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?

I don't. What is and how did it come to exist?

Follower of Islam certainly. One who listens to the word of Mohammed the prophet peace be unto him, yes. But what is muslim? Is it a person? A way of being?

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 ❤️ ❤️ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

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.


>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."

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."

Its really hard to no establish the concept to belittling on a mass scale without having extreme back lash later on. Sure it keeps the nature of hating, all I can think is Nixon should be the fucking worst president. If it got any worse we would literally be out of fucking control.

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.

I stay out of politics due to knowing my older brother has a growing disorder. Due to this I was just wondering why his face was always glue to a TV. If you really think this is Rome 2.0 we will all go fucking back to being a perfect fucking model to our order, or face another fucked up aeris. Which inturn allows a bigger off balance to modern era war.
In my own personal opinion all it takes is to create some little fucking sense to make it for some people. Have good "repeat the search with the omitted results included" mentalitys around.

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.

Soo my idea is if Greek wrestling. If it was the "supersport" of the age, it would be the complete desater of their modern lifestyle. I'm for a good wrestling match just know it needs to be faike. With this It should be a coveted collective. That's what makes it beautiful, like Nascar I suppose.

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.

>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?

Pretty easy to understand really.

Rich people, Russo-Ukrainians and School 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 Schooln 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
