In three middle ages, the kings didn't really care about how you did your work, as long as the end result of harvest was the same.
Its not until industry evolves that runs on capital do we start seeing a typical work schedule. In this case, the workers did use coffee beans and coca plants

I am honestly kind of shocked there aren't any "traditional" ways to make meth given how simple it is chemically. You'd think medieval peasants would have found out how to make meth out of cow dung and be out of their minds 24/7 with it.

Yes. Asian nations are very mercantilist and predatory in their dealings with both each other and trading partners overseas.

China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan all leech know-how and technology from the West, then use corruption and bribery to manipulate foreign countries into opening their markets to their manufactures, while keeping their own tightly shut.

>HEHE HAHA DUMB LAOWAI NOT OUR FAULT YOU STUPID AND EASILY MANIPULATED

No, but this doesn't change the hostile and manipulative nature of the Asia trade, which is not to the benefit of Western nations that miss out on potential export earnings and profits as a result. And there's nothing wrong with pointing this out.

>>
>>14537394
The result would’ve been operation downfall, they were so anticipated of this invasion that they expected it to be the most brutal in the entire war, as a matter fact they didn’t start running out of Purple Hearts until the early 20th century after the Iraq war, yes this would’ve costed more American lives than the entirety of the Korean, Vietnam, gulf wars, iraq wars, every other American conflict in the Cold War and the war in terror combined.

>>14537772

The soviet invasion was almost completely irrelevant for rhe Japanese surrender.
We know this because the surrender was drafted and approved before the Soviet invasion, and the Japanese emperor makes no mention of the Soviet invasion, but explicitly emphasize on the nuclear bomb in his surrender speech to the nation.

>>14537750
The benefit of the nuclear weapons for Japan is often overlooked.
The Japanese government, facing social and economic collapse due to the blockade, wanted to surrender but couldn't justify it to the nation and certainly not to the military. The nuclear weapon gave the Japanese government a valid cause for surrender, it was easier to convince the nation and military that they lost due to an unstoppable superweapon rather than unsustainable domestic conditions.

I'm this guy on a spiritual level, only instead of anteaters it's military history.
I've invested so many years of my life, time that could have been spent with family and loved ones, essentially researching people from around the globe killing each other en masse at the manipulation/coercion of a sociopathic few.
I used to think you didn't have to be a genius or super knowledgeable to know war is bad, but to purely loathe war with every fiber of your being it may be necessary to spend years of your life researching it.
I have dozens if not hundreds of books pertaining to military history that I had plans to read, that I know never want to see again, let alone pick up. Hundreds if not thousands of dollars that could have gone to food or medical care, wasted on this resentable subject and field that I can no longer even think of without getting either depressed or distressed.

Word to the wise; if you are beginning to have feelings in line with mine, abandon ship sooner rather than later. Changing to a different conflict will not halt or even slow your resentment of military history, and in fact only hasten it. If you are beginning to feel hesitant or tired now, then you will only feel worse in a years time. Let me tell you right now that if you persist in spite of these feelings, you will only regret it later. At the very, very least pick a different historical subject/field.

if this is true then explain picrel? This wasnt the first time God expressed himself by killing people

Also it has always been the idea that horrible things happening in the world is a result of God punishing us. So if he doesnt hate the sinner then why do all of this?

If all of us are sinners then doesnt that mean God hates us all?

God sent angels to see (really weird for omnipresence or omniscience) if they good. They didn’t find them so the angels confirmed to God he should destroy it. Abraham did beg for the whole populance to not be destroyed for his own family and friends and home’s sake. He also didn’t want innocent people to be destroyed along with it. Abraham exited the town before it’s destroyed with his family where one of his female relatives get turned salt. God checked the city out for strangers who visited him and prayed for the city’s destruction. Also since it’s the Old Testament God probably did want to destroy the town ignoring the good people’s doom just to also to the rebelious and proudly ignorant of his word, and Abraham probably believed the people did deserve get punished in some, at least after they died.

"Love the sinner but hate the sin" is not a phrase that comes from the Bible, it's just a slogan concoted by protestands like What Would Jesus Do? and the like.

God's punishments of our sins happen in spite of the love that He feels for us, just like how a parent punishes a rebellious son without ceasing to love him.

god also loves killing people unrelated to that though

>The soul of the Serbian defense effort, however, was its commander, Voivode (Marshal) Radomir Putnik... Worn out from his exertions and in poor health, Putnik was taking the waters at Bad Gleichenberg in Austria when war broke out between Serbia and Austria–Hungary. Putnik was allowed to cross the border after the personal intervention of Francis Joseph with Austro-Hungarian border officials.

Was there any internal criticism levied at the Austrian Emperor for this act of retardation?

>>
>>14539988
Considering the actions of the Serbian Army and Partisans, such a gentlemanly action wasn't reciprocated - making it wasted. I personally would have gotten better sleep after a successful invasion of Serbia, assuming such a thing would have been more possible had Putnik been retained, than after returning their star general to the front followed up by various disasters.

Having first child, mom fell in love with Montessori campus for daycare. I did too honestly. I used the internet first to understand Montessori and the status quo is very superficial and contradictory to what I’ve read sofar of Maria’s “The Montessori Method”. What are your understanding/opinions/experience with Montessori itself and also looking for input on the campuses.
>>
I went to a Montessori preschool and have a fair number of memories from that time. Then, weirdly, no memories until third grade. I was in normie classes until third grade which is when I started gifted classes.

I take that to indicate the Montessori preschool was more intellectually stimulating than the few years after that

It's also worth noting that this specifically brought about the second collapse of the League of Three Emperors with the original alliance collapsing after the Berlin Conference following the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878. There was specifically a lot of anger in Russia towards Bismarck, specifically, following the Berlin Conference. There's clearly a pattern here that shows attempts to limit Russian expansionism in the Balkans was the cause for the relationships between the three nations becoming strained.

Because by that point the western world had come to Japan, slapped their dicks on the table and won. The US bullied a lot of people to help China, because they saw in china a similar colonially-abused power(and a huge trading partner/potential ally), whereas with Japan they literally walked in, blew up some shit, and forced Japan into the modern era.

The "Kitchen Debate" was widely held as one of Nixon's finest hours as he went into a heated exchange with Khrushchev on the merits of socialism versus capitalism, the translators flanking the two men barely able to keep up. At the US exhibit in Moscow was showcased an average American home, complete with all the modern furnishings and appliances a working class family in 1959 might have. Khrushchev countered that vacuum cleaners and electric washing machines were "capitalist frivolities" and useless. He added that the average Soviet citizen could easily enjoy these standards of living if they desired, but sacrificed such selfish creature comforts for the greater benefit of the nation. "Our people prefer to have rockets instead, which are better than American rockets." "Wouldn't you prefer we discuss the merits of washing machines over rockets? Is that what you want?" Nixon replied. "If it was merely about quality of life, we would bury you," said Khrushchev. "But instead your generals have said 'Let us compete in rockets.'"

The American observers present felt Nixon had won the argument hands-down for he was decidedly cooler and more level-headed than the hot-tempered Khrushchev. He himself thought he could have done better, but he had a plan to get even. When he opened the American exhibition in Moscow, he had obtained the promise of getting to speak live and uncensored on Soviet radio and TV, and he used this to the full. Nixon countered Soviet charges that the model home shown at the exhibition was simply a Potemkin village and not representative of reality, he read off statistics showing that there were 56 million registered motor vehicles in the United States, 50 million TV sets, and 143 million radio sets. Approximately 70% of Americans could boast of home ownership. "These figures show that the United States has come closer than any society in history to a classless society and near-universal prosperity."
