:Broadsword Edition:

>What is HEMA or WMA?

Historical European Martial Arts or sometimes Western Martial Arts are attempts at decoding, studying, and practicing the history, art, and fighting of everything from the Medieval Period to Early Modern Combatives.

What traditions are you lot studying at the moment?

Me? Going through George Silver's "Paradoxes of Defence" to expand my regimental broadsword/sabre repertoire.

Okay, not to jerk the guy off any further, but this is unironically the best guide to footwork I've read so far. They're the most basic (hence, important) steps that practically everyone uses, but the most miraculous thing is the fact that he made a footwork section this concise and universal. The only confusing thing is that the figure has his left foot in front when the lines are meant for a right foot forward stance.

To put it more simply than it already is, you have full and half steps. Either can be forwards or backwards, straight or slanted though he says forward steps tend to be sloped while backwards tend to be straight. The two steps of the back foot that are given special attention are the oblique pass forwards and the circular compass, where the back foot circles behind the front. That's it. For earlier fencing that uses left-forwards as much, simply mirror the diagram and actions.

It's basically HEMA footwork 101 from a historical source. Only thing left to add I'd say is foot/hip turning and the role it plays in power generation.

>Workers part cons
> have retarded positions on supporting free speech for the right
No, this is absolutely 100% based for a few reasons:
1) you're a lot more likely to get rightoid converts if you openly proclaim support for free speech, and this will help shatter the common stereotype of muh authoritarian anti-freedom commies.
2) ALL leftists should openly agitate against censorship in the media/online. Why? Because if media corporations start censoring the far right, they're inevitably gonna start censoring us as well, as they have alreadty done in some instances on places like twitter and reddit.

>The Chinese don't pollute to ridiculously disproportionate levels.
They do, but it's being cleaned up and unlike the USA, they are developing and growing, so the amount of waste is expected. Still they're far worse than the USSR in many environmental regards.

>>12837
>The idea of a feedback loop was popularized by malthus
That does not intrinsically make it untrue or Malthusian. The bible holds lines that are similar to Communist theory, that doesn't mean Communism is Catholic or Catholicism is Communist. Positive and Negative Feedback loops are observed in biology and are undeniable.
>Where did you get the idea that we are going to buy air
1) If you were a bit more aware, there is plenty of cynical humor common discussions that, after water and everything else is turned into a sold commodity, the next will be clean air/filters. FFS, even the shitty Lorax movie portrays this (also the Celestial Dragons from One Piece). It also has precedent in real life, given the toxicity of the current air. In India there are Oxygen 'bars' (pic related).
>From movies
No actually. My work is environmental science, and a common discussion for policies is the allocation of resources, with serious ideas about making water only a sold commodity to "reduce wastefulness" with discussions involving. Films and books reflect reality, not the other way around, The writings of Huxley and Orwell did not dictate the current progression of capitalism, they reflected the then future prospects.
>Population and development would keep growing forever despite any imminent reason to stop
Exponential Growth metrics come to a hard stop because of carrying capacity. If a species does not adhere to the capacity (or in humanity's option, raise said capacity), they will rocket up exponentially past it, and then crash just as hard, and given that Porky always benefits from crises, what do you think will happen?
>The stuff you said is ridiculous and pushed by psychopaths

*involving Air/oxygen commodification as a future concept. The easiest way to control someone is to not only control a vital resource, but also convince them that you control it rightfully, a la the head of Nestle, who stated that water ought not be free, but controlled (by corporations) all while Nestle is abusing water supplies far more than any city population.

yo so i guess i havent really listened to too much music from bands from this era or at least not there most recent releases part of it is to preseve the mythologizied part of them from my youth and to just say "that bands old" or what ever but this is not the point really as I'm sure many know brand new's lead dude said he did some stuff to chicks on tour way back when and like that's really just the tip of the ice burg in regards to this as there were so many allegations flying around at one point i just stopped i stopped listening it wasnt worth it any more i hate to sound sort of like a chud here but it was like when i was getting into leftism… i made a passing line about my admiration for a band in the genre (that genre being emo and pop-punk) specifically over me liking a non problematic band and this woman had the audacity to call me a "stan" of the sexual predators which i wasnt defending at all but it has made me not want to discuss music any more i used to play guitar every day and just like knowing that

1. I'm Older now and being a muscian dosent feel the same as it used to i used to feel cool i used to feel like it was empowering now i dont know

2. should we just be like "oh there cancelled never speak of them again" or should we be like a bit more aware of that trying to look into cases though the sheer amount of them all was so overwhelming im tempted to just NOT do that

3. is Music bourgeoisie ?? is it impossible to ""enjoy"" music in a "captalist society that exploits the common man's labour ?"

i miss being able to enjoy music how much of that is from growing older and how much of it is becoming more informed of "problematic elements within your music taste"


it's weird cause like despite my awareness of other things being "inherently reactionary" i have still let myself enjoy them un affected by my turn to leftist politics in some cases turning them into a new way to direct my political energy


I'm usuaully willing to duke it out with these sorts of people who are also apart of my leftist circles with everything but music or specifically this sort of music i even have gone so far as to start embracing international music so i cant be accused of "clearly this artist is a misognist" cause if i dont know what the words are saying then i cant be "doing harm to women and girls" like that one women said me liking this genre did
