2018-12-13: Provider mandated maintenance on the search server will begin 2018-12-14 UTC-0 09:30-10:30, and may require the search to be powered off from 03:00-15:00.
Year-end planned maintenance on the full image server to replace degraded parity drive is also suggested by the Tetrarchy for 12-28 to 1-06, TBA. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Anne Frank's family tried escaping to US but thwarted by 'bureaucracy'

No.4979181 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Otto Frank, Anne’s father, began seeking ways to escape to the US as early as 1938. At the time, the US had no specific refugee policy, but enforced quotas based on national origin.

The Franks were never officially denied visas, the report concludes, but their applications were rendered useless by “bureaucracy, war and time”. One application was lost in a German bombardment of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in 1940.

Following the publication of the report last week, Jewish groups have warned of potential contemporary parallels. Melanie Nezer, an official with the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a Jewish non-profit that helps resettle refugees, pointed to Donald Trump’s travel ban and gutting of refugee resettlement programs.

“These nationality-based bans echo the policies that kept people from German-occupied countries out of the United States beginning in 1941,” she told HuffPost via email. “Even though they were not explicitly the target of these policies, Jews were particularly impacted by them.”

Why has Europe invented most things?
Why have wealthier and more populous regions like India and China not invented much?
Is it lack of competition? Cultural emphasis based on maintaining the status quo?

Second major query: is invention tally objectively the only way to guage tge significance of a civilisation?

1. Explain Hinton Rowan Helper's argument that slavery had enslaved the South?

2. Was he worried about the morality of slavery? Explain.

3. Why did Helper’s attack enrage, and perhaps frighten, Southerners more than Lincoln’s did?
