This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

This was about three months so sadly no. It wouldn't surprise me if he was telling the truth though. In cities, the SD and Gestapo might've been a bit more restrained for fear of causing a riot, but in rural areas, they were free to be as utterly merciless as they wanted as demonstrated by the Putten Raid.

In my opinion, the problem with architects is that they consciously decide to disregard popular aesthetic preference because they believe they know better. They know that most people don't like their aesthetic ideals. I really don't think they see themselves as being in service of the public, which is a shame, because they impose their will on the public by literally shaping public space. I think their conceit is vainly believing that people will come around to their superior sensibilities just through exposure, because there's really no effort or even the language for them to argue their points with the public.

Rejecting "traditional" styles is sort of a dogma in the field.

Here's that Frankish Empire 2.0 you ordered bro.
>The Aachen Treaty, which will be signed on January 22 and approved by both nations’ parliaments on the same day, lists more than 60 projects for strengthening Franco-German cooperation, including “a cross-border employment agency, an investment program for the border regions, joint research programs, and a common investment fund for start-ups.[...]”

>The treaty calls on the regions around the Franco-German border to form “euro districts.” Some critics have claimed that the merging of public transport networks and utilities in French and German towns are a loss of national sovereignty. From the German-French perspective, however, it is a gain of European sovereignty.

>In the future, Germany and France “intend to speak with one voice in Brussels, drawing up common positions before pivotal European Union summits in an effort to make the bloc a more decisive power on the world stage,” the Times reported.

>With Britain leaving the EU, Germany and France are by far the strongest economies in the bloc. If the two agree on an issue, no one will be able to stop them.

>In other words, Germany and France seek to establish a European empire. Merriam-Webster defines empire as “a major political unit having a territory of great extent or a number of territories or peoples under a single sovereign authority.”

>That is also exactly what French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire called for last November when he said the EU needs to become a “form of empire.”

>Countries who don’t like this will soon no longer have a say. They will either have to conform, leave or be kicked out.

I live in aachen and we already did merch which the Belgians.
That means you can ride the normal bus over the border. It works bc more busses and shit

>Germany and France “intend to speak with one voice in Brussels
As i recall the EU got an rather strong veto system which blocks all progress on regular basis

But this Franco-German bloc is a good thing (in my mind).
Historically France always wanted german to pay more to the EU so we can give it to other countrys, most likly southern europe.
Berlin was always opposed to these bc why should we pay fpr spain and greece.

Fuck Woodrow Wilson. Motherfucker. If I could travel back in time to kill one person it would be him. Hope he rots in hell. Germany would have won World War One and the world wars would have ended. This dude also helped create Israel. Thanks Wilson.

A peace discussion that would have done fuck all, discussions would take place. German demands would be too much because they drastically over-estimated themselves and their armed forces and the superiority of the German nation economically and such.

They did hold the Greek cosmology, and not the biblical cosmology, but geocentrism is one point where they both overlap, and they made sure to use scripture whenever they could.

The official statement of the Church, which banned not only Galileo's work but all works advocating the Copernican system was that they were a "false Pythagorean doctrine, altogether contrary to Holy Scripture".
