It's not a single lecture, actually. He talks at lenght about Marx as someone who has presented the most important critique of society in the fourth or fifth lecture I think. In fact, the IRL students apparently even got a handout with Marx's writings.

Now, I'm not going to argue the definition of "teach". If you really think my statement is incorrect because we have different definitions, then I don't see any point in further discourse.

check out wildcat, it's a set of anarchist comics and marvel ones, so you might have to differentiate through search terms


so I found out that thomas paine had a sister that died as a child, is consistently shown with scissors, and seems to be a tailor

"At the age of 13, he was apprenticed to his stay-maker father. Paine researchers contend his father's occupation has been widely misinterpreted to mean that he made the stays in ladies' corsets, which likely was an insult later invented by his political foes."

here's the reds (socialists, who don't belong in the yellow area - yellow meaning liberalism), america, and fascism (the grey guy who was wearing a brown cloak and hiding like he was an afrikaaner), I don't particularly agree with this propaganda but I found it insightful into the phenomenon of colours as references

the third one shits class war, see political colours and note references and viewpoints, for instance the courtroom in the dark knight rises has a certain french revolution feel to it

attack on titan's a great example of the concept with giant people eating others, and if you feel like it, there's a great intro at least to tower of god on the matter, since class war is about dealing with those who rule above you and in essence climbing the tower is in the comic, and the first bit is similar to gurren lagann in a sense too although they have differences, the first thing about class war you have to understand is that for the people who rise up, they start fighting because they feel suffocated by the impositions of their masters


ah, I found a few wildcat cartoons, simple is good for an opening on a complex subject, I'm not talking about simplifying the concept entirely, but rather begin with a general premise
this is a *particularly* good one since phrases like "no war but class war" find themselves mostly supported by the anarchists, and politics, personal matters and philosophical matters all are important under a mature understanding of society in their view from what I've seen

now, I watched kill la kill after I noticed the transformers thing, and I knew someone who was as shallow and chipper as the yellow character, and they classified themselves as liberal basically, so that's how I kind of flipped out and started really associating kill la kill with class struggle once I saw this freeze frame

oh and I think I see calvin from calvin and hobbes in the picture, calvin, and hobbes the actual people might be a good reference point too, it might be good to reference a game on the matter, mass effect 3 certainly has aspect but it's a bit pre-blowup as a cultural addition, fight club's a pseudo example if you talk about the movie, but you could bring it up, and reference the beginning part about the boring job, consumerism etc etc etc, or the matrix with the leech machines, the animatrix had a good one about class war through that one short about blowing up the UN or something with an apple

What if battle:

Alexander The Great VS Julius Caesar

Who do you think was the better general? Both conquered. Both succeeded when the odds were against them. Both fought in battle (frontline commanders) who would win?

Neutral ground. Open field with hills on both sides.

Historian 14/09/10(Wed)09:06 No. 14395

Alexander was one of the four greatest military geniuses in history; Caesar was much more of a political manipulator than a soldier, and his conquests came from the fact that he was fortunate enough to command Roman legionaries, the finest army the world had yet seen. Caesar was not worthy to have carried Alexander's gloves.

Historian 14/09/11(Thu)12:20 No. 14398

So what you are saying is they would team up and rule the world?

Historian 14/09/30(Tue)12:04 No. 14429

both were great at what they did, caesar was more political and alexander was more militaristic, but alexander had some serious issues with maintenance as did caesar, both possibly got themselves killed by the people "on their side" because of it

if they teamed up, caesar would enjoy being associated with alexander the great who would receive many many troops over and above what he could have gotten for himself and for a longer period of time, don't forget that alexander was well aware of how to engage in larger overall strategies while caesar was envious of him and despaired at not having done anything at the same age alexander died since the latter had "conquered the world"

just fucking admit it, it's patton and ike without montgomery shitting things up

Do any of you study History at undergraduate level or higher, or are you thinking of studying it at this level? I would be interested, if there are any of you, to hear your experiences, what you think of your course and syllabus and whether you think it is a waste of time or useful.
I personally am in my final year of Undergraduate study and I am doing my dissertation on the Nuremberg Trials. Although I enjoy modern history, the module choices for it were poor, so I am mainly studying medieval history as well as one module on Farming and society in Victorian Britain.

Is there a lot of jobs available in book/paper preservation as far as you're aware?

Historian 14/09/24(Wed)07:09 No. 14424

I had a friend at uni who got a job at the state archives, but that was mainly because she had a few referrals from state government officials.

anything's possible I guess. But I never heard of preservationists being in super high demand. I guess the place to start looking are the larger libraries or just walk into the archives and ask the curator if you live near the capital.

Historian 14/09/30(Tue)11:44 No. 14428

a vague and general benefit probably, I've not heard of it often conferring direct benefits (although there are notable benefits but these might be more easily served by amateur research into history)

a few exceptions exist for the top of the class, people who know people when there's openings, and even these are of course, mostly for something like teaching in the field you were in

although I've never been myself

We might be dealing with 7chan's resident Grandpa.

Among his many eccentricities, he insists there's only around 4 people who post to all of 7chan, and frequently gets upset when different people's responses don't make sense in the context of a single person's responses.

Then again, it could be just another tinfoil hat wearing dumbass. The internet is full of them.

Not sure. Even if you go back to the founding of the United States, the revolution was largely led by a bunch of rich pricks who didn't want to pay taxes which they rightfully owed England

Not a single fucking thing I posted isn't delved into in greater detail in those books. If you'd actually read any of them or followed the work being done on these cultures in the last two decades, none of the shit I said would be a surprise to you.

I made a game to teach the geography of water scarcity. What do you think?

Different kinds of chocolate will be distributed around the classroom in different combinations.

If chocolate Is allocated to you hide it or keep it in the open if you wish

At the end of the game, the chocolate goes to whoever holds it.
At 20 second intervals the game is stopped temporarily
If you do not have a chocolate wrapper at this time, you die of dehydration. If you do have a wrapper, you need to give it back (to the bin)

If you have a chocolate AS WELL you can invest it back to us (research!)and you will get triple the chocolates the next time the game is stopped. If you have just spare wrappers you can give it back for double the wrappers in the next round.

I'm going to give you a while to see if the fucking enormous problem in your counter argument becomes clear to you.

Here's a hint... it has to do, with which of these groups of people, is dead and gone, and which OF THESE PEOPLE, is still VERY MUCH ALIVE AND BEING A CONSIDERABLE PAIN IN THE ASS, AND AS SUCH ARE RELEVANT TO WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW.

Jesus, it's like talking to fucking 4th graders with you people sometimes. It's all just, hear a word you know, go ahead and shout out whatever other words are loosely associated to it in your empty little brain. Fuck me I gotta get off the internet.

hi, im interested in empires

will there be no more empires? too many pesky small countries makes me sick

i am interest of things like poland-lithuana joining empires in 18th century but now in present day

hypothetically what if America and China coagulated? Could America send it's warships to Europe and hold it down while China puts a knife to the japan, korea, and the other asian countries?

also if all those shit sand nigger countries had an shred of intelligence they'd all come under one leader and become massive powerful country, but that can never happen

1980s: There has been a bomb in Oxford Street! and in the days before Al Qaeda there is only one prime suspect the U.S.A. sponsoring terrorists as always. The U.S. has sponsored every terrorist organisation in the world. One way or another throughout its short history the U.S. has attempted to kill you. Non-Hollywood history total U.S. casualties in the Second World War in Europe and Asia total: 418,500. And the Soviet Union: 28,000,000. the war began in 1939 the U.S. never declared war on Germany or Italy. The U.S. never come to the rescue of anybody Russia won the Second World War. The U.S. lost the Vietnam war and are losing the Afghanistan war. Hollywood is not history it’s fantasy.
