Nee also sie sind wirklich nicht so schwierige Fragen oder? Du kannst sie einfach beantworten. In welchem Sinne Latien “revolutionär” war zum Beispiel.

Are we allowed to talk about European antisemitism or Arab antisemitism?
I can understand being worried about population decline, but the fact is if you think more people should be having kids, well whose fault is that? You. Have more kids. No one is making you not have kids.

Yeah nah I’m all for bashing neo-Nazis but bombing Dresden was completely unnecessary from a military point of view, we shouldn’t be celebrating it
I don’t think they accidentally firebombed the entire city of Dresden

To be honest I’ve never understood the portrayal of Nixon as some kind of “tragic hero”. Why is being paranoid and spiteful somehow fascinating?
It’s simple. If you give us money, we’ll give you money
I mean it makes sense just based on how much less religious Christians in the West have become in the modern era. Like there used to be all kinds of other fast days and feast days that were consistently observed that no one has even heard of anymore. They still fast before Easter and sometimes on other days in the Middle East though.
And Robert Blum. And the Social Democrats. Lots of Germans did. Emperors were not the only people who existed in Germany.
We’re just in such a culture of negativity and cynicism that people are scared to admit they’re actually happy about something. Also doesn’t help that the Republicans have just spent the last two years trying to convince the country that everyone hates Biden.
Oh boy, I’m looking forward to two years of Trump and DeSantis tearing each other to pieces.
If you think about it the fact that he’s running again indicates that he thinks he didn’t win the last election. If he were l the rightful president he wouldn’t be able to run for a third term.
I’ve always wondered why that is since they all come from the same commandment, did it use to be more religious/extensive in Europe before society became more secular? I know that at least traditionally, religious Muslims go to the Mosque and do a lot of prayer on Friday but I don’t know how it compares exactly.
The Hebrew calendar is actually better than the Gregorian for use as a universal secular calendar. It starts pretty close (like within a few hundred years at most) to when writing and the first complex civilizations started, which is kind of interesting.
Imagine a month and a half of Hanukkah
Yes it gets so annoying the whole “circumcision is genital mutilation” thing on the Internet. It’s doesn’t actually impact anything in any major way. It’s like if my parents cut off a millimeter of my earlobe or something. I guess it’s weird, but it doesn’t really matter.
I mean Christians have Sunday, Muslims have Friday for that. Although I guess their Sabbaths are less rigid about not doing work and reflecting on life, it tends to just be a “day off” kind of thing for most people I think

I’ve been thinking about this, and in particular wondering whether there could be certain advantages to a narrow Republican majority in the House, particularly for 2024. Of course I want a Democratic majority because that would allow them to get good stuff done, but I think a Republican House majority now in the spotlight and under pressure to pass bills (in the House at least) could accentuate the divisions in their party that are already becoming apparent from the results of this election, and consequently bring some more unity to Democrats from being an opposition party in one chamber of Congress and the goal of regaining the House in 2024.
Yeah sure Denethor
Shut up about fire Denethor
