starvation occurs when there is a caloric deficit in regards to a healthy diet.
starvation was common throughout the USSR.
this is a stupid point, even if they were all fat their lives would still be shit.
>factory culture
And the worst fears of the settlers around the time of the civil war, the thing that got most of the south to fight, was the idea of having to mix their society with people they had nothing in common with, who would never assimilate and form a common identity with them.
In 2022, they still call themselves "the black community" and "Black America."

Also, were you the guy that made this post earlier? >>13329765 Saying that blacks would have their revenge?

Did Rome actually integrate all of its conquered people to be 'Roman,' or did its regions have great cultural autonomy?
25 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
As long as they paid their "taxes" Rome didn't give two shits what they did locally.
Essentially because they both wanted the same thing: to be the de facto king of Rome, regardless of actual title. Pompey spent his whole life in conflict against roman politicians to assert himself as the top dog (continuing what his father started, even), Caesar was just the one guy who actually managed to defeat him. It was just political competition, just like for Marius and Sulla.
It's up for debate as to who started it. It can easily be argued that it was Pompey, since one of his tribunes proposed to have him elected dictator instead of electing consuls the year Caesar was supposed to come back from Gaul, but who the fuck knows. We only have what was passed down to us.
Romans generally tried to impress their culture onto conquered people. They did this with a graduated system of citizenship as well as establishing roman colonies in their territory, which were settled by Roman citizens. There were several levels of citizenship a Roman could have, and military service was required by the lower levels to progress to the higher ones.

They also did a lot of work assimilating local deities into the Roman religion. Getting people praying to Roman gods, paying Roman tithes, did a lot of work to erode a sense of independence from them. As well as most of the young men signing up to be soldiers so they could own land.
There was always a distinction between being a true Roman and Roman as in part of Rome. The people of the city always received benefits in being exempt from taxes until the later period and were exempt from conscription along with most of Italy up to the latest period. They gained the culture of Rome because it was an effort to expand "civility", and so they were given it as an act of grace, not necessarily as an equal.

Basically they saw everyone not from Rome as monkey niggers they needed to save from themselves.

What is the appeal of learning about wars of the past? I know very little about history in general but I would like to learn more and war is a topic I often stumble across when I look for a podcast or a youtube video. How would you sell it to someone who does not understand?
It's epic, it's exciting, it's dangerous, and very tragic. Centuries or even millenia old civilizations being undone in decades or even years, while new ones begin. They're almost always catalyst for change. Some of the most interesting things happen in or during conflict. Wars of ye olde are easier to romanticize, with so much emphasis on close battle and the infantryman that heroisim seems to be more commonplace, battles being done between men rather than machines and computers. Wars can be so complex full of detail in a short amount of time they really are their own subject. And simply human history is just full of fighting.
History has always more appealing than fiction stories to me from a really young age, ive found it a lot easier to be engaged while knowing all this shit actually happened.
War has probably inspired more poems and song than love.
Curiosity, mostly. I love history in general because I have always been curious about why things are the way they are, in terms of human society and culture. I've also always liked stories, and very often history is told through narratives. This is a kind of simplification and romanticization of events, which requires serious scholarship to fully understand the truth of, but it is nonetheless entertaining in its own right.

By 1862/1863 what was the average non-conscripted Confederate or Union soldier fighting for?

With New Orleans fallen, parts of states rejecting secession (West Virginia, East Tennessee, etc) and Union enclaves all along their coasts and moving inland, even with Lee's handful of victories did Southerners still think their odds of winning were good?

What did Unionists think of their Southern brethren?

again with these braindead nigger arguments
get off this board you retarded monkey
Read the Confederate Constitution. They outlined what they were fighting for in black and white. Don't let mainstream media or inculcating colleges and universities tell you otherwise.
Read a book like Company Aytch by Sam Watkins or find similar accounts from common Union soldiers. Most soldiers were literate and write a lot of letters and first hand accounts. Like most soldiers from every era, they were going with the flow, didn’t want to be thought of as cowards, needed coercion once the initial war fever broke, and cared about their comrades.

Who actually liked her?
She's ranked highly among other British prime ministers in many polls etc across different social groups.
But whenever I see her mentioned by an actual person they almost always hate her.

I can't wrap my head around this dissonance.

She literally gave the vast majority of council house renters their own home with the right o buy

Since when were council house tenants the typical conservative voters?
>Who actually liked her?

A lot of people who minded their own business and didn't feel the need to broadcast their political opinions to the world.

The people who hated her couldn't stop screeching about it, but the people who liked her, you never saw or heard from, except on election day.
Brits didn't deserve her.
> with the right to buy
Oh I know that game, Americans invented that game when they bought Manhattan
It still happens today

If you only listened to social media in 2019 you’d think Jeremy Corbyn was gonna sweep the election with labour getting 90% of seats

Instead Boris Johnson won a huge majority for the conservatives

Turns out conservatives don’t actually like shouting about their political views

It is the sacred duty of any proper society to ensure that its underclass is wholly excluded from the excercise of political influence. History has proven that great calamaties inevitably follow whenever this is not maintained.

>There were two ‘Reigns of Terror,’ if we would but remember and consider it; the one wrought murder in hot passion, the other in heartless cold blood; the one lasted mere months, the other lasted a thousand years; the one inflicted death upon ten thousand persons, the other upon a hundred millions; but our shudders are all for the “horrors” of the minor Terror, the momentary Terror, so to speak; whereas, what is the horror of swift death by the guillotine, compared with lifelong death from hunger, cold, insult, cruelty, and heart-break? What is swift death by lightning compared with death by slow fire at the stake? A city cemetery could contain the coffins filled by that brief Terror which we have all been so diligently taught to shiver at and mourn over; but all France could hardly contain the coffins filled by that older and real Terror—that unspeakably bitter and awful Terror which none of us has been taught to see in its vastness or pity as it deserves.

What can you tell me about it?
I once saw a really interesting article claiming that it was a major factor in the DPRK (from a DPRK supporter no less) but it has since vanished and Wayback Machine seemingly didn't archive it.
I mean, it seems like a new religious movement would motivate people to become materialist, atheistic Marxist-Leninists but I admit I have even less information than you so I'll be watching the thread.
wouldn't, I mean
Juche is not really Atheistic Marxist-Leninist, and also Cheondoism seems to be closer to the originalist conception of Buddhism/Confucianism in the sense of using religious language to explain philosophical ideas.
True, but Juche wasn't the state ideology until the post Korean war era, they were "orthodox" ML before that which entails atheism

Yes, but Nanjing massacre never happened
no the DPRK is

Prior to Furman vs Georgia when the Supreme Court temporarily suspended capital punishment, many states had the death sentence for non-homicidal rape. A substantial number of these executions happened in the South and with rare exception the executed was nearly always black. They have been referred to as "judicial lynchings."

Consider the unfortunate case of Herman Maxwell. On July 20, 1949, he allegedly raped a young, pregnant white housewife in Hemstead County, Arkansas while her husband was off working as a farmhand. According to Mrs. Nichols' testimony, Maxwell, whom she had never seen before, came to her house that morning and asked for a drink. She gave him some water and he departed. Soon afterward he returned and asked for kitchen matches. He then asked emphatically if she "had something for him." He was told no and to go away. Maxwell then chased her into the house brandishing a knife, and told her "I came here to get something and I'm going to get it before I leave." He pushed her to the floor and raped her, while threatening to use the knife if she made any noise or resisted. Maxwell also said if she told anyone he would come back and get her.

Great system
nice bait
If the woman regrets it afterwards, it means there was an intolerable level of deception involved prior to sex which means her consent was obtained under duress, which is called rape
This indolent negro did the same thing rapists usually do which is retell a fantasy version of how he wished it had happened, regardless of whether or not you agree with pre-Furman justice in America (ie. that non-homicidal rape was a capital crime in some states).
Porn wasn't readily obtainable in the 1940s so people couldn't have really developed interracial sex or other kink fetishes back then. Today tons of literally mentally ill people are walking around because porn has destroyed their mind.

No. There was no such distinction. Europe thought they were uplifting the colonial peoples, who lived in what can be described as backwards conditions. Westerners fawned over colonial peoples and there was widespread, all-society public outcry when wrongs against them became known, like in the Congo Free State.

Very few fought for the Special Reserve/Auxies. Most of them were part of the already present Royal Irish Constabulary, the regular police force.
