Let's have an informative thread about each country's electoral geography and how it ties to demography, regionalism and so on.

Brazil's sharp blue state/purple state/red state divide, which only emerged from 2006 onwards, has been talked about a lot; Geocurrents had two excellent articles about it. I won't talk about the basics, as they're already covered well enough. But Martin W. Lewis has missed some things.

First of all, party loyalties at the state level do make a difference. This factor isn't as strong as it used to be in the Old/Oligarchic Republic period (1889-1930), when the entire national political process was centered on state-level loyalties, but is still felt in some states.
Rio Grande do Sul's leftist past mentioned in his article is a legacy of the state's social democratic loyalties. As they leaned towards a different, non Workers Party string of social democracy (see Leonel Brizola, the leftist who famously called Lula a "bearded frog") that has been defeated and cucked by the PT, their support for Lula gradually faded away.
São Paulo is an even better example: the entire state is radically anti-PT and anti-leftist, and has had fought to install its distinct political views on the federal government for over a century, to the point of fighting a civil war in 1932 when it was evicted from a decade-long liberal hegemony.

Another important point is that the hinterland has some distinct electoral factors absent from the densely populated coastal states the northernmost two still count as hinterland; Lewis shrugs off Roraima as an irrelevant case, but it expresses the same factors he covered about Mato Grosso.

What the hinterland states have in common is that their vast swathes of desolate savanna and jungle have experienced continuous waves of settlement and economic development since the last century. Thus, they have three dynamics that impact their voting:
>Highly profitable agricultural frontier areas versus poor traditional communities
>Expanding ethnic Brazilian settlement versus native communities and their reserve areas, with leftist governments backing the natives;
>Land reform, local political machines controlled by the rural upper class, peasant-landowner class conflict, far-left movements that claim to represent the landless invading and damaging property everywhere and so on

I know some of this personally, as I have an uncle who moved a couple decades ago to become a landowner in the hinterland; whenever he visits us, he complains about gun control and ignorant gringos/southeeasterners who know nothing about his situation, but constantly shill for environmentalism, natives, land reform and so on.

So why Hungarians vote as they vote?
If we take a look at the winner map (picrel) we see the yellow-orange sea of Fidesz-KDNP with small islands of red (MSZP and such) and grey (Jobbik). Is there a pattern here? Some divide like in the case of Brasil?
Well, it's absolutely clear that on the north-east the Fidesz didn't have that tight grip red and grey dots are much more frequent, especially the grey. I will come back to this in the next post and write about the possible reasons.
There are three more notable anomaly (i.e. not orange) on this map: Budapest (Central-North), Szeged (South, South-East) and Salgótarján (North, North-East), all are important settlements where the Socialists are still standing strong. I'm not entirely sure what's going on there my take on BP and Salgótarján would be more of a guess but in case of Szeged I've more solid info. Prior 2002 the people of Szeged swung back and forth from Fidesz to MSZP then back to Fidesz when it came to the leadership of the town. Then in 2002 they chose a mayor from the MSZP who done right (it seems) and they reelected him since then erry tiem. From 2002 he built a solid MSZP base there which vote them on every turn.
If we change our angle then we can define a different anomaly: spotless orange areas without other colors or at least almost none. I won't tire you with Hungarian names of the counties you see, so I'll discribe them with directions:
1. the two nort-western counties
2. the two central counties
3. the two south-eastern counties
I'll address this in the next post in parallel with the nort-eastern freckles.

(237.05 KB 1754x1239 unemployment.png)
A note: it's good to keep in mind that Fidesz-KDNP was the governing party in 2010-2014.

What could be the reason of the north-eastern freckles and the north-western, central, and south-eastern spotless orange?
First I'd draw your attention to the first map about the difference between the first two parties (this is also a repost). We can observe that in the north-east the competition was very fierce while on the north-west and central-south the Fidesz won quite confidently. While it's not entirely the case with the other spotless areas but the race wasn't that close in those areas either. This means three things:
1. the Fidesz was popular enough even in the north-east to give a tough fight,
2. but where it won in the north-east the other parties still came close, i.e. lots of people would rather see some other party at the head of the government, i.e. lots of unsatisfied people in that area.
3. in the spotless areas people are rather satisfied by the governing performance of the Fidesz.
Now take a look at the second map which is the annual net income per capita. Weeeellll there's some correlation but it doesn't give the sufficient answer we're searching for. Oh yes the north-west is undeniably the wealthiest part (along with the capital) and yes there are quite lot of blueish shades in the north-eastern parts however lots of blues can be seen on areas which aren't that freckled or contested like further east or the other side of the country in the south-west.
Let's review the third map: unemployment. Of course low income and unemployment goes hand in hand so this map is fairly similar to the previous. I find it more convincing as an explanation for the people's discontent in the north-east and the support of the north-west but maybe just the chosen colors are tricking me and of course the same discrepancies can be observed as on the previous map.
To sum up: those whose carts run well (as we say) under a certain government tend to vote back that government into the seats of power meanwhile the lack of wealth and jobs tend to turn people against the ruling groups but must be some other reasons which could cancel out the latter's effect.
I've more to add (like some historical info or some Hungarian particularities) but I've only have one more map. A map which no sane person in the mainstream media would put forward for a comparison but it would be very informative in the light the maps in this post. I try to dig around some more maybe I found some map with other demographic data.

So here's the third map that completes the landscape of net income and (especially) unemployment with it's slice of information. The gypsies.
A lazy population with below-average educational level isn't the greatest charming factor for the companies who seeks workforce. 300 000 people like this are living in the country distributed in a way this map shows. They will have that impact what those maps reveal to us in my previous post. They make up the largest part of the unemployed crowd, they are mostly good for jobs in the lowest wages (like working in public employment which pays much less then minimum wage) so they'll lower the average of the income per capita.
I have to say I'd really like to see a crime map too.
How is it important for voting preference? Those who living in those areas with higher gypsy population will tend to be disgruntled so they'll generally vote against the government no matter who it is.

>>10140
Oh it's worth mentioning. The actual number of the gypsy population is larger than 300 000 but unknown. It isn't mandatory to answer the question of the census on the ethnic background.
In personal conversations more and more gypsies declares him-/herself Hungarian, mostly those who have higher education with established normal jobs and try to disassociate themselves from the unemployed, the uneducated and the criminal elements, at least this is my experience and those who I had conversation on this topic so this last part is far from official.


Bernd 09/10/2017 (Sun) 08:36:34 [Preview] No. 10146 del
>>9906
The mentioned peculiarities:
The maps can't really reflect the impact of two large part of the Hungarian population: the aforementioned gypsies and the pensioners. Why? Because their votes can be bought and parties really do that.
In case of the gypsies is more blatant but it's more of a local thing. I read many articles in the past when this thing occurred, candidates promised and gave them food, alcohol and money.
Now the pensioners are on a whole other level. Hungary has almost 3 million of them! Their attitude toward the parties can and do decide the fate of the elections so everyone tries to keep them on their good side. So what does a party do? They promise to raise their pension, or keep the pension of the 13th month, or reintroduce it if previously it was necessary of it's termination. And the parties will tell them that other parties want to lower their money, and terminate the pension of 13th month and use other ways to demonize their opponents. And of course the party with the better propaganda machine will have more of their votes.
Right now the greatest scandal on Earth goes in our country. No it's not about the migrants or corruption. No. There was some demonstration where the Fidesz supporting pensioners behaved like savages they are and someone from the Jobbik, probably Vona himself made a remark on how the Fidesz makes animals from the good bland pensioners. Now the media controlled by the Fidesz is roaring all over the country how the Jobbik attacks these poor old people with it's foul ways it probably wants to take away their money as well. It works, Fidesz is gaining popularity.

I sucked as a kid when we played football due to lack of practice. I loved however playing during the larger breaks between classes in primary school when bunch of kids from all grades and ages just played free for all to one goal. Of course the older kids always had the advantage but as you got older...
Then in secondary school we had more freedom to chose what team sport to play at PE class so I could practice some basketball, volleyball beside football which was the least regulated and played by the rules. It was a bit rough sometimes but very adrenalin booster and somehow we all managed through it without injuries. Sometimes I played goalie and did a well job.
Since then I rarely played and only with friends and pals. These matches are even less orderly using two bricks as a goal or played on a sloped field or such. It's very enjoyable and it goes all right. At least for that I would worth nothing on a real field with normal rules and such.
The least sympathetic role is the strikers. Not that I wouldn't like to bag some goals but I dunno, they seem the least teamplayers maybe. I'm shit at heading so center backs are out too. All the other roles seems favorable tho.

I wonder what OP would wanna play.

Personally I'd say that side midfielders may be the most exciting roles to play. You need to cover a lot of space, coordinate pushes, but you also need a lot of physical 1v1 skill to do it. It's an active supportive role, I'd say the most crucial for a teem to succeed.

I played at back and was pretty good defender until late school. It requires less dribble skill, you just need to be quick to kick ball when opponent controls him.

And you don't need to be long runner, it is all about constant short-distance sprints. I was bad long-distance runner.

That depends on what we call exciting. I think a defensive midfielder has the most complex task as he has to play all the roles his teammates do with the exception of the goalkeeper. This implies however that his role is difficult which can be daunting rather than exciting but maybe not.

>>9994
Yeah a full back sounds good but a wing back sometimes need to run through the whole pitch forward and back. Depends on the tactics the team follows. But that's another story.

Hey I just remembered two games from WH40k universe.
First is Final Liberation https://www.gog.com/game/final_liberation_warhammer_epic_40000 which was fun but quite aged tbh I don't think I will recommend this to newbies especially if there is Warhammer 40000 Armageddon out.
https://youtu.be/U86UkGNOPHo
It's a turn based tactical game, similar in mechanics to Panzer General and setting to Final Liberation. You command your Imperial forces ranging from simple infantry units to titans against great Ork forces.
Game mechanics are quite developed, there's a lot of different stats and abilites and a lot of different units allowing for many strategies. You can upgrade your units between scenarios (or downgrade if this is fitting for current situation or you need some points back). Unit placement, order of attack, morale and using terrain are important, it can be a difference between total defeat and glorious victory. Unit carryover to next scenarios so you need to think ahead and not sacrifice your soldiers in pointless assaults, especially when your currency for which you buy new units seems to be scarce. I think Bernd will like this game much. Also it takes place in famous invasion of Armageddon and there are some iconic characters in this game so warhammer nerds should be pleased also. It's not a flashy AAA+ game, but I'm assuming this is not a problem here.

This board requires diversity of threads, so let's talk about architecture.

I'd start with stealing some images from some blog and post them there, because I can. This is photos of Soviet projects of 1920-1960s. Sometimes they look straight from Rome or WH40K, it is sad that they weren't implemented (but some of them are pretty crazy though). Modern architecture is a mistake.

1 - project of House of Soviets in Leningrad, 1936
2 - Pantheon of war partisans, project, Moscow, 1942
3 - Victory column at Manezhnaya square in Moscow, 1947
4 - project of Museum of Patriotic War on Red Square, 1943.

It is interesting that they started to draw war projects when war wasn't over.

Battles Bernd 07/16/2017 (Sun) 10:27:19 [Preview] No. 8950 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
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.

Another problems I see there.
1) Black powder weapons fail sometimes (as any weapon tbh). And when they do it takes fuckload of time to make it werk again. Often it would mean weapon is out of this fight. Maybe breech-loaded rifle could be cleaned more easily, but for muzzle-loaded gun it's a huge broblem.
2) When in formation where everyone is shooting, there's a lot of smoke and light and noise, you could sometimes not notice that your rifle didn't fire and load it again after pulling the trigger.
3) It seems there was much more discipline in firing in those times. No fire at will whenever you think it's ok, everyone is loading at the same rate, firing is done according to officer instructions, so no firing as fast as possible and no grabbing weapons from the dead.

While all points are valid they aren't contributing so much to explain the difference.
On the other hand I left out such facts as in practice the opposing forces many times fired at each other from much closer distance then 70 m (sometimes they fired shots after shots from a literal few steps inside a room without any result - only hoping the other will forced into submission with superior posturing).
Or while I took under consideration of artillery fire contributing the sum of losses in my calculation if I remember right I downplayed it's effectiveness (maybe to third instead of half), moreover I did not calculated the role of grenadiers who were the most effective troops of the infantry. These soldiers weren't equipped with just rifle/musket but with grenades which was so successful weapon that eventually all infantry troops were equipped with that (rendering "grenadier" to a simple title used to elite troops). We can't calculate how much percentage of the total casualties were caused by grenades but we know this was the preferred killing method of infantry during WW I and II (a WW II battalion used up about 500 grenades on a good fighting day). Why? Because it's easier to lob an iron knob (or and iron knob on a stick) into the vicinity of the enemy and waiting for fate to run it's course then actually target a fellow man, pull the trigger then watch him fall.
Also don't forget that the times of line infantry while the grenadiers lobbed grenades at the enemy lines the other troops stood and fired on the enemy... from grenade throwing range which is somewhere between 20 and 30 m.
All in all with rifles infantry killed much less then what I calculated.

Also you're not late I'm going to continue I'm just more interested in the content of the CD right now.

The Battle of Lepanto
>The turning of the tide of the Ottoman advance is due to the prayers of the millions of Catholics in Christendom. October 7th, the day the battle took place, is now the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, and the month of October is the month of the Rosary.

I didn't forget this thread I've just too much on my plate right now.
Yes, Lepanto was an important naval battle but might be overrated in the sense that it didn't caused the halt of the expansion of the Ottoman Empire but it was the sign of the sprouting weakness every empire has to face. So it's not a cause but an effect.
If you are interested in an interesting Ottoman story look up the last year or so of the life of Mehmed II and the siege of Otranto.

<The feud between the Saudi-led block and Qatar escalated over the weekend, with Doha protesting to the UN over restrictions on its citizens flying to Mecca, and Riyadh threatening "war" over what it considers calls to “internationalize the holy sites” in Mecca and Medina.
Reading this made me wonder.

I oftentimes see Muslims saying "but we hate ISIS and Saudi Arabia too, just like you kuffar". But do their actions reflect that? If they really hated the Saudis, there would be a movement to boycott the Ħajj. But that is unheard of.

>boycott the Ħajj

That is haram and also evil. Some things are placed above mundane conflicts, and Hajj is example of this.

Arguable; inability to perform the Ħajj for whatever reasons that would put one at risk (mainly cited health and wealth) allows one to postpone it without counting as a sin. With Makkah under political occupation that doesn't even care to provide safety to pilgrims (note the numerous stampede incidents recently) it might as well be cited as a sound reason to boycott until the House of Sa`ûd either fulfills their duties as the Šarîf or is replaced.

Any info on how business is going in Qatar?

Qatar still defying their neighbours. Meanwhile kikes at Fitch decided to give Qatar AA- ratings (Moody's and S&P probably following), which means additional warfare against their economy.

A while ago Saudi Arabia showed a cgi video of shooting down Qatar passenger airplanes.
