But it was primarily about the slaves, "the lost cause" narrative was made up later. If we put ethical arguments aside, USA would be Latin America tier if south won the war and agrarian's interests prevailed over industry.

Normal feelings, it will get better over the next few weeks even if that feels impossible right now. Do whatever, learn from mistakes, a lot of people are able to help you if you open up to them about your problems. It's good that you've tried to connect with other people! You seem to be doing better than I was in that situation (ie. sulk and draw away from everyone).

I've learned to appreciate that my brain can be an asshole to itself, and now my past is filled with hilarious moments rather than shame.

This thread is dedicated to discussions and findings about the present, future and history of (digital) media and technology. They can concern culture, society, politics and philosophy. I know we have a science thread and a computer thread, but this thread is decicated to the humanities side of the issue, though this thread should not exclude (computer) science.

I will make my updates here regulary I hope, so this is a personal thread which should accompany my personal studies, but you are invited to post here as well. I will mainly review articles or books, perhaps post personal experience we often discussed imageboards here, which can boil down board culture, but also social composition, so that would be a topic, but also hope to link thoughts together in the future.

More or less: What are the consequences of a digital age in various domains, where are we heading and where do we/it came from?

The thread could contain questions like:

[*]What is the digital, what does this notion imply?
[*]What is media?
[*]The dawning of the notion of networks

>An interesting derivation I can think of: 法王 means pope in Japanese, but king of France in Chinese, which could possibly lead to confusion in some contexts.
Addendum: In Japanese king of France can be denoted by 仏王, which would be a Buddhist religious title in Chinese. So it's like a nice dual to 法王.

I think the Sanskrit/Buddhist equivalent to 法王 is dharmaraja and it's a title awarded to any ruler who contributed significantly to the spread of "the teachings", like the first kings of Tibet who are remembered as "Kings of the Teaching".
Though I've seen 法王 refer to the head of the Catholic church/High ranking priest at least once in the 皇清職貢圖 where it depicts Jesuits from Macau (大西洋國夷僧) and talks about the dual-authority in the west using mostly Buddhist terms.

>其法王削髪, 留鬚,帶青斗帽, 衣緇衣。
>Their religious leaders [lit. King(s) of Law] cut their hair, keep their beard, wear blue/green caps and black clothes.

Tho this is more like a domestication like how originally they translated Buddhist texts using Daoist terminology. (Since apparently this also seems to mean the original Buddha too.)
It kinda feels like with Chinese terminology anything goes sometimes simply because of the size of the corpus.

Yeah, calques like this abound in Buddhist literature. Phonetic transcriptions are rare just as in modern Chinese. Speaking of Tibetan, the handful of Tibetan Buddhism terminology I know, none of them are directly loaned from Sanskrit/Pali too, e.g. sangs-rgyas for Buddha. Modern borrowings are no less strict in linguistic purism: even 微信 is skad-'phrin (speech-message). So Chinese is not alone in this Icelandic-tier autism among its neighbours. But I wonder, is the Tibetan norm of translation influenced by Chinese (Bodchenpo by Tang and 藏区 under Qing and PRC), or is it due to some common bottom structures of Sino-Tibetan languages.
I was thinking about modern usage, but you're right, the meaning of 法王 has long been generalized to any religion as that of 法. Hui community call Islamic law 教法, though I'm not sure how long this has been established. (After googling, it's canonized as 礼法 around Ming-Qing.) And I agree with you on the (un)fortunately lengthy tradition of domestication and copious corpus of literature, thanks to which I think I can come up with infinitely many examples of such layered meanings. 凤凰 has semantically incorporated phoenix because of Guo Moruo's approporation. 龙 can signify any of the following: Chinese mythological creature as in 《易》, Indian naga in Buddhist texts, and European dragon. (I remember, western dragon has the same PIE origin with naga, only diverged and formed the winged-lizard image in the middle ages. But isn't the coat of arms of the Visconti of Milan a serpent-dragon? idk) I'll stop here.

At the weekend I had my first encounter with proper Chinese culture - picking up packs of paracetamol and ibuprofen to send to gfs family in China. As you're limited to two packs per customer here (to stop people from killing themselves over a headache) this involved subterfuge at my local supermarkets, although I'm not sure anyone gives a fug so long as you only buy two packs for each transaction. I pretended to be hungover and am now stocked up on bacon, plus I got dinner bought for me for being a good boy.

Not sure how I feel about all this given there's a mild flu epidemic here - much piss-taking was made.

Her parents are scared and she's showing them over video how nobody cares here, but obviously it's very different in China that is only just coming out of lockdown. I suspect the whole authoritarianism thing makes it so much worse because everyone is terrified of the CCP which has made a new assessment they've no say in - even if they were angry about lockdown restrictions. The great 2020 social experiment continues I guess.

Have you noticed the die-off Ernst?

So many people I know are becoming seriously ill lately, a few have also dropped dead.

My 23 year old nephew developed severe epilepsy after getting vaxxed because they took his rights away until he was vaxxed and boosted. My neighbour's niece who is 8 years old now has leukemia after getting the vaxx. My coworker collapsed after getting his booster and spent the last 10 weeks in hospital. My other coworker's father dropped dead after getting his booster .... the list goes on and on

My facebook feed is full of obituaries to people in the locality dropping dead, or famous musicians, football players, local celebs etc. just dropping dead

I've never seen such a wave of illness in my life and I've been around 40 years. The die-off has begun I think

It was neither the vaccine nor genetic, this particular household had been eating nothing but marzipan for good part of the year - with predictable results. Germans don't want us discussing this, so they'll continue to throw red herrings lest Big Marzipan takes a quarterly profit loss.

Niederegger is a descendant of the Hansa, the town of Lübeck, where this Marzipan giant is located, is a former Hansa town. The Niederegger cast their net over the german population like the Hanse did in the past. Wir are under control of a merchant elite, Big Marzipan, as you said. Responsible for millions of cases of Christmas Aedipositas, poisoning and weakening the German population with their products.

>LLNL’s experiment surpassed the fusion threshold by delivering 2.05 megajoules (MJ) of energy to the target, resulting in 3.15 MJ of fusion energy output, demonstrating for the first time a most fundamental science basis for inertial fusion energy (IFE). Many advanced science and technology developments are still needed to achieve simple, affordable IFE to power homes and businesses, and DOE is currently restarting a broad-based, coordinated IFE program in the United States. Combined with private-sector investment, there is a lot of momentum to drive rapid progress toward fusion commercialization.

>Achieving ignition was made possible by dedication from LLNL employees as well as countless collaborators at DOE’s Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories and Nevada National Security Site; General Atomics; academic institutions, including the University of Rochester’s Laboratory for Laser Energetics, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California, Berkeley, and Princeton University; international partners, including the United Kingdom’s Atomic Weapons Establishment and the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission; and stakeholders at DOE and NNSA and in Congress.
