You're still required to pay for illicit gains in the us tax code but rather than declaring it as an income there's a way to declare the income as "other". Had Capone paid taxes on his illicit gains he never would've ended up in prison

Iirc by the time this occurred Willhelm was little more than a figurehead. Ludendorf was calling the shots and his officers were the ones who got Lenin into Russia

I bought my house for $125,000 when it was valued at $150,000 from a family friend in 2020. It's now valued at $200,000. The housing market is beyond broken and I feel bad for anyone trying to buy a house oven the next several years.
Anyone got any ideas? 2 comments

This tipped the scales in a way that had never happened before. The jews being the majority did what the majority does in all nations. They make a state in their image. Muslims and Arab states didn't view this favorably as a lower class of people had now controlled what had been there's for 1000's of years. It was a region of major importance to their religion. This culminated in several wars and proxy wars throughout the Middle East and Africa into the modern day.

None of the above is a justification for anti Semitic ideology. It's a brief summation of what I've seen and read over the years in regards to the "Jewish question". Anti-Semitic people are awful. Imo the best way to combat hate is to confront it. The best way I know how is to provide nuance. From the things ive read this is how anti-Semitic "historians" and people's of yesteryears viewed jews.

This often where you get the pogroms and things of the like. This predominantly focused on europe as I'm more familiar with this side of the story. Jewish hatred in the middle east comes in more of a modern flair. During the Persian empire and subsequent empires throughout history jews would be tolerated. As with europe they would never be the majority. Jews would often be more permissible in court in middle eastern kingdoms. This would change from time to time and ruler to ruler but things would come to a head after ww1. The British imperial administration began seeing the potential of a Jewish state existing in the holy land favorably. Some of this being a good will gesture and some being part of the "rich jew" stereotype. A Jewish state that owed its existence to the British empire would be seen by jews in Britain as a godsend and would be more loyal to the empire. After ww2 this state became a reality. In doing so the brits helped move large numbers of jews into the holy land.

Jews also received large amounts of animosity due to the distinct difference between Christianity and Judaism. Christianity is largely a convert heavy religion. Those who aren't Christians are often pursued by Christians in order to co very them. Judaism is entirely different. Judaism is often very hostile in the ability to convert. This being said jews would always be a minority in whatever lands the occupied making it easier to use them as a boogeyman to farm resentment. The jews to many Christians throughout early Christianity and into the medieval era had very odd practices that would rub them the wrong way. For example during the black plague jews would, relatively, fair better than Christians. This has been attributed to the common practice of regular bathing that the jews practiced during that period. Due to the bathing and overall cleaner living conditions jews didn't catch the plague as often. This lead Christians to assume the jews had started it all.

With the accumulation of wealth comes power. Now this power comes with caveats. As during these times the divine right of kings was in full swing. Therefore the monarch could largely do as they pleased within reason. So long as the monarch didn't confiscate wealth or lands from his more powerful subjects they would be able to reign freely. Jews in many kingdoms weren't considered subjects but rather foreigners. Therefore these rules didn't apply to Jews. Monarchs could and often would confiscate land and wealth from Jewish people within their lands to supplement their holdings. In doing so the monarchs would often resort to scape goating in order to make the jews to be an enemy that needed to be eradicated as a means to confiscate their wealth. Jews with better connections at court could be left alone. This is where the "sneaky jew" concept arises from.

This is an oversimplification. Jews were often used as facilitators of wealth. Specifically in the banking world kings, lords or others with access to wealth would use Jews as a means to loan out money in a means to collect interest as during much or early Christian history the practice of interest collection was if not outlawed then heavily frowned upon. Deuteronomy 23:19-20 specifically denounces collection of interest amongst Israelites and by extension early Christians saw themselves as the new israelites.

I mean... lenin also denounced every potential soviet leader that had the ability to assume power before his death. There's a large historical debate whether the 2nd document Krupskaya brought forward denouncing Stalin, after Lenins death, was legitimately from Lenin as she and several other inner circle communists despised Stalin. The biggest contention I've read against its authenticity would be how lucid Lenin would've been in his final days. Especially considering how Lenin would initial or otherwise indicate on paper that the words written were his own while Krupskayas last papers were missing any form of signature from Lenin.

Not really no. Historically most decisions were made by older men who convinced younger men to do their bidding.

To tie this in better to the post I will lay out an example. In a family unit with parents and several children the interactions between parents will influence a child's view on relationships throughout their development. A father he sees the mother as nothing more than a fuck toy will leave that impression on their children. For the boys it will make women out to be nothing more than things to play with and not take seriously while for the girls it will teach them they are nothing more than a piece of meat. A mother who does nothing but berate and belittle a father for trying to have emotional connections with their children will instill the idea in daughters that men are meant to be cold and that they should be in charge of the emotional state of the family unit while it will instill an emotional stunting on the males and give them the impression emotions are women's things. A child brought up in either scenario will continue the cycle unless taught otherwise. This is generational.

My grandfather is a casual racist. He "permits" black and brown people to exist around him. He only uses racial slurs about the different races in regard to criminals of said race. He is leaps and bounds ahead of his father and grandfather who very much hated anyone other than whites. My father is a screaming racist and will often go on rants about racial issues in the US and about race mixing. My grandfather's approach to the subject left me leeway in growing up to interact with kids of other races as if my father had any say it wouldve only been white kids. Growing up in a town with 50% Hispanic population and being able to interact and learn from the opened my eyes to the fact that these weren't "mutts" or "mongrels" but people just like me who are just trying to live their lives. I learned a lot from my Hispanic friends growing up and it made me realize the racial rhetoric as well as sexist rhetoric comes almost entirely from education or lack thereof.

Shit take ngl. Educating someone in a way that shows their preconceived notions are incorrect is the only way to ensure future generations don't repeat the same mistake. Someone grown in a misogynistic setting will grow misogynistic and in turn perpetuate it without someone being there to show them the error in their ways. Education is by far the best tool to combat racism, misandry, misogyny, misanthropy, and even classism. I'll give an example below.
