Sup guys. So I've been pondering something recently and thought it would be an interesting topic.

Why are European/European descended people comparatively and historically so much less violent and brutal than other races of people? If you look at European wars, yes they were extremely bloody and violent but they usually did not involve mass slaughter of civilians (women and children) and mainly involved military deaths. Europeans never bayoneted babies, gassed civilians or tortured POWs either. POWs kept by the Germans in WW2 were treated very humanely as were POWs kept by the Americans. We never locked them in cages and poked them with bamboo or executed them.

Europeans also don't have a history of sex slavery/concubinage. European kings did not have huge harems like Asian (mainly Muslim) rulers did.

Nowadays it is much the same. You don't see Caucasian/white people sawing each other's heads off or strapping explosives to our bodies.

European countries are by far the most peaceful, safest and most advanced in the world and always have been. I'm curious as to why this is.

This is true. Just look at pretty much every video on LiveLeak or BestGore. It's never whites chopping off heads and dismembering each other or blowing each other up.






Nowhere in Russia is as dangerous as Chicago or Detroit.



Russia and China's cities are both far less violent crime ridden than Murica.

Lincoln shouldn't have violated habeas corpus and used it to indefinitely imprison journalists for wrongthink opinions. That was authoritarianism.

The Founders agreed in 1816 that the Federalist Party had a right to secede, and that it would go against American ideals to use to force to keep people under your boot from afar. Opposing secession was also authoritarianism by American standards.

But really, the South had a culture centralized around slavery, and they fired first. We'd be better off without them.

Fuck both sides to be honest, the only people I can respect are Copperhead Peace Democrats or people who didn't get involved at all until forced to like Jack Hinson.

>James I fell into a deep depression, his dream of an independent Island Nation shattered, the press of the world laughed at him with the exception of NY times, whom he granted the Order of Trinidad for their understanding

>James I wrote in one of his books that, "life wasn't so important or even worth living if one was to suffer, and it is of greater moment to live well than to live long, and that often it is living well not to live long."

Did you know that in 13th century Venice became most famous for its glass industry? Venetian glass was fabled to be one of the most beautiful, colourful and skillfully made. Venetian-glassmakers were held in such a high-esteem that they were allowed to marry into high Venetian nobility and they were forbidden to practice their art outside the city walls under the penalty of death.

There never was that much individuality to the republics, though. That suppression was kinda the main problem alongside faltering economy, and it was mainly propped by Tito's cult of personality that obviously perished after he died.



Albania would probably get assraped by the 60s but this time Bosnia would be part of Serbia.


A few decades of benign brainswashing and they would have realized that they were all smelly hairy mixed slav progeny with an imported semitic religion. Peace and tolerance would have surely ensued.



I doubt it. You have to keep in mind that the region was tightly held together by outside forces for a sizeable part of its history - Byzantines, Turks, Austro-Hungarians, and finally the Soviet Union. Or, alternatively, were loosely allied against an outside aggressor.

Take away that outside pressure, and the various different ethnicities immediately fall at each others' throat over who gets to have the biggest slice of the pie. Serbia in particular (from my limited understanding, please correct if wrong) was butthurt to the moon and back because the Serbs served as the de-facto ruling elite right under the Russians.

Another problem is that the forcible conversion and introduction of foreign subjects into the Balkans lead to a population displacement, so that you suddenly have Muslims in what the Serbs consider the birthplace of their people, and so on. And if you go for an insane population exchange plan a la India-Pakistan, the replaced populations will immediately claim that they were robbed of their rightfully gained clay.




If after the end of WW1 Serbia took what was offered by entente instead of accepting Yugoslav unification under their leadership.

And again, if Tito never took power and Serbia and Croatia had made a decision to go their own way without a second yugoslavia.

There's another one from Ibiza as well.

Interesting enough, during Islamic Rule in Iberia, the population shifted genetically to something akin ~50% Iberian and the rest of the ancestry being North African, Levantine, Arab and Sub-Saharan African.

But then, after the Reconquista, it seems that the Spanish really expelled every single one of them and recolonized the whole peninsula with non-mixed Spaniards.

Also, the little ancient "North African" signal in Iberians might date Carthage times.

More interesting though is the fact that the Iberian WHG were mixed with another long thought lost lineage of Cro Magnons.



Gold, by Cochran:


The left is incredibly insane, the level which they deny reality for their own delusions knows no bounds.

Been doing some experiments in global25 and indeed this seems the case. I've written some f-stats like functions that simply calculate correlations/expectations using the 25 coordinates instead of SNPs. Both Spanish_Murcia and Southeast Iberians from the 3-4 century have something Moroccan-like/Iberomaurusian-like and Levant_BA_South-like compared to Southeast Iberians from the bronze age, but Spanish_Murcia compared to the 3-4 century ones doesn't seem to need additional one.

Simple nMonte2 and nMonte3 run with Iberia_Southeast_c.3-4CE and Moroccan for Spanish_Murcia gives 100% of the first.

Using Moroccans and Levant_BA_South as well as BA Iberia gives fairly good models.

Wish I had a better PC to actually work on the raw data, but nevertheless global25 seems to be pretty powerful.

No, it has been incredibly influential. Once again, it defined the zeitgeist of that particular era (and not a few after).

Was the neanderthal crossbreeding the first instance of miscegenation? Would we all be living on Mars if we stayed proud Homo sapiens?



>Was the neanderthal crossbreeding the first instance of miscegenation?

For the specific group of sapiens who left Africa, yes.

The ones who stayed mixed a lot with other hominids.

After the Neanderthal, non-Caucasians mixed further.

But bear in mind, there's evolution by mixing and separation, and human history, going as far back as the millions of years of the Australopithecus, has been one that had both phenomena happening all the time.

Only recent stuff matters, to be honest. 50000 kya regarding macro separations, 12000 kya regarding mixing back of many populations and 6000 kya ago to now for the formation of historical people.

And that's because traits like intelligence are incredibly volatile. Many people wonder why the "west is special" when Asians have a higher IQ. That's because that wasn't the case throughout history at all - the West is experiencing a non-stop decline in IQ for more than a century, meanwhile the Asians are experiencing an unprecedented rise in theirs.

Genetics and Biology are absolute, but we left Natural Selection and replaced it with Culture. If our culture is weak and degenerate, it will select those people to breed. And this was possible due to elimination of child mortality in the past, which made the poor and the lower to reproduce and stay alive, while the rich got penalties time and time again through political means.

Hell, have you heard of the Nigerian Igbo? They're a 100% West African group genetically who has an average IQ of over a 100. They're are a minority just like the Brahmin, but they got selected for intelligence since Imperialistic times because Europeans needed non-stupids to manage things.

>Would we all be living on Mars if we stayed proud Homo sapiens?



For instance, we have the classic India example of high disparity IQ between the higher Castes and the Lower ones.

In Japan, we have a similar situation, where the Burakumin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burakumin (their lower caste, similar to India's untouchables) are complete underachievers, fill the prisons and are the vast majority of the Yakuza (70%), in contrast with the Samurai, whose descendants are still overrepresented among top positions, have higher IQs and lead society http://old.econ.ucdavis.edu/faculty/gclark/papers/Japan%202012.pdf

This process can be better explained here:


So, this selection period that only started in the civilizational era is much more important than some archaic mixture with low digits of %.

But, of course, there are some mind bogging things, like Africans having >10% of their DNA from archaics. At that level of ancestry, one wonders what's the gist.



>are complete underachievers, fill the prisons and are the vast majority of the Yakuza (70%)

Just one question

Could the result have been different in their IQ, if they weren't marginalized since feudal times?


File: 70c5b4cec8a9716⋯.jpg (1.25 MB, 4175x4175, 1:1, moon1.jpg)

We don't know that much about the intelligence of neanderthals. Some people say that they may have been actually more intelligent, but less social than humans, who knows, maybe our collective autism is a remanent of our neanderthal genes.



Yes, they would intermarry with normal people and their situation would normalize.

Who was Thomas Paine referring to in Common Sense when he mentioned "two minors have reigned" in England? I assume this is referring to cases where the heir was not old enough to be king and a regent ran the country in his place, but I'm not entirely sure.



Henry VI, Henry III, and Edward VI were all crowned as minors, and yeah, they all had regents. So I guess Paine missed one.



I missed out Edward III.
