Most of a Master's degree program in a liberal arts field is buddy system bullshit.

Academics, and I say this as nonpolitically as I can, are some of the most conniving, backstabbing people out there.

As far as why he's a teacher, I'm assuming you go to an American public school, so you're lucky he isn't a community college drop out with a degree in "general education" and a teaching certification.

I was very good in history class and got very good marks so people used to believe what I said about things.

Wasn't this true, though? I've heard that Caligula did that to demean the Senators, saying even his horse was more capable.

Majority of the sources I've read it was always quoted as "It has been said that..." which already makes it shady as fuck. Also Seutonius wrote about Caligula about 50 years after Caligula's death, so that makes it basically even less believable. Hell, even Seutonius himself wrote "It is also said".

My world history 1 professor was taught by a woman who had just gotten her Doctorate a few months prior. Someone asked her if Canada fought in WW2 and she said word for word "I dont think Canada fought in the war. I think they were neutral". The entire class went silent.

In fairness it's sort of up in the air.

If you start from the Japanese invasion of China, then it began in 1937. But most people don't because that was a local conflict that just got folded into the larger war.

Germany invaded Poland in 1939. However the War was strictly limited to Europe at that point, and Eastern Europe at that, unless you count the Battle of the Atlantic. Which you probably should.

The Soviets had their Winter War in 1939-40 and some skirmishes with the Japanese in 1939, but not really a "war".

The Italians didn't declare war until 1940, after the Germans invaded France, which is when the war actually took on a "world" aspect as it kicked things off in Africa.

Japan attacking America in 1941 made the war truly a "world" war since that's when the Pacific theater opened up with Japanese attacks on America, British, Dutch, and other targets.

1939-1945 is generally your safest bet (and it's personally what I use), but if you're not including the Sino-Japanese War's start in 1937 then a case can be made that you shouldn't include the general German-Allied stuff either since it's all "local" prior to Italy getting involved in 1940.

I can't remember my history teachers being deliberately wrong, but the best of them had such great quirks.

First was my teacher while I was 13-16, and he did his job fairy well. But every now and then he'd slip up.
>He loved beer history.
>Beer history.
>Working with 13-16 year old kids.
I had a great chat about it on the bus with him once, outside of the kiddie classroom, and there was such passion in that barrel of a man.

My current one looks like an actual bitter teddy bear. He starts every single lesson with complaining about something at the school. His quirks are not as out of place as beer history among fresh teens, but fairly entertaining.
>Jazz-music
>His own ancestry
>Trains
>So many trains

He tells us many times about various voyages to visit historically relevant trains. Like, private cars of Hitler and so on.

But I'd guess there's that one teacher... We only had her for a year, in social studies, but she openly praised the communistic stuff in eastern Berlin post war.

>Many were very sad when the wall was torn down.

Nope, that was a photo taken pre-launch

They made 2 prototypes. One of them was tested by launching out of the atmosphere and landing it, and the other one was never finished. The one that was actually launched got sadly crushed into rubble by a warehouse fire in 2002 (before you whine about dates the actual craft was made in '84)

Interestingly enough it was launched completely unmanned and remains the only shuttle to ever complete a launch and landing automatically, as well as the only spacecraft to ever have been designed exclusively as a platform for nuclear weapons, with no scientific applications even considered.

They might have. The two were certainly aware of each other's existence (the Chinese referred to the Roman Empire as "Da Qin" or "Great Qin"), and we know for a fact that Roman traders got as far as Malaysia, and Han traders as far as Mesopotamia.

There were probably never any Romans in Han China itself (the Chinese records say that there was one envoy but it's unclear if the Chinese were talking about an actual envoy from Rome or just someone from that general area) but it's quite probable that their merchants actually interacted directly at at least a few points.

This is reductive, but it's not outright wrong.

The treaty was designed to be punitive and heap indemnity onto the new German republic in a way that would ostensibly make it impossible for them to ever wage another war. These provisions were influenced by the cries of the war-weary citizens who sought to press whatever advantages over the vanquished as they could find support for (which happened to be a lot).

Traders. Folk trading stuff. Roman gold coins have been found in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam (near modern Hanoi), which wouldn't be there unless there were Romans there buying stuff directly (since if it was Indian or Persian or whatever intermediaries they'd be using their own coins).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Roman_relations#Trade_relations

I'm not saying it was a flourishing and vibrant trade with thousands of people every year making the trip; just that on occasion some folk from the Roman Empire met some folk from the Chinese Empire. There was probably at least one debate between them about who's empire would kick who's ass.

>Don't even mention that they basically kept Austria independent for four more years while all the Socialists wanted the Anschluss
>Karl Lueger was a filthy antisemite
>Karl Renner was a glorious president and totally not an anti-semite who wanted to join Germany
>WWII is only the holocaust, the actual course of the war never is properly looked at until we ask for it
>Kurt Waldheim was an evil man for knowing about the war crimes the Germans conducted

He also gave us handouts from a veeeery left-leaning newspaper to the point some people in the class including me flat out refused to read these and his attempts to influence us before elections (history and political education are one subject in Austria) was so blatant he received multiple complaints about it.

Despite all this I liked him. When he didn't mix education and spreading his ideology up he was entertaining, informative and intelligent. It is a good thing we had a lot of politically interested people in our class (mostly boys) who called him out on bullshitting. If he didn't stop, we became /pol/ tier politically incorrect.

He also was our German teacher, where we called him out on any typo he made, asking things like "And you teach German?"

Coins traveled a lot in a general near area, but. they didn't tend to cross thousands of miles of ocean unless someone was bringing them en masse from where they were minted to where they were going. We also know of a maritime trade route to Chinese-controlled Jiaozhi and the Khmer kingdom of Funan, connected to Nabatean and Egyptian ports in the Red Sea, by the 2nd century, if not earlier.

>Roman gold coins have been found in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam (near modern Hanoi), which wouldn't be there unless there were Romans there buying stuff directly

No, it was a case of Roman trader paying say, an Arab trader with Roman coins, who then pays an Indian trader with the same coins, who then pays a Vietnamese trader with those same coins.

Now it's not impossible that a Roman trader could have made it all the way to Vietnam but that's just not how trade worked back in Oldy Timey days, it was; trade item > trader > another trader > to another trader > etc.

Except that the Chinese have records of Roman traders, merchants, explorers, and adventurers, as well as their own likewise. Gan Ying reached Mesopotamia. Maës Titianus reached either Tashkurgan or Kashgar, both of which were under Han Chinese control at the time (and continue to be so today). The Chinese record that either Emperor Antoninus Pius or his successor, Marcus Aurelius, sent an embassy to China that reached it in 166 (Pius died in 161 and Aurelius reigned under the name Antoninus so there's a bit of confusion as to which). The Romans came up from the South, which means a probable sea journey. The Chinese recount further missions being sent to Cao Rui in the Kingdom of Wei (probably during the reign of Severus Alexander), and another in the year 284 by the Emperor Carus.

My ultimate point being, returning to the start of this:

I'm not suggesting the Romans and Chinese didn't have contact, just addressing some anon's statement that;

"Roman coins wouldn't be there unless there were Romans there buying stuff directly."

It's FAR more likely that the coins made their way to the Mekong Delta thru the hands of one trader to another, as that's how most traders operated, considering it took months and months to go from Point A to Point B and odds are slim to none that a Roman trader would even be able to converse with a Vietnamese trader in the first place.

The Italians managed it a thousand years later: we know for a fact that there were Venetian and Portuguese trading colonies in China in the 1300s. Sure, the extra thousand years of naval development had shrunk the distances somewhat, but it was still a journey of several years to get from Venice to China.

Besides, you can actually pick up the basics of a language, at least for basic trading purposes, in as little as just a few months if you're surrounded by speakers of it.

They might have also used a mutual lingua franca, like Sanskrit.

"Somewhat"? Naval tech had advanced by leaps and bounds from the Roman Era to the Late Middle Ages, driven by the need for Europeans to by-pass the Muslims in the MidEast, who were jacking up prices on spices, silk and other Eastern goods, as the overland trade routes across Asia had been fucked by the Mongols.

Did Romans and Chinese on occasion make it all the way from Rome to Beijing or visa versa? Yes.

Was _regular trade_ happening directly from Rome to Beijing and visa versa? No.

The Church's issue wasn't really with the actual traders, as they did put in effort and take risks to get their profit.

The problem was with the usury (via Jews at the time) that came with ever expanding trade, which is absolutely a case of profiting while doing nothing to earn that profit.

And the Church was proven right when the Protestant Reformation came about, as this had little to do with religious issues (at least among the elite) and was in fact mostly about Christians cooking-up reasons for taking over the usury business from the Jews.

I had a 30 minute argument with my history teacher about the Holy Roman Empire.
More or less, it stemmed from her saying "This took place in this city (munster?), but I don't remember the country." And I just said "Probably in the Holy Roman Empire, somewhere."
She went all autistic, taking about how it's medieval history and Rome fell in 500~ A.D. (I don't remember if she got the date right or just said "in the 500's), I started talking about Charlemagne to try to establish what I was talking about, but she either didn't seem to know about him or didn't seem to care. She got autistically stuck thinking Roman meant the empire, 3 people from A.P. who where in there for a study hall sided with her (I wasn't in A.P. because I hated the teacher), saying the Holy Roman Empire refereed to Constantine's Rome.

> Well the protestant reform was motivated by the Church being corrupt as fuck though

Which the European nobility had no real issues with, as it was their 2nd and 3rd sons who made up the hierarchy of the Church.

The fundamental problem at the time was the Catholic Church's unreasonable ban on usury, which greatly restrained trade and business and funneled profits into the Jewish money lender's hands, but the Protestants answer (adopting the Jewish practice of unrestrained usury) lead directly to the modern Global Corporate Nobility that rules the world today.

One of the few good things about Islam (in addition to keeping their bitches under control) is their religious "work-around" for dealing with the real world necessity of charging interest on monetary loans.

By the tenants of Islam, Muslim lenders are supposed to also accept the _risk_ on loans they make, taking the fall with the borrower and losing their money if the business fails, as opposed to getting their profit no matter Hell or high water, as with Protestant and Jewish lending practices.

If the Catholic Church had adopted Islam's concept of "profit sharing" instead of flat-out banning usury, there would have been no Protestant Reformation and the world today would be a much better place.

I had an 8th grade history teacher who did something similar with the Revolution.

He split the class into Patriots, Loyalists, and Undecided. He gave out debate topics each day and the next day each group had to come prepared to debate that shit.

All of the history buffs and nerds volunteered for the loyalists (including myself) and all the Dudebros and popular kids went to the Patriots. The fucking loyalist side came prepared and ready every day and we reamed the Patriots so hard in the debates that eventually everyone in the Unaffiliated joined our side, and we ended up "winning" the revolution.

We also had a Civil War week and as a kid I had a massive boner for the Civil War, so when we got to "reenact" a field hospital (using random bits of gauze, ketchup, and Sprite for whiskey), I came dressed up in a full Union getup and acted that shit out like I was going for an Oscar.

8th Grade was THE best year I tell ya what.

A gem of mine was when I had to carry a project for my fellow peers, and this one group did the German Annexation of France. They said it was an allied victory, took place in '57, and used the BoB pictures for some of it as a slide show. I laughed when they presented.

Call it tradition, call it using already existing dislike. Jews never had much in the way of sympathy in Europe.

I promptly dropped out of the course and got lucky to be added in a not filled class by a hardcore conservative fucker that had a low score on ratemyprofessor. The only reason he had a low score is because his class was basically a seminar with us discussing the problems we had understanding the readings, that and he was a complete dick to ignorant plebs, so yeah it was fun. Still that other class, I hope none of those people in my first class ever become Historians or go into STEM.

Jews have been blamed for pretty much everything throughout history.
In Europe they were mostly moneylenders/bankers, so when an economy went bad, Jews were blamed.

Germany also had a bit of a civil war after WW1, with one side being communists who wanted to turn Germany into a socialist republic similar to the USSR. There were a lot of Jews involved with that group, so it was really easy to catalyze the people against them because of that.
>>
>>66627
a lot of the time they're wrong on purpose. like, they'll teach the out of africa theory as though it's a fact. remember that they had to go through liberal indoctrination factory to get their degrees.

i had a high school history teacher who spent a year teaching "world history," but only covered china. he said history was too "euro-centric," and he wanted to give us a different perspective.

it was pretty interesting, honestly, but i would have been better served by learning european history, or actually surveying history more broadly from around the world.

I have a long list.Had a teacher who was acupuncturist years ago. Nothing against it, but, damn, he committed painful mistakes. I still remember when we saw the conquest of Ceuta, he managed to put elephants in the middle (do not ask me how). I do not remember most of it, indeed.

Then I went to university. Study law. To my absolute horror, a teacher in the field of public international law, at each lesson, slaughtered historiography. In this case, I made a list.

>She added four US states and make the Texas to remain independent until the Civil War. Added more one Republic to the USSR. And Nasser was killed, she said. At the behest of the Arab states. That Norway and Sweden are still under a Real Union. I learned that the British Empire had viceroys, not governors-general. And that Jamaica still is a crown colony. That India is under diplomatic protection of the UK. That Hindus and Muslims have clashes since 5000 years. Oh, and that all Muslims of India immigrated to Pakistan.

So were the notes half of a class. A half.

I found out this week that she will be in banking examination of my course conclusion thesis. Hell.

Maybe its because they like to make goyim their slaves through usury and constantly work to undermine Christian morality in every society they inhabit

Maybe its because the Jewish spirit is revolutionary and they literally destroy the society they occupy and refuse to assimilate

Jews never really integrated with western society as a whole, not until very recently at least, and even now there's still a love of isolated Jewish communities.

When a country has a minority group that doesn't integrate and just kind of isolates themselves into their own little communities, it's really easy for everyone else to be suspicious of them.
>>
>>82170
i've got jews in my family, and worked very closely with some jews. the individuals themselves generally aren't the problem.

the problem is the values they promote. take the poem "the new colossus," for instance. authored by emma lazarus, known jew, it is inscribed on the plinth of the statue of liberty.

but it promotes taking the refuse of other nations, which is obviously suicidal. what we should take are the best immigrants. don't give me your tired, or your poor. give me your ambitious, and your wealthy. importing doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs makes a nation healthy. importing bodies just to put on welfare makes a nation weak.
>>
>>82082
Weren't they hated for using unjust banking methods banned by kings?
For roman times they were hated for refusing to become christian
In more recent history I think they were hated simply for not being of their country's nationality, preferring to consider fellow jews their friends and promoting them by hardcore nepotism

I've always interpreted it as to mean the ones who could be great, but weren't permitted to in their homes, kept down by old structures and oppressive governments.

The requirements of those times were different as well. Automation has increasinly now replaced simple manual labor, but back then, there was still a sufficient demand for more workers.
>>
>>82283
In Russia jews had a monopoly on the vodka industry.

They would get the peasants liquored up around harvest time and then charge them compounding interest. Then take everything they could through usury.

Russia government tried to stop this by forcing the jews to become farmers but that failed miserably because the jews can't into manual (goy) labor.

Ultimately, the czarist government turned it into a state controlled monopoly and a lot of jews just left for America.

Jews make their bones by stealing off of what regular people make. Which is why they got pogrommed all the fucking time.

Also for having a huge part in the death of Alex II and Communism.

They had a few issues with Rome.
A notable one was pretty damning.
Greeks were allowed to openly practice their religion on the streets of Jerusalem and the Jews living there found it intolerable, and they eventually decided the best course of action was to just kill all the Greeks.

It didn't go well for them.

it's just an example. maybe not even the best one. another example would be communism, since marx was jewish and his jewish values formed his political philosophy.

There is no a person living in America that has not personally benefited from the loaning industry of banks. Borrowing money is a core aspect of literally every single business. A well run business will always have a loan out, trying to borrow the maximum amount of money possible. Because a well run bussiness will always gain returns faster than it generates interest on the dept.

In other words if you have ever used any product or service from a bussiness (hint: roads) you have been personally helped by a Jewish banker. But no one wants to admit that the Jews have done more for them than Jesus Christ....that would throw away the entire fantasy!
