he was a viking of finnish background that united a lot of slavs and founded Rus'
his descendants would rule russia until the death of Ivan IV "The Terrible"
Ok. Ivan was the first Czar, so he was of Viking decent? I though Ivan was the beginning of a new era in Russian rule and culture...?
I've got some learning to do.
russians are a mixture of a lot of different peoples, just like americans
slavs are the main group, but they have a lot of finnic and ugrian ancestry, with a sprinkling of tatar and german
That's my very elementary understanding. I was just under the impression Ivan was the beginning and not the end of an era
in a lot of ways he was
he was both...?
can you calrify?
probably a lot to clarify, haha
don't mean to ask for a history lesson haha
after mongols destroyed kiev and a lot of principalities, base of russian civilization shifted north of the forest line to places where nomadic hordes were less capable of attacking
moscow was a very loyal servant of the mongols, and gained a lot in power and wealth relatively during that time
by the 15th century, the mongols were destroying themselves through fighting between descendants of genghis khan and new warlords
so moscow was able to retake a lot of territory that had been lost
a lot of the various principalities had their own identities at that time, and regularly rebelled against moscow
Ivan IV is pretty famous for sacking novgorod, a major city that had its own identity, and he played an even larger role in his grandfather Ivan III in promoting russian identity in the territories he controlled
as time went on, the various principalities gradually lost their identities and became russians
however certain places like galicia and volhynia remained outside of russian control until 1945, and never adopted a russian identity, and instead kept their old identities as part of the old principalities. These identities became the modern ukrainian identity
so Ivan IV was part of a broader trend of centralization and russification that continued until 1917, but was exceptionally good at it
but he was still part of the old system in a lot of ways
hope that makes sense
Good introduction for sure. Let me know what you think of the book. Saw a cheap version (used) on amazon, how much did you pay? And how did you stumble on or rather settle on this book? Via interweb wormhole?
I think I was searching for medieval russian history on Amazon
it was $38 for kindle edition iirc
found a cheap used paperback. let me know how you like it. i'll probably pick it up regardless.
@Mick I read a pretty good synthesis of Russian history from the Kievan Rus all the way to Putin a couple years ago. Next time I’m near it, I’ll send you a pic of the cover. I read it with almost now background info though, so if you know a lot about Russian history, you might not be a big fan
I don't know much at all really. Very basic fun fact level.
So yeah, if you can recall or find the book and let me know, that'd be great.
this medieval russia book is pretty good so far
Gonna buy it in a batch of books soon here probably. Hopefully @Tron can remember what book he's talking about so I can get that too.
Everybody needs to read this essay
@Tron Greg was really on fire the last half of 2018. Looking forward to his new collection.
Almost finished with The Strange Death of Europe audiobook. It was great. starting on Ship of Fools.
might have sounded better with "identitarian" than "white nationalist", but you get the point
@Jacob did you know that Mufon the UFO people have a lobbyist in DC? How sad is it that white people cant have a lobby.
@Nerv - VA lmao post this in general on the main server and I'll tell you something that reminds me of
Haha. I think people think I’m weird as it is.
I’ll do it.
Good paragraph from Why We Fight
@Nemets Did you get the first or second edition (Medieval Russia)? Wondering how much it matters since I found a cheap version of the first edition.
bought the first ed. anyway, just wondering...
@Nemets I figured. It'll be nice to have some decent background knowledge on the region, just to better understand contemporary Russia both domestically and how it interacts with the US and the rest of the world.
I can’t recommend this book enough. Heard is 100 percent /ourguy/ and has great direction for the book. It’s a potential bridge for normies with tons of points that’ll get the noggin joggin.
The deconstruction and inversion of art was one of the first major attacks on the west. Modern art has been bleeding out our culture for over a century and it goes largely unaddressed. The book points out the who and the how. Plus, why traditional art was so crucial to the west.
Check it out.
Here are a few tir excepts
Aaand discord puts the images in the reverse order that they were selected 😡
I would recommend roger scruton's 'why beauty matters' if you haven't seen it. Essentially the same topic.
I got it for $0.50 at a thrift store. Would it be worth giving it a quick read?
Oh I was talking about the documentary
I’ve actually had people recommend that book to me, and I’m only just realizing I’ve seen the documentary for it on YouTube. It’s worth a watch.
^ whoops that can’t be right. The book “why beauty matters” is deconstructionist propaganda. In that case, I can’t remember this book recommendation. It’s not “the painted word” by Tom Wolfe, although that’s another good one if people like the decline and fall.
Tom Wolfe’s The Painted Word. Nothing you guys don’t know here, he just breaks down one way so few can guide so many.
From "African Population Projections: 1850-1960" by Patrick Manning
A few decades after their arrival, endogamous Sogdian merchants were already receiving privileges from the Chinese government and replacing Chinese culture with their own.
@Evan thanks for the two recommendations, I'm ordering on Amazon later today
You got it Mikolas. They’re good reads.
Also this is a good, generally bigger brained podcast that touches on some interesting topics—sponsored by Arktos
Damn we are way higher 25-45 years of age, males that is. I wouldn’t have thought it would be that long
What book is this
25 makes sense, but not really 45. Thats interesting
Book is The Social Leap by William Von Hippel
He's a liberal but awesome psychologist
His description of young males fails to recognize that men are more likely to risk for glory, die in wars, pursue dangerous careers thus having more "accidents."
Ya it’s definitely multi variable. We do it cause we have a higher reproductive output than women right? Women don’t benefit from a status and risk taking in a reproductive sense than men would
"Because chimps are brainier than baboons, they take longer to reach adulthood, and their slower maturation rate means they demand more maternal care. As a consequence, chimps have an older age of initial reproduction and lower rate of reproduction than baboons."
🤔 🤔 🤔
Whatchya thinking about it?
I'm thinking this theory is applicable to our own species. I find nature's consistency to be satisfying.
I’m fairly certain average gestation period of blacks is shorter than whites
Not finding good resources atm
Ah there ya go
Asians are pretty fascinating. I need to learn more about them and their evolutionary past
Like I’m not super informed but apparently they are in general, and especially the Chinese insanely conformist
