I literally have no idea what happened here between the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the rise of Fascism.
Can I get a quick rundown?
I know but here's the thing. They broke up into a bunch of little nations with a few of these little nations having enough money to cause shit for centuries and other ones being conquered or becoming a big kingdom. Simply put the north became city states and fucked with each other and were fucked with while going into trade and art and stuff. The pope was king of the middle and when not running the church was defending or expanding his kingdom. The south was conquered by the bourbons or something and did it's own thing while Sicily was at points either a part of that, independent, or part of someone else. It's far more complicated than that but thats the gist of it. Also a guy called Garibaldi unified Italy and convinced the Pope to accept being the Vatican for independence in exchange for the rest of the city. A bunch of really good artists were from here at the time, the French fucked with them. It was a mercenary paradise, and the Medici family are important. They petered out after unification in the manufacturing race and had a hard time seeing themselves as one country again for awhile and local loyalty is still huge since each city was more or less a kingdom for so long and the north and the south and Sicily hate each other. There is a lot more but that is as quick as I can do it.
Germanic Chieftains
Medieval kingdom
More trade
Decentralizing authority
City states
Trading and trading and trading
Feuding between merchants and nobility
Feuding between pope supporters and Emperor supporters

nazis were state capitalist at the very least though anon, and that circles back to being socialist because every "socialist" country IS state capitalist, see: China, USSR
Just because a country calls itself socialist doesn't mean they are socialist. China and Nazi Germany are both examples of that.
Well, he's right.

Where does that number even come from, nobody ever gave me a source for it
It did.
This meme is to history what animal farm is to communist debates and what the Holocaust is to nazism. Nothing else has caused more harm to discussion than this meme.
here is some historical survival curves if you are curious.
It is a estimated avarage, they used the actual life-expectancy of 50 to 60 years and avaraged it with infant mortality.

Why can't the same arguments used to defend imperialism & slavery not be used to defend communism?

Under slavery, you had free food, free healthcare, a place to stay, and guaranteed right to work.

Without imperialism, many countries of inferior races would have not have the advancements in technology brought by settlers. Communism apparently these things too, yet, communists angry when you U.S. imperialism good for Native Americans.

I don't see why leftists get enraged when the facts don't lie.

Someone realized that the number of views is a little better, so now everyone is doing it.

There is a kind of modern community tragedy in this habit where every individual YouTuber is better off using clickbait thumbnails, but YouTube as a whole is losing its appeal, and content creators are slowly killing their own platform, but no one is interested to actually stop doing it.
If it's free, there shouldn't be a meaningful opportunity cost. If your employer gives you 'free' housing in exchange for a 20% salary cut, it's not free. Slavery and imperialism both have obvious opportunity costs, compared to the ready alternative. Communism does create opportunity costs, but the ready alternative is far less clear on how it would affect those (not being Communist is not sufficient for economic development).
A system a ideological one is a vague blueprint, in practice all socialist experiments are they own thing and respond to cultural idiocincracy.

How come the Roman empire was deemed “too big to handle,” hence the partition, but China has managed to remain as this monstrous united entity for millennia, despite endless rebellions, wars and regime changes?

A: Rome had no civil-military stability, and suffered constant coups. This directly led to overtaxation, economic crises, hyperinflation, declines in trade, and a range of of other self destructive behaviors. China basically didn't have military coups because the military was politically lower on the totem pole than the Confucian bureaucracy and the nobility.

B: Europe has an enormous number of natural barriers and a lower population. Using a lower number of resources to defend a militarily more indefensible frontier is naturally more challenging. This is also why the Byzantine Empire didn't collapse, they were a much richer, much more geographically defensible region.

Any answer other than these two is brainlet

>I'm not speaking here as a politician (as a politician this statement damages me!) but as a learned man trying to establish the Truth. As a judge I would without a doubt sentence Adolf Hitler to death (I am a supporter of death penalty - are you?) because there were a lot of reasons to do so - but when it comes to the Holocaust... I'd have to acquit him!!!

What is fascism? I still don't get it.

Trannies say fascism is when you call someone a nigger in walmart, and boomers say its just another way of saying socialism.

That’s not what I said you stupid bitch. I said the Italians are the best example of fascism, they literally fucking invented it and implemented it first. I don’t give a fuck what some German pagan larpers did
It's state capitalism with hugo boss costumes.

Meme country, lasted 18 months, barely had control on half the country, literally a puppet for Third Reich

Is Calvinism bullshit?

Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.

Was male virginity ever valued historically?

People mutate and their genetic quality deteriorates, especially if the father is old, and especially if we haven't been under harsh Darwinian conditions for 200 years.
Never heard of mutations?
Not only does it not work that (ever heard of recessive genes?) they're just not relevant for human reproduction, especially not in the past when people didn't even have a clue of such things.
yes, Germanic males who were virgins into their 30s were seen as more vigorous than their married peers.
it was no fap but no sex
