Board: /his/

"/his/ - History & Humanities" is 4chan's board for discussing and debating history.

Welcome to /his/ - History & Humanities
Herodotus
This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

Were medieval times really like Game of Thrones?
bolton
How close is it to the real middle ages? Could you really just go absolute bollocks like Ramsey Bolton terrorize your whole population with no consequences and what medieval dukes and kings came the closest to ruling their domains like cartoon villains and what happened to them?

I'm asking this question because people see GOT like some pseudo documentary how medieval times really were and I want to know the truth.

>Respect the Sabbath and keep it holy.
Why do Christians use Sunday as their Sabbath and not Saturday, as God commanded? I know the rearsoning behind it (Jesus rose on Sunday) but shouldn't God's own word trump what the Church decides? AFAIK Christ Himself doesn't say to shift the Sabbath.

Wtf was he thinking with the Casablanca conference.
Hitler knew he’d have to seek peace at possibly great personal cost if he didn’t secure the oilfields of maikop and grozny, not to mention the blunder at stalingrad. Roosevelt prolonged the war by years, there’s no way that Hitler would capitulate to an unconditional surrender if Germany wasn’t wiped off the face of the earth, owing to the whole stab in the back thing and the fact that the man himself just didn’t ever capitulate.
Furthermore if Roosevelt knew that Hitler would fight to the destruction of Germany, why risk handing over Europe to Stalin, who would also be the only power able to project power on the continent.

Should Christians in their generosity be like Andrew Carnegie who built over 1700 libraries instead of individuals who throw cash at problems in hopes that they go away or feel good about donating?

If I were Bill gates I would use my wealth to build replacement animal shelters, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters that use a standardized design to build as many possible.

The way I see it is that with proper maintenance these buildings would last generations. I like that idea over throwing food stamps at single mothers as they'll require another batch of stamps in a month.

I wouldn't mind the 4 trillion dollars that would be used on entitlements on the federal level in 2022 if the money went to long lasting structures that act as a resource to communities instead.

Military fort bases should house tiny home communities for vets who're homeless & have missing limbs such as both legs blown off.

Is this the most pathetic "empire" in history
Map+of+the+Byzantine+Empire+1350+AD
>Of that Byzantine empire the universal verdict of history is that it constitutes, without a single exception, the most thoroughly base and despicable form that civilization has yet assumed. Though very cruel and very sensual, there have been times when cruelty assumed more ruthless, and sensuality more extravagant aspects, but there has been no other enduring civilization so absolutely destitute of all the forms and elements of greatness, and none to which the epithet mean may be so emphatically applied. They possessed knowledge; they had continually before them the noble literature of ancient Greece, instinct with the loftiest heroism; but that literature, which afterward did so much to revivify Europe, could fire the degenerate Greeks with no spark or semblance of nobility.
>There is another history even more ridiculous: that is Byzantine history. This unworthy collection contains only declamations and miracles: it is the disgrace of the human mind, just as the Greek empire was the reproach of the earth.
>The history of the Greek empire [...] is nothing but a tissue of revolts, seditions, and perfidies.
>Let us not follow the example of the Byzantine Empire, which, being pressed from all sides by the barbarians, became the laughing-stock of posterity because it was preoccupied with petty quarrels while the battering-ram was breaking through the city gates.
Byzashits could not have underperformed that supposedly great graeco-roman heritage any harder. Even iranian sissies nearly got them 1 vs 1. In comparison 1000 years before a few city states not only held them off but a bit later counter conqured them. Looks like the only reason that happened is because they were still fairly close to their indo european nordic aryan origins, an heritage that apparently would be lost through med and slav mutting.

Why do Christians think this is okay? When God demanded sacrifices, he demanded the very best of the Hebrew's cattle. When God demanded an Ark be built, he demanded it was built of solid gold and was ornately detailed. When God demanded a temple be built, he demanded it be built with the finest gold and incense to fill it with. When Jesus had his feet washed, it was with the finest of perfumes available. Yet Christians have the gall to build this pathetic thing and think God will be okay with it?

castle_main
If you had a castle built near the sea what would prevent you from fishing to make the siege last longer. The only issues I would see is not having people who know how to fish which could be fix with training your soldiers or not being able to fish enough so that you can maintain the castle which is probably true but it would at least make the siege last longer no? I couldn't see a practical way of preventing a castle from fishing.

Why were so many of the American Founders and later on Northerners so butthurt about The Norman Conquest? They keep referring to William as some "Tyrant" when he won England fair and square.

They (Saxons like Jefferson and Locke) then endlessly cry about conquest being an illegitimate form of authority but then Saxons turn around on this with both the victories of the American Revolution and North's victory over the South in the American Civil War.

It seems like they want all the glory of being a conqueror without actually being acknowledged as one, and the responsibility this brings.

This pattern is also seen in how WASPs want all the superiority status of the Norman/Cavalier South which implies a kind of racism, but then they label the latter as being "racist" and being beneath them. So which is it? You cant have your egalitarian idealism and think yourself "superior" to any group.

Its this kind of twofaced feminine behavior that reminds me of the chosen people and their hypocritical double standards.

The Civil War was always about Anglo Saxon Puritan culture getting revenge on Norman/Cavalier culture for hastings, which is fine, but dont pretend that doing so doesn't also destroy all the "liberal bullshit" men like Thomas Jefferson and John Locke wrote used to complain about the initial conquest.

Was Khrushchev's character assassination of Stalin in 1956 an early example of cancel culture? He essentially made Stalin persona non grata, in very similar fashion to how a woketard today would cancel some old historical figure or writer for being "problematic" and banish him from public memory. Was Khrushchev the first true woketard communist?

Why would anyone be Protestant? Catholicism is literally so much more kino, you have all the saints praying for you, you have mother Mary, you have Jesus, you have the beautiful churches and hymns, same with Orthodoxy. And your church is literally the original apostolic church. Protestantism is literally dead and soulless and most Protestants don't actually believe in God or even the Trinity, they just do it as a cultural practice.

Evidence for God
god
I see too many retarded atheists talking about the fact that there is no evidence for a God existing, so let me post some of them.

1. As far as we know it, something can't come out of nothing, and since most scientists agree that space and time had a beginning with the Big Bang, this leave the possibility of an abstract being like a God creating the universe out of nothing.
2. Godel's ontological proof makes it so that a God will necessarily exist.
3. Some of the best works of art of the human race were made inspired by God.
4. Despite the fact that life can start out of non life, we never seen this happening yet, which leaves the possibility that only a God can make life happen out of nothing.

One of the key differences between Traditional Christianity (Catholicism, Orthodoxy, heck even Confessional Lutheranism and the like) and Evangelicalism is that Traditional Christianity has never been afraid of the true horror and tragedy that is living while Evangelical Christianity is basically just reactionary in nature, it has no true sense of the world or human nature, no understanding of what it even means to be a part of God's creation, no real knowledge of the divine or the sacred, and this is why it has produced the worst and most embarrassing and most intolerable strains of "religion" that is the Charismatic movement and its even worse subgroups like the Prosperity Gospel! The Charismatic movement is truly the worst offspring of the Evangelical movement, this may be uncharitable to say but face it, it's full of dimwits who have no real understanding of what actual religion is, who have never really contemplated the sacred, all they want is a feel good dopamine shot in their "worship". It makes sense that it's mostly an American religion, because it literally is America if it was a religion, especially the Prosperity Gospel bull crap which is Capitalism as a religion. Traditional Christianity is actually quite gothic in nature, it's contemplative, it allows for real spiritual fulfilment, it actually evokes the feeling of the divine and the feeling of sacredness and the ancient, it teaches us how to face the suffering and horrors that is life and gives those who believe in it true hope for the world to come, it is truly the religion of the God-Man who suffered on the cross, who was humiliated on the cross, who was completely beaten and broken in every way by the world, it is the religion of the God-Man feeling abandoned by God himself... and yet with it comes the hope and joy that is the resurrection. Evangelicalism is just modern sophistry, a complete facade, an absolute joke!

We know moustache man didn't trust the nazis and only made Molotov-Ribbentrop a thing in order to gain more territory to hold on the eventual invasion after UK and France didn't agree with a preventive attack. However, why did he go on with his plan to industrialize for the inevitable conflict, also through business with Germany itself, instead of joining the west's blockade to Nazi Germany? He basically gave them prime resources that they would employ to attack him eventually (even though he didn't know when exactly)

I will never forgive the british for leaving India. India would have been better off under british rule. All they could have had to do was make it easy for educated people to move from india to britain that would have been good enough. No need to end colonialism.
Why did they end colonialism? What kind of bastards are the british?
I'm from India but I also have a feeling India would have done slightly better under the british.

Kabbalah is the truest form of Judaism.
Traditional Catholicism or Orthodox Hesychasm is the truest form of Christianity.
Sufism or Shiite Esotericism is the truest form of Islam.
I'm sorry but you're practicing a watered down version of these religions if you don't integrate yourself into their fullest expressions of their spirituality. Just sayin'.

As the Cold War set in after World War II, the most devastating impact of U.S. interference in Haiti was the government's ongoing support of the Duvalier regime, which ruled Haiti from 1957 to 1986. Fearful that Haiti would fall to communism, the U.S. government concluded that it would offer full support to the Duvalier government.

During that 30-year period, Haitians were forced to live under dictators "Papa Doc" and "Baby Doc" Duvalier, a father and son team, who openly murdered their opponents and stole millions of dollars from the Haitian people. Some members of the Haitian leadership have since claimed that the Duvaliers stole close to $1 billion. Even so, both Duvaliers enjoyed the backing of the United States because of their staunch "anti-communism" and the economic opportunities that Haiti offered American business.

The kleptocratic Duvalier regime began in 1956, when François "Papa Doc" Duvalier seized power in a military coup d'état. Within a decade, Papa Doc declared himself "president for life" and imposed a brutal dictatorship.

What made Japan so easily forgive the US? As an American I really don't understand this. I'm well aware that since we occupied their country we would've had the power to control their narrative, yet even so, all post-war surveys show that most japanese people hold a favorable view of the United States, despite us dropping 2 nuclear bombs on them.

Other countries bombed by mine don't usually hold near as favorable opinions. What made Japan become so subservient to the west so quickly?

Was life under the Japanese Empire genuinely terrible compared to post-1945, or it was it clever propaganda?
