I've already mentioned the book titled On Killing - The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society by Dave Grossman (Lt. Col. of US Army). It gave some food for thought and I'm planning to write some of my speculation.

But what did the author write? Let's summarize.
He starts with the observation that most men has a natural resistance to kill (only 2% of men - those who have "predisposition toward aggressive psychopathic personality" - can go on killing without becoming a nervous wreck). This resistance is so high that even at times that our life is directly threatened (like others shoot at us) still difficult to overcome it. This resistance is the reason why infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years - with the exception of machine guns - despite the fact that infantry weaponry (rifles) are reliable and accurate enough to cause massive losses among the enemy.
The author gives examples and sources, such as a Prussian experiment in the late 18th century, several reports and notices from several authors during 19-20th centuries (American, French, Israeli etc.), and an interesting work by a US Army historian who (and his coworkers) made mass interviews with fighting GIs during and after WWII. Also he cites his own conversation with veterans of WWII and Vietnam.
He gives new ideas on what's really happening on the battlefield. He compliments the widely known fight-or-flight model with two other options: in reality the soldiers can fight, posture, submit or flight. And most soldiers choose the second option.
Then he ponders on what enables killing (I'm gonna write more about this later) and how modern (post-WWII) armies achieve this. Then he compares these methods with the ways of contemporary mass media. His conlcusion is (after pointing out the exponential rise of violent crimes) that mass media has an undesirable effect on society.

What interesting for me is this resistance, and the enabling part. These things are actually give an entirely new way of looking warfare, and how and why battles were won.
For example the part officers (the demanding authority to kill) play in the enabling. When people (professional historians, history pros and other armchair generals) comparing the Hellenic phalanx with Roman manipulus and why the latter was more successful they compare everything but the officers. In the phalanx he's only one among those who stand in line and do the poking with pikes, but a Roman officer is one outside the formation and pressuring the soldiers to kill. It makes a huge difference if someone shouting in your ears "stab! stab! stab!" and generally pressuring you to kill. Especially if this one person is an exemplary one, a veteran whose skill in killing surpasses all the others in that particular unit. However noone talks about this because noone thinks about it.

I'll continue this sometimes, maybe only next weekend, we'll see. If you wish to read the book you can probably find it on libgen.

let me guess, archive.org?

because now my link is not working at all for me. Sigh, that was the only site that had the volume with the 11th Michigan Cavalry, they fought Morgan's guerillas in Kentucky

and Cavalry vs. guerilla tactics would be quite unlike anything we've dug into so far. I am curious to see how the psychological fatigue guerillas induce would be complicated by the animal husbandry present in a fully mounted force

Yeah, archive.org. And yeah it's about the 8. Infantry.
For me that link still works. So the problem is somewhere in your appliance.

After drawing an image, I decided to read the article.

I guess they exaggerating the environmental damage from these poles. Yes, soil becoming muddy after this, but I don't think that walking people damages soil more than pack of wild pigs for example (they literally can ruin everything). Or beaver dam that can destroy whole local ecosystem. Why they don't consider humans same part of nature as beavers or boars?

Bernd 02/06/2018 (Tue) 21:18:51 [Preview] No.13558 del
>damages soil more than pack of wild pigs for example
Oh yeah, every autumn and sometimes winter I always see their destruction here and there. They do it in patches seasonally then it "heals" up.
But hikers are - most of the time - move on a lane all year round so their impact is continuous not leaving time for natural restoration. Here these poles aren't truly popular I see few people with those. Also I don't know about the usage level of the American trails. What I read here and there the official hiking tracks like the Appalachian Trail the article mentions can be very busy with traffic.
However as I see it the article raises potential problems which need further investigating.

Yeah, I read/heard/seen somewhere beavers can be a pest.

>Why they don't consider humans same part of nature as beavers or boars?
I feel the same. I see people frequently think about humans as outsiders and the results of our doings as unnatural. But we are the product of nature and use the resources of nature to create stuff like beavers for example.
And I'm not saying we should dump all the chemicals into our rivers because it's natural...

But what if you realise one oughtta split Earth into Wood and Metal?

Bernd 01/30/2018 (Tue) 21:34:33 [Preview] No.13431 del

But there is no æther in part about fire, so you can't directly compare fire and human life. Or you need to add it.

Bernd 01/31/2018 (Wed) 06:12:21 [Preview] No.13436 del
I don't usually get Wood when listening to Metal.
But I'll think about that.

Ether is everywhere. Fire can free out of things to do other things or put it into other things. But maybe it's easy to mix up it's effect with the doings of Fire. I'll think about that too.

I think this "evening" will be more like tomorrow evening or in the morning, sometimes, the board will be here. I have this revelation early in the morning I woke up briefly and the thought of sharing it looks differently after a usual day of brainwashing. Nothing earth shattering it's just an already existing idea put into a slightly different perspective.

National holiday, no work today only for bus drivers and such.
This revolution and war of independence is called "of 1956" because it's the 1956th such happening in the last 500 years.
I might write something later. Why not.

>1st pic
Mátyás Rákosi, the leader of the communist Hungary between 1949 and 1956, Stalinist dictator. The revolution deposed him and co. sadly they didn't hang around they lived their lives in the CCCP happily ever after.
>2nd pic
Communist Hungarian flag.
>3rd pic
Hungarian flag freed of the burden of the communist emblem.
>4th pic
Imre Nagy, leader of the revolutionary Hungary. Communist, in 1953 appointed as a PM by the soviet overlords but shunned later as he started certain processes which led people to believe they could think more freely now. He was even forced out of the Party in '55. He kinda was the only one who had a chance to be accepted by the SU so he came to be the head of the revolution.
