>creating the great plains
Indeed, everyone on the internet knows the Great Plains used to be a series of mountain ranges. The Paleo-Indians came in and ground those fuckers down to a large plateau and filled it with vegetation they brought from outer space.

You seem to be stupid about a few things. Since this is the history board, I'll do better than just insulting your dumbassery and briefly summarize what the fuck I'm talking about since you apparently just look around and assume everything you see is the way it must have always been since your great jew-king jeesus made it that way for you.

As the last few decades of archaeology you haven't been paying attention to have revealed, much of the modern western deserts were forested up until the natives early attempts at large scale agriculture got out of hand and the soil was lost. Several other smaller scale experiments were tried in various places, until a proper sustainable model was arrived at... The Great Plains were the result of many thousands of constructed timber and earthen dams, into which the waterways were rerouted, and massive tracts of land at a time were flooded, cleared, small hills levelled, soil tilled and redistributed, before being dredged again, to create agricultural plantations. Worked by tens of millions of people over many centuries, & reaching its pinnacle feeding the entire population of the empire of Cahokia, then the largest empire on the face of the earth both in population and geography, utilizing resources from every area of the continent. These floodplains are the largest civil engineering projects ever constructed in the history of our species, and still feed much of the world today.

After the empire collapsed due to a catastrophic disparity of wealth, religious/economic oppression, and violent revolution, and the tribes disbanded & mostly returned to their migratory lifestyles, forests slowly overtook much of the land. When the diseased/genocidal europeans showed up and everyone was killed off, the euros clearcut the entire country for timber, from one ocean to the other, and being fairly fucking retarded at the time and catastrophically depleting europe of its timber, had pretty spotty success replanting after their clearcutting efforts. Every desert and empty plain and every forest and field of wheat (not native either, brought here by arabs) you see today, was engineered with varying success and built by people.

This is the extremely abridged most basic history of this country. How the fuck do you not know it?

How do you not know that their culture is called Mississippian? Cahokia was simply the name westerners gave to their largest city, which comes from the name of a possibly completely unrelated native american tribe who inhabited the region around the city when Europeans found it.

You're going to have to a little more specific as to what desert the tinfoil hat blog you read said they caused, since there's more than one desert in North America.

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.

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.

Slavoj Zizek doesn't know why communism failed, what are your thoughts?

Particularly i'm interested in leftist views of why communist efforts have so far been completely catastrophic. I don't really have any idea but I realise that the soviet union, maoist china or most other places which had successful revolutions installed systems that look nothing like actual what was proposed in actual communist theories.

Pls don't fill up this thread with arguing about whether or not the SU was 'true communism' - it was a catastrophe for humanity regardless of theory. Pls keep to the question, ok?

I'd suggest taking a look into the writings of Gramsci and the Frankfurt school for some of the reasonings developed by communists for the failure of Marxism. Those two perspectives give a pretty good starting point for why communism failed, at least from within the lens of Marxist theorey-craft.

>We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: 'Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.' I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.

This threat was made against the entire world because the Paletinians were uprising against them in 2003.

Yeah, good thing we're arming them to the teeth too, & funding this shit loud & proud.

It's funny, how what is "normal" for the US, is not this, not whatsoever. Post World War, USA decided it was better to be the worlds new Nazi's than wait for someone else to become them, and thought, fuck our entire approach as a nation, we can play the game of global geopolitics, did a massive 180, and jumped headlong into every squabble they could, granted extraordinary extra-constitutional wartime powers, and immediately sought to ensure a permanent state of war to make them permanent. These ambitious dicks had watched from the cheap seats France and Englands approach to pitting shit-tier countries against themselves internally and externally post WWI, and thought, hell, looks easy enough... So here we are nearly a century later, ten fucking failed overthrows later, still flooding every country and militant group in the entire middle east with unlimited weaponry and funding massive political instability everywhere possible on every conceivable scale.

Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

Even England and France who love this kind of shit, who created the borders to perpetuate the culture clashes in these very countries originally, after pretty successfully doing it to marginalize billions of people in Inda and nearly the entire continent of Africa, are still going, "ehhh monfraire, deez shizz is getteen oud of hand a bit I theenk, non? You ehhh, has a plan of some sort, yes?"

USA respons by renaming frenchfries.

Actually, Spain was the first modern European state, and it was the pressure it made over the rest of Europe what forced the others to unify themselves as well. Then everything went to shit because two good rulers in several centuries.

yeh, they're doing pretty well again, too. For the last couple years, they've been having to take increasingly extreme measures to avoid such a massive imbalance of power in their favor that they destabilize the rest of Europe.

Their economists are trying to avoid the extreme conditions that led to political activism and uprising a century ago, but much of it seems to be inherent and unavoidable in the people and culture.

Once their swinging social and economic pendulums both happen to align on one far end of their spectrums, shit will get interesting.
