Any system that centralizes power of any kind will always result in a system that centralizes power to the corrupt, because the corrupt lack the moral prohibition against pushing against the spirit of a system in the use of its mechanisms. But the corrupt will adapt to whatever tools are available to them. Abolish wealth and they will subvert the law, abolish the law they will use brute force.

There has been corruption and authoritarianism in every kind of system, republican or imperial, trade based or agrarian. The abolition of any system at all, even by well meaning people who have mastered themselves, always seems to result in a power vacuum for those who lack mastery of themselves and who willingly fling themselves at any master, worthy or unworthy.

The antidote to dictatorial power and moneyed interests is a robust system that distributes smaller amounts of power to many different people in frustrating ways, but any such agreed upon structure could loosely be refereed to as a public thing, or republic.

The problem arises when powered interests achieve the gravity to prevent competing interests from keeping them in check, conspiring to keep the population ignorant so that the population cannot wield the tools. But this is not an inherent failing of the tools, it is a lack of expertise in doing the good work. In such cases, the republic may die. But if it must, it must be replaced by a new republic, or by corruption, or some mixture of the two.

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.

China:
>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.

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

USA:
>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.

So in the 17th and 16th century muskets used a matchlock or wheellock mechanism to fire and therefore took a long time to reload, leaving the musketeers vulnerable, so they needed Pikemen to protect them. My question is- why didn't they just attach the pike underneath the musket and turn them into Piketeers?

I mean if you attached it underneath the musket with hoops, you could move the pike along so the musket was at the centre of gravity when you fired it. And obviously if it got to close quarters you could just us the pike like a pike.

Dude, the firing mechanism wasn't the only issue. They were muzzle loaders. That means they have to stand up and pour the powder down the barrel, smush in a bit of wadding to make a good seal and help pack the powder properly, and then toss in the ball! This is also why they couldn't have anything impeding access to the barrel.

I remember reading a while ago that the New York Times was one of the earliest national newspapers to begin publishing pieces promoting the "Lost Cause" narrative of the post-Civil War era in the U.S.
Is there any real truth to this? Or were they mostly the same as other papers of their time and era?

I tried to search this subject but there are an insurmountable number of modern results regarding "New York Times" and "Confederacy"

Just finished binging s3 of Man in the High Castle. The premise is that japan and germany occupy the usa following its destruction its defeat in the 1940's. Seems pretty implausible to me as neither Germany or Japan really was that powerful. Philip K. Dick is a great author though and they did a good job on the series and ultimately he was proposing that the Americans could be just as fascistic given the circumstances and they were in no means unique. What would be a more realistic alternative ww2 history? Which is your favourite?

You mean if Germany had declare war on the SU before declaring war on France the other western powers? Then yeah I could probably see Nazi Germany and the Japanese empire surviving to this day, but once Britian and France (and possibly the US) saw Germany and Japan taking out the SU I have no doubt they would have been rearming and preparing as fast as possible in case Germany ever invaded and then I don't see Germany taking much except MAYBE Alsace Lorraine and japan just peacing out with Britian over making sure neither one messes with each others colonies post war because I really don't see japan beating Britain in the long term.

Beyond that once they had tried invading the SU after already being in a war on the western front they were fucked, no matter if the US invaded or not honestly.

If Germany declared war on the Soviet Union before securing the Romanian oil fields they would have simply run out of fuel before coming anywhere near Moscow. (this ignoring the fact that Germany would have to station dozens of divisions in the West in case the French grew bolder after the Saar Offensive and the fact that huge amounts of looted French tanks, artillery, and other assorted equipment were retrofitted for use in Barbarossa). June 1941 was the most viable date for invading School. The failure of Operation Barbarossa is in the planning and execution rather than the timing.

Hmmm, yeah I guess you're right. I never figured in the oil problems, I guess I assumed Romania would be able to hold itself until the Germans arrived but I guess that would have put the operation into jeopardy too depending on how much troops they would have to transfer from the Schooln front. Also I never calculated in France actually taking the initiative to invade Germany itself honestly. I thought the failure of Saar would have been a proponent in them not trying to invade again but now that I'm thinking about it, they honestly wouldn't have no reason not to invade Germany (especially when their preoccupied in School.)

Post a pic, maybe a little blurb about what it is, maybe tell other people how cool and good their pics are.

These are Nubian pyramids in modern-day Sudan. The Nubians (or Kushites) had a contentious history with their Egyptian neighbors to the north, existing as enemies, vassals and for a brief time, rulers of Egypt. Towards the end of the Egyptian era, the Nubians felt that Egypt had fallen from its former glory and considered themselves the arbiters of the old, proper ways.

The Kushites had their own heiroglyphic language which to date remains undeciphered.

What happened to Faye Kane? the "enthusiastic lady who hangs out naked in the woods, masturbates all day"?

Ever hear of Faye Kane? the "enthusiastic lady who hangs out naked in the woods, masturbates all day" it was an early 2000s internet thing, apparently, she was/is a genius that decided to cut all ties with society and live in the woods where she'd hoard pc parts. here's a rabbit hole for you guys.

Her entry on a website called smashwords, you can find some other links in the bottom of the post, some are accessible with the way back machine but I was unable to open her actual blog with it, I keep getting stuck at the screen that warns you that you're about to enter an 18+ blog, and most links seem to load forever: www.smashwords.com/profile/view/FayeKane

She seems to be... interested in sex, to say the least, from her smashwords article. This is confirmed, apparently she was (sexualy?) abused by her stepfather, later raped, but enjoyed it, and sought to be raped again. Disturbing, apparently there was more on her defunct blog, but I still haven't been able to access it. Also, she apparently has/had a myspace, according to the smashwords, as well as had a now inaccessible book about her rape on smashwords. Any ideas? I would like the tape.

As I was looking for her myspace, I found a kiwifarms post from 2016 with lots of valuable information. As much as I normally dislike kiwifarms, they were actually very useful. Next update will be when I delph through this plethora of content, and contact the OP of that forum, as they still may be active.

Here's what I've found so far. Might contain NSFW stuff, look at your own risk

I'm not really buying the Kiwifarms theory that she's some random old lady. The grammar and posting style of the "hostile user" the Kiwifarms sect baited out doesn't match the grammar and posting style of past Faye Kane posts you can find online. It's possible they ended up pissing off the old lady they believed was Faye Kane, but I'm skeptical that that old lady, given the significant difference in grammar and writing style compared to the archived blog, Smashwords article, and past posts on circlejerk, is the real Faye Kane. Unless she got hit by a brick or developed early dementia or something. Compare and contrast.

It's beyond fucked, a lot of cartels are starting to purchase guns from corrupt militaries in Central and South America in increasing numbers to end their dependence on US firearms that may be banned or harder to obtain. I have family down there and from what I've heard makes it obvious that the most influential and rich cartels could even begin manufacturing weapons if it came to that. They have unbelievable control in mining and construction, and already know the basics of industrial engineering from their drug experience, as well as hire engineers of all stripes.

Mexico would have to declare war on itself and have the backing of the entire international community. Millions would likely die in a bloody war that would see civilians devastated.

I feel like there is too much special interest in drugs for the cartel not to be a thing

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 Schoolns 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?

They slowly got pushed towards acting in more and more extreme ways all while having their everyday life controled by people who aimed for radicalisation. Every source of information they could get kept claiming that the jews are the source of all evil and it was an act of self defense to "stand up" to them. There are reports of SS members who didn't want to participate in executions of civilians and their officers would tell them they're letting down their fellow soldiers and blablabla comradery and in a lot of cases that was enough for them to pick up their rifle and do it.

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?
