Quick disclaimer: This thread is not intended to give the people who murdered people in the Holocaust a free-pass or to get you to perceive them in a more gentle manner. Rather it is to better understand how their psychology and emotional well being was effected by committing such terrible murders, which in turn gives us valuable insight into the human condition.

So obviously a lot of the people who murdered Jews, gypsies, gays, socialists, Polaks, the retarded, the enthusiastic, the mentally ill, and Russians in WW2 were sociopaths or psychopaths. This thread does not concern these people. Rather, this thread is concerned with how the neurotypicals who participated in the Holocaust dealt with the fact that they were straight up murdering people. I'm specially focusing on the "Holocaust by bullets". How did normies in the einsatzgruppen feel about the fact they were murdering innocent people? How scarring was it for them? How many of them became alcoholics or committed suicide after the war?

As far as I know you can't generalize much. They mostly fell in line while doing it and they mostly denied it or didn't discuss it after the war, but other than that they're all over the place.

If Western Europe is Celtic-Roman-Germanic, what would Eastern Europe be? Greek-Slav-Turkic? were Uralic people (Finns, Hungarians, Estonians) any significant part of EE heritage?

Now that we have time to really look back at history and now have more information and facts to judge certain individuals can we now accurately say that Huey Long (The kingfish) and his platform and ideas were based?

Any of his socialist leaning ideas are kind of marred by the fact he was running a corrupt as it gets tamany hall style patronage system, and his power base just happened to be the rural poor so that's who got his patronage.

He cleaned out the state bureaucracy of people installed by his predecessors putting thousands of people out of a job, he required his replacements to "donate" to his campaigns out of the salaries he felt they owed him. He used dictatorial powers and armed gunmen to hold onto power and ram through his agenda, which because his agenda helped the poor makes him feel like a hard nosed hero who'll do what it takes to fight through vested interests, but what if his powerbase was the baton rouge merchant class and the oil companies and he was using the same methods to force through an agenda that patted them on the back instead?

Personally, though I think he talked about a lot of things that are worth exploring, especially capped income 100% tax brackets, in his own words his platform was an attempt to slap a bandaid on capitalism and stave off the threat of actual communism. I don't feel like he had any ideas or high morals of his own, he had ambitions and knew which ideas to champion to get more power for himself. It was a ripe time to be a populist, ask Hitler and Mussolini.
In the end, he was shot to death by the son of a man he was trying to get fired for political purposes so he could stack the courts with hand picked judges, and his family dynasty have become the exact same class of hereditary country club politicians he positioned himself as the cure to.

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.

Europeans have never progressed beyond the colonialist/Roman mentality. They still see the rest of the world as savages barely able to govern themselves and requiring their dainty assistance.

Can't wait for Chinese hegemony.

famine...partly caused by the disruption of collectivisation and partly by drought. compounded by Soviet determination to maintain its level of exports of agricultural produce, wheat in particular, and ensure it could meet its overseas payments. For this the people starved.

I checked into this and it appears to be this:


Insofar as whether or not what you have is authentic is a different question. But that appears to be what it's based on.

I thought at first that this was fake given the silly ornateness of the chain, skull and ss. But nope that cartoonishly evil shit is real.

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.

There were a lot of cool secret weapons made during WW2 for sneaky espionage missions.

Some of them are covered on the Forgotten Weapons youtube channel, probably the best weapon channel on youtube as Ian also goes into the history of the guns.

Just read "A Failed Empire: The Soviet Union in the Cold War from Stalin to Gorbachev" by Vladislav Zubok, which covers Soviet foreign policy and political history excellently. Zubok, as far as I know, coined a term for the near-constant premise of Soviet foreign policy called "Revolutionary-Imperialist paradigm", which assumed the imminent collapse of the liberal capitalist order and that armed with Marx's "scientific theory", Soviet diplomats and statesman were superior to their Western counterparts.

I'm interested what everyone's perspective is on Mikael Gorbachev? I had always looked up to Gorbachev as a peacemaker and liberal idealist, but wowza did this book convincingly paint his tenure as characterized by chaos and naivety! After the mid-80's he wouldn't use force in practically any circumstance, whether to quell protests or defeat rebels or just bulwark the state (the only pacifistic world leader perhaps in world history). He also winged almost all of his domestic and foreign policy, often resulting in failure or decentralization due to inadequate planning.

Also, Raymond Garthoff's tomes on the Cold War from Nixon to Reagan are phenomenal, probably some of the most incisive and even-handed Cold War histories ever written.

Zubok's book corroborates that Mao's puritanism and ideological radicalism were a constant thorn on the side of the Soviet foreign policy. He suggested that Mao's China resented heavily the Soviets' international stature and how they dominated the communist world, so they'd constantly undermine (relative) Soviet pragmatism.

Hey, I'm looking for unique one-of-a-kind historical artifacts, and I was wondering if you knew of any? These are the sorts of things that are described as being "the only surviving example of..." so and so. For example:

This is a picture of the Leiden Papyrus Z, which contains the only known example of handwriting by a roman emperor (Theodosius II).

So this is the only evidence of Crucifixion from the Ancient World.

The pictures text reads as follows: "Right: The calcaneus of Yehohanon ben Hagkol, with transfixed nail. Left: A reconstruction of what the foot may have looked like around the time of death. (Image used with kind permission of Joe Zias.)"
