Warfare in the streets ended soon after the founding of the Republic and the Nazis, Communists and SocDems didn’t start beating the shit out of each other until the global economy shat itself in 1929, and I feel that the extent and degree to which all of that happened has been heavily overblown.

Ra-ra-rasputin was somehow evil.

Its ok to dislike him. But aside from being magic and fucking a lot of people he was also very popular/infamous is petrograd as an "influencer" to use modern terms. A lot of his writings were reflective of populism. He was antiwar, pro-monarchy, but also for a lot of liberal reform. Thats why given his mysticism and his closeness to the royal family made him disliked by the leftists and the monarchists.

Hes more than just a curious figure that was impossible to kill.

He wasn't even that hard to kill, if I am not mistaken. They tried to poison him, but his physical condition didn't allow him to take the poisoned pastries that he was offered, so they shot him point blank in the chest and the head. Making him out to be a demon-like figure who would just not die was propaganda.

>>6913007
Yeah the death scene is likely legend but if you dont believe in magic, which you shouldnt then you already knew that.
Story is he drank the wine, ate the pastry, unaffected, was shot. Got up freaking everyone out, ran out, was shot again and beaten. arms and legs tied, wrapped in a carpet, and thrown into an icy river. Found the next day under the ice out of carpet with hands untied. Buried by the royal family. Post-revolution his body is dug up and burned. As his body is burning it sits up freaking everyone out the last time.

The poison in the pastry was denatured during cooking. Idk about the wine. He was shot multiple times. Story is clearly exaggerated. The sitting up when burning is probably just tendon contraction from the heat, kinda known to happen. Easy to see how superstitious people would get spooked especially with his legend.

No, it wasn't. Any revolts, or threats from revolt stopped by 1922. Hyperinflation only lasted during 1923. Nazis were all but forgotten until 1930. Commies were a joke until 1930 too.

Okay? And? What's your argument? I've clearly stated that Germany wasn't a hell hole throughtout the 20s. It was just about as bad as Britian and France, which is to say it was liveable. Hyperinflation would of course, only cause issue for those with savings, which I am going to assume for most of Germany wouldn't matter. Therefore the extent of it's negative effect was most likely limited. I could be wrong, however I doubt it. For everyone else, Hyperinflation was simply a year where people got frustrated that they had to carry way too much money for a loaf of bread. By 24 Streeseman had got rid of it.

Sure, modern advancements have increased life expectancy. But the myth they're talking about concerns a misconception on average life spans throughout history. The myth is that on average people lived to be 30-40 for the past few thousand years.
Statisically, maybe this is true. But statistics don't tell the full story. The reason the stats might say that people died at thirty do so because of high infant mortality rates were dragging average lifespan down. Realistically, people weren't dying at 30, just a bunch of them were dying at 3, while the rest would easily live to 60+.

So many Irish people completely write off centuries of fascinating history and stamp a big "we wuz oppressed" label on it which is humiliating.

>We conquered you 800 years ago, you're rightfully ours

English people also seem to be woefully unaware of the reality of their past relationship with Ireland.

Before the anglo irish existed there, Ireland was a constant migration hotbed for anglo-saxons, welsh/scots and vikings (and french?). This was especially so with the scots. The native Irish barely exist at all except as some vestigial genes in modern irish and british. Hell, I was shocked as a person who has ancestry "from ireland" in modern history to find that my last name was likely derived from a scottish clan (from the area circled in pic). Many names in Ireland are the same as Scotland was always involved with Ireland naturally by the proximity of it to ireland (it's closer to ireland than wales).

This. Henry the VIII had more people executed for religious reasons than the Spanish Inquisition in its entire history.
Also, Catholics barely partook in witch burning. There was an epidemic of accusations over witchcraft in northern Spain during the early 16th century and a Church delegate had to be sent there to judge each individual accusation and no one got burned because he determined them to be unfounded. The Catholic Church's stance on witchcraft was that it wasn't real.

The advantage of this is basically no mess to clean up and it pretty much is hollywood silent with that much suppression.

Or are you saying that Irish history is a lot richer and more complex than just English oppression? If it's the latter I completely agree.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weimar_culture#Berlin's_reputation_for_decadence
>Prostitution rose in Berlin and elsewhere in the areas of Europe left ravaged by World War I. This means of survival for desperate women, and sometimes men, became normalized to a degree in the 1920s. During the war, venereal diseases such as syphilis and gonorrhea spread at a rate that warranted government attention.
>Homosexual behaviour was also documented among soldiers at the front. Soldiers returning to Berlin at the end of the War had a different attitude towards their own sexual behaviour than they had a few years previously. Prostitution was frowned on by respectable Berliners, but it continued to the point of becoming entrenched in the city's underground economy and culture. First women with no other means of support turned to the trade, then youths of both genders.
>The German public also became fascinated with reports of homicides, especially "lust murders" or Lustmord.
>Thrill-seekers came to the city in search of adventure, and booksellers sold many editions of guide books to Berlin's erotic night entertainment venues. There were an estimated 500 such establishments, that included a large number of homosexual venues for men and for women; sometimes transvestites of one or both genders were admitted, otherwise there were at least 5 known establishments that were exclusively for a transvestite clientele.

Almost anything to do with precolumbian, especially mesoamerican history

>Tthe Aztec, Maya, and Inca are the only complex precolumbian civilizations (There's two seperate cradles of civilization, in Mexico and Peru, both of which had civilization for 1500-2000+ years before europeans showed up, had dozens of major civilizations and hundreds of specific states; also the Missipissians were a thing)

>Tthey never invented the wheel (they did and they understood the mechanical properties of it)

>They were stone age (they smelted bronze and were more comparable to civilizations from the iron age or classical anitquity in most regards anyways, the choice of material for tools doesn't define the overall technological complexity of a society)

>The Aztec sacrificed 80,000 people in a single day (literally proven factually false both by basic math and via digs at where the bodies woulfd be stored, probably more like dozens to low hundreds a year)

>They got conquered by like 500 conquistadors (The Conquistadors composed less then 1% of the armies that sieged the Aztec captial, with both that conflict and the remaining conflicts over the nrext few decades against the remaining city-states, kingdoms, and empires all being primarily fought via native armies on the spanish's behalf who did most of the work; + dieseases crippling the native population)

>Aztec cities sided with the spanish due to the Aztec being tyrannical evil assholes who enslaved people to sacrirfice (the Aztec empire left the cities it conquered alone as long as they paid tribute and every city was sacrifcing people to some degree, cities sides with the spanish out of geopolitical oppunritsm)

>"Tribes" (Mesoamefica had almost no tribes, nearly every society in the region past 200AD or so was a sedentary state society or a rural community under the domion of one)

Mesoameriaboo from >>6919500, I agree to an extent.

The idea that the spanish were intentionally ethnically cleansing Mexico is bunk; Spain's imperial strategy required a population to rule over, unlike say up in north america where american coilionists saw the natives as people in the way; and particularly early on in the colional period, you saw native nobility and royalty keeping their influence, marrying with spanish nobles, etc, with at least some degree of a view of respect towards native civilizations and their accomplishments.

That being said, there were also plenty of times Conquistadors massacred people or mass enslaved them out of greed; the enciomedia system still enabled exploitation, and over time Spanish rule increasingly eroded native political and social systems and treated the native people as second class citizens or near slaves, you saw racial caste systems, etc

Most importantly, the mass destruction of mesoamerican texts, art, and archtecture is quite possibly THE single biggest historical/cultural loss in human history, with dozens of libraries burned, hundreds to thousands of books with them; thousands of works of goldwork, fine textiles, ceramics, featherwork, etc melted down or destroyed, and temples and cities demolished. An entire indepedent cradle of civilization was nearly wiped out. It's unimaginable; between it and the Andes, we lost an entire third pillar of human history alongside the West and East.

If nothing else, they are guilty of cultural genocide.

It's depressing to think about, but if it makes you feel better there's still a lot more records left then people think.

We have hundtreds of primary sources about Aztec society and history in both Spanish and Nahuatl (the aztec language) from the early colional period, since even though the Spanish mass burned Aztec libraries, many Native nobles and royalty, and Spanish friar, then re-recorded information which was lost. Sahagun's history for instance is like 2000+ pages of detailed information on daily life, goverment organization, medical practices, religion, random cultural views, craftsmen and their arts, and other info about Aztec culture and society, while Duran's history is a similar work but detailing their history, down to specific statements made by specific political officials, see pic. (granted, much of these sources have bias issues, either against or for the aztec depending on if the source was spanish or native, but still)

For the Maya, meanwhile, dozens of maya cities have surviving inscriptions detailing the political histories of their city and royal families, from the specific dates of alliances, wars, births, deaths, marriages, etc, which when cross referenced can tell us a lot about the state of their region. We have 8 surviving Mixtec books with the same sort of info, and while much more limited, we have a handful of records like this or like the aztec ones for other civilizations like the Purepecha Empire, Zapotec, etc

So if you are willing to put the work into going balls deep to find the sources (check out >>6919166), there's a lot more info out there then youy'd think, especially for the Aztec and Maya, but the fact that we know as much as we do despite the mass biblocaust onlyu goes to show how much more we WOULD have if not for that. We could have legit roman tier records going back like 800-1000 years before the Spanish contact, maybe further.

On a brighter note, I'd like to mention something since you bring up the architecture. In Pizarro's home town in Spain, named Trujillo, there are some buildings from the 16th century that don't fit in aesthetically with the rest. Well, turns out, that upon the return of some consquistadores, many of whom where from the region of Extremadura, where Trujillo is located, they brought with them tales and descriptions of the architecture they had witnessed in America, and some of them had buildings made in mainland Spain based on those designs they had seen in the New World. So you have some Mesoamerican looking houses in the middle of a relatively small town in one of the least thought of regions of Spain; I thought it was very interesting when I found out.
>>
>>6919716
Something else we can appreciate is the preservation of native languages. During the colonization plenty of Jesuits and other evangelists traveled abroad to save the natives' souls; it was a common belief among them that Europe was too sick and depraved by that point in History to be saved, and that the natives were much purer of heart and thus, capable of salvation if properly educated. There was the language barrier, of course. So, in the name of efficiency, instead of teaching the natives Spanish so they could be communicated the word of God, which would be pretty hard, the evangelists learnt the native tongues and preached in them. That did wonders for preservation. It wouldn't be until the 18th century that those tongues would be persecuted, and by then they were affianced enough in the culture to survive. Mestizos also tended to speak their native tongue because the majority of them were children of Spanish fathers and American mothers; since mothers were in charge of the education and care of the children, their progeny usually spoke either the native tongue or became bilingual.

It's actually true though. What double digiters don't understand is that this means that, for those surviving childhood, 40s is a good estimate of average lifespan. Doesn't mean people die of old age in their 40s. It means that people would die from the host of diseases that modern adults see a doctor for, else random infection. Some people get lucky and avoid this and do make it to old age, which before modern medicine/good childhood living standards would be younger, i.e 60s instead of 80s.

Mesoamerica and the Andes absolutely had "advanced" civilizations: The most complex Mesoamerican groups were comparable to Greece and Persia in terms of city sizes, political complexity, water mangement systems, the emphasis and florusihing of the arts; and even moreso in terms of medicine, hygine, and biology.

Were they full WE WUZ tier hyper-advanced ancient ayy tier stuff? of course not, but they were still 'advanced" by the measures most people would say Old World ancient civilizations were advanced.

>>6921765
Mesoamerican (MExico, Guatamala, etc) and Andean (Peru, Bolvia, etc) cultures were generally full formal political states based in cities, like in europe and asia. They get called "stone age" due to how they didn't prefer to use metals for tools, especially the mesoamericans; but were really more comparable to bronze age (egypt, sumer, minoans, etc), iron age (assyia, babylon, etc), or classical civilizations (greece, persia, rome, etc), derpending on which facet of society you look at/which civ in particular

Like pic related shows a look at the interiors of two aztec minor palaces/noble villas, only retards would call these socities "tribes"; and the Aztec, while the most powerful mesoameircan group, weren';t an outlier in terms of being a formal complex state or having cities by any means.

when people say the Mediterrians "stole" stuff from the fertile crescedent the "stolen" part isn't usually an actual term of derision, it's just poking fun at /pol/tards

I oversold it a little, sorry; I had forgotten some of the details. It is still sort of true; while not entire buildings were made in that style, there were still some influences.
First off, sorry for the crap picture. Here you can see chimneys that are reminiscent of the style the conquistadores witnessed in America.

>not a myth, it was a combination of incompetence, fear and trying to get out of the situation with out having to fight or at least not get the hardest blow
It is entirely a myth. Heeresgruppe C had 42 divisions in it, most of them from the same Welles that were attacking in Poland. OKW's reserves of 11, weaker divisions were also in the region. That is well in excess of what the pre-war French army was capable of fielding, and if you want to attack across a narrow, fortified front and have at least the bare comfort of numerical superiority, the French would have needed to throw essentially untrained reservists into the fray and hope they can attack a fixed position.

There is no way in hell this would have worked.

then you are being dumb, that's just cultural exchange, as the other anon said.

That's not the point. The thing is, Sparta, as popularized by films and graphic novels, or even as it was remembered by people in the early modern period and romanticized by the neoclassicists is very much different from what classical Sparta actually was like. From Jacques-Louis David, to the US using the east vs west narrative based on the battle of thermopylae during WW2, to Miller, everyone remembers Sparta in a "Heroic, stoic and beautiful" fashion. They are a red-cloaked supersoldier savior meme.

People usually think "America pre-colonization = tribes" because they see it through the lens of the colonizations carried on by the U.K and Fracen, who did in fact encounter mainly just tribes.
But Spain and Portugal encountered complex civilizations, true, not as advanced as Europe but still much more than "tribes"

The same goes for the opposite of this. Just because it took longer for some peoples to develop complex civilizations doesn't make them inherently inferior.

Sherman 75 really needed a bigger gun and more armour. It got it and was a great tank. Sherman with the 17lber (the 76mm was good too) was probably one of the best tanks of the war.

Tiger if it had sloped armour would have been a much better tank. 100mm plate at 35 degrees...

I mean, i'd have to see said studies, but I'm open to the idea that certain ethnic groups tend to be smarter or not on average, but that's the thing: it'd be on the basis of specific ethnic groups, not "race", which often groups together a bunch of pretty genetically distinct ethnic groups together.

For example, pretty much any indingious american be they from what's now canada or mexico would get grouped as "native american" as a race, when if you look at actual genetics, there are specific groups just inside mexico with as much genetic variation from each other as most germans vs most japanese people

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2014/06/people-mexico-show-stunning-amount-genetic-diversity

Regardless, clearly arabs, amerindians, indians, SEA's, etc, or at least the specific ethnic groups that did historically, are capable of producing, and sustaining complex socities.
>>
>>6926796
Not him but what always bothers me is the whole "the Amerindians never invented the wheel". Ignoring that they did actually invent the wheel and just used it for toys because they lacked the beasts of burden to make the wheel truly useful, civilizational development doesn't work like a videogame tech tree. You can in fact be advanced and not have the wheel.
>>
>>6929290
the mesoamericans also conceptualized their calender system as interlocking wheels, had spindle whorls and a similar device which acted as a potter's wheel, and may have used wheel;s in siege towers, since we know at least the Maya had those and presumbly you need wheels them to function

In a roundabout way this is true, but the big flashy battles with swords and guns are not the only types of battle during war. The definition of victor here is what needs refinement.
