>Let's step on the shoes of the West by bombing china and their property in it.
>WTF west why you boycott me reeeeeeee!

Why were they such retards? It was obvious it would happen, why did they ignore the warnings? If they had stayed in Manchuria exclusively, in one or two decades they would have had their own oil.

Because they were more or less backed into a corner and felt that their only way to uphold their status as a great power and make themselves equal to Britain or America was to do the same things both of them did, namely conquering out massive, resource rich empires from foreign territory. If they conquered China it would have basically become Japan's India, complete with resources to feed Japan's economy and millions of people in a captive market. Manchuria was nice but it wasn't enough.

This guy spent 4 years on the front lines in WW1 and suffered no ill effects. He even claimed to have enjoyed it. Meanwhile, Arthur Saxon, the strongest man in the world, was completely broken by his experiences in the trenches. Goes to show that true strength is mental, not physical.

Tiered afterlife. Birds of a feather flock together. God does not punish nor reward.

Atheists today are whinier and less sophisticated than atheists prier to the 20th century. As plebbits, they're reddit just being reddit and r/Christianity is almost just as bad.
>what do you think happens after we die?
Return to the dust first, then if anything/anyone isn't found in the book of life, they'll dumped into the fiery land fill.
>do you think you'll go to heaven?
If God's mercy allows it and the Holy Spirit indwells within me, yes.
>what does heaven look like?
Christ told us that it's beyond our imagination. Ultimately though, heaven is where God's presentence is concentrated and that should be enough for any believer.
>what does hell look like?
A fiery land fill.

So I'm just starting to write up a podcast on Waterloo and I was wondering if /his/ had anything that could help me with it. Any quotes, interesting stories, controversies that you can think of regarding the Battle, as well as before and after?

Thanks, that’s more than I have read on the battle itself, I have been looking at the FR broadly - let me see if I can find an anecdote or two.
>>
Lead off with the inevitable defeat debate. Did Waterloo matter or would the other converging armies have beaten him through sheer numbers?
Maybe you could talk about the marshals. Why was one left in Paris. Where did he have Ney, etc. on the battlefield?
Also talk about perspective. What could Napoleon see on the battlefield? What span of control do he have?

I like Wellington‘s quote about cavalry (I was a cavalry officer so I am biased):
>It is occasioned entirely by a trick our officers of cavalry have acquired of galloping at everything, and then galloping back as fast as they gallop on the enemy. They never… Think of maneuvering before an enemy – so little that one would think they cannot manuever, excepting on Wimbledon Common; and when they use their arm as it aught to be, viz. offensively, they never keep… A reserve.

Hope that helped.

Is a life conceived out of rape worthless?

Should any baby conceived from the act of rape be put to death?

This is an well spoken, intelligent man that was given up for adoption after being conceived out of the act of a rape. He is now an adult man, a well spoken and intelligent man that is married and that has 4 children.

So let me get this straight, if I became a president and decided that it was legal to kill, I don't know, black people and I did that legally (75% of votes in parliament or whatever is the requirement in some country). When my term ended and people changed the law, I would be completely free? Like, will north korean leaders be free if they are overthrown? I mean they just followed their laws right?

Oh, I must have missed that part when von Manstein used poison gas. What battle was that? Also, don't do that, you know there were people who "just followed orders" which they had to by their law.
>>
>>6832614
There was more to the Geneva Conventions than poison gas that was just an example for how it wasn't applied retroactively to Great War generals.

The problem with the Nazis was that the orders they were following were illegal via an international treaty which supersedes local jurisdiction another staple concept of modern legal codes.

>the direct family line of Confucius stretches from 551 BC to today, a total of 78 generations
>the formal royal house of Georgia, the Bagrationis, go back to 200 AD through the Bagratunis
>oldest proven descent in the west is from Arnulf of Metz to Queen Elizabeth II, which started in 642 AD and isn’t event direct

Why doesn’t the west have one family line that lasted as long as Confucius’ did? Or even one from antiquity like the Bagratonis? It always surprises me that not one Roman family made it to the “Dark Ages” intact. Do any other societies have lineages similar in length to Confucius?

>>
>>6834060

Yes, it's simple and straight forward enough for the everyone to understand it, but it's also homogenizing and fixed, so that everyone has to obey one unchanging moral standard.

Going back to paganism just ensures ethics and virtue will be limited to a rather smaller group of people who are unusually principled.

There’s truth to this but I think the rule of law and universal policing has more of an effect on behaviour in the last 200 years than monotheism.

Basically what the video says is that it's because they thought that in order for Jesus to come back muslims had to die and jews had to dominate the middle east?
Is that why Israel has been created?

I think most Christians who dislike the Muslim world dislike it for reasons having to do with the Byzantine-Arab and European-Turk wars. Besides that, they are both religions that make mutually exclusive universal claims so it is natural that they will exist in conflict as long as they both exist.

tl;dr: it is a forever war if you take either religion seriously
