My point is that if you can get a cow up a terrace, you can get a wheelbarrow up a terrace.
Also, if you're pulling the plow yourself, you probably want a wheelplow.

How is the Chinese terrace farm any more or less natural than the farms that don't necessitate destroying a mountain to build?

this is a non-sourced story, but where I live there's a particularly out of place hill in the middle of town. Back in the wild days (this is the Pacific Northwest to give you an idea) there used to be a lot of cougars on that hill. The town hired one man to hunt and kill them all, which he accomplished in a few months or something. He liked to drink a lot, however, so after killing all the cougars and being unable to find works elsewhere, he drank himself to death. In the process of killing the cougars he also killed himself.

It's a little too storybook for me to believe entirely, but it's a local 'history' none-the-less. There's a statue of him and a cougar, looking up at the sky together, with a bottle of booze at his feet.

The Bloody Benders were a family of serial killers who owned an inn and small general store in Labette County of southeastern Kansas from 1871 to 1873. The family consisted of John Bender, his wife Mrs. Bender (later referred to as Kate, Sr., since no one knew her given name), son John, Jr., and daughter Kate. While Bender mythology holds that John and Kate were brother and sister, contemporary newspapers reported that several of the Benders' neighbors have stated that they claimed to be married, possibly a common law marriage.

They are believed to have killed at least a dozen travelers before their crimes were discovered and the family fled, with their fate uncertain

The usual methodology behind death by firing squad, is no one shooter would know if the bullet that killed was his own. Indeed, there was often one rifle with no bullet in the chamber. There was always a chance that the shooter would avoid being the tool of state sponsored murder.

With the NKVD shit was completely different. Awakened in the middle of the night, taken into a dark dead end room and tapped once in the back of the head. A single gunman, a singular responsibility.

NKVD were some dark ass mofos.

Looking on a few good books on Imperial and post-Imperial Japan.

More specifically, something that covers :

  1. Japan from 1900-1945 (covering economic, social and political issues, hopefully something that talks about the econmic factors that drove them to war),

2. What war time Japan was like economically, socially, politically, etc

3. Something about the Japanese occupation of China (including Manchuria and the more fucked up stuff that happened in Nanjing)

4. Something about post-imperial Japan, how US neocolonialsm affected Japan in the years after the war, etc.

If you could hit me up with some PDF's that would be chill af. Thanks for your time

The English market commanded a better price. The English demand for grain and beef meant to maximize profits, landlords would sell all their produce to Britain. Never mind that the Irish are hungrier than the English, the Irish don't own land or currency, their lives worth less to the British crown than a sack of grain.

The Irish depended on the potatoes, because it was the sole plant that was not profitable to export, therefore potatoes that were grown in Ireland, stayed in Ireland.

The famine was a bumper year for other crops in Ireland. Ireland was the breadbasket of the UK.

People have made it their full time jobs to go out hunting for these animals and bringing them by the pound to government areas in return for ransoms.

An introduced species is only invasive when it starts to hurt the economy/ ecosystem. Economy aside, the ecosystem being harmed is a very "so what" situation. As bad as it sounds, not all species were supposed to still be alive. Of course, we shouldn't purposely eradicate species like Passenger Pigeons or Dodos... But there's a line.

Why didn't they occupy it with their surprise attack? strategic position, relatively low resistance (I would guess)

If they managed to get a large enough force there. This is rather doubtful given the Burmese Jungle and the almost complete lack of roads in Northern Burma. The forces they historically committed there were about as large a force as they could have reasonably supplied and even then they often suffered serious supply problems do to the poor terrain and climate.

I think maybe we knew about it.

But the extent of the attack perhaps we underestimated, they destroyed enough of our fleet where they were able to survive for many more months than they would have otherwise. They controlled such a large area because of this, but perhaps their greed got the best of them because they spread themselves over too many small Philippinean islands, the biggest landmass they ever had was Thailand, and they knew this.

Without colonialism, we have:

Granted, it'd be nice if they could ease off colonialism slowly unlike countries just forcing off their technologically/culturally/socially superior rulers within 5 years. India and South Africa could've REALLY benefited from a slow release on Imperialism so they don't end up in shitty squalors like they are now.

Keep in mind that the Sino Campaign had a death rate of around 1:10 for the Japanese: Enemy. They were used to pile-driving the fuck out of any fellow slant-eyes but knew that round-eyed forces were to be reckoned with (Commonwealth and Americans stationed there were annoying as fuck for them).
Losses in the Burma Campaign had the Shogunate (fuck, i love that word) change plans and head Eastwards to conquer the area that is more easily taken over and would put them in prime control of the Pacific. It also cut off any possibility of Australian advantage and they were the more technological advanced commonwealth country.
Besides, the Gurkhas aren't people to take lightly

Inspired by Manetho the Historian's threads. With this I hope to cover the Russian Revolution, struggles in the party, the history of the Soviet Union, and brief sections on the Comintern and other international communist shit.


1860's-80's-Nihilist movement dominates Russian revolutionary factions, interests held in the peasant masses but largely comprised of students and the children of the aristocracy, series of assassinations leading to the killing of the Tsar in 1881, Piotr Kropotkin notes in is autobiography they had a tendency to wear all black and discuss German philosophy (not important, just interesting)

Narodnikism appears around this time, main ideology of the Nihilists.

1892-famine in the Volga region and across all of the grain producing regions of Russia, Russian Government neglects to address it and hundreds of thousands to millions die, mass anger at the government leads to various Marxist, socialist, agrarian, and anarchist movements springing up.

-1893 Due to a mass exodus of Russian political exiles to countries like France, Switzerland, and Britain, a number of revolutionary organizations abroad spring up (for you anarchists, this is where Kropotkin really comes into play), in Switzerland a group called the Emancipation of Labour is founded by a group of Russian Marxists, including Vladimir Lenin

-1898 Russian Social Democratic Labour Party founded, bringing together Marxist and other left wing revolutionary factions into one party, similar to other early European Social Democratic parties, including the revolutionary groupings founded abroad.

If Stalin were alive, this is likely what would have happened to OP.

This thread is top-notch, easily the best I've seen on /his/. While I'm guessing OP won't be coming back, may as well keep it going in his honor.
