bolitics serios discussion – edició català

Catalans have been acting pretty edgily lately. (note the correct usage of adverb there, and not the adjective) Their parliament apparently wants to illegally hold a binding referendum on independence, which is against the Spanish constitution.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan_independence_referendum,_2017

Let's see what the Russian proofsters report on that.

Art Thread

I am not an expert on art. /disclaimer

Part of one of my high school spanish classes dealt mainly with learning about various "spanish" artists in spanish. The first of which was El Greco was probably my favorite. What led me to re-visit this subject was a hand symbol in one his portraits that pops up in a couple other of his paintings and what it's meaning is. My teacher explained it as being a secret sign christians used during their persecution, but that didn't make too much sense to me for a variety of reasons, and it seems to be a mystery still.

http://www.darkfiber.com/pz/chapter1.html
This site seems to go quite in detail into the matter.
His most notable peculiarity in painting was when depicting religious scenes or figures they'd be normally quite elongated and sometimes downright unnatural looking which drew the ire of some at the time but his natural scenes were depicted in a natural and realistic manner.
Included are a couple of triptychs:
>A work, such as an altarpiece, consisting of three painted or carved panels that are hinged together.
These are attributed to him and are circa 1568. They lack the elongated figures of a lot of his works but pre-date a alot of the ones I found with such features by about 10 years, so they may in fact be his after all, like I said I'm no expert.

I came to find out looking further into it that he, and probably other artists as well, who would paint or sculpt for churches were usually involved in much more than just doing some paintings or frescoes. He did a lot of wooden sculpting and created altars and other decorations for various churches reportedly, but they were wood and none of them apparently survived. Wikipedia says there is a sculpture but I couldn't find a picture of it.

R: 57 / I: 49 / P: 1

Let's have an informative thread about each country's electoral geography and how it ties to demography, regionalism and so on.

Brazil's sharp blue state/purple state/red state divide, which only emerged from 2006 onwards, has been talked about a lot; Geocurrents had two excellent articles about it. I won't talk about the basics, as they're already covered well enough. But Martin W. Lewis has missed some things.

First of all, party loyalties at the state level do make a difference. This factor isn't as strong as it used to be in the Old/Oligarchic Republic period (1889-1930), when the entire national political process was centered on state-level loyalties, but is still felt in some states.
Rio Grande do Sul's leftist past mentioned in his article is a legacy of the state's social democratic loyalties. As they leaned towards a different, non Workers Party string of social democracy (see Leonel Brizola, the leftist who famously called Lula a "bearded frog") that has been defeated and cucked by the PT, their support for Lula gradually faded away.
São Paulo is an even better example: the entire state is radically anti-PT and anti-leftist, and has had fought to install its distinct political views on the federal government for over a century, to the point of fighting a civil war in 1932 when it was evicted from a decade-long liberal hegemony.

Another important point is that the hinterland has some distinct electoral factors absent from the densely populated coastal states the northernmost two still count as hinterland; Lewis shrugs off Roraima as an irrelevant case, but it expresses the same factors he covered about Mato Grosso.

What the hinterland states have in common is that their vast swathes of desolate savanna and jungle have experienced continuous waves of settlement and economic development since the last century. Thus, they have three dynamics that impact their voting:
>Highly profitable agricultural frontier areas versus poor traditional communities
>Expanding ethnic Brazilian settlement versus native communities and their reserve areas, with leftist governments backing the natives;
>Land reform, local political machines controlled by the rural upper class, peasant-landowner class conflict, far-left movements that claim to represent the landless invading and damaging property everywhere and so on

I know some of this personally, as I have an uncle who moved a couple decades ago to become a landowner in the hinterland; whenever he visits us, he complains about gun control and ignorant gringos/southeeasterners who know nothing about his situation, but constantly shill for environmentalism, natives, land reform and so on.

These factors explain why many states in the West and North -including 20% white Roraima- have consistently voted for the Right in past elections.

Architecture

This board requires diversity of threads, so let's talk about architecture.

I'd start with stealing some images from some blog and post them there, because I can. This is photos of Soviet projects of 1920-1960s. Sometimes they look straight from Rome or WH40K, it is sad that they weren't implemented (but some of them are pretty crazy though). Modern architecture is a mistake.

1 - project of House of Soviets in Leningrad, 1936
2 - Pantheon of war partisans, project, Moscow, 1942
3 - Victory column at Manezhnaya square in Moscow, 1947
4 - project of Museum of Patriotic War on Red Square, 1943.

It is interesting that they started to draw war projects when war wasn't over.

Chink Movies Thread ...

... or rather Movies General but we need to maintain traditions even if I didn't watch any of the chink movies with you guys.

Seen these two recently. Both felt mediocre at best.
The Villainess was better the first person action scene right at the beginning was something. It was novelty for me I know such movies are already exist outside porn but hadn't seen one before. Other than that it was meh.
The Blade of the Immortal was worse. The whole movie is dark (as in lack of lighting not mood) the action scenes were obscure by that just as with the close up shots. Those hairstyles, glasses and weapons are annoying. The story is boring and that curing bloodworms theme feel out of the place.

When Polebernd looked for the Shaolin Soccer I dl'd that one too. Since then it rests on my hdd. I took a peek here and there and it looked really ridiculous so probably I'll find some time to watch that too.

Role Playing Games

I want to begin a new series about a Hungarian pen and paper role playing game I've already mentioned in other thread(s). It's called M.A.G.U.S. - Kalandorok Krónikái (Chronicles of Adventurers) and I wish to guide you through it's history, world and maybe even rules. Frankly I'm not well prepared and most likely not the best person for the job, but, well, I'm the only one here and this is the best it's gonna get.
IRL talking with a real M.A.G.U.S. fan about M.A.G.U.S. is a real herculean challange as they can be extremely assburgerish about insignificant details, they can cite some careless comment from an obscure magazine's unknown article anytime and consider it rock solid canon they can base their opinion. It's worse to play it with an experienced fanatic as they are capable arguing to the point of the knife with the Kalandmester or Mesélő (Adventure Master or Tale Teller/Story-Teller, the DM, it's KM from no on) even if everyone knows the First Rule: the KM is always right.

Of course any other rpg can be discussed here, but I'd like to keep this thread for pnp or tabletop rpgs, crpgs should go into the Vidya thread.

Battles

I've already mentioned the book titled On Killing - The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society by Dave Grossman (Lt. Col. of US Army). It gave some food for thought and I'm planning to write some of my speculation.

But what did the author write? Let's summarize.
He starts with the observation that most men has a natural resistance to kill (only 2% of men - those who have "predisposition toward aggressive psychopathic personality" - can go on killing without becoming a nervous wreck). This resistance is so high that even at times that our life is directly threatened (like others shoot at us) still difficult to overcome it. This resistance is the reason why infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years - with the exception of machine guns - despite the fact that infantry weaponry (rifles) are reliable and accurate enough to cause massive losses among the enemy.
The author gives examples and sources, such as a Prussian experiment in the late 18th century, several reports and notices from several authors during 19-20th centuries (American, French, Israeli etc.), and an interesting work by a US Army historian who (and his coworkers) made mass interviews with fighting GIs during and after WWII. Also he cites his own conversation with veterans of WWII and Vietnam.
He gives new ideas on what's really happening on the battlefield. He compliments the widely known fight-or-flight model with two other options: in reality the soldiers can fight, posture, submit or flight. And most soldiers choose the second option.
Then he ponders on what enables killing (I'm gonna write more about this later) and how modern (post-WWII) armies achieve this. Then he compares these methods with the ways of contemporary mass media. His conlcusion is (after pointing out the exponential rise of violent crimes) that mass media has an undesirable effect on society.

What interesting for me is this resistance, and the enabling part. These things are actually give an entirely new way of looking warfare, and how and why battles were won.
For example the part officers (the demanding authority to kill) play in the enabling. When people (professional historians, history pros and other armchair generals) comparing the Hellenic phalanx with Roman manipulus and why the latter was more successful they compare everything but the officers. In the phalanx he's only one among those who stand in line and do the poking with pikes, but a Roman officer is one outside the formation and pressuring the soldiers to kill. It makes a huge difference if someone shouting in your ears "stab! stab! stab!" and generally pressuring you to kill. Especially if this one person is an exemplary one, a veteran whose skill in killing surpasses all the others in that particular unit. However noone talks about this because noone thinks about it.

I'll continue this sometimes, maybe only next weekend, we'll see. If you wish to read the book you can probably find it on libgen.

the arbitral tribunal finally announced rulings regarding border disputes between slovenia and croatia. however, croatia claims they will ignore those rulings because they don't see them as legitimate ever since a year ago when some phone calls between one of the members of the tribunal and some irrelevant slovenian official were leaked. however the arbitration was accepted as part of ultimatum to croatia regarding eu membership.

http://www.24ur.com/novice/slovenija/po-vec-letih-prerekanja-danes-le-nastopil-dan-d-bo-slovenija-dobila-stik-z-odprtim-morjem.html

besides the sea border dispute, most land border disputes were results of anomalies where one republic or a municipality governed land that was nominally on the other side of the republic border.

see pictures in article. it was ruled out that:
1) gulf of piran belongs to slovenia (except for a narrow strip next to croatian coast, as opposed to border going along the centreline) and the sea border continues straight out to italian waters; slovenia doesn't get a direct contact with international waters but instead a 4.6km wide corridor is assigned inside croatian waters that slovenia gets full access to
2) land border follows the dragoña river; this means that a couple of houses (most notably, joško joras, who wrote "here is slovenia too" on his house in 2002 and had some publicised breakouts with border officials) and fields, altogether 113ha that were part of slovene municipalities and were infrastructurally connected to slovenia, stay on croatian side
3) 70ha of forest on snežnik plateau forests that were part of hungary before ww1 but was anomalously reassigned to slovenia during treaty of rapallo for no reason whatsoever, remain part of slovenia
4) 335ha large piece of clay around village of drage (northern bela krajina, foothills of gorjanci), mostly forests, that was anomalously part of croatian cadadstres goes to croatia. this is right next to the worst example of bordergore on slovene border, however the ruling does nothing to resolve that. such cases.
5) the army objects on trdina peak (in gorjanci) that were seized by slovene forces during independence war get split following the internal republic borders along the ridge within yugoslavia; the radio tower is therefore on slovenian side while the barracks on croatian
6) the border along mura river follows its old riverbet from the 19th century and not the modern-day regulated course (leaving a larger part of land on croatian side)

croatia is expected to send army on its borders and slovenia is expected to go crazy on border control to prevent tourists from reaching croatia until croatia gives a statement regarding agreeing with the outcome

Left-right dichotomy and the final explanation on how anglomericans are wrong about everything

I'm opening with my inconclusive piece in an attempt to make my point clear, but it's not the best text there is and some error may come up in terminology.

The American ideological right is there to ask the question "you're not seriously suggesting a government could ACTUALLY enforce the will of the people?" of both socialists and communists, because they count any government as a tyranny and any government that isn't adversarial to its people as an unaccountable tyranny. So their position becomes to co-opt a hateful government and minimize its effects, while they hand off power to private businesses who get to make autocratic decisions on behalf of their employees on a take-it-or-leave-it basis but that's white-washed as perfectly accountable. It's no different than supporting an infinite amount of micronations that all function like socialist dystopias, but politically the right gets to wash its hands and think it doesn't concern them because it happens in the "private" sector. And what is a government? The one micronation that you HAVE to join with the leftover life you have from your nine-to-five, so that 24/7 is covered. Conversely, the left embraces the authoritarian view of politics because it grants rank leftists their own free pass at saying that the real authoritarians are all in the government, not among the people. All it is is an attempt to end political participation altogether, and that's why we have the "centrists" running around saying "you don't have to choose between [my devil the beelzebub] and [my baphomet the satan]", which currenlty boils down to demonized hitler and stalin. What happens is that the right is on the constant slide towards the bottom of the horseshoe, and both political parties are floating to the top as representatives of entirely authoritarian goals. This happens because right-wing ideologues have a poorly constructed idea about how to legislate their utopian liberalism, it itself stemming from the fact that they don't know or care much about what made the European left-right division at all descriptive and useful, so we get this opinionated landscape of what is "real" right and left based on a mess of short-term policies and long-term end results as malice and incompetence are attributed arbitrarily.

Hungarian Revolution and War of Independence of 1956

National holiday, no work today only for bus drivers and such.
This revolution and war of independence is called "of 1956" because it's the 1956th such happening in the last 500 years.
I might write something later. Why not.

>1st pic
Mátyás Rákosi, the leader of the communist Hungary between 1949 and 1956, Stalinist dictator. The revolution deposed him and co. sadly they didn't hang around they lived their lives in the CCCP happily ever after.
>2nd pic

>3rd pic
Hungarian flag freed of the burden of the communist emblem.
>4th pic
Imre Nagy, leader of the revolutionary Hungary. Communist, in 1953 appointed as a PM by the soviet overlords but shunned later as he started certain processes which led people to believe they could think more freely now. He was even forced out of the Party in '55. He kinda was the only one who had a chance to be accepted by the SU so he came to be the head of the revolution.

The 13 Martyrs of Arad

Its 6th October the commemoration day of the 13 Martyrs of Arad. It's not a national holiday but schools for example usually do some form remembrance.
On this day in 1849 twelve general and one colonel of the Hungarian Defense Force was executed as part of the retaliation of the Habsburg Court after the 1848-49 war of independence. On the same day suffered martyrdom at Pest the prime minister of the first responsible government, Count Batthyány Lajos too.

To go on in larger extent what went down during the revolution and the following war would be long and wouldn't really fit for the subject so I'll write little this and little that.

My warm weather hobo tips

My protips: wear polyester undershirt, undies, longjohns and polyester dress pnts, leather jacket or polyester windbreaker or blazer, get the Summerweight Ozark trail 40 degree bag from Walmart or other similar supermicro bag, and a messenger bag to put that and your laptop in. Get some dress shoes with a walking sole. Get polyacrylic hiking socks. -homeless four years and counting. Thanks America!
Oh yeah and wear a white silk or polyester dress shirt. White cotton gets grimy instantly, silk looks great for months without washing

Also you can maybe try just buying a sleeping bag liner, for warmer months that will fit in your pocket. Switch from tablet to cheap tracphone android.

Another good investment would be a cheap roadbike, then plop 200$ to put tannus airless tires on it.

Time Travel

Intro
I wrote in the vidya thread about how I found Anno 1602 on PC mag's CD and that gave me an idea. I tried to look for my few CD's acquired the same way but I couldn't find mine however I found others I got some buddy of mine once. Actually he gave me a roll of 50 CD's, these are partly PC mag's appendices, partly pirated material, partly other stuff, like GNU/Linux distributions or Nero disks.
I found for example Baldur's Gate II pirated from somewhere also an original factory made Shadows of Amn expansion disk beside it. Pirated NHL 2002 but original Alone in the Dark 3. Nice. I went through all of these once long ago, I can see my scribbled notes on the CD's what works what not, but never took the time to use any of these. I'm not intend to. At least not now.

Right now the more interesting stuff is on the PC mag CDs. I'm gonna review one here with you, Bernd.
If you'd like please post your findings if you own such CD's or DVD's. I'm sure Bernd has some secretly in the corned of his basement.

#Убий кацапську матір, убий її дитину
За те що в інтернеті сміються без зупину
Над Українським болем - над Голодомором
За глум над нашим горем не йме кацапа сором
#Убий щоб не вродила свинособача піхва
Нових жидомонголів. Вже не накоять лиха.
Гниє кацапський ворог в степах у Приазов'ї
Добий його родину, гнилу в душі й назовні
#Убий, бо не спиняли тих вбивць, що ми скарали
Був на Майдані розстріл - вони лиш реготали
Лить сліз ніхто не буде, настав наш час відплати
Тож вбий свину дитину а потім її матір!

August 20, Birthday of Hungary

It's the 1017th birthday of the Christian Hungary, a national holiday. Last year I made a thread for the commemoration, today I'll keep it shorter but still.
Why August 20? Our first Christian king, Saint Stephen (reigned 1000-1038) was canonized this day in 1083 by Saint Ladislaus (reigned 1077-1095). This day was chosen as a representation of statehood as we aren't sure about the precise date of the coronation of Stephen.
Customary celebrations of the statehood are held all over the country, and in Budapest the Holy Right (a relic, mummified right hand of Saint Stephen) is carried around during a precession. Of course our leading politicians give speeches, usually some nonsense.

a/c

I usually turn off the a/c at work. Where I live and work it can drop down to 60-70 degrees often in the summer during the afternoons and evenings. The problem is my co-workers flip fucking shit when they figure it out.
I feel the air is unnecessary for the most part. It's loud as hell, and it blows papers around because it's up super high. We don't have any big equipment that heats up, we got rid of an old server that was the only thing I'd say that generated significant extraneous heat.
I feel like people freaking out over there not being air conditioning is just insane. You think they would die with the way they act. This old lady particularly freaks out but she also doesn't know how to work the thermostat. She says she can't read writing that small but I don't believe her.

I have now decided to post links to some bands that I think are vaguely in the same category.

That category is the 1980's pre-post-punk alternative rock and it's creative descendants that got developed further into more poppy direction in later years.
