So far, everybody's discussed the Jizyia, I haven't heard anybody talked about the "Blood Tax" and the Janissaries who came out of it.

I'm pretty sure that Christians have long since lost the right to complain about how other religions treat heathens and heretics unfairly. Islamic policies for dealing with religious enemies in the medieval and renaissance eras are barbaric by modern standards, but the first thing medieval and renaissance Christians did upon taking over a country was commit mass murder against pretty much everyone who wasn't a Christian.


See we got rid of punishment by blood a long time ago (except in North Korea).
Literally no Christians alive today were alive during the Renaissance!
Also appeal to hypocrisy is still a fallacy, even if they were.

This is like saying nobody in Russia should be able to complain about what the Nazis did because of the atrocities committed by the Soviets.

In other news, my first day at my first "true" job (i.e. a job that isn't volunteer work) is tomorrow, so that's neat, I guess. I'm working the afternoon/evening shift as a package handler/sorter at UPS.

I wish you luck. It is my firm belief that all young men who don't enter the military for a time should spend at least some time doing hard physical labor for someone they're not related to- it builds character.

If I recall correctly, people with autism aren't (generally speaking) allowed to serve in the military. And thank you for wishing me well.

I had a blood pressure issue, so I didn't enlist. But if I hadn't I might well have joined ROTC and gone through college. How different it might have been...

Well as long as you have no record of it you are fine.
If you have an official diagnosis you need to report that, but you probably can get a waiver.

It still is worth talking to a recruiter if you are interested.
At least then you know for sure.

I spent my teens as a landscaper. Would get nasty sunburns removing stumps and laying bricks. It provided some much needed perspective on things.

Why only men? I've found my job as a bodyguard just as character-building as a man would. (Doing hard physical labor shouldn't be mandatory though, for obvious reasons.)

Every empire has something we can learn.
In the case of the British and German empires, they both found a practical use for young men wealthy enough not to have to work. That's impressive by the standards of world history- Rome had them attack random people in the street and America has them become SJWs.
