manga was retaliation to the capecrap you yanks crap out.


Also, the serb loser whacking the arogant austrian prince was just a pretext to start WW1.

i'll let you guys hash this out. i'm aware of cause and effect, but most of history i am ignorant of(including ww1). my previous post was based on the meme, and not to be taken seriously. the only thing i was really serious about was missing the samurai.

while the armor aesthetic is cool and ofc muh katana best blade... the sociodynamics of feudal Japan is another deep rabbit hole. Samurai could do whatever they want pretty much to the commoners.

if what i read is accurate, the only thing samurai did wrong was fight each other. i get the gist that they were serious noblemen serving their country honorably. if anyone disrespect(s)/(ed) such a person, they did/do indeed deserve to be struck down like the slime they are.

but that's my opinion, based off of what little i read.

soldiers these days can't be noble, because they serve corrupt leaders for corrupt causes. but maybe even samurai were only tools as well; who knows. it's not like you can rely on people to tell you the truth about the past; since so many are brainwashed and take dishonest propaganda for fact; and likely most mainstream sources of possible information are controlled by those who lie and deceive for personal gain, or out of malice(or both).

also, because this is the vw, and i'm tired, i just want to say the words:

chicken butt.


there. my spam quota for today is filled. now i can go back to being serious.

samurai were explicitly taken care of, from what i read. i doubt they had need of anything.

It's a classic.

Most actual samurai, however, were scumbags ...and not even by today's standards.

Heh...

History. Even the Japanese will not claim otherwise.

It wasn't all bad, of course, but bushido (just like chivalry) is not what movies would have you believe is like. And many samurai only paid lip service to it, in the first place.

the last samurai movie i watched was that garbage with tom cruise years ago. i haven't really read too much about them, but what i've read apparently paints a very different picture from what you all've read.

then again, most debaters on this site are wrong about everything, so i'll take what you say with a grain of salt, if you don't mind. nothing personal; just that the consensus here at globalist hq is overwhelmingly wrong.

also take into the account that the Yakuza see themselves as the modern samurai.

Read about actual feudal Japan Fredmuffin, not retards like Matpat or other crapheads.

I'd say start with the Genpei War. remember to use Google Scholar , or Library Genesis, and not youtube idiots.

Yeah, Samuri were basically just Japanese knights. The ones that worked for a lord were "landed" samurai that ostensibly speaking had to follow their lord's decrees, but functionally only did so with land-owning citizens under their lord's rule. They weren't necessarily cruel and unusual to the peasants, but they also weren't respectful paragons of honor and justice. Just flawed noble-caste warriors like the knights of Europe.

There were also "ronin" that were landless knights that sold their services like any well-trained knight-mercenary. Ronin mercenary companies and solo sell-swords were at least as common as their landed counterparts, and the fact that even the romanticized revisionist view of Japanese history still casts them as honorless cows despite keeping them as clearly samuri (just "fallen" samurai who have lost their honor/ never followed bushido/ lived while their entire clan died) says a lot.

and that's just scratching the surface of feudal japan's sociological aspects.

if it's pop culture, the novel "Shogun" by James Clavell is the most accurate account of it.

other than that, stick to actual historiography, not the children's colouring books you yanks call textbooks.

other studies

gay men have slightly feminized brains, and gay women have slightly masculinized brains

A follow up study was done on trans people that controlled for sexuality
