also re smoking as I said earlier: zizek once said there's no more real vice, drugs are practically legal, gambling is normalised, sex is fine as long as you are safe, drink is good for you in moderation only, the only true remaining vice is smoking. smoking is really the last vice. but it's being ...

I'm against the death penalty partially on the grounds of the risk of false convictions, a risk which can be somewhat mitigated but never entirely eliminated I'm not defending the death penalty, but in instances where it is usually used there is most often a significant amount of time between convi...

Eh, I wouldn't necessarily put it in those terms. Both the USSR and its dependents outside of the Warsaw Pact had a form of unspoken understanding. The Soviets would supply the weapons and money, and in exchange the colonial rebels would cause havoc for the USSR's enemies (namely Britain, France an...

That's kind of part and parcel of Communist anti-colonial movements during the Cold War though. When you actually look past the labeling and ideological idealism, most Communist movements of the post-war period were just anti-colonial groups who paid lip service to Marxism in order to get funding a...

Fair point. Pol Pot’s regime combined Maoist economics with Nazi like racism and medievalism. It was all kinds of messed up. Obviously I am anti-Marxism but cannot say Cambodia’s thing was all the fault of Marxism. I do not remember Marx saying kill racial minorities to rebuild a feudal empire. I'm...

Ugh Richard was a good fighter and that's about it. He took stupid unnecessary personal risks, was a totally incompetent administrator, didn't give the tiniest of fucks about the country he was king of and just milked it for cash so he could keep hitting things with swords.

In spirit, he was the successor who was most like Alexander, though he seems to have been more pleasant and magnanimous. He behaved how a descendant of Achilles would have been expected to behave, courageous, mighty in arms, and virtuous in his rule. The issue with Pyrrhus is that the Latins had th...

It's all fun and games until the Latins vanquish your impenetrable wall of spears by literally going around it. Hence my bit about a good commander. Alexander would have crushed the Latins. Eh, I wouldn't be so sure. Pyrrhus was a pretty competent commander in his own right, but ultimately failed t...

Pan Arabism is unworkable today. I would never propose such an idea. I want multiple Arab nations all led by descendants of the Hashemites because Arab republicanism is super cursed, much like French republicanism. It's already been tried though. In the aftermath of WWI, Iraq, the Hejaz and Jordan ...

Yes.

It's particularly disingenuous considering the very colourful views some of the posters have expressed on other matters in the past.

How can you have consent in a country where you're literally not allowed to leave? Please do not edit the reasoning out of the quote.

They get to eat grass during famines and are sent to gulags along with their families when they complain about the government. North Korea is a mirror image of what China would be like if the Cultural Revolution never ended. It's a psychotic dictatorship where the state is highly dysfunctional, and...

How? What is the point of the social contract if not do benefit the people? And what do the people there get in return for allowing a tiny elite to rule over them in basically feudal system? How did they ever agree to it? They get enforcement of law. They agreed to it in perpetuity by accepting the...

Except that I can't be bothered to get involved any further. I don't particularly care what Tarsonis thinks of Orthodox doctrine. A shrug of the shoulders, and I've already moved on. On one historical point of fact, though: You obviously missed the earlier post about Leo VI. It has very little to d...

The US didn't industrialize on the bones of slaves. It industrialized in the blood, sweat and tears of immigrants and the working class. There's a difference. ;) But in all seriousness, slavery in the US largely concentrated around plantations in the South, which were agricultural in nature and gen...

It's precisely because they didn't necessitate his actions that they discredit them. Stalin's hamfisted attempts at industrialization resulted in the unnecessary deaths of millions of his countrymen. As for his speech in 1931, whether or not Stalin believed the West was out to get him is irrelevant...
