So is the Islamic invasion of Europe an intentional act being perpetrated by a multitude of interest groups in the Arab world.

Or they are invading Europe because the laws are so lax, Africans are too poor to do so, and Asiatics are in their own realm.

The dude in germany getting beat up by turkish immigrants for wearing a german immigrants got me thinking. Plus this issue started late 90s and just seems to be rolling out of control.

When did war stop being glorious?

In the past people joined the war with intention of gaining honor.

I reckon it was the Civil war that really ended the glory of war. I think it has something to do when warring countries ceased to respect eachother.

War was never truly glorious to begin with. Generally power-hungry people, with a lot of influence and money, are able to paint war as being glorious. By doing this, they can get more people to use as pawns to fight wars for them.

Historian 16/04/22(Fri)06:03 No. 14851

I think the Crimean war can also be seen as the end of these glory days. Following the war Russia could no longer use religion as an excuse to invade the Balkans, so war is going to be solely for political gain if they choose to invade. Also, the letters and propaganda that returned home from the soldiers/journalists was mostly criticizing the organizations of their respective army, as well as their leadership in general. Most people began to see the atrocities of warfare at this point and knew that war wasn't as romantic as many made it out to be.

1920s Albania forum game Historian 15/07/10(Fri)17:59 No. 14675 [Reply]

TL;DR: 1920s Albania forum game. Country is very poor and backward but there's also tons of political intrigue going on, therefore it can be fun. Players can join as whatever: cabinet members, miscellaneous politicians of Muslim or Christian faith, army commanders, tribal chiefs, religious authorities, student radicals, etc.

To quote sign-in thread:
>There are no set rules or list of actions; a player sends a private message to the GM saying what he or she wishes to do that turn, and the GM makes a list of plausible outcomes and subjects them to a random number generator to see which one occurs. There is detailed information on the situation inside the country in various fields of life, from the condition of its armed forces to the state of its cultural facilities. Players will generally be briefed each turn as to how their actions went as well as the situation they are in (e.g. how soldiers under their command are doing, how their efforts to organize people in a region are progressing, and so on.)

Historian 16/01/23(Sat)17:15 No. 14837

This is still ongoing. It is currently 1931.

The same forum also has a French Revolution game GMed by someone else if anyone is interested in that.

Since the same fat cats were controlling German as they already controlled USA, it wouldn't have been much different from today. Hitler would have been assassinated and things would have slowly cooled down, with bankers, arms dealers, oil businessmen and such doing what they do. Worst case scenario Europe would be much like Middle East is today, a flaming part of earth that is constant fighting over what part belongs to who, but certainly USA soil would be much the same it is today.

The Present Political System Is Not Conducive To Good Scientifc Pursuit Nazi Icktor 15/12/06(Sun)22:26 No. 14816 [Reply]

If the present social system is non-Christian and Christianity is true then the status quo is not conducive to good scientific pursuit. I know that the United States recently made lawful homosexuality and I know that Jesus Christ exists by Kurt Gödel's and Anselm of Canterbury's valid and true ontological arguments. Therefore, the present system is not great for abundance, entertainment, or pastime of the sciences.

My credibility is that I wrote the syllogistic proof showing that The Hodge Conjecture is true. However, I haven't written a function for it. Also, I graduated high-school at age 16.

I do think that as the most superior Dinaric-Aryan-Mayan (or "German Guatemalan") of IQ 22,222 I do think that I could run the present world and its structures as dictator. Certainly the friendly dictator of The Nazi Party of Guatemala.

Argue with me.

Before I start arguing with you can you shed some light on the Guatemala Nazi party?

Is that the party uniform?
Are you currently the prime example of the master race?
Are the fly paper strips part of the mystique of the party, or are they there just to catch flies?
Are you allowed to own a cupboard or shelf in the Guatemala Nazi party?

You seem like a slack ass if you can write a proof for the Hodge Conjecture but you haven't written a function for it yet...please explain.

Please respond and I will be happy to discuss this with you.

Yeah at several points, China had gigantic fleets of enormous ships that utterly dwarfed anything the europeans had. Even as recently as the 1400s, they were on the prowl, and lucky for europe, when the chinese rounded the cape under Africa, they didn't keep going north forever, or they'd have certainly stumbled upon the french & brits taking pot shots at each other and destroyed them completely. Instead they went west and discovered murrica, discovered a shitload of cool tropical islands, made trade everywhere they could, spread goods and culture and technology and made out like kings.

Given the archaeological similarities between discovered works in the americas & elsewhere in the world, & how long there have been boats in this world, it's a pretty safe bet that individuals from everywhere have been steadily, continually "discovering" the americas ever since humans learned boatbuilding from neanderthals and set out on the water.

uhhhh...what are you talking about?


There is some evidence of Chinese contact with Western South America. A bit of pottery and chickens I think is what is boils down to. Likely following the island chains across the Southern Pacific. Not sure that would have ever been a conquest priority for them or Japan. China sat on and controlled the Spice Road the largest and most profitable trade route in history. They had no need to trade extensively with isolated island villages and extremely distant cultures on the opposite side of the ocean when they had the entire eastern hemisphere from Europe to South East Asia tied into their trade network.

The Europeans "found" North and South America by fucking accident. They were trying to find a cheaper way to trade with China and India that didn't involve all the trade middlemen between Europe, the Middle east, Persia, Afghanistan, the Steppe etc etc.

Why waste time conquering incredibly distant lands when you are too busy securing the trade network that has already made you and your ancestors incredibly wealthy, while other cultures wipe each other out trying to get cheaper or larger access to it?

If you're island government was insolvent and dependent on another country for regular multi-million dollar bailours, and you were a politician interested in fixing everything...what would you do? Country has no exceptional resources - just farm land but subject to the other countries law as an 'external territory'. I'm thinking it could declare independence and become a tax haven. I don't know if that works anymore given money laundering laws or whatever. Other options?

Aaaand you'd be wrong. But don't let that dampen your smug sense of superiority over those pesky vegans. Doesn't it just bother you soooo much when someone makes an effort to improve their lives, and you don't? Best to slag them off, and if possible, convince yourself that you know more about what they're doing than they do.
