The production values on this movie look quite impressive. The Decembrist revolt is of course almost ready made for dramatists.

As to wether it is a harmful stereotype, I’d be unable to comment.

That is true, however I had already spoken to the university of the terms and then focused on the Native American aspect of the usage. Tribe and clan etc I will not comment on. But I think it is a habit, across no matter where in the world, to overgeneralise the term warrior.

The lack of conscious acknowledgment of this in history books is definitely odd. As you’ll read passages that describe individuals achieving this status through multiple acts of bravery etc, yet the blanket phrase is generally warriors. Works for military history I guess.

I can see that, because by extension of what I just said, being a ‘warrior’ in such a society was not always or predominantly I expect, a full time job or a profession.

update. I summited Everest at 0530 and Lhotse at 1545 despite heavy traffic. I am now at Makalu base camp. Will be going directly for summit push from base camp. I will update once Makalu is complete. Thank you for my support especially my sponsors.

Our Everest correspondent reported heavy traffic this morning, with congestion mainly between Everest and Lhotse. (Joking aside, the man is made of steel, my respect to him, bravo!)

I'm genuinely shocked that this animation technique from the 30s used by the Fleischer brothers never caught on. Hand drawn animation against a moving miniature backdrop creates such a cool 3D effect. POPEYE THE SAILOR MEETS SINDBAD THE SAILOR (1936) dir. Dave Fleischer

Interesting. European Celtic peoples (& indeed many early nomadic or agrarian societies across the world) have traditionally been referred to by existing tribes & clans, & because every male Btween a certain age bracket was expected to bear arms the men are often called warriors.

Found reused as spolia in a late medieval wall near Trajan’s Market in Rome, this glorious curly-haired sculpture of the head of Dionysus was excavated today and dates to 1st-2nd cent AD.

I doubt he’s apologising for the CSA, both sides were bad for the Indians, I think he’s just pointing out that crimes committed under the Stars and Stripes are deemed for a greater good & indirectly celebrated, but those committed by the rebels are a pure distillation of evil.

At and up to a certain point as well pipers were privately employed by the Regiment rather than by the government.
