You and what army?

Communism was the greatest gift to the German Nation since it fucked eastern europe way beyond they could have ever dreamed of.
The expulsions made Germany even stronger because the refugees settled in the metro industrial areas where they were much more worth than in the agricultural areas.
To this day these areas remain underdeveloped shitholes.
me and the EU and literally every single organization of relevance
Germans invented the idea of nationalism. Nationalism is an irrational idea that people want to believe in and that the human mind finds very comforting. It creates the illusion of purpose and also gives rise to a senseless struggle. But all this is in vain. Rational people don't want them to be around and be responsible for their countries.

>Confucianism: "A good government is one in which people obey their rulers, and rulers do their jobs well and actually rule their people. Also rulers should know to recognize the talent of their subjects, and should endeavor to acquire these people to their service via a meritocratic bureaucracy."
>Korea and Japan: "Bro this totally means we should establish caste system where you can only be a member of a certain caste based on birth. Fuck merit, lmao."

How the fuck did the "Confucian" civilizations of Korea and Japan ever come up with BS which held people back as opposed to the meritocracy that Confucianism actually wanted fostered?

>In Korea you can only be a member of the upper class if you were born in the Yangban Class.

As far as I know, Yangban were for all intents and purposes hereditary post in bureaucracy. When you get a post as an official, a few generations on, everyone gets to be a yangban. If none of these get a post, it's back to the ricefields.
Likewise, the number of Yangban was steadily increasing throughout. You could get into Yangban, it was simply next to impossible to commit the resources needed for training for the common folk.
Shinto and Buddhism are religions, mate. What's Confucianism got to do with it?

Is this nonsense, made up?
I find the idea that giants existed pretty easy to believe but the fact that there's archaeological evidence supporting the idea is new to me. Consider that gigantism is an observable medical condition and that in the past most people were shorter. Also consider that for a long time people were saying that pygmies didn't exist. It makes sense to believe that extremes on the other end would exist. Anyway, thoughts?
did they have too much of growth hormone or something?
People affected by gigantism do, but these bones suggest a height even greater than the tallest people known to ever live. Why? Well, they are dead so we do not know.
I mean, I don't see why it's not plausible. We had literal hobbits we probably had giants too.
Wonder why they died off though.
Well considering that pygmies are constantly being enslaved, killed, and cannibalized, it was probably like that but in the extreme. Like to the point where literally nobody was left.

Why does IQ not correlate with quality of life in Black nations?
Why do Ethiopians have the same or lower IQs than West and Southern Africans? Does this suggest that all of these groups had the same potential for early civilization as we saw in Ethiopia?
IQ doesn't seem to vary at all in African nations, regardless of current wealth or the existence of pre colonial civilizations or whatever they may have achieved, is this meaningful?

If all blacks nations and groups worldwide have an IQ below retardation, how were the cultures, civilizations and kingdoms that were present come about?

> self-sufficient group of people
West helps them. Should they really count?
Western "aid" is a meme. The only aid that seems to help is medical aid, and a fair amount of that comes from developing countries like Cuba.

Well over half the planet receives foreign aid.

The entire reason I got into IQ research was that I couldn't just take a test that declared 99% of black people legally retarded at face value. It seems that that was correct.
Yes he did. I literally proved that to you. Wicherts was wrong, as low SES samples are representative of Africa while the elite samples he included (secondary schools) are both unrepresentative and hollow for g (education doesn't affect g (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4445388/)
I already provided you with Becker's high quality analysis. Wicherts is both outdated and wrong. Read Lynn's response: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/247087393_The_average_IQ_of_sub-Saharan_Africans_assessed_by_the_Progressive_Matrices_A_reply_to_Wicherts_Dolan_Carlson_van_der_Maas
Read Rindermann's moderate view (outdated as he now supports a lower estimate but whatever):

Rural-Urban debate is another issue. Garret Jones had a slide that showed Chinese IQ over time. This is all irrelevant anyways since the Flynn effect is irrelevant. IQ scores may go up, but scores are meaningless by themselves. I could get 160IQ if I had the answer sheet in front of me. Scores are only useful if they estimate latent variables (mostly g). The Flynn effect largely doesn't.

This is a troll but I'll respond anyways. James Thompson has a PhD in Psychology, has published multiple papers on the topic and I posted him to review Becker and post Becker's statements.
She claims that she is engaged with a conservative White man "with a fetish", and that they will marry each others in October. If you look at some of the selfies she posted on /fit/, you can even see tabs on her computer showing that she is working on an Excel sheet or something that has something to do with the guests for the marriage.

Ive heard from Paraguayans of a man that survived the war having lost his legs and arms, so he was always lying on a basket.
But they had to repopulate the country after losing most men, so the women of the village would pass the basket around to fuck him.


the balkanization of spanish america isn't completely nonesensical, as in, the borders aren't drawn or arbitrary, except for unexplored jungle borders. they are all former provinces or districts of the spanish empire.

Ecuador was the Audiencia de Quito, a territory with its own supreme court of justice because it was important and too far away from Lima to be well served by Lima, and Bolivia was Audiencia de Charcas (for a long time, that was the supreme court of Justice for colonial Argentina and Paraguay too)
Chile was a Capitania General (territoy ruled by military commander), and so was Venezuela.

They also specifically requisitioned grain to continue to feed the army and the workers and to continue exports in order to buy more heavy machinery, a policy that would deliberately starve millions while also making 5 year plan number go up

>In the reconstructed lexicon linking the individual to the clan, *h4erós meant a "member of one’s own group", "one who belongs to the community in contrast to an outsider", which would give the Indo-Iranian term árya (an endonym) and the Irish aire ("noble, chief").[40][36] It is unlikely however that the word had an ethnic connotation, and we do not know if Proto-Indo-European speakers had a term to designate themselves as a group.[36]

Why would this not be an ethnic term? Is there any other language which has such a simple base word that means something as vague as "insider"? By all means, anything fulfilling this function is a demonym, as can be seen by the fact that Aryan was in fact used in this manner. That it would come to be interpreted as "noble/elite" in Europe is hardly surprising since this also occurred in India, after we could confirm it was originally an ethnic term prior. This entire position against describing IEs as Aryans is based on resentment against Nazis.

How is it /tv/? Only the pic is
The only thing that will happen is the extension of the war for at least a couple of years. The Soviet Union will be paralyzed by the loss of a competent leader, and it will probably take at least that long for a capable successor to come to power. It would be bad, but this is probably not the end of the Soviet Union. The legacy of the Great Leader and the will of the people to follow communism will remain. However, everything would be different if it were not for the guiding hand of a capable leader.
>competent leader
is this a joke?
