How much value do you put on the idea of historical agency?

Not as much as historical necessity.

What would Islamic America be like? Assume that some Mohammed sailed to it instead Columbus
Not sure about the North Murrica, but speaking of Middle and South America I'm sure it would be better. Most of the cities that have the highest rate of crime per capita, such as murder, are in South America.
Hope Mohammed brings smallpox with him because Amerindians ain't gonna put up with his shit. There were undo inability. That's why they had to be killed.
I'm sure they'd feel at home in Nevada

Blame Wilhelm. Literal autist that ruined all of western civilization, simply because 'GERMANY NUMBER 1!!!!!' Not responsible for WW1 directly, but is responsible for putting his nation on a path to war with an empire led by his own fucking Uncle.

You are replying to a discussion that started from the statement that Finland did indeed lose the war. No one is trying to argue that. It is however historically illiterate to say that "USSR got its pre-war demands, and extra." because in truth the USSR got very little of what it wanted (a Finnish satelite to curb an invasion of Russia through Finland).
>Starting a war
Im sorry?
It really tells about the quality of the discussion when someone unironically still thinks that thinks that the Finns shelled Mainila.
>hey, give us your stuff
>okay, now give us more of your stuff LMAO
when you make this type of demand it's just a pretext

If leftists had any sense they would choose a gun as their symbol on their flags instead of the stupid hammer and sickle.
Peasant revolutions before firearms weren't very successful because the knights had armour and stallions and military training and the peasants had to do with their lances.
When the gun came along it leveled the playing field.
The gun should have been the icon of the left because no leftist revolution would have succeeded without it.

Venice wanted the Asia to Europe trade. This means Byzantium's head.

And after centuries of struggling, they finally got it by doing business with the Ottomans, only for the trade to shift west with the discovery of the Americas.

>And after centuries of struggling, they finally got it by doing business with the Ottomans

the terms venice got from the ottomans were worse than those they got from the byzantines or the crusader states that replaced them in greece.
Venice had a monopoly with the Ottomans, nobody else would taint themselves to trade with the infidel.

i know there's a good chance you are one because a non-trivial number of rural and small town boomers are masons and this board is highly likely to have more boomers than nearly any other. Mason.

Hey, that was in Europe. The American War of Independence wasn't a revolution. American Masons are fine.

Any resources for learning about Zoroastrianism? Anything ranging from films to books pertaining to the religions ancient/contemporary practices and history?
go to the archives and look for the mega links posted in /his/ book threads
Where's the /his/ archive?
Some of my buddies growing up were Zoroastrianism. It’s like the Persian version of Manguu religion. They honor an ancestor. It’s all about ethnic reproduction. It doesn’t see sex as immoral but a divine right. Man are able to have as many wives as long as they are able to provide for them and the children. The religion is about having babies babies and more babies.

Which historical battles has mobility been a major factor for an army winning?
33 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.

Mongols are underrated. Everyone thinks of them as a fucking zerg rush army of morons that overwhelmed everyone
First to mobilize and send their load had better chances of winning.
Napoleonic wars
Napoleon beat coalitions that dwarfed his army by moving at insane speed and picking separate armies.
The Mongols
It was their bread and butter. Shoot arrows then run away from the pursuers and shoot arrows at them too.
Even in Alexander's campaigns, getting to a defended hill first gave his army a massive advantage.

This is both rooted in a desire for purpose and for community, both of which I lack. The difficulty is that I can't seem to find any religion convincing.

Really this. I'm not sure what it is about Christianity that drives its followers to lie so much.
Who knows, but to be fair, there is truth within their hysteric lies, whereas there is a lie within the apparent order of things.

Good morning /his/, it's been a while since I last lurked here, but I have a fun little game for you.
I'm writing a paper on Macron's 2017 UN speech and a section of it is about the non-verbal aspects of the speech.
So I'm compiling the usual nose-scratching and whatnot, but some mimics seem to come up often at key moments of the speech.
Since it's fair to say that Macron is most likely a freemason, I looked around for some masonic hand gestures info and sure enough, I found

He used iii and viii a few times. And i and v once or twice.
Problem is I can't find what the sketches mean.
