Why were celts the least patriarchal indo-Europeans?

> “The women of the Celtic tribes are bigger and stronger than our Roman women. This is most likely due to their natures as well as their peculiar fondness for all things martial and robust. The flaxen haired maidens of the north are trained in sports and war while our gentle ladies are content to do their womanly duties and thus are less powerful than most young girls from Gaul and the hinterlands.” — Marcus Borealis

> “Here the women met them holding swords and axes in their hands. With hideous shrieks of rage they tried to drive back the hunted and the hunters. The fugitives as deserters, the pursuers as foes. With bare hands the women tore away the shields of the Romans or grasped their swords, enduring mutilating wounds.” — Plutarch

> “A whole band of foreigners will be unable to cope with one [Gaul] in a fight, if he calls in his wife, stronger than he by far and with flashing eyes; least of all when she swells her neck and gnashes her teeth, and poising her huge white arms, begins to rain blows mingled with kicks, like shots discharged by the twisted cords of a catapult.” — Ammianus Marcellinu

Also in one of the quote you posted it literally states that those retarded """soldiers""" got mutilating wound from trying to grasp a sword from a Roman soldier
The Roman authors deliberately sensationalized and propagandized about their barbarian neighbours. What could be more barbaric than strong, domineering women?
Greater weaponry and organization. Still both horrified and aroused by the Celts. And as said the second Roman magic wore off they became barbarian chow.
Celts are indo european/farm nigga
Rape babies

So your premise is flawed
Indoeuropeans weren't the bedouin tier peoples described by polcucks tho, other steppe cultures as turkic, scythians and mongols were very liberal on women.

Just to start with, turkic women were described as very Immoral by arab merchants and explorers, scythian women in many times went to war alongside their men and mongols accepted the bastards of other men, even put to their sons the names of their great enemies.

Just to start with, Jochi was a bastard that Borte had with a rival of Gengish Khan when shw was captured. Gengish adopted him.

The same for other cultures, spartans for example let their women cuck them with men they considered superior.

Germans, Jews, Romans, arabs and Ionian greeks (mycenaean descendents) were the ones with strong patriarchal tendencies, tendencies strengthen by the consecutive victories of romans, germans and the spread of christian and islam.

Were the Franks germanic-speaking Celts?

the most successful germanic tribe wasn't germanic, lmao.
nords btfo
I don't see why not, as per their Celto-Germanic syncretic ethnic affiliation, which probably predates the entire Frankish identity, going back to the very first tribe or tribes to become involved with its growth. I could believe that the Franks from the onset were slightly Celtic, at least, as well as the Goths being somewhat Balto-Slavic in ethnic and cultural character, themselves.
what's the mental illness that leads to people identifying a non the identity of genetically homogeneous group to people that do not share its languae or culture?
Germanic =/= blonde

By the late Roman Empire the Germanic tribes had assimilated into the Celtic culture of modern southern Bavaria

Most Germans in that region have blue eyes and brown hair,

So yes, the franks were Germanic

Huns. I hate them. You ever see them before? Legs are deformed because they never get off their horses. Ugly faces too, must be Gods judgment. They aren't even good at fighting either, just running around on their horse. Not even trying to fight, too stupid to fight that's what I think. Short, stupid and weak. All that a Hun is.
But Romans literally adopted Horse Archers in mass in their legions after faced Huns/Sarmatians
The Romans got utterly BTFO by the Huns, although to be fair the Huns caught them at a bad time

In my opinion, this is one of the most important images ever created by man. I think it's time we all took a moment to appreciate what we have here before moving forward.

When the Austronesians spread into former hunter-gatherer territory in Maritime Southeast Asia, they brought both their genes and their Austronesian languages with them.
When the Bantus spread into former hunter-gatherer territory Central and Southern Africa, they brought both their genes and their Bantu languages with them.
When the Early European Farmers spread into former hunter-gather territory in Europe, they brought their genes. But what about their languages? Did they likely all speak languages from a common family, bringing those languages with them into Europe? At the very least, considering that they tended to outnumber the hunter-gatherer natives, it seems likely that they brought their languages with them instead of adopting indigenous hunter-gatherer languages. The only thing that I am uncertain about would be whether or not their languages would have belonged to a single family. I think investigating the existence of such a language family would fun, although there is admittedly scant attestation of most possible EEF languages. Here are some possible EEF languages*:
-Basque (possibly the sole surviving EEF language in modern times; also the only one with extensive attestation)
-Non-Basque Vasconic languages
-Tyrsenian languages (Etruscan, Rhaetic, and Lemnian)

That would be Hurrian and Minaon wasn't related to it
i still hold the opinion that Minoans colonized Italy and became Romans.
Can we definitively say that their languages were not Afro-Asiatic? If they were, wouldn't we have recognized it by now? They may have had some Afro-Asiatic loanwords, though, like *tawr- for "bull," which became a loanword into Indo-European. Also, the main EEF haplogroup was G2a whereas the Proto-Afro-Asiatics were almost certainly E1b or E*. I guess it is possible that G2a was assimilated into an Afro-Asiatic society, started speaking an AA language, and then split off and became the dominant haplogroup through founder effect. A similar thing happened with the South Slavs. Their main haplogroup is I2a, which was originally a WHG haplogroup, which was assimilated by EEFs and then by Indo-Europeans, and 2000 years ago it was present among the Proto-Slavs.
>I have never seen anyone group all of these languages together in one family.
You made me remember of some dude's blogspot who had a theory on Indo-Aegean and PIE-ProtoSemitic sprachbund.

Homo sapiens evolved from a species of monkey that specialized in rape. 100s of 1000s of years passed, rape after rape, until the advanced social structures that bisexual rape facilitated could evolve. We exist to rape or be raped, and the role is usually determined on the playgrounds where we practice how to rape. A human resisting his nature to rape is like a baby bird that refuses to eat; it will be tossed from the nest then raped.

>Rapists believe that a woman is nothing more than a vessel that holds the sperm that will be implanted in her. Once the sperm is there, that’s all it takes to create a baby. The woman’s role is to make sure the sperm is protected from any diseases and that they can be released at the right time. Most rape is not a one-time event. Raping a woman, once the sperm is present, is all it takes to rape her in her future.

>Rape-murderers, or rapists, usually believe in a higher power than humanity and nature, and in most cases, it is Lucifer, an imaginary demon god, rather than God himself who dictates the role and who their role is to serve. Rape is a very sacred act among male rapists, and they are always very careful to keep the rape of females secret, at least from themselves. Raping a woman is the closest thing they will ever experience to worship. Rape isn’t the worst of the horrible sins committed by rapists. They typically have a history of committing other acts of violence before the rape.

>If a woman dies after she is raped, that is a great honor to the rapist. It makes it clear he has done a service to his god, Lucifer, by ensuring the future continuation of his own humanity. And we who are born of raped women are made flesh of Lucifer to serve him. Our role in life is to find a man to rape, be raped, impregnate with his seed, and then take the resulting child to a woman that he will impregnate so he can perpetuate his own kind. And we do all this without remorse.

The Puritans, 18th century Scots, Dutch, and many others were all incredibly successful for the circumstances they found themselves in. All of these groups were united by their faith, Calvinism. What was endemic to Calvinism that allowed them to be so successful? Could countries like Poland or Hungary potentially have fared much better if they hadn't worked so hard to stamp out this religion of the middling intellectual class?

>citing what protestants wrote an argued over the course of 300 years makes one nakedly partisan
I'll read a couple of chapters of Jack Chick if you agree to read the first two chapters of Enchantments. Does that sound like a fair deal?
they do have access to the Rhine
Being a professor at Villanova University and invoking Mammon in the title of your book about the Reformation makes one nakedly partisan.

Here’s a tract to get you started:

It's less a book about the reformation and more of an Intellectual history of Protestantism/an explanation of how greed became seen as godly/ a call for a Christian (not necessarily catholic) social reformation.
You seem to be laboring under the assumption that I'm Catholic. I am not.
The comic which you linked was rather strange, the author takes issue with Christianity being a syncretic religion on the one hand and heavily criticizes the legalism of the Catholic church but then makes the argument that one cannot be legitimately faithful and receive catholic sacraments and cites revelations of all things. The two panels on purgatory seem like they should have been omitted in general, if purgatory is a fabrication then Helen will not go to it so why include those sections.
I hope you take some time to read the book which I linked :)

why did it take more than a thousand years for any European state outside of the Balkans to get strong enough to build great public objects after the fall of Rome?

They did build public objects. Norms, ethics, institutions, even human capital are all “public objects”. Building large pieces of largely useless architecture just isn’t really worthwhile most of the time.
I don't think roads or running water counts as "largely useless" to most people
The Danevirke and Offa's Dyke were basically the same thing as the Antonine Wall.
i feel like the next collapse is going to be far worse than the plague. It's like a stock market.
I don't deny there was a dark age but using an artificially inflated city whose population shrinks when it ceases to be the capital is a poor example of it

>moral superiority
>needs to beg russia on their knees to help them crush another HUNGARYAN uprising
fucking pathetic
Nationalism was the first step towards globalism. Hitler himself hated any distinctions between Germans like Prussian, Bavarian and Austrian and wanted to get rid of them. He said so himself. Not only that, he tried to implement a policy to remove any Austrian identity after it was annexed to Germany.
>Look how Austria-Hungary fared nationalist retards won

>Catholic countries tended to favor social-democracy and socialistic ideas (minus the anti-religious parts obviously)
>Protestant countries tended to favor free-market capitalism and laissez faire ideas
But what did Orthodox countries tend to favor?

We can clearly see the Protestant-Catholic split since the USA-Mexican border pretty much marks the split between the Protestant portions of the Americas and the Catholic portions, with most of Latin America and Central America tending to fall into socialism at some point during the Cold War. Additionally, Catholicism itself embraced left-wing ideas such as Distributism, Liberation Theology, and the Catholic Workers Movement, as well as denouncing Americanism as a heresy. Meanwhile, Protestantism had seemingly tightly latched onto capitalism, with nowhere near the support for socialism seen in Catholic countries, and in fact a tendency to lean so hard into capitalism that they ended up embracing Prosperity Gospel theology, believing that God wanted them to be financially successful and that material success is a sign of God's blessing.

But I know very little about Orthodoxy, especially since they were under the thumb of communist oppression for so long, so what were their views on this divide?

when you are a schizo and go off your meds. Was Islam also created by Catholics?

OP expertly makes stupid ideas sound thoughtful. There is no such thing as a 'free market', a term that probably dates to the 1960s as some kind of marketing ploy to make Capitalism sound more appealing and even-handed.

Capitalism is not historically of the political Right. The Whig Party is not "right-wing". Either economic ideas could be 'Left' or Right' depending on the political ruling class, attributes of a country's population and actual implementation.

"fall into socialism" Consider that by the middle of the 20th century, every country had adopted some aspect of Socialist policy as official state policy, with varying degrees of course, and that would only increase upon the succeeding decades.

Americanism is heresy because America is the Great Satan and places personal acquisition as one of the highest virtues, also known as greed (in addition to others, such as sodomy).
Catholics created the most laissez-faire school of economics prior to the marginalists, the School of Salamanca, however with Leo XIII & Rerum Novarum economic reforms were given the greenlight & many bishops served as interlocuters between unions & management
