Revolutions of 1848: Crash Course European History #26

Revolutions of 1848: Crash Course European History #26

Hi I’m John Green and this is Crash Course European History.

Climate Change Is a Socialist Trojan Horse

Climate Change Is a Socialist Trojan Horse

In Reading East, we need to get rid of Matt Rodda because he thinks that we’re on the path to destruction with climate change and replace him with Craig Morley. He thinks that climate change is a socialist trojan horse. So the sooner we get with that, the better, then we can abandon all these European regulations about clean air and climate change. I don’t need advice from European bureaucrats telling me what to drive and where I can drive….

The story of the Paris Commune (1871)

The story of the Paris Commune (1871)

In 1871 for a few months during the summer there was something unusual going on in Paris. A completely functional democratic commune was formed by the working people and they brought reforms that could still be considered revolutionary today. Anarchists, Marxists and other socialists worked together on this project which was supposed to be the beginning of a worldwide workers revolution. But let’s take a step back and see how we got there. As I am sure you are well…

Stagnate Europe and Pioneering Cultures — Looking ever forward for some

Stagnate Europe and Pioneering Cultures. Have you ever done social science research (or in any other field for that matter) and realized that all of the sources are American or funded by the Americans? If you pay attention to the sources and time periods, this is not difficult to realize because it is right in front of your face? When I was conducting European related research in the 1980s, I had no choice but to rely on American data sets…

WW2 – OverSimplified (Part 1)

WW2 – OverSimplified (Part 1)

This video was made possible by Skillshare. Churchill was a man with many talents. He was an artist, a butterfly enthusiast, and he had an unpublished manuscript about aliens.

An online learning community, with more than 19,000 classes in design, business, technology and more. Perhaps he was considering a side-career in fashion. But didn’t know where…
