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.

again, just because the armed forces were re-organised into the popular amry in october 1936 doesnt mean the men and armament popped up out of nowhere. it is a fact that the majority of the armed forces sided with the Republicans. it is also a fact that Franco barely had 20.000 men at his disposal by that time, so i fail to see how he would be able to take the capital of the country. even though the Republican leadership were disorganised, it would have been a very difficult task to take Madrid at that time. not to mention that Toledo was a symbolic city, as well as tactically important, as it allowed for the conquest of Extremadura and connect with the northern Nationalist forces.
>Also, who would have expected that the republicans would start persecuting and imprisoning people that wanted to side with the nationalists after the nationalists announced that they had entire columns waiting for them to join them
is it confusing to you that this happens during wars? i simply pointed out that the chekas did exist and were state-sanctioned torture/killing grounds, nowhere did i say the Nationalists were saints nor that they didnt torture or kill their enemies/innocent civilians. or do you think that all the atrocities by one side were good and justified and the other side were evil demonspawn that were bloodthristy for the deaths of innocents? grow up
>At least the republicans took prisoners, not like the nationalist that filled entire bullfighting plazas with the bodies of peasants and families of militamen, even using entire villages for testing german bombs.
yes, im sure all those people in paracuellos were thankful they were captured by the Republicans
>Dont pretend to care about the people, your true colours are showing, you piece of shit
i dont have to pretend, i had family that fought on both sides of the conflict who suffered from both sides, you on the other hand sound like youre seething at an invisible enemy

Why do Europeans have them while Siberians don't?

Obviously they can only evolve in dark northern climes, but Siberians lack them.

Also they used to be even MORE common, 100% in paleolithic europeans. They were also heavily selected after the bronze age, the Aryan invaders were almost completely dark-eyed.

So what advantage did they give to paleolithic and post-chalcolithic europeans alike? And why was this advantage not experienced by Siberian people on the same

>how?
Because a single King (arguably warlord) having a hegemony for a few months which shatters almost immediately does not a nation make-unless your claim is that it is to Brian Boru's hegemony that all future Irishmen sought to return to. That makes no sense.

Alexander the Great had an Empire that lived similarly enough to how Brian's one did, but most historians do regard as legitimate.

Brian Boru is just one example of how the Irish people have always regarded themselves as belonging to the same tribe.

>Yes, because by Irish law most of what he did was completely illegal.

You are only using faith to reach the conclusion

Marx had some good critiques of capitalism but his ultimate flaw was ignoring race. People only look after their own race. Not everything is economics; people have biological ties to their race. People of a different race will never work together. Ultimately everyone should stick to their own kind and ethnostates should be built. Hitler's race struggle is more pertinent than Marx's class struggle. And instead of class conflict we should work towards class cooperation and upholding our ideals of racial purity. People of mixed race lose their identity and feel left out from both their races and develop depression which is where we are in modernity. Everyone needs to embrace the reality of their race and identity. That is the only way forward. We need more identity and race politics and less class politics. Racial unity and class cooperation, not classless cooperation and racial disunity.
