Have you seen the (abject lack of) quality of the historical discussion on this board?

Also nice meta-thread faggot.
>>
>>300526
Only reason it lacks quality is because the humanities side keeps wanting to circlejerk in those threads.

without them it would be more about historical facts and events rather than "Was eugenics a good thing?"

Yeah, what a shame to have a board with armchair philosophers instead of armchair historians with their inane opinions and misquotes.

No one has ever said this. A history board has been wanted for many many years now though. Humanities are fucking shit for the most part, especially muh postmodern shit. Fucking

and other threads like that are cancer. Fucking hippie shit.

>>300653
>Board would be literally dead with just history or humanities
Gee I wonder who would benefit by saying this. A humanities board would be dead sure. But not a history board. Just like in real life, humanities fags need everyone else, but no one needs them and their trite bullshit. Just like no one needs fucking sociology for their STEM degree, but sociology needs that gen-ed tuition money, /his/ does not need humanities bullshit. Fuck off.
>>

Are you kidding me? /lit/ was like 30% purely philosophical discussions before /his/. Threads about Plato, Marx and Stirner constantly on the first page.

>>
>>300778
I never said that it didn't have a use, I said they need everyone else, not the other way around. I happen to like the philosophical outlook of the Greeks myself, but the bottom line is philosophers and humanities fags in academia need everyone else to survive because they don't bring any employable or productive skills to the table. When your field only serves to make more professors to teach people to be professors, you have this almost incestuous incentive to make yourself more important than you really are. Unlike other studies where they actually produce something concrete to society.

>>300780
You don't need philosophy professors in ivory towers to question the world around you. Or should I say tell you how to feel about the world for you. You greatly overestimate how important you are and only have ad hominem left.

>>300816

Bust seriously guys, why propagate a petulant, petty, autistic us versus them back and forth with a cancerous meta thread when the real enemy to proper discourse are /pol/ and /int/-tier children who meme relentlessly and run their mouths with a scant and largely incorrect base of knopwledge?
>>
>>300829
Ah the guy who thinks questioning the morality of industrialized farming is 'hippie shit' is trying to tell me I don't have an argument. Don't make laugh faggot
>>
>>300881
Because in my experience discussions started from memeing and a "scant and largely incorrect base of knopwledge" have a fairly good change to progress into actually good discussions, since knowledgeable people are baited in to correct the mistakes and debate ensues. When I see threads like "Is god real? #112233" or "eating meat is evil #998877" I want to leave the board tho.
>>
>>300860
Yeah actually they don't, but see >>300693. What I'm trying to say is, how in general they're leeches now in the context of 4chan compared to real life. The big difference is that for history everyone has wanted a /his/ board for a long time, so you can't count them in the same boat in this instance. But the humanities in general still persist with the leeching even among itself.

>>300881
No, shut the fuck up. Anons whining about /pol/ are at least ten times as annoying as /pol/ itself. They're free to be wrong because anons and the topic will correct them if they're wrong. Whining about /pol/ brings nothing of value to the board. Oh wait just like the humanities faggots on /his/.

Being "cartoon villains" or not isn't a matter of historical accuracy. You're not interested in historical data, just in flaunting your special opinion.

>>300933
>Being "cartoon villains" or not isn't a matter of historical accuracy
Yes it is moron. Their or any group's actions in context is important to examining history. Immediately writing shit off as a cartoon villain is the farthest you can be from wanting to examine historical data because you already made your decision.

As opposed to "Herman Rosenblat's story is true because he was there and couldn't possibly lie" being the right way to do shit? Examining things in context isn't taking a side.

Not that guy but

>IQ is largely inherited, of course it is.

While IQ is largely inherited, egenics literally cause inbreeding by erasing alleles from the genepool. You're pretty much gravitating towards a single phenotype thus reducing the genetic diversity. Look at what happened to dog breeds.

And second, is raising IQ all across the board so important we literally need to regulate breeding? That shit is pretty exploitable by a corrupt government.
>>
>>300511
Yes, yes I do.
>>
>>300981
>Examining things in context isn't taking a side.
Which is exactly why you don't have to go around telling everyone how they are morally wrong to study any of this.

>>300982
I'm not surprised a Vegan likes getting pegged. They probably don't even have the energy to get a rise let alone thrust their dick into anything.

Nigger, have some dignity. When you've absolutely nothing left to say, just show yourself out.

Haha fuck you faggot like I'm here to cater to your interests
>>
>>300986
You're not really straw manning, so much as saying what my opinion is before I give it. There are lots of options for eugenics that wouldn't result in inbreeding. Dog breeds are fucked up because we bred siblings.

I think we should have a positive eugenics program to replace declining birth rates. Just make test tube babies from really smart people and stick them with families for some sort of tax deduction, have them breed in with the rest of the population

Because people don't like to see ad hominems (redditnigger) without argumentations outside of /pol/.

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but couldn't you just ignore the /hum/ threads you so irrationally hate?

I personally love that we now have a board where things can be analyzed from a humanistic perspective, rather than the /pol/ narrative.

No because they interject and whine about /pol/ all the time instead of discussing history.

But he needs to link threads. The green text was an argumentation, you simply failed to understand it.
>>
>>301126
>But he needs to link threads.
Does he tho. Do you ask for sources when someone states that ww2 happened? The guy used the two most common repeat threads on the board as examples.
>>
>>301095
>>301126
I wanted to add, it's sort of like when people complain about post modernism being overly complicated pseudo intellectualism. A lot of it is, but If you don't know the lingo for talking about it you just look dumb.
>>
>>301137
>>301145
The fact that he failed to link threads is evidence that he doesn't understand how 4chan works. Maybe he's here every day idfk.

Bro you link threads because you link threads. Not linking a thread on 4channels and talking about how you live here is like critiquing post modernism and not knowing what an ultimate signifier is.

He literally typed the first three and last three digits you retard.
>>
>>301256
So... What you're saying is that he's a newfag.
>>
>>301267
No I'm saying he most likely wanted to say he doesn't want to see the 112233rd edition of the god thread or the 998877th edition of the meat thread.
Whereas you think he wanted to say he doesn't want to see thread No.112233: is god real and thread No.998877: eating meat is ebul.
Given the kind of numbers he used, it's pretty obvious which way he meant it.
>>
>>301256
I'm going to break this down with cold hard logic and reasoning. Here are about three options off the top of my head.

>He couldn't find a thread to link to
What he's complaining about is not actually a problem.

>He found the threads but didn't link
He's a new fag

>He doesn't know how to link
He's a new fag

>He didn't already have the threads open
He's a new fag

>You're a faggot
Case closed
>>
>>301288
No, he put a # in front of it, you don't understand. This is like critiquing post modernism and not knowing what an ultimate signifier is.

See >>301307
>>
>>301316
You do realize that putting # in front of a number has an actual meaning beyond thread linking right?
>>
>>301352
You do realize this is 4chan and on 4chan a # has a very specific meaning. Using it inappropriately is telling. Like I have said, it's like critiquing post modernism and not knowing what an ultimate signifier is. He has done a thing which shows he's not familiar with the lexicon

Religion has took over /his/, to be honest.
Most of the threads are about Christianity.

But I agree: /his/ should be about history, not philosophy or religion.
We need a /rel/ and a /phi/ for that, as containment boards.
