To my understanding, wasn't he often attacked for being a former Catholic, constantly fought with Parliament, was accused of being a homosexual, and was almost assassinated with the Gunpowder Plot? Granted, it's not as bad as what happened to his son.

Yeah, I never really hear much hate. Even from anti-Unionists, it's rarely against him, just against the Union.

They always start small. Always. It’s nothing special. Before Persia became an empire it was a region within the Median Empire’s control. And before that, Media was a small region within the Elamite Empire’s control. And before that, Elam was a small region within Sumer’s control.

every major Iranian city except Shiraz was sacked and burned to the ground. The Mongols even managed to break past the Alborz mountain range which took the Muslims 2-3 generations to achieve.

When you sack all the major cities and you depopulate them by 70%, killing off artisans and burning down institutions, and returning farm land to pastures and letting the qanat system go into disrepair, you will generally bring down an entire civilization.

Iran went through the invasion of Timur roughly 200 years later. Then there was the Afghan rule and Nader Shah's wars in the 1700's all this shit was depopulating Iran and losing all progress over and over. By 1900, Iran was considered one of the poorest countries in the world and had a population of roughly 10 million

How long would the Achaemenid Empire last if it weren't for the Greeks and Alexander?
18 replies omitted. Click here to view.

>>6458843
Not very long as putting down revolts was what the last true emperor before Darius kept doing, the officials were constantly killing the emperor and his family to find a good puppet, and Darius was not popular whatsoever and only reigned for 2 years before Alexander showed up and in those 2 years he was getting shredded from his vassals.

Alexander's empire didn't destroy the Persian one. It was a continuation of it. That's why everyone knows the Achaemenid Empire as simply a stage of the Persian Empire. No one talks about "the Achaemenian Empire".

>>6479489
He wanted to continue it. He took the Shahanshah title, and he was a huge Persophile, adopted Persian customs and dresses and generally seemed to see Greek culture as lesser to Persian but after his death, his successors didn't think like that.

An extremely strong and hyper aggressive species that lives in the howling wilderness during the ice age and whose diet consists of 90% meat and who hunts that meat up close with stabbing spears, is probably not going to be very friendly.

It is only a matter of degree.

There is nothing of nature or of artifice that is, inherently to it's object, fundamental in it's physical difference. A speck of dust on a stone is the same wether it was put there by wind or by a man. It is less likely that a mountain was put there by intent than by accident, and it is less likely that a car was put together by accident than by intent, but their continued existence is independent of their source because the physical properties of a mountain piled on by men won't necessarily be different from those put together by nature and (since you like quantum physics) a car that randomly flunctuates into existence, once every 100,000,000,000,000,000 universes, won't necessarily be different from a car put together by you and me.

4 billions years of accidents vs. however much time we have left doing intentional work; I think odds are on our side that we can scrap together something at least as good as us if we don't die too soon.

"Human counsciousness" is very wishy-washy, though. If something is made that could reliably be confused for a human that is well enough. Behavior is observable, subjectivity is exclusive to each own - we don't believe others have minds because we experience those, we assume they do because they behave as if they have minds.

Arrogance doesn't really work because we take it for granted and use it in other contexts other than this philosophical one.
