The previous thread is at 499 posts, on the brink of autosage. So I open up a new one, because I have a thing to discuss as well with Bernd. But first thing first.

Finally I wanna watch these in their entirety, a series of Japanese films from the 70s The Yakuza Papers or Battles Without Honor And Humanity - which is also the title of the very first one.
I think the first five (what I'm planning on consuming) cover one full story, based on an OG yak's memoirs, published in a newspaper first. Then they made another three in the 70s, all standalone, and three more, two of them in this millennia.
They are in a certain subgenre of yakuza movies, which were fresh breeze at that time with their more realistic narrative and breakup with the "honorable samurai" romanticism of the previous era. They are also filmed in a documentary style, with handheld shaky cameras, and sometimes they even timestamp certain events as the movie plays - as far as I can tell based on the first one which I seen (but will rewatch).

Watched the Mosul movie, was worried that it'd be "Hollywoodized" but I'm too interested in the topic. My fears were excessive, it's not bad. The urban environment shows an actual city people live in, the characters are placed in their context (e.g. talk about pelting American Humvees with stones as children) and the rifts in the anti-ISIS coalition (the unit, its Iraqi superiors, Iranians, Americans) are shown. It's gritty and the scenes are well made. On the other hand they didn't really add up into much emotion for me.

Hmm. I'm interested in both. Damascus Time was a curiosity, I enjoyed that.

Belmondo is great. Both him and Alain Delon had some iconic movies. They even made films with both. Hungarian state telly broadcasted quite of few.
We shouldn't forget about Sophie Marceau and her thighs tho.
There's also Funes with his comedies.

Today we celebrate and glorify Pedro II's overthrow in a military coup 129 years ago, marking our transformation into a banana republic. The strongman who led the coup is even in every 25 cent coin.
As typical, Temer spoke about the virtues and strength of liberal democracy even though the Braganza were more liberally democratic than the following regimes.

Read Luttwak's book, now I can give direct examples to some of what he discusses. However he builds upon the premises of a small coupist force infiltrating the capital city (replace the legal capital with Rio in this case) none of which apply here, though Mourão Filho's original concept >>39547 is as close as it gets.
It is completely unnecessary to take over the capital when the following take place:
-A sufficient threat of bloodshed is offered by the incorporated forces (4th Infantry Division, IInd Army), even if they're weaker than legalist reaction forces
-The government is afraid of bloodshed
-The government is led to panic and retreat after seeing defections, particularly a defection of a powerful, geographically close commander deemed trustworthy (i.e. Kruel)
-A foreign power threatens to recognize a parallel government
There was no classical storming and takeover of Rio de Janeiro. Rather, the government was bullied from outside into leaving it and the empty edifice of power was taken over. That's definitively a different kind of coup d'état. It probably still fits the definition.

On the other hand the 1961 coup was more of a pronunciamento, not an armed takeover but a veto by the military leadership to the Vice President taking office; it turned into troop deployments when the IIIrd Army refused to follow suit. Another pronunciamento could be the Colonels' Manifesto of 1954, a mere declaration which made President Vargas fire minister Goulart.
What still puzzles me is the difference between 1961 and 1964, how one failed and the other succeeded. There was mass political engagement, it was an age of populism - "a significant part of the population takes an active interest in political life—and regularly participates in it." On the other hand a significant part didn't.

In 1961 public opinion was overwhelmingly against the military ministers and they failed. In 1964 it was divided and the coupists won. In both cases there was also a degree of disillusionment with traditional politicians but that didn't stop enthusiasm for Goulart, which was one of them; I'm not counting this as a factor.
But according to Luttwak the overwhelming reaction against a coup by those engaged in politics, even if opposed to the government, should've taken place in both cases, but it only seems to have taken place in one of them. Public opinion wasn't supposed to have divided. So either there are more nuances to what determines it or it was weak/a nonfactor. After all in 1961 it wasn't public opinion alone but governors and the IIIrd Army, and even then their victory was hollow as the compromise of parliamentary government emptied the President's powers.

Yeah, hairy caterpillars are neat.

Yeah, turns out it really is a practical guide and he build sup an imaginary example, kind of an idea of coup in the platonic sense. He mentions special circumstances a few times, since every individual situation will be unique in some way.
Technically the coupists did have a force in the capital (I mean Rio), and they made the functioning of the legalists less smooth. Their failure maybe was not preventing Goulart's leave, not sure if they even had the capacity for that.

Since the previous reached bump limit.

Played some moar Atom RPG. I don't really have any coherent text drafted but some impressions, moments and such.

This game is depressing. It's like they extracted all the misery of the Soviet Union, ground it, added a hint mutants and monsters, then crammed it into one misery-sausage. Ofc there are funny lines and situations in there, always when you least expect. And you never expect them because the whole thing is so depressing.
NPC interactions are animated nicely. Heart warming meeting of father and daughter. Then they started to gossip about me.

That depends. In Caligula, that's the main plot, me thinks.
Maybe it caters to the voyeuristic nature of people, and/or maybe movie makers exploit this curiosity.
This might be related to the gossipy nature as well. People like to know stuff about other people, and talk about these stuff. And they would gossip about everything they saw or heard, all the aspects of others' life. Sex is part of that.
And while we at life and what it covers, artists deal in the aspects of life, especially with those which involve emotion and/or desire, and a subset of this is sex.
As previous commenter above somewhere said, you can jump over those, fast forward and that's it.

As I promised I'll write about this book.
It's quite lengthy but you'll reach the end if you read at your own pace. Most of the book isn't dense for me, an economic layman, with the exception of the parts about trade, which left me confused. I'll write what I manage to understand.
The author wrote it to argue in historiographical debates and make some points, but I read it just to add to my historical knowledge.

I'll write in sections, at most one a day so Bernd doesn't get overwhelmed, and will try to make the sections more thematic rather than just a sythesis of each chapter, as Hitler himself suggests in Mein Kampf for how one should mentally organize knowledge. I want to write about:

-Trade and controls of foreign currency and raw materials
-Budgets and revenue
-Businessmen and workers
-Consumer goods
-The fate of different industries
-General progression from 1933 to 1939

If I give up on writing I hope at least to cover the prewar period. I also hope to write on:
-Armaments priorities until 1940
