  1. Re: Europe will be destroyed by job-taking robots and the Caliphate

    But they already did get past the Italian navy, as the bit about the terrorist being rescued demonstrates. Meanwhile, how many more enemies of Europe have managed to slip in among the "refugees"?

    Re: Is antigay the new anti-west?

    "Anti-black" only in some regions, though. In Africa for instance, there's a lot of black people (starting with Al Shabaab and Boko Haram) who fit all those criteria.
    I think that if you're talking...
  3. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    I'm having a déjà vu moment here. "Modern architecture" is so diverse it doesn't really make sense to judge it all in one fell swoop. There's everything from the Bauhaus borefest to very elegant,...
  4. Re: Egypt rebuilding the Lighthouse of Alexandria

    You can't have a conversation about ancient heritage in modern age Middle East/North Africa without politics.
  5. Re: Egypt rebuilding the Lighthouse of Alexandria

    It pays to read posts in their entirety...
  6. Re: Egypt rebuilding the Lighthouse of Alexandria

    Egypt desperately needs more income from tourism after all the destruction and bad press, and as long as their reconstruction is as faithful as possible and not too damaging to the environment, I...
  7. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    But only on forums and this, and in Europe in the real world. In America (for example), nobody gives a damn about Romanian identity, whereas Afrocentrism is one of their pet ideologies (there's a...
  8. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    lol @ "black folks all around them"
    Have you ever actually met an Egyptian, let alone talked to one? If so, how do they like your theories?
  9. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    Are you trolling?
  10. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    Well, I think it's safe to say that Tumor the Orc (BTW, just in case someone is offended, I didn't make up that name. I got it from a surprisingly good article on a feminist website), while possible,...
  11. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    Except I'm pretty sure that Gothmog isn't an orc in the book. Otherwise he'd never be trusted with the command of a strategic position (as the lieutenant of Minas Morgul).


    I don't remember that...
  12. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    I'm not making claims, I'm asking you to provide evidence.


    No, this is supposed to lead to evidence for your claims.



    So you have nothing except sophistry. Despite being asked to...
  13. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    No. You make claims, you provide evidence.



    So you don't want to provide proof.


    Weasel words. Which cases?
  14. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    That's a flawed argument.


    So why are you equating Afrocentrism, i.e. a bunch of theories about various historical peoples such as Minoans, Greeks, or Egyptians being black, and about...
  15. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    Why should anyone get that and what does it have to do with Tolkien?

    BTW, are there any sane Japanese artists into LotR illustration? Instead of the creepy manga/anime stuff I mean.


    I know...
  16. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    Well, what about Gondorian catapults, then?


    Which is how it goes in the real world, essentially.
    Look, I think you're essentially correct in your analysis, I just think you're taking things too...
  17. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    Well, hopefully you're right, and it'll remain unimportant.


    Firstly, it's Blut und Boden. Secondly, as I said, given that the two ideologies are essentially the same, why give the second one...
  18. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    Who's denying what?



    Afrocentrism, being essentially the same as Eurocentrism, has the potential to do just as much damage as the latter did. Especially in light of a rapidly expanding African...
  19. Re: The Left and Islam - Love-hate Relationships in the totalitarian Sector of Worldviews

    None of these parties is even remotely as dangerous or influential as the Fascist parties of the early/mid 20th century. Nor as radical (apart from some crackpot members). Also, they're quite...
  20. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    A large part of Saruman's success has to do with using the Dunlendings and their old grievances against the Rohirrim. No doubt helped by one of his "magical talents" (his voice) there.

    Also, the...
  21. Re: The Left and Islam - Love-hate Relationships in the totalitarian Sector of Worldviews

    Fascism and NS (and Communism, I might add - you seem to have forgotten it) were 70 years ago and the responsibility of another generation. Global Islamism is now.


    Overlooking how they are...
  22. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    The same could be said about the reaction to Nazi (and similar) pseudo-history. Despite it being more a thing of the past. So I think people who care about historical matters just don't like...
  23. Re: Muslim asylum seekers throw Christians asylum seekers off boat

    So what war is there going on in Eritrea, right now?


    Did you not read the news? There's been a lot of immigrants from Eritrea coming to Germany in recent times. A lot of them are said to be...
  24. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    I think Mangalore's interpretation is pretty extreme and makes the whole thing sound even more bleak than it is, which ignores the fact that in LotR, despair is seen as a vice that one must not give...
  25. Re: former docu maker Matthew VanDyke training Christian army to combat ISIS

    What's the basis for this talk about a "crusade" of Christian fanatics? I thought this was about American vets training indigenous local people to fight for themselves. Instead of getting murdered or...
  26. Re: Muslim asylum seekers throw Christians asylum seekers off boat

    Exactly, you can't compare them. Also, "diversity" is a very vague concept at its core, and useless as an ideal.


    Right. Because Africa = one country.

    I guess then you have no clue about...
  27. Re: Muslim asylum seekers throw Christians asylum seekers off boat

    Eritrea is hardly a war-torn nation. Also, can we get a source that most of them are from war-torn nations?


    So you're admitting they're not refugees.
    There were plenty of old and infirm people...
  28. Re: former docu maker Matthew VanDyke training Christian army to combat ISIS

    What a brilliant remark. I guess fighting the Nazis wasn't a very Christian thing to do, either. Should've just let them do their thing...
  29. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    Well, Gondor is in near-constant trouble due to several plagues, invasions (either Easterlings or Corsairs, sometimes both), civil war, and having to essentially play world police. And then there's...
  30. Re: Muslim asylum seekers throw Christians asylum seekers off boat

    Do you have a source saying that they were refugees, and not simply migrant workers or settlers? Don't you find it curious how most of these "refugees" are healthy young men, and not women, children,...
  31. Re: Muslim asylum seekers throw Christians asylum seekers off boat

    Well, that of the German government (and of the upper class that supports it) is "no solidarity with our own people, or any other Europeans. Bring 'em on".
  32. Re: Muslim asylum seekers throw Christians asylum seekers off boat

    A plane ticket is much cheaper (and safer) than what they pay the smugglers. The problem is, you'll have to be an actual refugee to be allowed to enter legally.



    I'm surprised at this sudden...
  33. Re: New York City buses MUST show controversial ad (anti-Muslim) on grounds of free speech

    This is about Jews, not Israel. You may stop with the strawmen now.


    And who's the authority on what's a "nutjob conspiracy site"?


    Well, since attacking one's own people doesn't count, nor...
  34. Re: Why is there a huge rise of Afrocentrism in history?

    Is Afrocentrism actually a thing outside of North America? From what little I've seen, North Africans at least don't seem to be fans of it (oddly enough, they are convinced they know what their own...

  36. Re: a Nomadic DLC & a Idea for Total War Attila a Patch idea...

    How about fixing the Alans first, before adding some Northeast Asian factions to a European/Middle Eastern theatre? Might as well have the Olmecs and the Zulu, while we're at it.
  37. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 5 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Depends on which time period Spartans we're talking about.


    That's a more valid complaint. Logically speaking, every warrior should have a dagger or knife of some sort. Probably a sword, axe, or...
  38. Re: New York City buses MUST show controversial ad (anti-Muslim) on grounds of free speech

    They may have been Mizrahi Jews. Also, I wouldn't say all Med people weren't white. While they obviously tend to have a darker skin tone than NW Europeans, I've seen plenty of pale Italians, Greeks,...
  39. Re: New York City buses MUST show controversial ad (anti-Muslim) on grounds of free speech

    Most Ashkenazim (the main Jewish group affected by the genocide) are white - just look at Jewish celebrities from the US. On average, they may be slightly darker than Central Europeans, but that...
  40. Re: New York City buses MUST show controversial ad (anti-Muslim) on grounds of free speech

    "Jew" is not a skin colour.


    Probably "Anti"fa.
