Message from The Soy Goy in Nice Respectable People Group #general
Yeah, a civilization that old and one today won't be perfect parallels but they are sure good as examples of what not to do.
History is a parable, if we will learn from it.
doesn't seem like we have, or will.
We could use a good ass kicking. It may drive all those who shouldn't be in the military out.
Military is way too cushy right now.
Just a way to pay for school and retire early for most ...
It's mostly just pog jobs that are cushy
A good ass kicking is all we have been getting for the last 20 years. And then we only fund the cushy benefits more so we can get more people in.
tell my friends who went to war that... (too cushy)
And pay for your sex change of course.
Being a grunt or a pilot or in spec ops is still really difficult
Yes, the Roman Empire was a collection of distinct nations. They would have been better advised to simply have a united Italy. Back then they would have been able to whip all comers. But also back then, the SOP was to conquer as many of your neighbors as possible. It kind of worked even though it was unstable. But after all, the Greek Ptolemaic dynasty ruled Egypt for hundreds of years. Back then I don't think they had a whole lot of situational awareness though. The ancients were sort of "go for it" types.
Too many people join simply for the GI bill.
Those are who I run into
A huge portion of the medical people I work with are puggy military
In it just for the payout.
But like the Jews, I'm sure it's "not all".
The romans and americans are basically incomparable, their society was built on martial might from the ground up
They went out to conquer shit to win personal glory and prestige, not to some high minded loyalty to Rome or whatever
^now that's the truth
Americans on the otherhand don't really have anything that drives them
Other than like money I guess
The Russians have super high moral, and their weapons procurement is mission oriented. Do any of you guys ever read the Saker in his Vineyard. He is disgusting Communist apologist, but he is totally in tune with the fact that the U.S. is the irrational aggressor all over the world. The U.S. neoCons are total psychos. He is also a keen military analyst who knows the team rankings among the world's militaries. What scares him to death is that at some point the Anglo-Zionist Empire will be backed into a corner where they will simply lash out with everything they have. Desperate losers are very, very dangerous.
We used to but definitely not anymore
Perhaps I wouldn't have a grudge against the GI bill seekers if I respected them
The russians play up the anglo saxon dominance thing a lot
In my work place it is minority imports and girls that have no fight in them that join.
It's not that dire
At least not with drumpf in charge
Rome had an interesting dynamic around its society where they looked down on merchants to an extent. The tax collecting class that served in the upper echelons of the military (The Equites aka Calvary) were seen as lesser than those of noble blood.
Crassus was the richest man to ever exist and he died being a bitter loser cause he never won any glory as a great general
The merchant class was looked down on by most western societies until relatively recently right?
Crassus's net worth was something like 180 billion usd in todays money
No almost every colonial empire was built off the merchant class
Certainly the two best ones, the Dutch and the English
@The Soy Goy And that is exactly why the White brotherhood is rising so fast. The story of Europe and the U.S. as success stories is the story of White people. Period. Everybody else is just a parasitic drag. Even the much-vaunted Asians have had to learn everything from us. If only I could get my wife to join the White sisterhood. She hates Trump because he is so "mean." I've told her that that is exactly what is called for right now. The hell of it is, she actually agrees with my extreme Right views on individual issues. Never mind, As soon as Whites stand up for themselves in a big way, the ladies will come flocking to the banner. That's how it always happens.
Things like money lenders and bankers have always been looked down on but I would hazard a guess that has more to do with the people in those professions rather than the professions themselves
I always had the impression that class structure was something like: officials, artisans/scholars, merchants, peasants.
