i think the territory you mean becam polish after ww2 and was not polish ever before.
someone correct me if i'm wrong
#84 - thesecretbear (14 hours ago) [-]
But that raises the question of what determines who deserves what land. Many people living in the Prussian region of modern day poland at that time were majority german, who had migrated there during the baltic crusades and later on. Many of them had been living their for hundreds of years.
If you want we could equate it to the whole Isreal Palestine issue, but it really determines on whether you think land goes to the one who holds it, or the one who lives there, but either way Prussian land was German land by either of those standards, so what standard is it you go by?
#74 - John Cena (15 hours ago) [-]
"Polish ground" What a stupid comment. East Prussia, Danzig and the Danzig corridor, and Silesia were all German lands filled with ethnic Germans. After the Germans lost ww1 and ww2 Poland forcibly deported/killed off ethnic Germans and replaced them with their own. Don't fucking bullshit that those were Polish lands. England, France, and US has been carrying Poland for the last 100 years. Poland is a massive noob, I'd report it's ass for using US hacks. Going up against Mega-boss Germany with horses and spears in 20th century fucking noobs. Get carried scrub lords.

no, that makes me an imperialist. and yes, most imperialists are capitalist assholes. And guess what? the world is ran by capitalist scums, and we consume food produced, harvested, transported, and cooked by capitalist scums. You are eating, drinking, breathing, sleeping, using literal shit.

i) some cases of personal unions: Napoléon's conquests comes to mind, whereas the emperor brought improvements of infrastructure to the whole of western, southern, and central Europe (with assets such as the Code Napoléon, a more efficient schooling system, and the European street address system).
And, ii) conquest establishing infrastructure. The prime examples are the Chinese unification Qin Shi Huang'di, who created standardized roads and currency; Greek settling the Mediterranean, and the Roman conquests. Both of which formed the basis of southern Europe's culture, and more importantly, infrastructure.
There is a red line here, improving infrastructure. Now, there are ofcourse problems with this "spreading civilization"-way of thinking.
What is separating this from e.g. the colonization of Africa? Social Darwinism for one. Believing that x race is better than y race is plain dumb, and will eventually lead to revolts and racism. It's simply not a good reason to perform imperialism.
Yet another example, is the annexation of Poland. It was annexed due to the lack of power centralization, as well as weak and inefficient rule - as I see it, the Polish were better of annexed. per then, of course. Today, they are more than stable enough to be an independent country

I agree that in many instances imperialism has had positive changes, but those examples are few and far in between. More often imperialism is explicitly destructive. It may not seem so when you read a history textbook, but consider that those empires which engage in great projects of development are more likely both to be written about by others and to write about themselves. All one needs to do to see the destructiveness of most empires is look to the steppes of central Asia which have been conquered thousands of times, but seldom ruled with any level of competence.
A peaceful nation is likely to value prosperity as well, wouldn't you say so? It's hard to imagine a nation with no territorial ambitions also being content with allowing their nation to remain in poverty. People have drives and ambitions, all of that has to go somewhere. I feel that by spreading peaceful, non-imperialist values, the same things can be achieved that all the great empires did, but without the negative effects of their destructive counterparts.
#91 - luminisenc (12 hours ago) [-]
I agree; indeed, imperialism is almost never mutually beneficial. It might bring new technologies, new culture - but it also brings conflict.
My point was that there are exceptions. And perhaps the Qin dynasty didn't last too long, but it set the base for a Chinese Han aristocracy - well, no need to cavil.
Peaceful nations have a tendency to value prosperity, peace. Sadly, not all nations have the conditions to live peacefully - perhaps in lack of arable lands and food, they are forced to fight for it, lest perish. This is a sorry source of conflict.
It is only in recent times, the vision of a peaceful world has become a possibility.

Because I want your shit and you aren't strong enough to keep it.

Even chimpanzees make war, do you honestly think there was no imperialism among prehistoric man? Imperialism has been a constant companion to humanity since the beginning, and as such there is no way to determine whether or not it created innovation without first abandoning it.

OR. They don't actually drink or eat anything on set because if they have to take many shots for that scene the actor/actress would get full. I'm not saying this scene isn't improvised or scripted, I couldn't careless because there's no evidence either way.
