            I want to delve into our historical understanding of "the" "Holo"-"caust" as a form of (con)structed (knowl)edge as a way of decentering Europe historically.

              I kinda get the point, but you if you really believe the guys that say the pyramids were built by aliens and the egyptologists that explain how they were built woke af on archaeological evidence have the same legitimacy, you’re scrotebrained and didn’t learn anything.

              True.
              I’m not a westerner(and not a muslim in view of what I’m about to say) so I always found it odd how religiously westerners defend their basic beliefs about for example the 2nd world war, despite its criticality to the current world order meaning it should be inspected far more critically than the history of 15th century Malaya or something. If you scrotes genuinely cared about the truth, there would be serious literature critically examining holocaust and its supporting facts. Respected historians all sound like banana republic propagandists on one of the genesis events of the modern world order, that saps a lot of my respect for them.

          You should read Anatoly Fomenkos work where points out western astrological records don’t match up to when they should have actually of happened. He also noted Chinese had much better records of their astrological events.

          He concludes we’ve either accidently added time to western history or purposefully done so. Similar to how Isaac Newton thought we added extra time to history as well.

          not him but there’s plenty of examples of people like Dorothy Ko who basically kickstarted a lot of revisionist thinking on a subject even if some of their theories were just stupid in hindsight (Ko goes waaaaay too far in trying to push back against the "Pre Modern Chinese Women were oppressed with no agency" argument for example)
          either the revisionists win the argument or they force the other academics to actually shore up their arguments to an acceptable state

          >he lied, which caused people to waste time following up his lies and correcting him, but expanded our budget to leech further off the public

          >but expanded our budget to leech further off the public
          history departments don’t get that much funding no matter what controversies happen, my uni has refused to put aside enough money to hire a Japanese history teacher after the last one retired a decade ago so the two Japanese culture professors wind up teacher quite a bit of history in their courses to semi compensate.

      I majored in history and wanted to pursue academia but ended up selling out and went to law school. I joined the machine. My soul is destroyed and I feel nothing but the pulsating vibrations of international capitalism. When I work for multi nation corporations to pay off my student debt I will emerge on the other side as a disciple of disciple of moloch. No more a human only a organic tool if civilizational domination.

      Reading Carroll Quigley and Kevin MacDonald, then seeing how all these false flags and fabricated events are being used to push a hidden agenda, has made me see academic history and political science as the equivalent of fiddling while Rome burns. There is so much skullduggery and corruption just below the surface, that abstract models of how these rotten systems are SUPPOSED to work just make me laugh a bitter, cynical laugh. We are told we live in a democratic republic when anyone with more than two brain cells in his skull knows that we live under a plutocratic oligarchy. Even Princeton University, in one of the extremely rare occurrences of honesty in academia, admitted this obvious fact in 2014.

      you are now ready to realize all views off life and history are narratives created by political factions, be it BLM, LGBTQ, alt right, Neocons, liberals, socialists, communists, etc.

      you can do 2 things now: take the nihilist pill and accept that nothing is really true, accept that living as a chud, furry, etc. are lifestyles as any other. live and let live.

      Or you can take the god pill and realize that since every modern narrative is fake and artificial, that truth and good morals can only come from gods law.

      This is part of why I’m pursuing my graduate degree in linguistics. Sure, it’s a bunch of theories put together, but it is much less politically charged, has an element of scientific inquiry about it, you can learn a lot about it in textbooks and papers from libgen and scihub, and it’s about the underlying structures of word and sound units, which is pretty damned neat when you get into it. Not to mention that it can have important historical applications, and tbqh, since uts not exactly a money-making machine, no one gives a shit enough about the study in general to really pozz it per se.

      I’m not saying there is no objective truth, I’m saying it doesn’t matter in the zeitgeist, and will matter less as society becomes less white.
      If people want to believe We Wuz Kangz (and they all do) then fuck it. That’s just as legitimate. And I’m sure they are unironically teaching Afrocentrism somewhere

      here is the truth, outside of looking at history for advice on sold topics with actual concrete answers like economics and war it really doesn’t matter what actually happened.
      History will just be interpreted and reinterpreted as needed to support, dismantle or create cultural pseudo-historical myths

      The same event will be twisted, interpreted and "rediscovered" into totally different forms depending on the culture and time period. Just look at the finding fathers and their slow descent from near deification, then flawed but honorable revolutionaries, now many a bordering on the edge of person non grata.
