re: History says Nationalism caused WWI but was it globalism? - crazy4lsu
[quote]They felt they could knock France out of the war before Russia fully mobilized and that such a war was inevitable within 10 to 15 years. In classic German pragmatism (coupled with their own sense of martial superiority), they concluded, "Well, we're going to have to fight this war sooner rath...

[quote]I would agree with this statement. I would also like to say the reason I bring it up is not that I have all the answers. I wanted to bring it to the board so that I could get the opinion of others.[/quote] Sorry if my tone was harsh. I just think that looking back and searching for what yo...

[quote]was globalism or the idea of a one nation state the underlying cause to why nations got caught up in entangling alliances? [/quote] Given that the idea of intertwined interests in every facet didn't develop until after the second world war, the answer is obviously no. Most of the alliance...

[quote]The United States didn't become a country until 1776.[/quote] Different situations. Germany and Italy were divided into smaller principalities for a very long time, in fact for periods of time longer than the US has been an actual nation. In 1861, at the time of Italian unification, only 2...

But they didn't share a culture. Italy became a nation in 1861 and Germany didn't become a nation until 1871. Even today you have wide disparities in languages in Italy and Germany, with Bavarian being almost a distinct language on its own, and the Italian language was only standardized in the 1840'...

[quote]Fact of the matter is, he's too slow to really make a difference as an international attacker. [/quote] Not if he's the facilitator behind the striker.

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: "Hey! We actually bought some dudes!" - crazy4lsu
Watching the game again and I just want to reiterate how terrible we are in both offensive and defensive positioning. I don't even see the point in playing attacking football as we do if we aren't going to give the players a framework to thrive. It's like we play decide to play a pick up game each g...
