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"

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:01:09  

Patrick O'Brien's World History Atlas

Thomas 2018-03-15 03:01:17  

Alright fellas, what should we set this week's topic for?

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:01:28  

Whatever you want

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:02:26  

Should we follow a podcast or book?

Thomas 2018-03-15 03:03:41  

Alright, because we are Amfirst, we'll do the American Revolutionary War as our very first topic.

The war was between American Rebels, and the British Empire lasting from Apr 19, 1775 – Sep 3, 1783, get to chatting fellas!

Thomas 2018-03-15 03:04:09  

Do you think it was more miraculous that America won its independence, or was it inevitable?

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:04:11  

Horatio Gates - big gay, or giga faggot?

Thomas 2018-03-15 03:05:19  

@Deleted User Don't know enough about the fellow.

Thomas 2018-03-15 03:05:28  

Seems like a queer from what little I'm reading of him.

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:05:44  

If you looked at the political climate of the time period with the age of enlightenment it wasn't too amazing

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:06:19  

But the if it weren't for the Seven Years War it would not have happened

Thomas 2018-03-15 03:06:19  

But I mean militarily, do you think it was any amount of difficult or unlikely?

Thomas 2018-03-15 03:06:39  

I hold the personal belief that we were very, very fortunate.

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:06:44  

Militarily I'd say it was pretty miraculous

Deleted User 2018-03-15 03:07:13  

yeah which battle was the turning point? Trenton?
