Linguists are still trying to figure out the details of that. They don't always agree with each other about how the branches of such a tree should be connected because it's not always easy to tell which features of a language come from within and which are from mixing with other languages.

The Last Letter

I feel deeply honoured and privileged to have been chosen to become a member of the Army’s “Special Assault Unit,” which embodies the glory of Japan. Having read logic and philosophy through my somewhat extended student life, I am sure that, based upon the idea of reason, triumph of liberty is inevitable to me, although I might sound like a liberalist. As stated by Croce in Italy, it is a universal truth that it is absolutely impossible to exterminate freedom, which is a fundamental human nature, and it will eventually win even though it seems to be temporarily oppressed.

It is a clear fact that authoritarian and totalitarian regimes may sporadically prosper, but they ultimately will perish. We can see the truth of that in the Axis governments. As manifested by the defeat of Italy under Fascism, not to mention Germany under Nazism, authoritarian governments are disappearing one after the other, crumbling like buildings without a foundation.

I believe that the universality of truth will eternally and permanently prove the greatness of liberty as is now being verified by reality and just as history has shown in the past. I will be more than delighted to find that my belief has been proven right even though that turns out to be a disaster for our nation. The current struggle, whatever it is, stems from ideology; and the result of a struggle can readily be predicted by the belief systems upon which the struggle is fought.

The ambition of making my beloved Japan become as mighty an empire as Great Britain has faded away. If the leading positions in Japan had been held by those who truly love Japan, my country would not have been driven into the situation it faces today. I have been dreaming of the Japanese people proud of themselves no matter where one may be in the world.

What a friend of mine once said is true: a pilot of the Special Assault Unit is merely a machine. He just steers the apparatus. He is only a molecule within a magnet that sticks fast to an enemy aircraft carrier, possessing neither personality nor emotions.

If one thinks about it rationally, this act is incomprehensible and, to try to put it in a plain expression, these pilots are, as they say, simply suicidal. Since I am nothing more than a machine, I have no right to put my case forward. However, I only wish that the Japan that I dearly love will someday be made truly great by my fellow citizens.

Even if the US liberty isn't pure liberty, it's still better than the more explicit imperialism they defeated.

No it isn't. The explicit Imperialism was better, now they are facing extinction via low birth rates because they feel like they have nothing to live for. The old society they had possessed balls.

The sexualization of little Asian girls, especially Japanese, Korean, and Thai, is honestly so revolting. These girls can’t even wear their school uniform without being turned into some Western dude’s Lolita fetish. And you know what, “fanservice” anime where the girls are tiny and innocent but still highly sexualized doesn’t help the problem. It’s not “just a cartoon” because media doesn’t exist in a bubble. It contributes to the harm of real little girls because Western men go overseas to rape young girls who are being trafficked precisely because of the prevalence of this fetish through media. Stop the sexualization of innocence, school, and youth and let these girls have a childhood without gross adult men getting off to them.

What is more effective?

>Punching Nazis/Alt-Right/Anti Anti-Fa


>Raping Nazis/Alt-Right/Anti Anti-Fa


OP is of the opinion that raping them is more effective as a certain percentage of them will just an hero after having their prostate stimulated and milked + other Nazis/Alt-Right/Anti Anti-Fa men will no longer stand alongside other men they know have been overpowered by other men.

This effectively can dismantle any organization so long as you overpower those who are seen as leaders by theirfollowwrs or peers

So, would you read a book featuring rape of nazis like this? >>764912

Closet Furry 17/05/02(Tue)19:07 No. 765046

I once rented the wrong DVD and ended up watching a bunch of nazis get raped to death by their own rape machine.

The rental store near my place doesn't distinguish between professional productions or home-made, self-published handicam films. I think they just take everything in some catalog with a title similar to what they want and give no shits. I was looking for Iron Sky.

They have a half-dozen or so absolute shit looking alien and preadator knockoffs as well, all grouped together with the real films as if they were all the same franchise. I'm kind of tempted, but these look like something even worse than MST3K's collection.

Obviously, something gruesome or embarrassing happened to this rabbit and it was burned to hide the grim nature of its demise.

Dreads as a Symbol of Black Culture
When non black people in the modern west wear dreadlocks, they are appropriating an aspect of black culture. This is a microaggression. Dreads and other natural hairstyles are undeniably deeply connected to black culture, and are therefore seen as a negative trait because of institutional racism. Black people lose jobs over this. They lose credibility in some cases. Non black people do not face the same consequences for having dreadlocks, and do not have the same cultural context to dreads. It is appropriation and harms the black community.
Black people straightening their hair is assimilation. Because of the aforementioned institutional racism and eurocentric western ideals, natural hair is not widely accepted. Therefore, black people often straighten their hair to assimilate (fit into, be accepted as part of, etc) into western culture. Straight hair is not deeply connected to nonblack culture, and does not have the same cultural context as dreads. It is not symbolic in any way to non black people, and if anything has been used to distinguish us from black people and further categorize society. Therefore it is not a microaggression or appropriation. It is assimilation and is not damaging to non black communities. Negative repercussions or discrimination for naturally straight hair is nearly unheard of.
Dreads and other black natural hairstyles are not a cultural norm. They are seen as untidy or dirty. This dates back to slavery and continues today. Dreads are and have been connected to black people in America because they form naturally with textured black hair, which is a unique trait not found in other hair types. Also, hair has been used as a way to "other" people. This happened with red hair and continues to happen with black natural hair. As a species, humans like to categorize and generalize people and things, and that is the heart of institutional racism. That is why dreads in many places are not allowed, or why French Muslim girls may not wear hijabs to school. When a non black individual dons dreads in America, they do so despite this context. They are not judged as harshly for their hair. They do not face the same stereotypes that black people face.
One might argue that nonblack individuals who have dreads are also judged negatively by mainstream society. While this is true, these stereotypes exist because of the connection with black hairstyles to exoticism (like afros, "voodoo magic"/witch doctor stereotype) and also to negative racial traits. Before the 1960s, dreads and afros were worn exclusively by black people. It wasn't "in vogue" so to speak for non black Americans to wear them. Now that there's a certain disconnect between dreads and black people, the negative connotations with dreads would extend to other races as well. The backlash against dreads has racist undertones, and would definitely affect non b Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Im a leftist(real leftist, not a liberal capitalist) and kinda PC, but I dont understand this cultural appropriation thing. To me it sounds racist, nationalist and separatist to tell people that they have to stick with the culture they were born into, even going as extreme as to tell what kind of haircut you are allowed.

This is like those feminists who slutshame other women, its turning the original idea completely upside-down.

I think the problem is that you've put more thought into this than they have. All they know is they have a preconceived idea and will use any and all rationalizations to justify it by whatever moral system they claim to live by. Racists claim to not be racists, Feminists claim to not be sexist, but won't put in any actual effort to not be either.

Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it, and the last time these people encountered history it was in a textbook flying right over their heads.

Hiya 7chan!

This months full flower moon has already started at 5:42 EST. The moon should rise at 8pm and if the night is clear, it should be a beautiful sight!

During this time, there have been studies that show increasing fertility and many cultures believe that now is the time to act on passions and desires! Err.. Perhaps you shouldn't throw your head TOOOO far to the wayside. ;)

I will be leaving on Monday for a little less than a month to see the UK. England, Wales, Scotland and then meet up with my sister in Salzburg, Austria again for a week before flying back home.

How do you like traveling? Isn't it much nicer going on the shoulder seasons before or after the summer crowds? Lets hope the weather cooperates!

Have a wonderful night and enjoy the full Flower Moon! :)

I sort of do, but yes! I will be going down to Cornwall. Thank you very much for the reccomendation! Its right up my alley in some ways. I am soo going to make that a priority! Thank You! I have been using certain plants for cosmetics the last few years just to see if it worked. Me and a friend are going to try to grow monkshood, wolfsbane (lol werewolves), columbine and some other things. Its hard to grow they say.

So yeah, Other than the main touristy reasons to spend time down there, I want to go to Port Isaac because they filmed Doc Martin there and it might be fun!
