Pyzhikov: Russians was created by the Jesuits.
Under Catherine the Great the Jesuit project in Russia begins. Catherine the Second decided to make a major ideological turn. She decided to form "one people" as soon as possible, one nation. In other words, to depict the unity of the ruling stratum and the population. That's what the rulers of other European countries were doing. It was the second half of the 18th century that was the peak of these efforts to create united nations. And the Order of the Jesuits participated and made a significant contribution. For example, the very understanding of Eastern Europe was shaped by the Jesuits. I shall mention only one surname of Serb Boskovich who was the Jesuit and actually it has generated concept "east Europe" in its Slavic sense. And in grinding of Slavic languages the other Jesuit Czech Joseph Dobr

I thought i'd upload this video here as YT seems to think someone reading from old newspapers is "hate speech", interesting isn't it?

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it" - Attributed by most people to Joseph Goebbels

Although according to the Institute For Historical Review (http://ihr.org/other/weber2011fakequotations.html) the above quote was not said by Goebbels:

"Goebbels' views were quite different than what this fraudulent quote suggests. He consistently held that propaganda should be accurate and truthful. In an address given in September 1934 in Nuremberg, he said: "Good propaganda does not need to lie, indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the truth. It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can. It is only a matter of presenting the truth to people in a way that they will be able to understand. A propaganda that lies proves that it has a bad cause. It cannot be successful in the long run."

Galileo had it coming





The Renaissance Mathematicus considers the importance that #Galileo's famously controversial work, Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo, actually played in the development of modern #astronomy:
What role did the #Dialogo actually play in the ongoing cosmological/astronomical debate in the seventeenth century? The real answer is, given its reputation, surprisingly little. In reality Galileo was totally out of step with the actual debate that was taking place around 1630. Driven by…

Biding their Time - #Decolonisation (1/3)

The #history of decolonisation from the viewpoint of colonised peoples. A story that still resonates and reverberates to this day. This first episode shows how the battle for independence and freedom from colonial masters began in the 19th century. From India to Kenya, the Congo to German South West Africa, the Rif to Brunei, the European powers committed atrocities and oppressed peoples fought back.

NOAA's "improved" historical temperature measurements
Pulished: 12.12.2018

I don’t know how much people is believed in what is happening in Katowice. I just watched a great video by Tomasz Wroblewski on this subject. The commentators raised the question of what evidence Tomasz has against "global warming". There is a lot of evidence, but Tomasz looked at this topic from a psychological point of view, correctly comparing it with the new religion.

So anybody who looking for evidence will find it on the Internet.

Here I can mention perhaps the most important thing I encountered when I started studying this phenomenon back in the 1990s. I started by researching sources. There is an organization such as The Global Historical Climatology Network, which began collecting global climate statistics more than 20 years ago. I downloaded several data of thousand weather stations from this portal. The second version of the data appeared in 1997, the third version in 20

#History of dance music

High Energy - Disco on Amphetamines

At the end of the 1970s Disco was dead, deemed too mainstream and overexploited. But DJs and dancefloors still needed records and so the High Energy style was born. With its faster rhythms and stripped-back synthesiser sound, High Energy took gay clubs by storm before taking over the charts in the 1980s. The story of an international musical genre coming from San Francisco, London, Montreal and Munich.

How William #Gibson Keeps His #ScienceFiction Real


Source: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/12/16/how-william-gibson-keeps-his-science-fiction-real
Gibson first used the word “cyberspace” in 1981, in a short #story called “Burning Chrome.” He worked out the idea more fully in his first novel, “Neuromancer,” published in 1984, when he was thirty-six. Set in the mid-twenty-first century, “Neuromancer” follows a heist that unfolds partly in physical space and partly in “the matrix”—an #online realm.

Classics for the People

A Classical education was never just for the elite, but was a precious and inspiring part of working-class British life




The hero of Thomas Hardy’s tragic novel Jude the Obscure (1895) is a poor stonemason living in a Victorian village who is desperate to study Latin and Greek at university. He gazes, from the top of a ladder leaning against a rural barn, on the spires of the University of Christminster (a fictional substitute for Oxford). The spires, vanes and domes ‘like the topaz gleamed’ in the distance. The lustrous topaz shares its golden colour with the stone used to build Oxbridge colleges, but it is also one of the hardest minerals in nature. Jude’s fragile psyche... Show more...
