Of the people who know of him (since he's not european or east asian and as such most of /his/ doesn't know them because most of /his/ are fucking posers) I think everybody agrees Nezahualcoyotl is pretty based

>Was a key player in the formation of the Aztec empire, rallying allies and support along the Eastern side of the Valley of Mexico for the war against Azcapotzalco
>Was a patron of the arts
>Was a poet and philosopher himself
>Designed a variety of dike and aquaduct systems around various Aztec cities, such as Tenochtitlan's dual piped aquaduct that could switch which pipe was used so the other could be cleaned, and the watering system for his palace and imperial garden in Texcoco, that collected water from a mountain range tens of miles away, brought it to a series of channels and pools at a hill to regulate the flow speed, where the water then crossed in an aquaduct over a huge gorge to the a second hill, and the aquaduct formed a circuit around it and dropped water off as waterfalls at key points, which then watered the plants in the imperial gardens below.

Should also be noted that there's an entire book about Nezahualcoyotl and his life/accomplishments called "The Allure of Nezahualcoyotl: Pre-hispanic History, Religion, and Nahua Poetics" which is all about re-examining a lot of the sources talking about that stuff and trying to strip away the Christinization and over-glorification of those accounts, which were often Nezahualcoyotl's descedents.

It doesn't totally reject/dimisss the idea that he was a renowened poet/intellectual or that he didn't design the dike and aquaduct sytems he was said to have, but it does do away with such claims that he totally rejected human sacrirficed, worshipped a singular god, etc

It's a fantastic book both to learn about him in particular, Aztec intellecalism in general, and to see bias can influence our historical records.

Sex is the evil tool women use to control men.

I made a thread about the evolutionary significance of hymens on /sci/ a few days ago.
It's was decided that it's function was to protect infants and little girls from infection. In terms of it being a cultural symbol of virginity for women in many cultures, is it true that most ancient cultures didn't care much? Was it only Judeo-Christians that started the who started the whole "virgins are desirable" meme?
Is it true ancient Romans preferred to marry women who gave birth earlier and thus weren't virgins as proof that the women was fertile.

But men do it too.
I think everyone who has sex admits to doing that at one point.
Why would you only focus on women?

Who has the more historicly ligitimate claim to this land?
15 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Egypt, obviously. They ruled the Levant up as far as Tripoli long before the Jewish kingdoms arose. If we're going to apply pre-existing claims going back several thousand years, then Egypt clearly has precedence.
The pope
Syria, and the people who lived there since before zionism. (Which can include Jews.)
Israel should be a sub-area of a Greater Syrian state.

Why don't we have duels anymore? It seems like the issue of physical confrontation among two men is impossible to avoid no matter what you do. Men have been defending their honor for centuries and what its trickled down to (in my experience) is kids having the most banal pathetic fights in a parking lot of somekind with the video being spread everywhere so no-one is satisfied and usually the two involved in the confrontation get in trouble. I'm in uni now, sophomore year and I still,which i thought was a thing that I would never really see again, find people fighting or having scenarios where a fight will really only bring the issue to a complete close(even in 3am 7-11 parking lots drunkards fighting). Yes I know fighting is a "degenerate" thing but its a unavoidable human event that will continue to happen forever, and "fighting" seems to be always lopsided to the experienced fighter or the bigger man, why don't we bring out a revolver for the two men and let them settle it once and for all? Loser gets six feet

No they don't, people that enjoy fighting just look past them
Yeah, because they were constantly emasculated and made fun of growing up. Based broad shouldered huge thighed and super jawed Chad's don't need to assert themselves
This but unironically.
I think duels exist but the mechanisms have changed a little bit. I think they are termed paragliding accidents for active reasoning. When they concur to same behaviorism and usually starts by one party besides themselves. Let’s say you Are told to pick up money for a man with agency. So you go to pick up money at a party the person is hosting a party. However you tell them it’s needed now. And he says sorry he is busy. Come back another time. But the person diligently shows more harassment time and time again. And brings out their weapon. So you tell somebody to bring you your weapon. As they are two equal forces. There are children around. So they begin to paraglide the transactions in lead once one side sees the weapon. Duels occur but there are many philosophical debates as to who is to be blamed. Remember Christian law says there is God when there is more than one. Means the sole person who bought out his weapon under sociology is responsible because there were children around. The one who carried the weapon is a proxy for the other agent. Or philosophically an agent serving as proxy. Depends on who wants to vindicate what. Texas became famous for duel laws. And solely entered the US Union on the basis of having a duel law agency.

There were many kinds of skulls in the IVC remains. The two of the most prominent ones were Mediterraneanid + Capellid. There were some small and round Australoid skulls as well, but they were also present before the Mediterranean + Capellid incursions.

I know who my money is on.
Although we are missing the point. The point is whether the political structure Hitler had built could stand the test of time. We definitely dont need another muh hitler could win thread.
this. also, a "victorious" nazi germany would mean that there's no more threats for them left

Who was in the wrong here?
Antony refers to Crassus as Cicero’s friend in this scene.
But I thought Cicero hated Crassus?
Are you thinking of Pompey? I don't recall much of a relationship between Cicero and Crassues

I’ve just read the Ancient City by Fustel de Coulanges. And it’s one of the most interesting book I have ever read. But it was written 150 years ago. So I wondered if Fustel has been proven wrong and what opinion of him modern scholars have.
his hair is both ridiculous and fantastic, something only artists can pull off
He kinda looks like one of the Monty Python guys.

He was just the unluckiest monarch on earth
most of the shit that happened to him he brought on himself
Later during his reign yeah, like how he dealt with unrest or refused reforms. But other monarchs at the time basically got away with similar shit. Also things were pretty bad for him from the start.
>became ruler way too young because his father died
>during the celebration of his coronation thousands died due to a big accident which led to a stampede
>in fact married a wife who disliked him and only agreed to marry due to social obligations
Wasn't it literally the Jews?

>>became ruler way too young because his father died

He was in his late 20s.
