>"If the Nazis won you would all be speaking German"

Would we really though? Would Germany really be so powerful and influential to make that happen?

Their agenda
We would all still be speaking our native languages but German might become the international language.

There would be no Jewish hollywood and record companies spreading degeneracy and nig shit around the world.
In nordic countries your first foreign language used to be German until WWII ended.

Historically speaking, the modern state of China is just a larger version of what they’ve always been, a paper tiger. They become a massive powerhouse and often completely fuck up and collapse back to nothing in order to become a massive powerhouse once more the cycle of paper tigerhood. It’s worked for the last couple thousand years frankly. But it does make me wonder, what would need to happen to make that not work anymore? What would need to happen to such a paper tiger society like China that would be impossible to bounce back from?

>inb4 /pol/
Yes I’m well aware, but I’m going into this not the way they do, but as an anthropologist who is expecting the paper tiger to fall yet again at some point because it always has. China has always been in that cycle. And I’m curious what would need to happen, based on what we’ve seen in history, to make it permanent or even to completely break free of that cycle. Why does it even have that cycle in the first place?

That's not really what a paper tiger is.

As for the core of your question, nuclear weapons. Just imagine the Chinese warlord that got his hands on nukes. The only thing that would save China would be multiple warlords with nukes with sane advisors in three kingdoms style.
>what would need to happen to make that not work anymore? What would need to happen to such a paper tiger society like China that would be impossible to bounce back from?

permanent balkanization. but China always seems to reunite in the same general area
thats kind of what happened starting the 19th century as the Manchus lost control of peripheral areas and Europeans came in, and the subsequent Warlord Era. divided they fail
maoist china criticized stalin and kruschchev for not using nukes offensively in war against capitalism. they’re insects with zero regard for human life, as liveleak amply demonstrates

> If you were a male slave and you had a female master who demanded sex from you, what were you supposed to do?

Obey her, unless you wanted to get whipped or at least demoted to back-breaking farm work.

But while White masters fucking Black slave girls was common in the South, a White mistress fucking a Black male slave ran the risk of getting pregnant and that would have been just short of death sentence for her (and might have even resulted in her husband killing her and being let off off the hook by the courts).

Of course she could have the Black male slave go down on her and/or fuck her in the ass but even then, she ran the risk of discovery but I wouldn’t be surprised that older post-menopause White mistresses (especially if widowed) kept a young buck around to pleasure them.

What actually happened in communist Mongolia during it's existence between 1921 and 1992?
I feel like it's a remarkably ignored communist state, and pretty special considering it being the first soviet puppet state already since days of Lenin, an Asian country with an originally mostly nomadic Buddhist population and hundreds kilometers away from any non communist country since the founding of the PRC.

The Sovietization of the country.

So much so that Mongol Culture can be found in China nowadays where the Mongs were spared the excesses of the Cultural Revolution due to their status as a Minority.
Monks were immediately shot
Barely anyone was actually sent to gulag.
They just couldn't be bothered
they had their own version of the Great Purge


a degree of industrialization/urbanization during the communist period, hence the commieblocks throughout the country

What was the life of a cowboy like? They always seem to romanticize everything nowadays and I would like to get a real thorough, rough view into what their life usually consisted of

How reliable are Roman historians? I've been told that their accounts on history tends to be biased at best and propagandist at worst. Is it true?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Of course it's true. How young are you?
Suetonius is considered quite accurate for Augustus and Tiberius, despite writing 100 years later. Obviously there are some exaggerations
He absolutely despised Caligula.

He didn't just pick the shit out of thin air he went to sources. He visited the House of Augustus to notice how he lived in moderate living standards preferring a simple bed and blanket etc
They are true most of the time. People used to think Celts/Germanics sacrificing people was just propaganda until they actually found plenty of archeological evidence of that.
>"The legacy of Rome, then, to the world, so far as her own early history is concerned, is a mass of fable, fact and fancy, inextricably interwoven, and commended to us by all the charm of Livian rhetoric."
Samuel Platner

>"The opposition between the Classical and the modern outlook [of history] is sufficiently illustrated by saying that Roman history as known in Caesar's time was substantially a forgery, and that the little that we know has been established by ourselves and was entirely unknown to the later Romans."
Oswald Spengler
History was written by the aristocratic class, so they had their interests in mind when writing. Its why they were more likely to use gossip and slander when writing about Caligula or Nero for example. Some like the 12 Caesars are basically propaganda but useful nonetheless.

Why is Su Nuraxi and Nuragic civilization in general rarely talked about?

Because the infinitely more impactful Roman civilization has understandably overshadowed them.
That being said, I do like their towers a lot.
is this just a euphemism for sea people
Because sheep secretely control Sardinia and they sunk every ship that tried to sail there until the 18th century, then dressed up as humans (which is why Sardinians do not cluster with anybody to this day) and installed a puppet king in Piedmont.
>no abundance of natural resources

well thats bullshit, they clearly had STONE. and no way any community is able to dedicate that much time/effort to building something big without the resources to support them (such as easy access to food)
No particular abundance =/= absolute scarcity

>The title of the journal, Der Eigene (The Unique), refers to the classic anarchist work Der Einzige und sein Eigentum (1844) by Max Stirner. Early issues reflected the philosophy of Stirner, as well as other views on the politics of anarchism. Der Eigene was the first gay journal in the world, published from 1896 to 1932 by Adolf Brand in Berlin.

I'm not sure if this is the right board, but I'd like to ask if there is a possibility of English phonology being misanalyzed,with English actually having many consonants and only few vowels, like Cherkess, for example?

It has an odd vowel system with great many glides and di/triphthongs, something common in languages for the surface vowels in consonant heavy langauges, but uncommon otherwise.

The vowels are highly unstable, with vastly different pronunciations in different dialects, which are not only easily mutually comprehensible, but the difference is perceived merely as an" accent", suggesting the vowels are indeed more prosodic than actually phonemic.

Even native speakers cannot syllabify words easily, unlike most langauges where native speakers perceive the syllables as obvious and unambiguous, while in English it seems as if the consonants were the nuclei (nucleuses?), instead fo the vowels.

It seems that I sound more native and natural when I concentrate on the consonants and mostly ignore the vowels.

What do you think about this?
