Yeah some shit exist like the DRC, but I've grown to appreciate the shape of nations like Chad or Tanzania.

Anyone else with me? Or just hate for Africa's modern borders all around?

Bruh, they're underrepresented, nevermind underrated. IRL, you can barely tell the state exists, nvm the border. Shit, the CAR doesn't even have a single paved road, even in the capital. its so remote, their diamonds have to be panned for by hand. When last did you hear of artisanal diamond mining? They actually had a leader who, in the late 70s, was eating his political enemies. He supposedly fed human flesh to the French ambassadors (France supported him, but clearly he resented the former colonial overlords). Every 10 years on the dot, they have another group of bandits take the capital and "rule the country". They seldom do much more than hold onto Bangui.

Congo functions like several different countries; Katanga province may as well be independent. Somalia and Libya don't exist either. Total state collapse. These guys don't have a government with control over territory. The DRC has a dude who sits in the capital and sometimes takes profit from some mining operation somewhere, but usually doesn't project power until someone comes for the capital. But Somalia and Libya? Not even the capitals are really uncontested.

Mali only really exists in the one half, the rest is desert which is raided the fuck out by Berber nomads every few years. Most of the Sahara is kinda up for grabs, and is sporadically controlled by shifting groups of Berber trading networks who bring contriban into Mediterranean ports and trade slaves. The French had to sort them out in 2012, because they nearly took the Malian capital.

Rwanda and Uganda have carved up most of the eastern DRC for themselves, but the northern parts of UG are relatively uncontrolled, and seperatist militia still jam out there. Etheopia has de facto control over most of Eritrea, and Swaziland is a South African colony (works like the old Bantustans, but with international recognition), just to make bubble gum, space heaters and shitty coiltop stoves for low income South Africans. Shit, SA is the most urbanised and modern state on the continent, and even there, there are places no road reaches and people have never seen a non-black person (even though the racial minorities count for 25% of population). They let rural areas be administered by chieftans rather than actually building modern infrastructure, so it gets wierd outside of big towns and cities, and chiefs have serious independence and authority in some regions, particularly Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Africa is still fresh. Its fascinating to watch real statebuilding, like from scratch.

To be fair, Russians and Chinese are xenophobic cultures. They hate the US, but they hate each other too. At least the middle east just hates the US because of religion. You can change religions. You can't change your race.

I like these results. European Federation for the win. For a united and stable European Empire that's independent and strong in the international community.

Historian 17/12/14(Thu)12:20 No. 15060

jesus, I honestly don't get why right wingers are so stupid about the EU. If the Eu is too lefty for ya, VOTE IN THE FUCKING EU ELECTIONS. its madness. Like, the Chinese government's opinion of an independent Britain is pretty much that its trade preferences dont matter for shit. "Nice place to send the kids for university, otherwise meh". Yeah, they were so scared of a few little Arabs they actually thought spreading their arsehole to the Chinese and Americans would be an easy ride (how's that special relationship looking now?).

Why everybody looks at Russia and thinks they're worth emulating is beyond me. Russia is a stupid shithole run by corrupt aristocrats who kill who they like while everyone else drinks and AIDSes themselves into oblivion.

I fucking love Europe, but there are just enough idiots in there to actually make the survival of the union a close call. Its like, nobody can figure out what it actually takes to preserve culture and prestige, they think independence turns you into the USA. It doesn't, it just as often turns you into the Iraquois. Spastic little ethnonationalist tits.

Whats worse is that the ethnonationalists tend to neglect actual culture and literature and stuff. they like the prestige, but they dont really care about any of it enough to learn a piano sonata or read some fucking Goethe or donate to historical monument preservation, or any such thing. FUCK me. Why is this? Like, my favourite part is how in the US, the Republicans cut funding for the arts. Repeatedly. FUCKING WHY? what replaces the crumbling operas, theatres and ballets is POP CULTURE, which is dominated by hiphop and other crap. Not so happy now, are you?

Best union would be: 1)post-Putin EU Federation which included a reformed Russia. If I were supreme ruler, i'd break up Russia a bit. redraw Finland to take in the Russian Finns, and chuck those irritating little Muslim Caucases oblasts.

2)Anglosphere ftw (NZ, OZ, UK, CA, US)

Anything smaller is unambitious and boring.

In here we discuss mankind's original 3 ancestors: Japheth, Shem, and Ham and the people who came from them.

Shem the Name and Renown ones
The Arabs, the Persians, the Jews, and the Babylonians came from him. He was the special one of the family. Shem's line gave way to all the Big Biblical figures like Abraham, Nebuchadnezzar, King David, Solomon, Moses, John the Baptist, and most importantly the Great Jesus Christ.

Ham the Hot ones
The Egyptians, Hittites, The Carthaginians, Pheonicians, The Libyans, Many East Indians, and the Ethiopians are primarily from Ham's line. Was kind of a trouble maker of the family. Famous members of his lineage are Hannibal the Carthaginian, Nimrod, and King Ramses.

Japheth the Fair ones and the Enlarged ones
The Celtics, the Germans, The Chinese, Slavics Japanese, Koreans, Mongolians, Barbarian Turks, Greeks, Anglos, and American Indians all come from him. Has perhaps the most numerous and most diverse bunch of sons in the family. Famous members of his lineage are King Alfred, Charlemagne, Geronimo, Charles Martel, Montezuma, Sun Tsu, Chief Joseph, Lief Erickson, Leonidas, King Richard, and Julius Caesar.

Combinations of 2 or 3 brothers occurred later in history. In East India, Aryans and Alexander's troop got with Cushite Indians making a Japheth/Ham combination. In Southeast Asia was another combination of Japheth/Ham.

Along the borders of the Middle East, Solomon and other Semite peoples were known to get many Ethiopian chicks. Thus a Shem/Ham combination.

Only if you are completely ignorant of biology, genetics, archaeology, zoology, history, paleontology, linguistics, and any non-religious based historical accounts of ancient history should anything OP says here be plausible to you or considered a reasonable account of anything.

And to be clear Herodotus does not count as a reliable historical account.

How would other countries react if Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Sweden were to all conglomerate into a single functioning unit? How pissed would Russia be? Would Germany be equally nervous?

Could this new country Scandinavia not theoretically increase positive production through unification since it provides more incentives for investing into different areas for the wealthy?

Is something like this prohibited by EU, what if they did it anyways would people start embargoing them? Would other countries/regions possibly start doing the same thing elsewhere?

What a surprise, another person who can dish it out but can't take it.

Don't like ad hominem attacks? Don't launch them.

>Do you feel validated now?
Well, I'll only feel validated once 1+1=3. Until that happens you're just another fool who tried to peddle his /x/ thread in another board and keeps crying about how horrible people are for not taking him seriously.

Listen, I get it. You can't admit you made a mistake. The entire fabric of reality has to have been changed. You are infallible. But what you need to realize that this isn't true. This is just a symptom an underlying mental illness. You need help to realize that you're not an infallible god who never makes mistakes. Please get the help you so desperately need before you start trying to kill all the lizard people or shooting at chemtrails or whatever other weird idea pops into your head.

Ali burns in hell as an unrepentant Muslim vermin and those Christians who cry for him and America the most filthy country since Sodom will burn with that bastard.

Ali did nothing in his life, his works were meaningless. He was a filthy black Muslim and Christ hater in life and he now burns in eternal torment.
