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.

Why is it easier for Christians to feel bad for a leper for his condition than for a homosexual? Isn’t the homosexual sick like a leper too?

The homosexual's condition is personal and not afflicted by things outside their control. Its also sexual, which is far more taboo than a skin condition.
>>
>>14001988
the leper does not want to spread leprosy, nor be accepted as if he were healthy.
he understands his condition, and acts accordingly.
the exceptions of the latter case that do the same are also reasonable.

Was the renaissance the first woke shitlib age?

There is a ton of medieval literature that we simply do not have access to. I think the burden of proof is on those who are pro-renaissance to show that not only did they save more of medieval literature than they destroyed but that more of the medieval worlds texts would have been lost without them. So far, even the best case analysis of renaissance conduct is that they saved and copied the stuff they agreed with and either destroyed or let the stuff they disliked go quietly into the dustbin of history by letting entropy do it’s thing. What’s more damning is that they could have easily saved all the medieval manuscripts as they had the printing press by then and could just quickly copy everything.

You've got it the wrong way round. Welfare isn't a threat to capitalist Western democracies, it's the thing keeping them alive. If you took away welfare, you wouldn't go 10 years without a violent proletarian revolution.

lol you don't even care about your alleged civilization's greatest achievement. plato and aristotle are a cudgel to be to used against others in a civilizational dick measuring contest and nothing else. you obviously don't know shit about literature, either, to claim that shakespeare and goethe are irrelevant (jesus fucking christ we're talking about two literal supermen), so i can't imagine you've even read sophocles or aeschylus. i'm sure you at least made an attempt to read homer, but it probably took you a fucking year, right? literal barbarian telling his betters that they have no civilization. listen here, i know you're some sort of gypsy or mulatto and aren't accepted as a real greek, and that's unfortunate, but that's no reason to subject us all to your derangement. seek mental help. tell your therapist about how the snowniggers have stolen civilization from you, a gyspy-mulato trans-greek, and are destroying it by not exterminating black people. he'll put on all the right meds, and that'll be a far better way of deal with your insanity than continually acting out this pathetic psychodrama in every /his/ thread vaguely dealing with proto-indo-europeans.

he's kinda right, the greeks have had 200+ philosophers, only a couple are remembered now and in ancient times nobody really gave a fuck. people cared about kings and heroes, or poets. most of philosophy was just an elite book club back then and the vast majority of it is forgotten today
philosophy is wannabe science by people too lazy to prove what they say

if that's his argument, whatever, but then don't talk to me about civilization. if you don't care about science, the arts, or philosophy, then why are we talking about civilization? the word means nothing to you. it's just a sort of je ne sais quoi that you associate with classical antiquity and only classical antiquity. sumerians and egyptians have civilization. germans and brits don't? okay, whatever.

What no longer exist and what never existed are akin. What there is, is all we have left. We can only have what there is to be had. I'm not arguing any king of serious claim, merioly trying to explain the fact that where you to count the content of religions in words and count those words and only those words, so, baring all words that are commentary or adjacent to said works and only counting each of them, where you to include lotr and the commentaries and the dialoges, as well as works of jrr. you would have a larger pile of words. Nothing to do about content, commentaries or discussions. This is just to show that the works people hold so close are no different that the other works of written legends and lores.

Oddly if not for Christians, the indo-European language family would never have been discovered. Greeks and Romans showed little to no interest in linguistics because it was beneath them to learn barbarian languages. It was Christians who who had keen ear for languages and went out of their way to learn barbarian languages like Gothic.

>Marxism
Classless, Stateless society. Basically anarcho-communism. Never been attempted because it's fucking retarded.
>Marxist-Leninism
The basic archetype that all communist governments afterwards model themselves after. Near-complete lack of property rights or political freedoms.
>Fascism
Similar to Marxist-Leninism but with a larger focus on ethnicity rather than class and more lenient on private businesses. Pretty much died out as a serious ideology after WW2.

TL;DR Marxist-Leninism is Marxism but totalitarian, and Fascism is Marxist-Leninism but racist.

communist governments are highly centralized government with zero common sense regulations that rule through fear and financial ruin usually through their control of the monetary system and economy through things like highly corrupt deals with housing developers.

fascist governments are what we call anti-communist governments that form when communist infiltration in liberal countries reaches the point where the central government can't control them and the local populations begin killing them creating a populist movement of hard-line anti communism which empowers the state to crush those that would destroy it
