Any thoughts on this guy's ideas? I started watching some of his lectures on youtube and being the fedora that I am I find his theories about behavioural truth that appear in stories and myths as well as his arguments about alternate truths depending on your pre suppositions to be very interesting.
This is a very long one but I find this a good "summary" of his views: https://youtu.be/07Ys4tQPRis
This dude is weird to me in the sense that with practically everything he says -except on the topic on religion- I find him to be completely on point, but he likes to put things in sort of apocalyptic language and it's hard to not think of his views as unnecessarily hyperbolic to some degree.
>SJWs LITERALLY WANT TO DESTROY EVERYTHING WE VALUE
>It is well-known that brutal mass rapes were committed against German women; both before and after world war II. Over 100,000 women were raped in Berlin alone.
>The phrase "from eight to 80" was used to describe potential victims of Soviet mass-rape. "Red Army soldiers don't believe in 'individual liaisons' with German women," wrote the playwright Zakhar Agranenko in his diary when serving as an officer of marine infantry in East Prussia.

>>2097703 I'm using your thread anon. What's the best place to start with the french revolution? I've read about the oxford history of the french revolution by william doyle, liberty or death by peter mcphee and citizens by simon schama, although I heard the last is biased and extremely negative.
>>2097728 Well, I've only read a couple of books myself and wanted to use this thread to exchange opinions.
From your picks I'd say the only thing you're missing is the Marxist viewpoint. Eric Hobsbawm would probably be your best bet. You'd probably cover more ground if you didn't read Citizens because it's about 800 pages long though I can't really comment on how useful it is because I honestly saw it as a chore to read.

Anyone have Aum Shinrikyo beat for abosolute madman levels?
Behold. It is I, Caliph Friedrich ibn Neetshah, first Caliph of the Ubermensch paradise of Hyperborea. The First of the rightly guided Caliphs. I, Friedrich ibn Neetshah (aesthetics be upon him), am the final messenger of Western philosophy. There will be no philosopher after me.
I implore the faithful to follow the Five Pillars of Self-Overcoming. For these are mandatory to be offered entrance into Nietzschean Jannah.

How did the relatively insignificant and easily conquered Canaanites/Israelites have such an impact on world religions as compared with the much more powerful empires of Babylon, Hittites,Greeks, etc ?
What is it about the Abrahamic faiths that made it so salient vs. the religious customs of more significant civilizations.
Sure, Zoroastrianism, Atenism, Roman polytheism, and Sumerian myths may have influenced monotheism, but in the end of the day the three big religions undeniably originate from the Hebrews and their belief in yahweh.
bonus question: so its pretty much confirmed that the Hebrew were just an offshoot of Canaanites and Judaism just formed from cult worship of one deity in the Canaanite pantheon?
The Northern Territories are land where the Soviet Union unilaterally abandoned the Japanese Soviet Union Agreement and invaded after the end of World War II. Actually, Japan does not demand the return of all the lost territory. The land that Japan is requesting is only a part of the land taken away.
Current Japan is in the wrong negotiation. Japan should have demanded all of the territory deprived of Russia. And Japan should have strongly insisted to receive apologies and compensation from Russia. Of course, Russia will not accept Japan's request. But that's... Comment too long.

You know I could flip that question on its head, right? Are Protestants Christians? How can they be Christians if they get to found their own Churches? What arrogance! To break away from the Church founded by Christ Himself!
If Muslims are against pagan worship and idolatry, why do they pray five times a day in the direction of a cube with pagan origins?
Once every lunar year, the Bedouin tribes would make a pilgrimage to Mecca. Setting aside any tribal feuds, they would worship their pagan gods in the Kaaba and trade with each other in the city. Islam would later adopt the established traditions of the Bedouin tribes, such as encouragement of trade during the Hajj, but replacing the worship of their pagan gods with Allah.
What was the actual purpose of this thing ? I mean, obviously it was used to stab people, but when was it used ? I don't see how it could be used by soldiers in a battle, so was it made for dueling ? maybe it's for civilian self defense ? Maybe the city guards carried these ?
>>2091309 >What was the actual purpose of this thing ? Killing. >I mean, obviously it was used to stab people There, you answered your own question. >but when was it used ? Its usage began in the late 15th century, and it (along with the sabre, which was used by cavalry, and designs based on it and the sabre) was used until swords dropped out of use. >I don't see how it could be used by soldiers...

>>2091309 The rapier developed from the side-sword, which was essentially an arming sword with a complex hilt. Rapiers for battlefield use were generally a bit sturdier. During the 17th century, rapiers became narrower and longer, focussing on the thrust. They were primarily carried for civilian self-defence. They were also used for duelling (especially under the premise that at that time most duels were far less regulated and 'institutionalised' and happened on the spot and were thus essentially a case of civilian self-defence).
