    Spartan is also a way of life meaning no extras and no luxuries. Also the people who created the concept of cultural appropriation are sad bitter, sick in the head people that belong on an island untouched by the ravages of civilization. One of the most fucked pathetic ideas ever thought
    of imho.

    The entirety of western civilization is cultural appropiation of the ancient greeks.

    Most Greeks look closer to Arabs/Persians/N. Africans than they do to Central and Northern Europeans.

    This is a picture of people protesting in Athens

    Cultural appropriation is good.
     
  8. Yes but we know the Ancient Greeks did not look like this.

    less so when it comes to certain things, like hateful religious ideas being adopted by foreign cultures

    whether it be westerners (americans) adopting the idea god hates :eek::eek::eek:s

    or third-world south american countries learning from westerners

    others in similar situations

    I wasn't referring to anything religious. I'm talking about stuff like using chopsticks, wearing different clothes, doing yoga, doing martial arts, or eating different foods.

    not saying you were. just felt like mentioning an example of less than productive appropriations

    another example would be whites getting asian/indigenous tattoos, always looks silly

    Vinicius Queiroz? Oh yeah. Thats the same guy that tested positive for steroids at UFC 120. He probably changed his name hoping people would think he is a different guy.

    Mesopotamia (first recorded civilization) -> Lebanon (first recorded alphabet) -> Egypt (first record keeping in writing, on paper) -> Greece (first people to articulate what reason and logic meant in a way that could be learned and applied for everyone else [I think the idea that reason and logic were first discovered by the Greeks is silly, but they were the first to show a concrete and detailed method on it that could be studied by everyone else]) -> Rome (proto-modern world) -> Arabic Caliphate (stored and built on Greco-Roman knowledge when Roman Empire got sacked by Germanic tribes) -> Northern Italy (wealthy feudal families that funded the arts and sciences to flower the seeds of the renaissance; the foundation of modern banking)-> Spain/Portugal (the beginning of modern exploration that led to the discovery of the New World)

    -> Germany (the Guttenberg press; the innovative new way to mass reproduce books which sparked the enlightenment by expediating the transfer of knowledge thousand-folds) -> England (the beginning of Classical economics; the first political state to mix mercantilist policies with domestic free-market policies-. I'm talking the industrial revolution here :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:s) -> America (the internet)

    I think this line continues with China but that remains to be seen, maybe it'll be India (in the 19th century, British speculators assumed Argentina would be the successor to British world leadership).

    Let me ask you: supposing it wasn't the Greeks but the Hebrew or Berbers or Chaldeans or Persians who had layed the foundation for Western philosophy and science, would you claim them as the same race?
