>How the #Japanese government destroyed 80,000 Shinto shrines in the Meiji era. https://tfg.li/stateshinto

https://www.tofugu.com/japan/state-shinto/

>That wasn't the end of it. Shrines with long histories were transformed from celebrating local heroes, legends, or natural spirits to celebrating whatever had propaganda value to the state. So the shrine that paid respect to a powerful tree for a hundred years would suddenly be paying respect to a war hero with no connection to the original shrine.

>Finally, in 1906, the Imperial government announced it would only provide funds for one shrine per village3. That one shrine usually reflected state interests.

>You might think Shinto would have experienced a revered or elevated status during this time, but instead, it was blighted and under siege. During the Meiji era's most aggressive wartime expansion, 80,000 local shrines disappeared4, consolidated into those that followed state guidelines. (For some perspective, that's the total number of Shinto Shrines in Japan today.)

There was never such a thing as "western roman empire". There was an empire with two emperors, and eventually one of them got fired by germanic foederati and only one emperor remained. On the other hamd, the term "eastern roman empire" may be a synonym for the "byzantine empire", as the seat of power was transferred by Constantine to the east (so western parts can be considered as part of ERE since 330, some of the were later reconquered by Justinian, but ERE didn't magically appear in 395. "Western empire" was never an entity and I am getting tired of the retarded narrative.

The Amazing Spiderman #1

March 2, 1757. Robert Francois Damiens was condemned in Paris, "to make honorable amends." He was brought in a tumbril, wearing nothing save for a smock, and carrying a torch of burning wax in his hand. The scaffold stood on the Place de Greve. Pincered at the breasts, arms, thighs, and calves, his right hand holding the knife with which he allegedly perpetrated the crime, he was to be burned on the hand with sulfur, doused at the pinion points with hot oil, molten lead, and burning resin, and then to be pulled apart by four hourses before his body was burned and scattered to the wind.

When the fire was lit, its heat was feeble enough to only single Damiens's hand. But then one of the executioners, a burly man, grasped the metal pincers and twisted and turned them to rip out huge chunks of flesh, leaving gaping wounds that were doused from a red hot spoon. Between his cries of pain, Damiens yelled "Oh mon Dieu, aide-moi!" The spectators were moved by the compassion of an aged priest who offered him solace.

The clerk of the court, Sieur de Breton, asked Damiens if he had any final words. He said that he did not. The final operation lasted long enough, for four horses were not enough. A team of six horses was deployed and still did not succeed. The executioner asked if Damiens should be dismembered but the clerk ordered them to try again. The confessors drew closer and Damiens said "Embrassez-moi, messieurs." One of them kissed him on the forehead. After two or three more attempts, the executioners got out knives and hacked off his legs. They believed him to be dead. But when the body had been pulled apart, his lower jaw was still moving, as if to speak. The last pieces of flesh were not consumed until 10:30 in the evening.
>>
Damiens was condemned to die for attempted regicide. His immediate family were expelled from France, his brothers and sisters told to change their surnames, and his house was razed. Damiens's crime? He had lept onto the carriage of King Louis XV and gouged him with a small knife, leaving little more than a paper cut. He muttered some complaint about Parliament. Damiens made no attempt at escape and said he just wanted to scare the king a bit. Today he would likely just be committed to a mental institution.

Judicial torture had been accepted practice since antiquity. St. Augustine called it unfortunate but necessary. But Robert Damiens was the last such person to die this way in France. Shortly afterwards, a Milanese, the Marquis Bonesana, published a tract titled "De delitti i delle pene" (On Crime and Punishment) where he argued that torture was cruel and not a deterrent to crime. Widely translated, with a preface by Voltaire, it stimulated reform across Europe and increased opposition to capital punishment.

Why has America historically granted its imperial possessions and satrapies so much autonomy? Is it the Mongol business model?

>I was thinking the other day (I’m Canadian) about what might occur if, say, Canada decided it wanted to quit NATO, NORAD, PJBD, and instead become security-allies with China.
There would be no way for the U.S. to stop this, though in today's world at least I imagine such a move would be very politically painful for the people pushing for it because lots of Canadians would become scared about the direction the country is going in, and it would wake a lot of people up. They are very pro globalist so they don't like leaving important organizations like that for no reason.

I would imagine that if all that really happened, you'd see China trying harder to economically dominate Canada (it already is doing so), kind of like how it attempts to economically punish and coerce nations like Australia who are more in the crosshairs right now. That's what I imagine would happen. I don't think the Chinese elite would treat Canada as an equal partner even if that's what they wanted or were expecting for, it would be more of a "we're controlling you, so do what we say" kind of thing than what people are probably used to. That's just my guess as to that hypothetical situation.

Mannerheim is revered in Finland for many good reasons, most notably from how he successfully led the country through its Civil War and WWII. One thing that intrigues me about him though is how he was a pro-Imperial Russia monarchist - it seems like a bit of an odd disconnect with what he's remembered for.

Not only did Mannerheim participate in Tsar Nicholas II's coronation, but they were reportedly decent friends as well. Apparently throughout WWII Mannerheim even kept a photo of Nicholas II on his desk, since he valued him as a leader and his social relationship with him so highly. This seems rather odd to me though, given that it was Nicholas II's Russification policies which angered and turned Finland against Imperial Russia.

Obviously Mannerheim's staunch opposition to communism makes sense, as it was the Soviets who murdered not only the Tsar whom he liked but many other aristocrats and 'whites' like Mannerheim himself, who was of a noble family background. Mannerheim leading 'white' Finland throughout the Finnish Civil War makes sense, especially since 'white' Finland never truly rebelled against Imperial Russia. But Mannerheim having his reverence for a man who sought to strip the semi-autonomous Finnish state of its rights and privileges and who sought to turn the population into Russians... it seems kind of odd to me that he's upheld still today as 'the greatest Finn', especially when you consider the fact that he could barely stumble his way through a sentence of Finnish.

>Mannerheim had a personal disdain due to his loyalty to Imperial Russia.
Mannerheim had other more serious reasons to have distaste towards Nazi-Germany, its leadership and Germany in general. For one thing society and ideology of Nazi-Germany was totally incompatible with his whole family background and education as part of pre-WW1 European aristocracy. He also had less than positive experiences about German political influence. He had been against Finnish government asking German help in form of troops during Finnish Civil War - likely both because he wanted Finnish White Army to win the war on its own and because he knew that that German help would come with a steep price The price turned out be Finland almost becoming German protectorate and Mannerheim choosing to rather resign from position of commander of Finnish Armed Forces rather than accept position as subordinate of German general.

While he apparently tried to remain professional and diplomatic towards the Germans during Continuation War, there were cases in which he could not avoid opportunity to misbehave - most famous of which was in his 75th birthday burning cigar in Hitler's presence in a train car, even if he had been informed that Hitler hated tobacco and smokers.
>>
>>16648620
Their casus belli was it was the "continuation war" so they were only going to take the land that the Soviets occupied. To go further would have turned it into an offensive war. In their view they have already "won" by having retaken the occupied territory.
>>
>>16654055
And that was utterly naive, because simply retaking that territory wouldn't have brought the USSR anywhere close to defeat, and you cannot claim land from your enemy without actually defeating them

The nazis weren't religiously anti-semitic so they wouldn't care about synagogues. What they cared about was if you were racially a Jew, so if you were Finnish but Jewish religiously that wouldn't mattered. In Georgia they apparently determined that since the Jews there were Karaites and so didn't follow the Talmud this meant they were converts who didn't have a talmudic tradition from having had Jewish ancestors and so weren't racially Jewish according to the Nazis.
