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

Just gonna point out that this show, while decent, is also full of shit. Like half the villains on the british side that the show portrays as snorting tea and wiping their knickers with their powdered wigs were just loyalist americans, and the wigs would have been falling out of style at this point anyways. Also the protagonist is a twat.

Still, it does a good job of showing what a huge part the intelligence sector of the US military played in the war itself, so that is pretty cool.

So /his/tory I'm in a bit of a bad position here.

I love history and I always was among the top of my classes, however I do not know historical dates at all.

I can tell you about the cold war but can't say the year vietnam started and ended - same with Korea.
I can tell you that WW2 ended in May of 1945 but only because I can "reconstruct" the date based on my knowledge like:
> WW2 ended in 1945 > WW2 ended with the Soviets taking Berlin > the Soviets took Berlin in May because they wanted it in time for May-Day

So how do I tackle that issue? Is there a list of dates worth learning raging from Ancient to modern times (can be Euro-centric af I don't mind)?

If your desire is to not appear foolish, then don't actually study shit up with the idea of looking smart in class. Everyone will just think you're annoying since they didn't even bother and either already know it or are actually engaging in the process of learning not memorization.

From my experience Vietnam was a flook that fell with resources. I met a man that was part of a secret war dealing in another region. He lives in a church when I was around, I hope he still does.
Took me 13 years to put all the information together. My fool and I we're fighting about ohh Vietnam was a senseless war. But really what's the worth of fighting.

Found an interesting piece that talks a bit on how the War on Drugs came about.

https://harpers.org/archive/2016/04/legalize-it-all/

>At the time, I was writing a book about the politics of drug prohibition. I started to ask Ehrlichman a series of earnest, wonky questions that he impatiently waved away. “You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

So i googled "DMT was known as yuppie crack" and came up with this cool New York Magazine article from 1995 talking about drug use in white America. (It uses the phrase "the businessman's psychedelic"). Although it's pretty anecdotal, so I don't know about an "absurd amount."
https://books.google.com/books?id=kuMCAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PP1&pg=PA40#v=onepage&q&f=false

This article is so quaint in other ways. It talks about Rohypnol as a "hot new party drug" and quotes the high times editor as saying people will get really into coca tea because "it's just a plant."

As if the concept of a nation-state can be epitomized as one legacy instead of as many legacies. In the context of all the different waves of migrants to the US and earlier history when there was a frontier. (Perhaps the once ever-enticing frontier influenced the character of rugged individualism?)

Also, why not connect the inheritance from Rome to all "western" or "global north" nation-states. Or go further, tracing it to the Code of Hammurabi, an obelisk with their god handing the scepter of power and mandate to rule to Hammurabi, with all their written laws below. Of symbolic importance in society is the height of a structure. Joseph Campbell lays it out well by comparing institutions of governance to religious sites to corporate skyscrapers, reflecting their influence over society.

There was a generalized and widespread famine throughout the southwestern Soviet union at the time, including large swathes of Russia, partly caused by the disruption of collectivisation and partly by drought. The Ukraine was given less relief, foreign relief was refused, and certain administrative actions were taken that made the famine there turn to genocidal levels, but it was already happening without them having to start it.

The Ukrainians had only had a national awakening within the last 50 years and most Russians considered them to be an integral part of the Russian nation, but Ukrainian nationalists and anarchists had been the biggest threat to the Bolsheviks and to Soviet territorial integrity in the civil war, during the early 20s an independant Ukraine was just as believable as an independant Poland or the Baltic states.

The evidence of Stalin's motivations is circumstantial and the claims are conjecture. I'm not even satisfied that there's an academic consensus about what was intentional and what was monstrous indifference. That said, crushing Ukrainian nationalism is the leading theory.

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.

It's called FUCKING GEOGRAPHY.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Russia:
>was ruled by Mongols
>serfdom abolished by 1861
>was a monarchy in 1917
>USSR
>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.

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.
