What actually caused the Spanish Empire to collapse and lose all of its colonies in the new world? Did they really spend much of their time conquering native settlements and raping their women? Did they really want to find gold in the new world and what would they have thought about the California gold rush centuries later if they were really there to find gold?

Also all the shitloads of silver and gold they got from brutalizing their indios slave labor caused runaway inflation and the Spanish don't know how to economy.

A little from column A, and a little from column B.

Murder, rape, rise in crime due to a collapse of traditional powerstructures, burning and bombings of villages, pillaging, famine, disease, you know the deal.

>discuss history with an American
What fuels this childish obsession with the last 800 years before the birth of Christ?
My guess is that this happens because Greece and Rome were the first civilizations that produced a large corpus of texts that can be easily accessed and read by anyone (i.e. you can read all the texts that Plato wrote, but the same is not true for some random asshole that wrote on clay tables in Ur) basically meaning that you can consume a lot of "history" without having to put any effort into it and never having to visit academia.

How do we put an end to the eternal American man child?

There are several countries whose national history have been and still is one long journey through terrible leaders, ideologies and societal problems.
I will name the worst of them and why I think like that.

>entire history is basically the common people being subjected to constant torture
>neo-confucianism (the most inhumane ideology ever conceived)
>foot binding and castration was still practiced at times when democracy either was implemented or discussed in most European countries
>near universal infanticide
>was ruled by foreign dynasties for the majority of the last millennia
Mao Zedong was just following the millennia long tradition of Chinese cruelty. Don't ever let anyone tell you anything else. But at the very least China is currently improving which is totally deserved. The Chinese have had a long and terrible history.

>was ruled by Mongols
>serfdom abolished by 1861
>was a monarchy in 1917
>after collapse of USSR, Russia turned even shittier
>nationwide corruption stems from the very top of Russian leadership
There is currently no hope for Russia. Their economy is still going down the shitter.

>long history of institutionalized corruption (lobbying) by companies
>very little working rights
>indoctrination of school children, people are brainwashed into letting companies fuck them over
>billion dollar military budget
>faux-democracy (e.i. gerrymandering, first past the post)
>both Republicans and Democrats are corrupt and elitist
>industry of propaganda (like "American Sniper")
If there are any Americans reading this then I don't know what you have been told what Europeans think about America but please know that NO western Europeans and only few eastern Europeans regards USA as anything but a poor, corrupt, miserable country.

I recently just got done watching all 4 seasons of Pic Related. This is easily the most Kino show about American History I have watched in my entire life and its actually inspired me to wanna know more about the history of the Revolutionary War since this show is all about the False Flags that happened during that time to justify the continuation of the war and the fight against Great Britain

What I am namely interested in is Dragoon Legions and Queens Rangers. I can't think of a more respectable military service job during this time. One of the worst military service jobs? Front Line Infantry those poor bastards who had to stand around getting shot at or stabbed since it took like 2 minutes to reload your firelock meanwhile a Dragooner just slices off your fucking head with his sword.

What other Revolutionary War Kino is there for me to watch I was told John Addams is also a really good micro series. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdJoxpP86TA

Pretty easy to understand really.

Rich people, Russo-Ukrainians and Russia are the boss in Ukraine. Ukrainian people are tired of living in a radioactive corrupt shithole with no jobs. They rebel.

End result. Civil war. Also, the new Ukrainian government does in Chernobyl what 30 years of post-Soviet cleanup couldn't do (because all that French gov/French nuclear industry money ended up in Russian oligarch wallets instead of being used).

>France funded a fuckload of the Chernobyl cleanup because France gets like 70%/80% of their power from nuclear, and they don't like sharing the continent with the fucking symbol of nuclear power misuse, so they want that shit cleaned up

Why on earth this is place still open? At what point does it get shut down?!


The "treatments" provided in that hellhole are illegal in every country on earth BUT the USA. The use electric shocks, but not in the way common therapy for such is applied, but as 'aversion therapy'...by strapping kids to tables and running electricity through them as a punishment. This 'aversion therapy' has left second and third degree burns on some of these kids, and not only is it legal in this country, it is court ordered.

It's illegal to do this to murderers*, but who gives a shit if it's some enthusiastic kid, right?

*And well it should be!

Another thing people don't want to know about. If I were to tell people about this they would brush it off or not believe me, if I were to show them this they would protest at having to know about it & ask why I would want to look up these things.

This is something I had assumed admittedly had long been abandoned in practice & find deeply disturbing it's continued use in the states...

When compared to non-white cultures, whites were really slow. Mesopotamians already had massive states with well organised administrations while Celts and ancient Germans were pretty much stuck in the stone age with a tribal society and bonus metalurgy. Greece wasn't important in 3.000 BC and they got heavily influenced by Egypt and Babylon (= non-white cultures). Even Rome only made it big around 200 BC when it became a super power after defeating Carthage. The greatest example of western (="white") culture was a fucking late bloomer. Look at freaking India, they also had enormous agriculture and giant cities 5 millenia ago while everybody in Europe lived in mud or log huts and there were no big cities at all. I don't think I have to elaborate a lot about Asia where major independent cultures popped up right next to each other long before the Mycenean culture died off, same with the Americas. Also the Latin alphabet was just a modification of the Greek one which was a modification of Phoenician (non-white) letters. Germanic runes can also be traced back to Latin scipt so "white people" couldn't even come up with their own writing system! "White people" had a good run for the last 300 years with colonialism, finally starting to clean up their shit instead of letting it in the streets to rot and several world wars but it's already clear that India and China will take over eventually while "white" countries will fall back into times like the 1600s with constant poverty and hunger everywhere.

Yeah, hell yeah Europe possessed an innate quality that made its people suited for conquest.


The only reason why Africa didn't have any continent spanning empires is because Africa is stratified in various climate layers. Without industrial technology, you cannot create an empire that spans multiple climate layers.

Europe is almost all just one climate layer, a minimal difference exists between the cold north, the temperate middle and the sunny south. Hell, even then the Romans were unable to cross the climate barrier to the north and just settle controlling central and south europe.

95% of military actions in (pre-industrial) history depend on climate and geography.

I don't think it's bad at all in and of itself. New governments don't start with a clean slate. They inherit the people and problems of the old order. There's a lot of terrible shit you can say about Putin but this doesn't rate.

That's only true in so far as the FBI is the US secret police organization. The KGB and the chekist police organizations it inspired like the Stasi and StB handled all intelligence functions except military intelligence but sometimes even that.

For this, I'm lumping together all covert operations. Assassinations, spying, misinformation, sabotage etc.

Spying and misinformation goes back farther than written history, so the first historical account goes back to 1274 BC.

The "Battle of Kadesh" between the Egyptian Empire and the Hittite Empire.

Muwatalli, leader of the Hittites sent a bunch of spies to the Egyptian camp posing as deserters. Two of them were able to get an audience with the Pharaoh and convince him that the HIttites were far away and they could make significant gains in territory, Of course this was a trap as they were waiting to ambush them.

Fortunately for Ramses, his forces captured two more spies and interrogated them until they revealed the ambush and Ramses was able to save most of his forces.

The Ra division got fucking hammered, but the rest of his army prepared for the fight to come and the Egyptians technically won, although it was strategically indecisive.

It ended with a peace treaty, but had it not been for the spys there could have been some very different outcomes.

Pic is of a common tactic used, a woman assassin. Because who would suspect her and she can hide some pretty decent weapons in that dress.

In terms of organized CIA-type stuff it may have started with the Assassins. Supposedly what they were doing was shocking and new and I don't see anything along those lines happening earlier. But then we are talking about clandestine activities.
Walter Winningdock - Sat, 17 Aug 2019 09:48:46 EST rbK+gS1r No.57779 Reply
I assume assassins existed before The Assassins, but The Assassins were specifically trained for their job.

Before that, important people would just give some shitfarmer with debts a knive, "Go kill that guy", and be done with it.

IIRC there was a moment in medieval Italy when it was really popular for the nobility to just hire entire gangs of hoodlums to commit murders. People would be walking down the street and they'd get ganked by 10 murderhobos with clubs and knives.

I've read some story about a Roman spy who infiltrated a celtic tribe in Northern Italy or Switzerland. He learned their language, got accepted by them and lived among them for ages until the Romans showed up and he totally ratted out everybody and probably laughed his ass off while everybody was getting killed or enslaved.

Lot o American hate on this board, I thought that we were all supposed to get along?

To counter balance that is a thread about all the good things about America. You can have a glass half outlook and it's much more productive and increases global love if we start to try to understand each other's cultures, yes including admitting that not everything about America is bad

Let's start with some good things about America
Big ol titties
Fit women
Low calorie alternative foods like baked califower
Protein powder
Gyms at apartment complexes
Independent professional women
Generosity, I worked in the charity field and Americans are genuinely quite kind an caring

Let's name some more :) and have positive conversations to overshadow all the cultural bias already in so many threads, so we can all learn and spread global love ❤️ ❤️ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
