I tried to book a flight to Canada one time and the people at the flight agency asked me "Why do you want to go to Canada?" I told them it was none of their business and to just give me a ticket. They murmured amongst themselves, then, seeming to have come to a consensus, one of the workers approached me. He told me, "take a step forward please." I did as he ordered, and the other worker pressed a button under her desk. Just then, a trap door opens up below me and I fall into the abyss. I broke both my legs and died (presumabley, as I was never heard from again).

When did war stop being glorious?

In the past people joined the war with intention of gaining honor.

I reckon it was the Civil war that really ended the glory of war. I think it has something to do when warring countries ceased to respect eachother.

>When did war stop being glorious?
When video killed the radio stars.

With printed media it was normal to sensationalise. headlines and leads sold war as a glorious thing everyone could be proud of partaking in as it was personal sacrifice for the greater good, if you said otherwise it wouldn't get past the censors and it wouldn't be published. There was also a speculation aspect, there was delay between prints which allowed people to speculate what was happening on a week to week basis. People got invested in the story of war.

Radio carried on this tradition, but struggled, whilst the state controlled the broadcaster the ability to provide regular updates and lack of headlines and leads it became more of a daily affair rather than a highlight of the week reading about the war effort. Rather the sensational stories were being shown as newsreels in movie theatres.

TV has ultimately taken away the glory, the daily sensationalise of news stories has reduced the impact, everyone can now "see" and get updates on wars on a daily basis.

I agree with those who say that war was never glorious. We glorify warriors because of the horrors they are willing to face. Whether you are an Assyrian archer, a Greek hoplite, a Frankish heavy cavalryman, or a Navy SEAL, there is nothing glorious about war. Glory comes from surviving long enough to convince yourself that it WAS glorious; while you're drinking a pint at your local. There is not a man...at least a 'non-progressive' man...who does not look at the horrors of battle and question if he has the courage to face them.

Read the Anglo-Saxon poem fragment 'The Battle of Maldon', and J.R.R. Tolkien's superb treatise on it. Damn little that is 'glorious' to be found there...which leads me to agree with the authorities who maintain that the author was there when the spears were shivering, and who therefore KNEW what war really was.

India is The Motherland of the european whites as well as the arabic-semite whites.

India is the Motherland from which the both यूरोपan whites and the semitic Whites were born.

Read my worldview. I'd like to hear your opinions.

I did research for my firm and yes you PAY to use research libraries. You get an account and pay per year. When I went to UNI you could only access the research if you were enrolled in the school, and when I was no longer signing up for classes I was immediately removed. That and we had a fee to use the library and it was 700USD a semester.

I think you are the confused one, anon. You probably use public information which is outdated.

What are you talking about? Why are you relying on JSTOR or some other Lexus Nexus clone? What references are you fucking trying cite? Good God, stop trying so hard to be oppressed and just get on with craving black cock.

Do you not see a problem with the church being synonymous with "corporate entity"?

No, I don't think a faith can survive unless money is used to build its base. That's just how the world works.

Catholicism is the true form of the Christian faith. And Christianity is the correct religion.

Has there been a period time where so many people have no issue with a soulless harmful thing? Is this what shows we have too many people in the world because they honestly don't think plastic is bullshit?

When else in human history were people overpopulated as all fuck so they constantly dealt with a stupid thing in their home which was culturally destructive and its production almost reproductionally destructive?

I can't think of anything.
