Where can I find transliterations or high-res photos of Assyrian cuneiform? Is there any way to get this stuff without buying the $500+ academic books?

My vulva, the horn,
The Boat of Heaven,
Is full of eagerness like the young moon.
My untilled land lies fallow.
As for me, Inanna,
Who will plow my vulva?
Who will plow my high field?
Who will plow my wet ground?
As for me, the young woman,
Who will plow my vulva?
Who will station the ox there?
Who will plow my vulva?
Make your milk sweet and thick, my bridegroom.
My shepherd, I will drink your fresh milk.

Gilgamesh wasn't feeling it
I'm interested in Mesoamerican rather then Mesopotamian history, but holy shit I know your pain so much

It's fucking infuriating that museums and research libraries and universities have physical access to mesoamerican codices and manuscripts, have produced high resolution scans, yet doesn't offer full resolution downloads. Like fuck off, the things are 500 years old.

The fact that ancient documents/items are single items in the possession of institutions which can deny access to them is a huge loophole in copyright law, even if the document itself is public domain, they can just say "no photos allowed" or keep scans and researcch data held hostage. Some of thgem even liscense out scans of woodcuts and other documents to stock photo companies.

It's fucking disgusting.

Thankfully in the US at least there's some case law establishing direct scans of PD 2d art and documents also being PD, so theortically if you live in the US and the scans were made in the US it's legally PD and you can rip and share the shit off of websites, and I know wikipedia as a polciy where they consider direct scans of PD works as PD as well, but I don't know if that only applies to documents and art scann3ed inside the US. If it turns out it's not then I'm gonna go on a spree ripping scans from a bunch of museum catalogs and uploading them to wikimedia one day. I also bought a bunch of books of artistic recreations and museum catalogs I plan on scanning.

I have a whole shelf of Mesoamerican legend books, is there a particular focus you have with it?

That's a good question, re: what obligation academics have to share found stuff. I dunno what the answer to that is, but money is usually the easiest place to start: there probably isn't much of a demand for that stuff. If a lot of people were willing to spend money on it, then they'd probably put out a high-end coffee table type book for the manuscripts like Yale did with the Voynich MS.

I'll check out that program, thanks.

>Why would a university just straight up be willing to send PDFs?
Some profs care more about their work itself than all the shit that comes with it. Look for the real lovers of truth, beauty and wisdom.

Go fuck yourself.

Hahaha, I'm pretty sure he linked some good stuff though after, we fought and we are now chums, like Gil and Enkidu. c.f. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DefeatMeansFriendship

Can you have a true Democratic or Republican form of government without a capitalist economy? Was it ever tried to some degree of success?
12 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Why would you not want a capitalist economy?
I've looked for an alternative to it for a while, I don't think it's going to be viable in this century after enough technological advancements.
It could, but it'd not look like anything we currently have. Representative democracy through parties is political capitalism, after all.
Some people live in the exploited countries.
This may be the case eventually, but any alternative system has the problems of

Allocation of scare resources (Markets), Distribution of Wealth (Work [also a market])

Capitalism can still account for allocation of scare resources, the problem becomes the distribution of wealth (assuming you are referring to the automation of work)

The cost of Anarchy (e.g. Capitalism) gets us pretty close to an optimal solution currently. What should take the place of work?
What exactly do you mean by exploitation?Exploitation can refer to different things by different people.

Secondly (depending on what you mean above) Is the exploitation a result of the economic system, or the political system?

Does this exploitation not exist in other systems?

Serfie toils in the fields.
Monk is given half his yields.
His baron takes all of the rest.
"B-but I worked so hard and tried my best!"
He goes home to his haggard wife,
every day regrets his life.
The plague comes through and his family all die,
He still goes out the next day to harvest the rye.
He works all day and through the night,
but he still succumbs to the blight.
He lays there dying, pale and scabby,
While monk is safe inside the abbey.
Surife surfie, til the turfie.
Monk gets beef and gets real girthy.
Surfie surfie, pay your tax.
So Monk can stay inside and lax.
Being a regular monk in a shanty monastery would be no better than a serf - you would still be forced to do hard labor, except with even less agency.

Back in 2015, zoomers born in 98-99 were universally hated on 4chan for being "fake 90s kids", the Bieber-loving generation who didn't even remember 9/11, and were firmly slotted into the "First of the new school"

But now in 2019, zoomers born in 98-99 are universally beloved for being "based Black Ops 2 zoombers" and are the majority of 4chan, and try to cram themselves into the "last of the old school"

What about boomers born in 98-99? I think they're underrepresented.
I distinctly remember adults talking about the 90s being a shitty time back then, nowadays kids from the 90s have grown up and talk about how great the 90s were and how shitty today is. It's always like this.
People who despair about 18-22 year olds infesting this site already forgot that college-aged dudes were always the dominant age group here? In 2007 it was still 19-22 year old nerds shitposting, they just age and get replaced by new ones.
I'm getting too old for this website.
Boomers were born between 1946-1964 you meme loving fuck

Was Market Garden winnable by the Allies? What should have been done differently? How would this have affected history?
12 replies omitted. Click here to view.

They literally gave the most crucial objective to the least qualified unit
the plan had no redundancy, and monty couldn't deal with ambiguity like that (despite being a decorated commander, he was also an autist).
The redpill is understanding Market Garden was planned to fail to make sure the Soviets took Berlin (and East Germany) first.
Yeah it was totally winnable if they fucking tanks had advanced faster
so say it succeeds, how fucked was germany then? was it truly gonna be home by christmas? or would the war have dragged on through say, February-March '45?

Why do whites think they descend from Romans? Are they ashamed to acknowledge their backwards, Germanic barbarian ways?

Swarthy is a germanic cope word. Roman descended people don't have such a word. As I said, germanics aren't white but pink and orange and basically the abbos of "Europe" a continent where they belong only geographically.

>Pic related was the son of Italian immigrants from Naples
>Has pink skin

So I guess he's not a real Roman descendant then huh.
Literally nobody except for american mutts care about "muh racial heritage"; The same goes with the term "white".
I don't wanna descend from fucking Romans, they created civilization and civilization is shit.

Because most Christian Norsemen are better documented and of a later and more historical era.
Also, the Christian monks who wrote the histories paid more heed to the Christian rulers and did character assassinations of the pagan rulers.

For example, Eric Bloodaxe and Haakon Jarl (the Mighty), are described harshly, probably more harshly than they deserved. Did really Haakon Jarl die in a pig sty? Was he the medieval Colonel Gaddafi?

He clearly stood to benefit from his death and although it is said he died of natural causes, I'm quite sceptical of dying of "natural causes" at the age of 20 ( even though it were the dark ages people lived longer than that )

Its possible to die at any age you know
Extremely likely. I don't have any evidence but I always go with the most outrageous answer.
There's no direct evidence, but it seems super suspicious that his otherwise healthy brother that he hated died at 20.

No it wasn’t at all. That’s absolutely fucking retarded.
That percentage gets lower every time some autist quotes it
You know, you could be making some points that are worth discussing but your writing style is just so scattered it comes across as you just being unstable

The only thing that destined to fail here is the failure of you in school, for your spelling and grammar mistakes.

What is your first language, anon? I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm genuinely curious because your grammar/spelling errors are interesting.

That's spelling, not grammar. And i wasn't criticising yours, i was pointing out how desperate it reads
Try harder.

You are an uneducated midwit who thinks he's smart, sitting right at the dunning kruger peak. Just because you graduated middle school while picking boogers out your shnoze doesn't mean you know everything or understand everything. How about you actually learn a bit about economics before embarrassing yourself further?
