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.

Were the nazis pro vaccine or anti-vaccine? i dont get it
2 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
anti-vaccine. they believed the genetically weak should die, they also said the jews would probably use them to sterilize Aryans (non joke Goebbels actually said that in a speech)
Moronic reply.
His is a retard board, so I expect them to strongly agree with your post.
Nazis were leftwing socially in all ways. Maternal care, abortion, eugenics (which is leftwing and comes from abortion, proves his is a retard board), evolution, voting rights (nazis had town council elections), gays, environmental, nationalism is leftwing, immigration (nazis supported turks), etc.
Pol is a single issue board focused on immigration, and in that sense it's anti nazi because nazi Germany had completely open borders with no immigration controls at all. Germany had no border guards before the FRG.
What pol is trying to do, besides the single immigration issue which contradicts everything, is to build a midwit ideology. It's not the "sides don't exist" argument, and it actually takes a center position. It supports the version of the left that existed under boomers. It doesn't fully support either position, just this intermediate welfare state that also has border control, but it doesn't expel anyone already here.
As you can see border control as pol does it is the most pathetic position to ever exist, not only did nazis have no border control at all, but communists have the best border control in history. The ideology that pol is defending is closest to stalinist centrism. It's not even nazbol, it's just midwitbol.
80% of what you said is wrong and the other 20% is misrepresented. you think you are smarter than you are
what about things like vaxx mandates and quarantines?
Excellent work lib.
There were no pandemics for most of the time nazis were there. I believe there actually were vax mandates, I found something there.
If there were disease outbreaks that required a quarantine, the cities were destroyed anyway so I'm not sure that existed as a issue.

There's no such study. Latest zapotec genetic studies still locate them in the same region over the past 2000 years.
Again, where are you people taking this information from?

What was the positive alternative to the partition of India?

I always hear Indians and Pakistanis claiming it’s caused all their problems while also being glad they gave their own countries and aren’t stuck in either a Hindu dominated one or a Muslim dominated one

Its always bizarre to me how Muslims and Hindus blame the partition for their cultural and ethnic conflicts... even though they had those before the British ever arrived, and it was minimal while the British ruled

So what’s the deal here? Just sounds like Pakistanis and Indians can’t recognise their own failings so they blame the evil colonial overlords regardless of logic
14 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
The driving force behind partition was not religious division, it was resistance to land reforms. The god awful land revenue system of the British Raj benefitted a small minority of elite landowning families at everyone else's expense. In the case of Hindu landowners, the majority had sold their holdings by this point and had become mostly urban. When it became apparent that Nehru would become the leader of independent India, Muslim landowners wanted out because Nehru was a socialist who wanted to implement his Fabian land reforms. The British obliged because a divided India would cause the region to be far less stable which would benefit them and their American successors. By the way, the lack of Nehru's Fabian policies is the reason Pakistan is such a massive shithole even compared to India.

There is no reason for the judge to forgive your debt, unless th debt is paid

That's a false equivalence. Shooting someone else wouldn't pay the debt

Hence why the money analogy makes sense
The prophetic part is not the first verse, it's the part where it says that his hands and feet are pierced. He's just reciting the first verse which traditionally implied the whole text.
The psalm has its own context and meaning, beside the prophetic part.

I've read the book and bought into Myers' thesis but I've come around to thinking he's incorrect. It's a holdover Stalinist state.

Well even neoliberals (not so much anymore) would claim China also proved their ideology was successful because China's economic growth was due to market reforms. But I think ideologues who are on the outs in their respective countries like to do that because they have some dissonance with their own governments, which makes the "grass look greener on the other side," and there's also some second-order prestige involved, like it's easier to sell your own fringe ideology if there's a powerful state on the other side of the world that shares it.

However, the problem for Keith Woods is that the CCP doesn't care about him while it does have meetings with other communist parties. See:

>It's a holdover Stalinist state.
Correct, but if anything Myers' thesis only proves how close fascism and stalinism are in reality, if one can be easily be taken for the other.
There are some similarities because we tend to use Europe of the 1920s/1930s as the historical reference point when the idea of the state as an expression of the general will/masses/People was big, but also not something that was the exclusive monopoly of any particular ideology. Also the idea of trying to create new society notably different from that shaped by capitalism or at least liberal/bourgeois parliamentary democracy (the communists would say the fascists were capitalists but illiberal but it's a waste of time to argue about that right now).

Also you had states with different ideologies doing similar things and often for similar reasons! Including FDR's America.

But that's not the world most of us live in today, most of the world today is neoliberal which presents itself as hyperdemocratic with the state apparatus, bureaucracy, progressive taxation etc. seen as fetters on democracy which is the market.

A few other observations... how much of politics today is defined by who was mean to you/me/them on the internet five years ago. Or how much it's aesthetics (see B.R. Myers here too... Kim Il Sung riding a white horse! That makes him like Hirohito!). How much of anti-fascism today is more of an aesthetic preference and aesthetic objection than anything else? The fash and anti-fash aren't even punching each other anymore now that there's a dementia-addled white liberal in the White House.

Also it's interesting to look at how actual got into power. They didn't usually coup their way into power, guns blazing. It was remarkably "constitutional" and institutionally unopposed.

What is the difference between Magian and Babylonian culture?

What kind of copes did Catholic rulers use for violently subjugating other Catholics?
8 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
This doesn't answer my question in the slightest

Presumably these men feared God and took their religion somewhat seriously, so in what ways did they twist Christianity to cope with their warmongering ways?
It was the final holdout of Byzantine presence in Italy iirc
Why would they need to twist it? Brutal reality of the secular aspects of life could coincide with religious devotion via prayer, church attendance and monogamy. You have the perfect example of the Pope fulfilling this dual role: spiritual leader of Catholicism while simultaneously being a pragmatic secular ruler responsible for political decisions and his subjects.
Early Christians had been pacifists.

Ceasar and the senate became the pope and the cardinals

Because the Roman army was too expensive to keep, fear of eternal damnation and cash for indulgences replaced the boot and club

The catholics also continued the Roman tradition of creating glorious architecture and art to substantiate their existence. All of this is more Roman than like Jesus
>Early Christians had been pacifists.
Early Christians were many things. Including Violent.
>Ceasar and the senate became the pope and the cardinals
Not really, a papacy proper only began to exist a few hundred years after the fall of western Rome. But yes most mainstream churches (except the calvinists) use bits and pieces cribbed from Roman governance.
>Because the Roman army was too expensive to keep
No, it wasn't, Billy Bob Evangelical.
>fear of eternal damnation and cash for indulgences replaced the boot and club
Your mind on being from the U.S and a radical dissenter protestant.
>The catholics also continued the Roman tradition of creating glorious architecture and art to substantiate their existence.
No, the architecture and art came after that, often it was a local initiative.
>Early Christians were many things. Including Violent.
Yet Christ allowed himself to be crucified, and his disciples did not preach violence, and were burned to death for their pains.

This only fuelled the church and added to its followers, because the world was witnessing a most exceptional love and loyalty.

Europeans came to trade – and often to kidnap and enslave Native Americans – well before the arrival of the Pilgrims.

Juan Ponce de León explored Florida as early as 1513, and the Spanish had a settlement in St Augustine by 1565, while French Huguenots tried and failed to establish a colony on the coast of what is now South Carolina in 1562.
Spain created all the native American tribes. Archery only originates in steppe and they gave them archery.
God fucking knows. But yeah, the first decades of most euro colonies in the Americas were fucking wild. Especially the English ones.
>God (Anglican)
>New England is literally dissenterland
>Virginia and the other Anglican shitholes import ten trillion niggers to grow dey cotton.
>Europeans came to trade
In North America, they mostly came to fish. And that was in the grand banks.
>Juan Ponce de León explored Florida as early as 1513, and the Spanish had a settlement in St Augustine by 1565, while French Huguenots tried and failed to establish a colony on the coast of what is now South Carolina in 1562.
This was all in the southeast, and you are ignoring the 2 prior English colonial efforts on North America (roanoke, Popham, I think there was another abortive one)
