which episode is this?

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:50:57  

the first 15 or so

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:51:18  

I think I'll start on it tomorrow

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:51:22  

sounds interesting

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:51:51  

and a lot more relevant than Roman history

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:52:45  

I think roman history is relevant too

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:52:47  

in a general sense

shinjitsu 2018-03-15 02:53:18  

Not in the sense that you can relate to modern politics though

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:53:21  

you begin with a state that had the political strength to survive the loss of 200,000 of its strongest, bravest men

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:53:23  

and still come out on top

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:53:54  

produce leaders like cincinnatus, construct a navy from scratch, produce an innovative system of gov't that worked for 400 years

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:54:05  

not as relevant compared to Revolutions

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:54:10  

only to degenerate into nigger tier coups, extralegal exceptions, street fighting, and civil wars

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:54:16  

like the podcast lol

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:54:20  

idk

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:54:35  

I think it's very relevant given that Rome was a republic for half of its history

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:55:20  

and I think that all republics have to deal with authority, distribution of power, constitutionality, and the rise/decline of the institutions over time

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:55:21  

Well for sure, the lessons that Rome taught were incredibly important

shinjitsu 2018-03-15 02:55:48  

Yeah but the details are nowhere near as important

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:56:12  

yeah the details are only there to inspire general theory

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:56:32  

But you can say the English Civil War was directly influential to America's founding

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:56:37  

but I don't think it makes it any less important if you're really trying to understand politics

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:56:40  

oh absolutely

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:56:49  

what do you think inspired Locke to write his two treatises of gov't?

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:57:24  

people really underestimate how influential locke was to the American colonists, also how disproportionately influential he was

shinjitsu 2018-03-15 02:57:58  

That's one thing they get right in school

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:58:02  

there was all sorts of thinkers at the time, with all sorts of works of varying popularity circulating the colonies, but for such an age of enlightenment, people weren't really as well read as the period is often portrayed

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:58:35  

I remember looking at some primary documents about harvard students in the 1700s

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:58:50  

a dorm burned down and the school was filing claims to restore property to the students

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:01  

so you could see what every student claimed as his property, including the books that they had

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:06  

lots of bible

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:10  

lots of random textbooks

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:14  

some john locke

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:23  

everything else in very small quantities

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:27  

honestly, it's kind of like today

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:31  

in a sense

Deleted User 2018-03-15 02:59:44  

though replace the bible with some random social media bullshit or maybe the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy lol

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:00:07  

people like james madison, benjamin franklin, alexander hamilton, and james madison were one out of a thousand

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:00:32  

You have any book recommendations on European history?

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:00:46  

Or should I just get a textbook for something like that?

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:00:55  

I have a good recommendation of a "textbook"
