Try to ask help from your classmates first. Avoid writing services as much as possible.

Of course not! The Church is an important focal point against immigrants living off taxpayer money and PC in general.

Many topic have touched on this issue, and I believe a debate should have been started.
Films like "The Kingsman" have expressed the opinion that humans are like virus and will overrun the Earth someday. However, I want to point out that this question has been brought up many times throughout history. So don't worry. If humans manage to stay alive, the population would certainly go beyond 7 billion.
And another thing. Resources are things that humans can use. This means that for certain periods in history population growth increases the amount of resources. But for the present we are on the downward curve.

The problem in the UA case is that it removed passengers for crew members. I put the question in this thread because workers' rights is part of PC.
All hail, Trump I! Seriously, tell him to get his wall going, would you?

U really need to cut it up into different periods for the question to be debate-able. For me, I think that in the time of Innocent III, the Church is but another de facto state, and not holier than HRE, France, England, Spain, etc.

 the only remedy is education in the 3rd world, without it people will just keep having to many children for sustainability 

 

Well said! A middle class is the best remedy for a high pop growth rate! And there are two factors necessary---education, and chance of self-betterment through trade. Unfortunately, if they that the second, why would those countries become part of the Third World? Education alone creates only a group of restless adolescents as we can see from what happened in Iran during its 80's Islamic uprising.

I think that "Byzantine" is simply too long to be a meaningful comparison to other armies. It may be better to divide it into "Flavian"(Under Constantine I and his descendants), "Justinian", "Heraclian", "Macedonian", "Komnenian" etc.

@yes or no? 

Just how is alcohol good?
Opium and its extracts were used as painkillers in the 19th century. It has WONDERFUL medical uses. But it is still outlawed in many countries. So, good is not a de facto reason that drugs are banned(or not, for the matter.)

You know, letting drugs kill irresponsible people might be a good reason to legalize it. Many dynasties in China collapsed because people who left the land had no way out.

Though the British Empire didn't reach its greatest territorial extent after WWI, the fact that it took part marks its decline in my opinion. Britain went on a quest to convince other empires that there is another way to become rich and get a better life---free trade. And in the end, Britain failed. The echoes of this failure still haunt international politics today.

Looking back the size of the Roman Emipire is pathetic...but who could have told Trajan the barbarians would build empires three or four times larger than his over a thousand years later?

 In my opinion loving and defending your country and people is totally acceptable as long as you are not hateful towards other countries/nations.

 

 
The thing is attitudes often end up this way. Like a classmate of mine said, it happens or it doesn't.

I did some homework in these years, and found that by Trajan (he ain't a Late Empire imperator, no?) Roman armies consist only of 10%
Italian population. That statistic speaks volumes.
Here's more. When Augustus Octavian passed away, the Roman Army consisted of 65% Italian population.
Barbarization is a nagging bedbug that finally ate the Roman Empire. Of course, similar symptons exist in almost every army.

Though it is irrelevant to the topic at hand, US democracy has more to do with the Iroquis Confederation than Athens. Lies your teacher told you lmao

With the rise of the South China Sea conflict things appear to be quiet on this line.
But it may not stay quiet. The PRC will have to make a move east to resolve the "Taiwan problem". Let's wait for the moment.

Humans are inequal, except in front of God and the law---some very famous British politician but I can't get his name.

First things first. To create a stable regime, you need happiness or despair. The Arabs had the latter. And the invaders gave them hope---WITHOUT food, shelter, work and WHAT THEY WANT BUT CANNOT ASK FOR. So since the US is in an ideological-diplomatical deadlock and Europe is busy within, some outside force must step in, either to give happiness...or despair.
Then they will rest in peace.

Not a military invasion. Exploiting the political fractures of the EU and China---in other words, a political invasion. Eating out your welfare funds. Living in most of your shelters. And oh, claiming the population in no-go zones.

It is time to face the fact that in this sense, the invasion is ongoing. And you might need the Nazis to save you this time, since aside from the CPUSSR, they are the only party capable of operating Auschwitz!

The question is simple---
just LOOK AT THE NO GO ZONE MAP. PLEASE.
I know it isn't fair of me to this in 2017 to a statement you made in 2015. But really. Just look.
