
God said don't eat the fruit or you will die.

The devil said don't believe God.
The devil said don't obey God.
The devil said you can eat the fruit and not die.

Mankind disbelieved, disobeyed, and rebelled against God.

The knowledge of good and evil is not "knowledge" per se, and the price of gaining it was nowhere near the cost paid for it.

>culteral marxism
bold of you to openly admit you fell for obvious boogieman of the cuckservatives
>reality is a boogeyman

You do realize cultural marxism is literally happening infront of our eyes in U.S. campuses, right?

Everything the commies and Frankfurt school talked about, is being fulfilled to the T.
Literally every significant problem is being caused by a will to hoard resources as is human nature.

Because winners don't fall for extremism.
Here, you dropped this:


it would seem that Protestantism is more true to scripture as it allows you to make your own interpretation of the word and allow you decide how to implement it in your life and thus make you the ultimate arbiter of your soul instead of depending on some worldly order or interpretation. Also, the Catholic worship of their saints seems pagan and reminiscent of the golden calf that god smited for being false. By all means prove me wrong if I am

Yes it is more true to scripture, but keep in mind that the Catholics and the Orthodox don't even care about that kind of thing, they have Tradition so in their eyes deviating from scripture is okay as long as it follows the Tradition.
We don't make our own interpretations, the Bible interprets itself. The Holy Spirit guides you when you read the scripture and God reveals things that you've never realized before, even after 30 years of studying scripture.

And yes, Roman Catholicism is just a revival of the ancient crypto-pagan Babylonian religion. All the Reformers knew this.

No wonder they banned the Bible - if people started reading scripture for themselves they'd realize that the Papacy is the Antichrist.

>fuck strength, manliness,
>you tell
Wrong. All kinds of POV/comparisons lead to the same conclusion. America belonging to Amerindians the same as europe belongs to europeans. That's why I ask "do you agree with european replacement?'.

I believe this is kinda easy to get, ya know?
the west invented it.
The tribunus militum were young men who had less experience and were younger than the centurions they were 1 rung above in the hierarchy. The system was set up intentionally so that "nerds" were in command and buff Chads only handled small scale practical tasks, kind of like the modern division of commissioned and noncommissioned officers.

>Roman aristocrats had something like 20-25% casualty rates
Not sure where you got that statistic from, likely during a major war. The tribunus militum were not "soy boys", that was just a bit of hyperbole. They were physically fit but that was only a small part of what made them effective leaders. They would not charge the enemy without armor like a Gaul, they studied the classics and the lessons Hannibal taught the Roman, they idolized the genius of Alexander the Great. If someone from /pol/ called them a "soy boy" for not doing so they'd just beat him up and cream his boypussy.

What are some stories about the past that your grandparents told you?
40 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
My grandmother used to tell me about how she'd make little snowmen made of tar in the summers down in Memphis, Tennessee. The days would get so hot that the streets would boil and bubble and you'd wind up leaving footprints in the road if you walked across the street.

She also apparently took off one of her shoes as a little girl and beat the crap out of a group of kids bullying her younger brother.
>Grandad is captain on boat during Vietnam
>Not much for him to do
>Goes to land precisely once, touring bases
>gets hit by Agent Orange
>gets Leukemia years later but beats it, he's still kicking
my grandfather tells me that his father during Stalingrad climbed on top of a tank and broke open the copula with a shovel and lobbed a grenade in there. Not sure if its true but seemed pretty badass
>great-great grandfather had bookshop
>very polite, very quiet young man would always come in there to browse
>great-great grandad knew he was poor as shit so would tolerate him lingering
>eventually got to know him, let him buy books on credit
>guy said he'd settle bill at end of the month
>guy came in one day, red-faced and very apologetic, saying he'd had trouble paying for rent and couldn't afford to settle account
>great-great grandad said not to worry about it, actually offered to lend him money but the guy had none of it
>guy later came back and paid tab in full, thanked great-great grandad profusely
>kept a correspondence with him for years, even wrote letters when he was in prison (big deal, since prisoners were only allowed a certain number of letters)
>sent great-great grandad a signed first edition of his book when it was published, inscription said something like 'to an honourable and good man
>it was fucking Adolf Hitler

We have absolutely nothing to back any of this up as the family burnt all his letters and the copy of Mein Kampf after the war. There's supposedly a police report when he was interrogated by the government during de-nazification that lists him as a 'personal contact' of hitler, but it's with my relatives in the fatherland.
