Mosley was one of the weirdest political figures of Interwar Britain. The so-called "British nationalist" was pro-Irish separatism, pro-Gandhi, pro-Europe and ultimately ended up moving to Paris. British Fascism was odd. Yeah pretty sure he supported the concept of a European Nation. Yeah...

According to Carl Schmitt, democracy diverges radically from liberalism and narrow constitutionalism, the two forces being intrinsically incompatible in the context of the Weimar Republic. In "The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy" , he argues quite convincingly that no discernible differ...

There is a common belief taught among the upper ranks in Turkey that America is effectively run by Jews. The easiest way to insure themselves is to keep good relations with Israel especially in regards to defense. This keeps the human rights brigades at bay. Even Mr. Erdogan won't halt defense coop...

Yeah, it was quite silly and short-sighted. Then again, the Song were really just a discount version of the Tang Dynasty. Militarily they were never particularly strong, and their dynasty ultimately got wrecked by barbarian invaders. I will give it to the Chinese - they bounce back WAY better from ...

You might find the hats rather annoying. You probably already know this, but they were designed to be intentionally long and uncomfortable, so that the emperor's court officials couldn't whisper into each others' ears and engage in gossip/typical eunuch stuff. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia...

Anyone care to share their xenophilial tendancies? I've been delving into Song dynasty China because of my fondness for Song Neo-Confucianism.

Honestly, the bigger mistake was giving his successor (no matter who it was) as much power as he did. Spain needed to transition to democracy either way, but continuing a gradual transition under the Francoist regime would have been far better in the long run than trusting some exiled monarch to ke...

The only major problem with both of them is the fact they inadvertently set their regimes up to fail after they died. In the case of Franco, he named as his successor a degenerate monarch who had no real interest in maintaining the Francoist regime. Franco should have picked Javier-Enrique de Borbo...

Both were pretty based and redpilled tbh. I did admire Salazar's expertise on economics and his fight to save Portugal's colonies from the Socialist UN. Franco probably did better with what he had, but Salazar is highly admirable. The only major problem with both of them is the fact they inadverten...

Public shaming would help. Bring back tar-and-feathering, put the guilty parties in a pillory for a few days and sell rotten tomatoes to passersby. Could even turn it into a public fundraising event. $1.00 per tomato, make your shots count! Actually public shaming in general is not a bad idea for m...

Here is how you could fix adultery, very simply. You could create a law providing a defence to murder if you kill a person who was having an affair with your wife. It would have to have an objective test, and it would have to be something you'd have to prove very well, but it should be law. Eh. I t...

Do they truly? Most people do not go to work because they genuinely enjoy their job. They do so because the alternative is poverty, and likely death. This is especially the case in labour-intensive jobs with similar risks of mortality. While some folks lack the luxury of choice in their work enviro...

And a person generally accepts those risks, and can seek treatment if such risks are borne through. The fact that a risk might be 'small' is no rationale to deny the person a right to rectify that risk if it is presented. The risk looks small because it's camouflaged by the extreme efficiency of mo...

Then you have to either reject the idea of modern society or forego all notions of consistency. Modern society as it stands is full of instances of risks being forced upon other people. Be it as simple as going to work to earn a wage or as complex as being forced to serve a prison sentence, risks a...

Listen, there's plenty decent of arguments for allowing abortions, but a negligible mortality rate certainly isn't one of them. There is such a thing called pragmatism. In this particular instance, rejecting the idea of forcing a risk on another person, however small it might be, strikes me as quit...

Is that globally or in the US? US, primarily. Amusingly, it is higher in the US than in a goodly number of other countries. Either way, in the US, the CDC currently gives odds for dying from pregnancy (as of 2016) at 16.9 deaths per 100,000 pregnancies. Or more simply, the odds of dying from pregna...

Which a pregnancy in general is, inherently.
