Possible, but only because dictators make monumentally dumb decisions from time to time. Not because your argument makes any sense. Because it doesn't. It's shit

The Roman Empire only truly died in the 15th century with the Turkish conquest of Constantinople - the then capital. I'd say it was a husk after the Venetian crusade, but that's hardly "hundreds of years" after "Rome"

Those parts of Europe converted "a thousand years later" were converted by the same Greceo-Roman Orthodox-Catholic culture. Hands down.

You are showing your ignorance of history and making the same mistakes as those disagreeing with you: you've simplified history to the point of nonsense. But you are correct there is no "white" culture, the particular cultural thread they are grasping for can be found anywhere in any skin colour or ethnicity: to deny that is to betray the core tenants of what they supposedly admire

Roman Christian heritage with the unique benefits of: Charity Rational and Reasoned Intellectual Investigation leading to: secular science metaphysics applied ethics Only significant reduction in use of slavery / involuntary labour (at least until it was reintroduced by Protestantism. Sort of).

Although the English speaking world refers to the "Byzantiums" that brought Orthodox Christian civilization to Eastern Europe as "Non Romans" that is a lie by Gibbons and other British Empirialist Apologists. They considered themselves the Eastern Roman Empire and just as Roman as any point in history.

So there is a common cultural root, slowly fading of course.

Jewish Atheist i.e. Kefir culture rejects most of the above (as well as its own rich heritage) so would have to excluded as not sharing similar culture

Also, paktun / afgani people can be "pigmented" and look more "white" facial feature wise than most European Latins yet they wouldn't be included in a shared cultural heritage, so your argument falls over a bit there

It isn't something Jewish people as a whole present to outsiders - the idea of Kofer or Atheist Jewish People and the litany of problems arriving from some of them for the world and faithful Jewish people.

I wonder if us on the outside don't hear about this because Kofer are the ones in positions to make their voice heard: and suppress Orthodox messaging. Just look at the horrid and bigoted "Unorthodox" Netflix series.

I have been doing some reading on Jesus by [deleted] in whatever

[–]TooMuchClay 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

None of the original sources or those who wrote shortly after with near access to the sources agree with anything you've said here. And the new testament + early writings are far far far more in the vein of accurate accounts than anything else from classical antiquity.

You think Titus was remotely unbiased? Livy? Plutarch? Please. And don't get me started on the Classical Greek historians, they would have been right at home with today's NewsShow hyperbole. You should read what Josephus had to say on them. Ouch.

The development of a working metaphysical model for scientific investigation, as well as the very concept of charity and the freedoms won by peasants by the late middle ages prove that the Western and Eastern traditions of Christianity have contributed more to civilization than anything else.

But you'll unfortunately likely only realize how wrong your "theories", supported by nothing more than your hate and spite, are when you plunge head first into self torment after your brief time is up.

Any search for Truth cannot be a bad thing but ask yourself: are you really prepared to accept the truth, even if it means Christian Tradition was right all along?

No your'e right that the education aspect is good. Notice parents do this with their pre-schoolers during whatever time, long or short, they spend with them, so if it were an evil, everyone would doing bad.

The 30/40 hour a week loss of being with a parent is the problem. And it's deliberate. Besides early childhood caregivers are not raising education standards, the numbers show instead significant loss of core language and math fluency across populations that use these services

Her early education push is the same tired critical Marxist horror story intended to break down the traditional family unit and shore up unproductive corporate cartels with cheap, compliant young female workers.

Pre-school childcare puts the child at high risk of a swathe of behavioral problems that never leave them. And gives progressives the opportunity to sexualize them at the same time... doing this sort of shit to young kids is psychotic -and- evil.

That's why the private friendly societies early 20th cent. were good: sure you'd get welfare but they come round and check you weren't laming it up and help you back to work. They had their Dr's. as well to keep things on the level.

And if you didn't like it? Could always change who you were with. Can't do that with State Monopolies.

Nah - the random word soup button is broken: I wrote that all myself arent I clevers.

As in "classical liberalism": i.e. turn of last century most Americans welfare was provided by private non- profit friendly societies, not welfare. It has been argued that much of African American over representation in negative demographics is due to the destruction of the family unit due to socialist welfare programs brought in by FDR. FDR admitted that his program would hurt them , but if he knew by how much is unclear (to me)

In the same mode school choice is a win for the family unit that keeps society healthy

By small school taxes I mean that rather than 100% of your tax component that goes to schools being converted to vouchers, only 99% with 1% (say) helping those who can't afford schools i.e. a parent with multiple sclerosis

I am horrified everytime I read about situations like this in the states : it's shocking how anti- liberal developments in the USA over the last 50 years or so have been.

Not that other western nations like mine are better... as you say choice on how to spend your money leads to better choices. But do you think -some- small schooling taxes should be withheld to support the really poor families?

No, not many, simply untrue. Pro-lifers believe in the case of real danger to the mother saving her life comes first. Weirdo outliers that believe evil shit are not an example against the whole. I've met leftos that actually believe the Catholic Church used to burn witches. I don't other progressives on their ignorance.

Read a little more what other opinions are before representing them. I.e. I understand the pro-choice concerns regards reproductive rights. And it's a valid concern and worth listening to

Except they did. Fox's Guttfield and his rent-a-friend segment raised the complexity of the issue and its resultant conflicting solution propagation -which included gun control-.

Tucker Carlson's segment is real investigative journalism packaged into a short rhetoric video-bite. There is clearly real depth behind his (teams) work, but the reductive format introduces omission and semantic errors; there's a couple of obvious ones at the least that I find each "episode".

Being a called-in-expert on a network is usually a cushy position semi-retirement reward for supporting agendas from their org. that have a strong vein within the studio.

I don't understand the pure laziness here: it's easy enough to do a sample frame analysis to check the alleged geolocation of the video...

Ive seen lots of this from the progressive/ CT side of the house: be interesting to see what form this sort of snide blazen unprofessional "expertism" takes among conservatives.

I'd also not trust anything above Major rank that much as "experts", as they advance above that, their career becomes more beaucrat and less subject matter.
