>wanted to shape China into a stronk authoritarian-capitalist-nationalist state, but didn’t really have the tactical or political know-how >loses and gets booted onto an island by communists >communists eventually realize that their ideology wasn’t so hot and decide to turn China into a stronk authoritarian-capitalist-nationalist state that Chiang would love and mao would fucking hate Poetic
>>11967214 >How could someone actually prove that Mao would literally hate modern China?
You could at least try, so far you’ve posted one meaningless screenshot.
>It's a fact that Deng and Xi Jinping have radically changed the economy of China away from Mao's original vision.
The claim in the OP said that they changed the state, not the economy. Backpedaling already lmao
Also pay attention to the term "Renegade".
They called Bill Krystol a renegade as well. Bill is a Communist Jew.
"renegade" is a throw back to a qoute by Karal Marx, the OG communist Jew.
AOC called herself a Jew, and they're calling AOC a renegade.
yeah that’s just not true, the ccp owns stakes in every big company and the owners live in permanent fear of getting disappeared, it’s nothing like america
>be Changs >looked down upon everyone >called them barbarians >didn't know the Earth has spherical shape until Europeans teached them
>be whities >looked down upon everyone >called them barbarian >didn't now neolithic agriculture technology until near easterners taught it to them >didn't know civilization until near easterners invented it and taught it to them
>>11967198 >>didn't know the Earth has spherical shape
That's because they knew the earth is flat
>>11967219 >ancient near easterners =/= modern near easterners
Whites teaching other whites to farm lol, also nordics in the Baltic areas adopted agriculture without near eastern input

Should mega churches be taxed? I don't like the idea of these mega churches moving into an area & basically ripping apart communities with their trendy establishment.
A church should be allowed to proselytize and even spend money on “non-charitable” things such as buying microphones or doing renovations on the church. A church should not be used as a method to profiteer for a preacher.
You say communism is a meme but Ancap ideology is the biggest meme ideology ever has it has never had a serious movement come out of it and only seems to exist online. Ancaps calling other ideologies "memes" is pretty stupid as you other Ancap compatriot is proving very effectively.

Yes, just like a regular non-profit, which is also tax exempt if you pass an audit by not being totally and blatantly corrupt.
Some say that Christian Rome wasn’t a continuation of the original Rome. I can see myself agreeing. But why is it so unpopular to argue that modern atheist France isn’t a continuation of France that first began with Clovis I? If I say something like this people get upset for some reason, but I honestly think modern France has very little (if any) continuation with France of the past.
England today has nothing to do with England from 800 years ago. You're retarded. Both are the same country, they simply evolved. Nor is France atheist, its a secular country.
I think the same about England. 19th century England was the last true continuation of Alfred’s England (even if Protestant). 20th century and after are a break and a completely new beginning.
There is no Alfreds England. There's simply pre and industrial england.
How much of an impact would the potato crop be if the Romans were introduced to it?
The Western Roman empire might not have collapsed.
The collapse of the WRE was triggered by a cooling period that ended the Roman warm period (which is what allowed Rome to rise in the first place even though later they were still heavily dependent on North African provinces for food)
A similar cooling period, known today as the little ice age occurred at the same time potatoes were introduced to Europe. The potato was one of the reasons European civilization did not collapse again and if the potato had been present during the Roman period they might have been able to stave off collapse as well.
Carbohydrate diversification might have rendered "bread and circus" population-control less efficacious.
You probably could introduce things like potato chips & fries. Garum flavored chips anyone?
How difficult would it had been to introduce food preservation technology?
Would beans had helped? Beans were stigmatized but I'm sure that with the right recipes you could change minds.
I'm sure fish and chips would be a big hit at the gladiatorial games. You could use literal slaves to make fast food.
>>11967070 >Garum flavored chips
This is an idea everyone needs to pursue asap. Maybe there's an asian supermarket equivalent to satiate me for now.

This, if they issued them as rations to the Legions they'd be unbeatable.
Here's an example of how they saved a bunch of lives in ww2:
Redpill me on why God of Israel hates sorcerers and wants them killed.
Doesn't he know it's all a larp? It's not like they have actual powers..
He's right tho.
It’s literally on you, not me Christ Myther.
I've lived to see atheists literally deny that Jesus existed, shows how much faith based their religion is, kek.
>>11967222 >>11967224 >>11967233
Proof? I know what you're going to post already but the fact that you don't even bother anymore is funny. Must be tiring too get destroyed thread after thread I guess.
I am asking you for proof.
> In modern scholarship, the Christ myth theory is a fringe theory, which finds virtually no support from scholars, to the point of being addressed in footnotes or almost completely ignored due to the obvious weaknesses they espouse. Common criticisms against the Christ myth theory include: general lack of expertise or relationship to academic institutions and current scholarship; reliance on arguments from silence, dismissal of what sources actually state, and superficial comparisons with mythologies. >According to agnostic scholar Bart D. Ehrman, nearly all scholars who study the early Christian period believe that he did exist and Ehrman observes that mythicist writings are generally of poor quality because they are usually authored by amateurs and non-scholars who have no academic credentials or have never taught at academic institutions. Maurice Casey, an agnostic scholar of New Testament and early Christianity, stated that the belief among professors that Jesus existed is generally completely certain. According to Casey, the view that Jesus did not exist is "the view of extremists", "demonstrably false" and "professional scholars generally regard it as having been settled in serious scholarship long ago".
Post your favorite historic moments
For me, it's white Iberians getting raped out of existence by MOOR and ARAB BVLLS
the only ones who got raped were the berbers and semites in the south, all their genes were removed after the reconquista
You think the arabs never got raped out of existence? What you think the Mongols, Turks and Iberians did to them from the 12th century onwards?
reminder op is fucked in the head and most likely fucks his cousin
by the looks of the spanish
they didn't remove anything but their pride
If you had to choose an American community from the year 1600 to the end of reconstruction era America, what time period & community would you choose based on novel appeal?
What would your occupation be and what was the appeal for that time period & community?
Times after the Civil war, I'd be a cowboy.
Alternatively, Fed in the 30's-60's for noir kino.
Or cross country trucker during the 70's - 90's.
I’d choose to be a mid 40s WWII veteran returning home to a quieter state like Colorado or Georgia. Life out my life in America’s golden age from 1945-1965, then die before I have to see it all go down the toilet in the Clinton era
Why are you guys so boring?
I’d want to fight in the biggest war in human history how is that boring

Romans had the best empire and everyone knows it
The Republic was better
>>11963418 >>11966141 >Germanics
100k ostrogoths and 100-200k longobards over 8-10 million native Italics
50k on a lone island of 800k-1 million inhabitants, half of which got deported by Normans as soon as they took power
Even smaller ruling elite that could field max 2.000 soldiers of their own, distributed over a territory with a population far above 3 millions
Only raided some vales in Friuli and upper Veneto, never even settled.
