            It was MENA centric from 3500 BC to 800 BC. Then it was Med centric until MENAS had another brief golden age. Then from the 15th century forward it was Eurocentric again.

                    This has to be the most massive cope in years. You can argue that there are others who had even more influence on world history, but to say he had "virtually no direct influence on world history" is quite possibly the silliest statement ever posted on this board.

                        According to nearly everyone on the left, virtually everyone who doesn’t agree with them subscribes to Hitlerism.

                        I agree with that guy, Hitler’s impact on history was entirely secondary. His war brought about the pre-eminence of the world’s first super-powers, through only indirect action.

                        You could say the same thing about Napoleon, though, yet the Durants titled their book The Age of Napoleon.

                        Nahhhhh, Napoleon’s institutions that he set up left a lasting impact on the continent. The legal and political systems that he set up lasted much longer than the empire and the man himself. Is it Sweden that still has their Bonapartist monarch? And all the nationalism that came out of the 19th century can be pretty directly traced to Napoleon, his soldiers and their approach to empire building.
                        How about the official end of the HRE? That’s a pretty classic move, the sale of Louisiana? I don’t know there are a lot of examples.

                        Then why are we talking about what person to name the 20th century after, since the decision hasn’t happened yet? It is too soon to tell. It might turn out that Gandhi was the most important figure of the 20th Century, or maybe Dean Acheson. We aren’t far enough removed from that century to say with any certainty.

                        Well you could say that we are too close to the 19th and 18th centuries yet. I think it was Zhou Enlai who said when asked what he thought of the French Revolution “Its a bit early to tell”.

                        I agree with Zhou. If you had asked an educated Roman in 110 AD who the most influential person of the previous century was, he would never in a million years have guessed that it was some uppity rabbi in Jerusalem who caused a stir for a few months and then got crucified.

                        You can’t. Napoleon is possibly the most influential figure in history. He spread the ideas of the French Revolution and Enlightenment, ended feudalism, and awakened nationalism.

                        He didn’t say famous and influential. He just said to name some people who subscribe to Hitlerism, and since the woke left describes anyone who isn’t on board with turning 9-year-old children into trannies with hormone blockers as "literally Hitler", then all the people I named and millions more definitely subscribe to Hitlerism.

                        Actual Hitlerists would be clandestine. Since anything connected with Hitler has been so demonized, no one would ever admit to it. But if you laid out the principles of National Socialism as defined by Hitler but omitted his name and the term "Nazi", you’d probably find quite a few people who would agree with almost all of it.

                        Okay so we don’t actually have any hitlerists we can go to is what you are saying? Incidentally I think that’s not really the case I’m sure we can find plenty of Neo-Nazis in the world, they just aren’t that influential and never have been really.
                        And as far as Hitler’s principles I’m not sure you would be able to define them since so often they were subjective.

      1901-1945: British era.
      1945-1968: Soviet era (progress stagnated and unity dissolved after this, last nail in the coffin was 1991).
      1991- 2001: American era.

          The USSR was a shithole that couldn’t recover from the 70s oil shock/Afghanistan and never returned to the relative stability of the 60s. The United States had always been more prosperous but it wasn’t until the dissolution that they became the sole hegemon of the world. Nobody could challenge them but it seems like America is the sick old man of the West 30 years. later

            Sounds kinda like the USA, too. Our golden age started to end in the early ’70s and with our recent humiliation in Afghanistan, we are definitely on the downslope.

        The Soviet Era and the American Era overlapped. American Era was ’45 to ’21.

          That’s just the ongoing Cold War. You could say the USSR was at their height in the early 60s. The US basically owned the world for 20 years after communism failed.

        I’m going to say the British era was already over before WW1 even ended, especially since the war moved so much British capital from London to New York. Whenever Kitchener died I think would be a good end date.

          The British Empire officially enfed when they lost India but the situation was irreversibly dire by then and they were in no financial position to maintain a colony.

            Well I always heard the official end date as the giving Hong Kong to the Chinese government.
            It’s a long slow process with no fixed day, I was think more of the ‘era’ than the actual empire itself.

              The ‘era’ of the British in the sense that they would no longer effectively project strength onto another major powere would be between WWII and losing India. Asian colonial belongings were going to end up in American hands anway due to their geopolitical value.

              Everyone was scared shitless of the commies in the late 50s-60s so I call that their ‘era’ plus the early success with the space race.

              1991-2001 was when America could go around flexing military and economic dominance before becoming a paranoid corrupt surveillance state that sinks trillions into unwinnable wars with no clear objective.

                That was the case before 2001, and even before 1991.

                  The "no clear objective" was deliberate, because if the real reason for the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq had been made clear to the American people, they would not have supported it.

                    Of course. American warmongering politicians KNOW what they’re doing. My point was that this is a bad habit prevalent in countries experiencing decline.

                        >A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm (commonly known as the "Clean Break" report) is a policy document that was prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Richard Perle for Benjamin Netanyahu, the then Prime Minister of Israel.[1] The report explained a new approach to solving Israel’s security problems in the Middle East with an emphasis on "Western values." It has since been criticized for advocating an aggressive new policy including the removal of Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and the containment of Syria by engaging in proxy warfare and highlighting its possession of "weapons of mass destruction". Certain parts of the policies set forth in the paper were rejected by Netanyahu.

When the established agencies came up with nothing concrete to link Iraq and al-Qaida, the OSP was given the task of looking more carefully.

                        >"None of the Israelis who came were cleared into the Pentagon through normal channels," said one source familiar with the visits. Instead, they were waved in on Mr Feith’s authority without having to fill in the usual forms.

Intelligence sources say that the story came from the office of the Israeli prime minister.

                  Yes but things like this are rooted in society decades before they come into law. It wasn’t until the late 90s/2000s that things like the PATRIOT Act kickstarted a series of NSA-backed surveillance and privacy laws. Then WikiLeaks happened and the glowscrotes started glowing even harder on damage control (early 2010s).

                Right, I got that this is your opinion, I’m saying the British era is already over, they had already been replaced as the most powerful nation even during WW1 and were playing a distant third place be the end of WW2

              He probably has assistants and interns to read and then summarize them for him. Still, that’s his method and people continue to be astonished at how he’s almost always proven right, eventually.

        I propose we find the most perfectly ordinary, perfectly representative person and make him or her the avatar of the age. If after extensive research we discover that a man named Albert Putterman is the perfectly average, representative man of the 20th century, we call the 20th century The Age of Albert Putterman or The Putterman Era.
