The south had to introduce a one-drop rule because there was so much race mixing going on that you were getting slaves light skinned enough to pass for a white person, which means the quadroon and octoroon rape babies of slaves were themselves giving birth to more rape babies.

That’s why southerners spank their monkeys to Anne Frank cancer. It’s a racial memory of a time when they were allowed to take advantage of oppressed young girls

Pre-Christian Anglo-Saxon culture and pre-Christian Norse culture were almost identical. They even shared many of the same myths and spiritual beliefs. That being the case, why have Vikings become so big in pop culture whereas most normies barely know who the Anglo-Saxons even were?

Anglo Saxon Christianized before Scandinavians did.
We have significant writings of Scandinavian culture from Iceland, we don't for the Saxons.
the christian missionaries should stop with the christianization of local cultures identity because they're not christian people should find faith on their own. The missionaries probably don't want their converts to give up christianity if the missionary told them to stop going to the which doctor or doing things of the old belief.
Well you kind of can't. If you push them too far, they're going to reject you. The fact ring around the roses is a fucking pagan flower worship ritual and "Easter" comes from the fertility God ritual "Eostre" suggest as long you accepted the J man, they'd take it.
But then how does Islam attract such zealous converts?
Well how do you know it did. The Yazidis still worship a version of islam where they worship Satan and he's said to be a peacock.

What was the closest era/setting in history to the hollywood, or rather the spaghetti western portrayal of the 'wild west' i.e outlaws, lawmen, wandering rogues and a vast frontier land?
pic unrelated
Western movies are usually set during the post-Civil War years, and before automobiles became even somewhat common, which places them usually between 1866 up to the very early 1900s. Normally, the more conventional time period is some time between the late 1860s through the 1880s, with some set earlier or later than that. A notable Civil War era western is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and one set after 1900 is Duck, You Sucker.

It seems most of the hippies and co back then held similar views to the liberals today that /his/ and reddit like, for instance the hippies would be out in the streets right now for George Floyd and you agree that's a good thing.

The difference though seems to be that the hippies and woodstock guys seemed to be a lot more chill and relaxed about wanting peace, love, equality, and tolerance. These guys were sitting back smoking weed, having sex, having picnics in fields. The liberals of today many of them are obnoxious and extremely violent as well as mentally ill.

Is it not simply the case that the hippies and the 60s long haired guys did peace, love, and diversity the right way and the liberals today are poor and unhinged imitations?

It doesn't matter to the company if the money comes from you or your dad anon.
Hippies became extremely ruthless capitalists and neoliberals as they aged. A lot of the 80's 'corporate raiders' had a 'hippie phase' a couple decades earlier. It's too common to merely be a coincidence.
Yes it does, very few people inherit enough money to sustain their entire life. The perfect WC, worker-consumer, must be a well-behaved, hardworking citizen who loves his job; not some smelly, useless hippie spouting anti-consumerist propaganda under influence of illegally purchased drugs.
>thinking they can plan that far ahead
Hippies were retards that caused the west's downward spiral which we are still experiencing to this day. A real watershed moment where a culture began committing suicide.

Not all of their ideas were bad, but the bad ones have caused irreparable consequences.

Its November 1918, the war just ended and you are tasked with leading the Versailles peace talks concerning Europe

What do you do differently to prevent WWII?

You need to deal with the following:
>France demands Alsace-Lorraine and massive reparations for its losses during the war
>Great Britain demands limiting Germany's naval power
>USA demands that small nations should be given independence (so no empire restoration)
>massive anarchy and turmoil in former A-H, Russian Empire and Ottoman empire, every nationality demands independence and fights over everpresent border disputes

Give everyone self-determination, ensure Germany stays democratic and form a continental coalition with everyone against communism. Alsace-Lorraine gets to choose its own destiny, no reparations and no demilitarization (atleast until communism has been dealt with).
Fuck Britain, fuck France and hail Wilson the benevolent.

Anyone else think it kinda sucks Naval warfare went the way of Aircraft carriers instead of huge battleships. I mean look at this awesome aestetic of the Yamato. Aircraft carriers look fucken gay. Military theory ruined our chance to have giant ships firing huge cannons at eachother. Instead we get gay flyboys yeehawwing and shit.

sailing around in a huge blob of missile and sub defense ships with your carriers
>Military theory ruined our chance to have giant ships firing huge cannons at eachother.
If you had giant ships, they would be too expensive and too scarce to risk engaging in surface duels. There's a reason why Yamato and Musashi did so little in the Pacific War, even after the carriers were withdrawn post-Santa Cruz.
They should have either invented missiles way earlier or not invented airplanes at all.
It's only natural that aircraft carriers and submarines are the gods of the sea.

There were many major gun battles in ww2. The "problem", for popular historians, is they were more like skirmishes and a bit of background knowledge is needed to understand why they did not charge each other and clash swords spectacularly, not much but too much to pique people's interest.

Aside from Italy, pushing through France to Germany, and the strategic bombing campaign which destroyed the Luftwaffe, yes.
>But most of the US "island hopping" was of no strategic value or importance to the end of the war
Caused massive attrition that drove Japanese aviation into irreversible decline, forced the destructive engagement of the Japanese navy off Guadalcanal and in the Philippines.
Penetrated Japan's defensive perimeter to obtain bases for bombing and an invasion.
>The war in the Pacific was won in China and Burma.
Found the Anglo.
>Iwo was taken with six months left in the war.

There weren't any raids launched from Iwo Jima or Okinawa.
The raids started in 1944 and lasted until the end.

The massive balls of the Muslim and the Croat.
The European Axis powers had a greater population and a bigger combined military than the Soviets. The Soviets were consistently outnumbered along the whole front from 1941-1942. The Germans lost the “war of attrition” despite using endless human waves and Zerg rush tactics because of superior Soviet tanks and tactics
