How did Europe lose to a bunch of baguettes?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>largest population in europe + nation-wide conscription means huge fucking armies
>meritocracy means that talent > birth or wealth
>strong espirit de corps because of revolutionary fervour
>defensible borders (rhine, alps, pyranees)
Mostly a combination of these four factors

Was the Vendée genocide good for the war or bad?
>>
>>7969175
It forced them to send 150,000 soldiers far away from the main theatres of war, which was a huge investment, but if the revolt succeeded the entire Revolution might have been threatened, so in the long term it was probably worth it to crack down on it so hard (even if it was morally despicable).
>>
>>7968726
with the exception of Britain (who couldn't do shit without continental puppets), basically yes
>>
>>7968670
France has consistently had the largest population of any country in Europe up until Germany unified. And during the Revolution France’s use of mass conscription of the peasantry was revolutionary (heh) and allowed them to field absurdly large armies compared to everyone else.

What was Hitlers offical opinion on the Americna Civil War? Did he support the Confederacy or the Union, or did he feel sympathy for the blacks and native americans caught in the middle?

I know he supported America’s 1924 national origins act as a racially healthy policy. Dunno about the civil war. The confederates would have niggerfied and spicified the southern states faster than the Union ever did with their retarded golden circle meme.

I despise modern Islam as much as the next true believer, but it’s inaccurate to call Medieval or Early Modern Islamic countries/empires “hellholes” or “backward”. Those descriptions only started to become true in the 19th century.

If the Christian God is all good, where does evil come from?

If you have free will, why aren’t you perfect? Do you not want to be righteous and sinless like Jesus? And do you not have the freedom to align your will with this goal? Then what accounts for your unrighteousness? Where is the freedom? You’re a slave to your desires.
>>
>>7966801
Evil, sin, is nothingness - it is the absence of being. It is what occurs when God is not present - it is a gap in reality, so to speak. Evil does not *exist* in any fashion; evil is non-existence.

Phrased another way, evil is what occurs when a thing acts contrarily to its own nature. The fallen state of mankind is a falling-away from our true nature, a falling away from what it means to be human. This does not come from God, but from ourselves, from our own turning-away from our nature, and therefore from God, in whose image our nature was fashioned.

If blacks actually farmed then why don’t they have light skin? All farming people developed light skin when they stopped their hunter gatherer vitamin D rich diet and switched to crops like wheat, rice, potatoes.
>>
Are you retarded?
>>
>>7969209
Are you? Light skin mutation is a consequence of farming and switching to a crop based diet. If blacks were actually into agriculture as much as 4000 years ago as the resources claim by saying they farmed pearl mullet and their own “rice” then they wouldn’t be characol looking.

Modern day soldiers get way more respect than old-times soldiers ever did. There is a reason why, in the past, governments often had to force people to join the army, and many still do.

>A team from Oxford University has discovered that the Celts, Britain's indigenous people, are descended from a tribe of Iberian fishermen who crossed the Bay of Biscay 6,000 years ago. DNA analysis reveals they have an almost identical genetic "fingerprint" to the inhabitants of coastal regions of Spain, whose own ancestors migrated north between 4,000 and 5,000BC.
>The discovery, by Bryan Sykes, professor of human genetics at Oxford University, will herald a change in scientific understanding of Britishness.
>People of Celtic ancestry were thought to have descended from tribes of central Europe. Professor Sykes, who is soon to publish the first DNA map of the British Isles, said: "About 6,000 years ago Iberians developed ocean-going boats that enabled them to push up the Channel. Before they arrived, there were some human inhabitants of Britain but only a few thousand in number. These people were later subsumed into a larger Celtic tribe... The majority of people in the British Isles are actually descended from the Spanish."

>Why didn't any of the allies tell them how retarded they were acting?
The British were gaslighting the Greeks into continueing, and Lloyd George's government was trying to back them more, but opposition came due to the economic exhaustion Britain had. They also didn't directly aid the Greeks for fear of antagonising the French by using the Greeks to gain a better bargaining position against them. The French were fine with the Greeks continueing until they decided to cut their losses and accept Syria without Cilicia, and finally, the Italians were annoyed the Greeks received Smyrna/Izmir (despite the city having mostly Greeks and some Turks), and begun funding the Turks in secret, and giving up their concession zone. They were the embodiment of the phrase "cutting your nose off to spite your face", they couldn't accept someone else got a bigger piece of the pie than them, so they throw the whole thing on the ground, and have the nerve to complain about 'mutiliated victory'.
