did he do anything but die?
Had an impressive little state going, centralized his realm, probably would have been named "King of Burgundy" by the HRE and forged the Netherlands into a realm more capable of dealing with French advancement ... if he didn't die. First thing his daughter did was reverse all his changes and turn her hand in marriage into a crisis for France that left a permanent mark of the French psyche.
still as fabulous

Zaolzie was illegally annexed by Czechoslovakia when Poland was severily losing its war with Bolshevik Russia, because Czechs didnt expect Poles to actually launch counterinvasion and win the war.
Czechia should've returned Zaolzie in 1921 in the first place desu.
What are some history memes you hate?
>Monroe doctrine was a real thing
>South America somehow owes its indepence to the US
When in reality:
>USA was unable to project power beyond the Caribbean until WW2
>The Royal Navy, not the US, controlled the seas during the 19th and early 20th century
>In practice it was the British who enforced the Monroe Doctrine when it suited them
>Latin American States had to fend off for themselves against European invasions numerous times (French intervention in Mexico, British seizure of Belice or the Falklands, Anglo-French blockade of Argentina, British Guayana-Venezuela dispute, etc)
Education is a system of imposed ignorance.
The mass media serve as a system for communicating messages and symbols to the general populace. It is their function to amuse, entertain, and inform, and to inculcate individuals with the values, beliefs, and codes of behavior that will integrate them into the institutional structures of the larger society. In a world of concentrated wealth and major conflicts of class interest, to fulfil this role requires systematic propaganda.
The beauty of the system, however, is that such dissent and inconvenient information are kept within bounds and at the margins, so that while their presence shows that the system is not monolithic, they are not large enough to interfere unduly with the domination of the official agenda.
Noam Chomsky, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
The Monroe Doctrine was a statement of intent, not an ironclad policy. Yes there were numerous 'breaches' of the Doctrine that America was either or both unable or unwilling to address, but that doesn't make the Monroe Doctrine worthless. It clarified America's foreign policy position.
Non-Colonization by European powers on the free parts of the American Continent.
The Non-Interference principle that America sought not to interfere in European Affairs, but by the same token would interpret attempts by Europeans to interfere in the free and independent parts of the American Continent as 'dangerous to our peace and safety'.
Which isn't the same as saying "We will stop every attempt to do so" or even saying that America could. But that doesn't mean it was entirely a barren gesture it was the platform from which the American state department would operate.
Why do people say Finland is Scandinavian when clearly it's Baltic?
There's genetic continuity between Finns and Balts though, Germanic influence on the Finnish gene pool is minimal. Also historically and geopolitically Finland and Baltics have a lot more in common with each other.
