>The contrasting American and Italian attitudes toward the 1891 New Orleans lynchings are perhaps best summarized by Theodore Roosevelt's comment. Roosevelt, then serving on the United States Civil Service Commission, wrote to his sister Anna Roosevelt Cowles on March 21, 1891:

>Monday we dined at the Camerons; various dago diplomats were present, all much wrought up by the lynching of the Italians in New Orleans. Personally I think it rather a good thing, and said so.
Why do people obsess over Wilson's, Jackson's and Jefferson's racism, but not this?

But most of the things we want are still in the material world, right? So armies can still control real wealth. Digital tokens are only worth anything if they can get you real tangible goods.

A big account balance on a screen might feel good, but all the utility comes from nice cars, good food, women, hot tubs, etc.

Although, I suppose more of the things we want to consume are digital. Socialization occurs online. Porn replaces sex. Entertainment for many mostly comes digitally. So maybe we are becoming more divorced from the material world.

Perhaps the neet who spends 16 hours a day shit posting, fapping to cuck pron, trading his autism bux for crypto tokens, and only receiving physical sustinance when it is delivered to his door through an online order is truly breaking the shackles of this world. They are the true Gnostics, overcoming the need for the material.

>How can a man change his birth? He can only change his actions.
Exactly. Actions are transient and meaningless, race is eternal. NAXALT! -> Regression to the mean of the population. You are insignificant, your children and childrens children will be about average, Long-term improvement is gained if you increase the racial average, everyone will be dragged upwards.
"A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit."
"And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good."

“Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.
Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt.
Serpents, brood[n] of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?
Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city,
that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.
Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.

What made you lose faith in the marxist view of history?

For me it was realising Marxists made up a fake narrative about European nobles sending their younger sons away to explain the crusades

Have you ever looked into Marx genealogy? He was a wealthy descendant of a long lineage of head rabbis and powerful money lenders. He was definitely conspiring to trick the goyim.

Given the unique evil of Germany of the mid 30th century and the fact that the regime didn't need a heavy use of propaganda or state violence to keep the population in check, what made the germans of this time so uniquely evil?
Unlike states such as the USSR where the populace had to be kept in a state of fear the germans supported the NSDAP in all their actions.

Isn't this the guy that made a """serious""" video that he thought a lot before releasing that claimed nationalsocialism was actually socialism and quoted political narrative of the time - removing the political context - and presenting it as an objective claim instead of simple rethoric to gain guillible followers?
>>
>>10528292
It wouldn't surprise me. He's also the guy who quotes Glantz to claim that Hitler made the right decision to prioritize attacking the Ukraine in the Eastern Front to secure oil, ignoring the context that Glantz brings up that oil was an afterthought and that the decision to strike south both in 1941 and in 1942 were governed by operational concerns, trying to strike at exposed Soviet formations, and the economic stuff was an afterthought.

Japan: 140,000 sqm
California: 160,000 sqm
Italy: 116,000 sqm
Uk: 90,000 sqm
It's real, but consider how long and skinny Japan is. Not that surprising. Japan is 1900 mi long, California is 700 mi long.

So how many civilians were killed during the Hun invasions? The Avars & Magyars?
What about the Goths, Vandals & Lombards?
For that matter were there massacres or mass deaths of non-combatants in the revolutionary war or the civil war? The war of 1812?
I guess my general question is how bad was it for non-combatants during those invasions/wars?

There is no higher authority than threat of violence. It establishes the dynamic through which all other forms of negotiation follow.
