I found a really cool Austrian painter, Johann Georg Platzer. He painted lots of mythological scenes, but my favourites are his depictions of artists at work.

Here's a sculptor. Note that it's actually his (quite swole) assistant who is working the chisel.

An atelier, with the painter in blue probably being mentored by the dude with the book. It's really cool how well the characters stand out via use of high contrast. The brightness of their clothing is beautiful. Also gotta love the old lady peeking from behind the painting.

Look at all the detail and stuff going on in this one! Every character shown is unique and full of detail and story, their poses and faces telling so much.

I love this stuff so I felt like sharing to my fellow art mans.

he Holodomor (Ukrainian: Голодомо́р);[a][2] (derived from морити голодом, "to kill by starvation")[3][4][5] was a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine in 1932 and 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. It is also known as the Terror-Famine and Famine-Genocide in Ukraine,[6][7][8] and sometimes referred to as the Great Famine[9] or The Ukrainian Genocide of 1932–33.[10] It was part of the wider Soviet famine of 1932–33, which affected the major grain-producing areas of the country. During the Holodomor, millions of inhabitants of Ukraine, the majority of whom were ethnic Ukrainians, died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine.[11] Since 2006, the Holodomor has been recognized by Ukraine[12] and 15 other countries as a genocide of the Ukrainian people carried out by the Soviet government.[13]

Yes, I've been paying attention, but I forget what you know and don't know.

Europeans have, in general, had lower amounts of children even during their times of having higher than average amounts of children when compared to other groups in similar situations.

This is due to their survival strategy of focusing more on raising fewer children, having them develop more slowly but thoroughly, and giving them more time and care. We call this principle of breeding for quality vs quantity as a survival strategy the r/K selection theory.

Even the well-intentioned relief efforts going on today are a waste of time. Africans have been living in poverty and starvation in a hostile environment for thousands of years. As such, they've adapted a breeding strategy to have more children rather than focus on a few with the hopes that some of them will survive. In a natural setting, many of the children would (of course sadly) die, but this would keep levels of starvation down as there are fewer mouths to feed. When relief and aid comes, this enables more of the children to survive, but since you have more people alive, more people will now end up starving, and even MORE relief will need to be given! It's a never ending cycle that only the Africans themselves can fix by changing their breeding strategy. As much as it's painful to watch videos of starving children, giving them more food and money is not going to fix the problem, because the problem is inherent to the Africans themselves.

the problem isnt inherent to africans, all industrialized societies went through that phase

The socio-economic factors behind industrialization are of course going to ensure that people go through periods of high birth/high death rates in the beginning.

Despite that, you're not going to get rid of a breeding practice that's been going on for thousands of years due to literal natural selection with industrialization or puny social projects. What's encoded in genes naturally takes a long time to undo compared to problems that are purely socio-economic, which this problem isn't. This trait is heritable and persists even in industrialized countries where Africans happen to be living, like the US or European countries.

We probably need to stop before going further to catch up on the basics before we shout "it's race!" or "it's socioeconomic status!" back and forth like most people do. Statistics are our friend here.

If you've gotten to the point where you understand the heritability of intelligence is a better predictor of low or high scores on standardized testing rather than socio-economic and cultural factors, then we can continue. If not, we should start there.

Vanguard, you somehow read the entire thing and missed the FIRST damn paragraph? I don't believe it.

Let's say they're "benevolent" so we don't confuse colonization with pure conquest and exploitation.

And then you jump right into exploitation, ignoring the entire premise of my story.

Can you not hypothesize things? Can you not think on abstract terms?

The story I made was in agreeance with your point that colonialism is a bad thing. I'm adding something further. Colonialism isn't just bad because the victorious culture exploits the defeated culture, but because the inequality of their relationship will inherently lead to problems every time. However, the cause of this inequality runs deeper than just money and wealth.

EVEN IN AN IDEAL SCENARIO when literally the only thing the the colonial power is trying to do is help, it will end badly for everyone. It's better to just leave developing civilizations alone than to introduce high level problems, when they still haven't sorted out the low level problems.

Do you guys seriously think I believe European colonialism was a good thing in Africa? Far from it. The particular guys who did it like Cecil Rhodes were absolute bastards and crooks and should have left them well alone.

Even the well-intentioned relief efforts going on today are a waste of time. Africans have been living in poverty and starvation in a hostile environment for thousands of years.

    no not at all. I wish the internet had an IQ detecting program, and when it detects someone with an IQ of less than 90 it had the ability to shoot flames out of the monitor and spikes out of the keyboard to keep them from internetting ever again.

    So the internet would be >>>minority free?
    Sounds good to me

    I thought Asians have a higher average IQ than whites in North America.

Not just in America
