This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

They did win dipshit
José Antonio Primo de Rivera died in 1936, and Franco although the leader of the Falangists suppressed a number of their ranks (Manuel Hedilla's imprisonment) and deviated from Falangism.
They won the war, but they didn't win anything else. After Franco came to power he told the Falange to fuck off.

To what degree can the history of Africa be attributed to African languages? We know that language doesn't have an impact on IQ when measured visually, but the inferiority/primitiveness of their languages certainly had some societal impact, right?
I guess my question is are the issues with temporal reasoning due to the languages or do the languages have difficulty with temporal reasoning because of the speakers?

(We all know the truth about genetics and IQ, that discussion is settled. Please don't give african apologists an opportunity to shitpost.)

Reminder that African languages have explicit future tense but English has none.

>Why are tropical diseases worse, btw?
Moist, warm, damp environments are the most optimal for bacteria to thrive in.
>Also, did Africans have trouble with Euro diseases?
No, as >>5983849 pointed out, they often experienced them first. However, Europeans accidentally introduced the tsetse fly from West Africa into Central, Eastern, and Southern Africa, ravishing the livestock, leading to both famine and rewilding of pastoral fields, forcing some communities to regress.

The Greeks were pedophiles and homosexuals, that makes them civilized, while the Persians weren't. That makes the Battle of Salamis the opposite of a disaster.

Like why wasn't the traitors of the whiskey rebellion forgiven so easily? They hanged only 2 when they should have executed everyone involved in the insurrection.

The same goes for the Confederate traitors. Why didn't they just mass hanged every captured soldier and general? No Jim Crow laws if they were eliminated.

Americans aren't Europeans and the US government is not a European government. In other words, the US govt hates conflict because it hurts economic growth and wastes resources that could go into spic/redface control. And even then the government doesn't want to spend the money to do full genocides because that's expensive.


Marx liked Lincoln and sucked him off but only because Lincoln was mid-stage capitalism that would inevitably create late-stage capitalism by 1900. Given how socialism became the dominant economic policy until 1950, he was largely right.
Based shitposter at it again!
America was founded upon an act of treason. In regards to the Whiskey Rebellion, it was justified, because of a little thing called "no taxation without representation"

Also, treason is always justified, because governments suck.
If you don't like our government then go live in North Korea. And no, I'm saying that as a boomer. I really mean go live there since your boy little Donnie likes lil Kimmy the ching chong dictator.

Why is every single map of Mesoameirca and the andes in these super inaccurate?

Well in the case of Korea it's really hard to promote something you never had in the first place.

>this is the height of Korean culture
K-pop is just American pop music but using a ghoulish version of the Japanese idol system. At least Jap idols have produced actual good shit, especially in the underground/alt scene. Gook-pop has only produced annoying fujos and black Koreaboos.

100 years ago today Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg were brutally murdered by the Freikorps.
Say something nice about them.

The stupidity of posters like these is cringe. Completely ignorant of the subject, does not understand the level of detail and complexity required to achieve the goal, so the idiot says "it was basic" "it was overrated" because they can't even think, it tells us a lot about their general low intelligence.

Hi stormfront. Do you have a single fact to back up your claims?
Maybe I personally think they Muslims will only continue to get more radical not only in the gulf but in Europe as well
I'm also wondering how many were destroyed before anyone that cared even knew about them
>Especially the coast of the indian ocean?

it had the best waves and used to be a mecca for surfers, truly a surfer's paradise before the sandswarm arrived.

surviving surfers had to surf all the way to hawaii to escape the wrath of the sandswarm
