discuss what? You havent really asked a question, do you mean history, politics, geography, literature, language etc.?

In general though, India, Russia, China, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq/Syria, Canada, Australia/NZL, Europe (deaskers choice) depends what you want out of it though.. the list changes depending on the field. This list is a mixture of important/upcoming countries, history, our history and literature

Not really, its a rising power in SE Asia with a rich history.
As to no history in Aussie and NZL, that is simply incorrect on every level. Aussie has a history going back thousands of years, NZL over a thousand with Maori not to mention their key roles in the history of Empire and the Commonwealth.

Yeah NZL links to the UK quite closely and the British used to send prisoners to Aus. I’m probably biased as a Kiwi, but they should defo be covered lol

I'm sure a google search will avail you of a continents history? The fact you dont know about Australias role in the empire is a touch concerning though, nor that its been populated for so long - or is this a mildly racist thing in that since they didnt build churches theyve done nothing 'major'..?

the point is, Australia does not have much notable history regardless of how many thousands of years it has been occupied by humans

In what way is that true exactly? Leaving aside it was the center of one of the biggest discoveries for explorers in history just because you dont know about Aboriginal history, or colonial/post-colonial Australian history does not mean its bereft of anything 'notable'..?

The continent is not just a baren rock with as much history as Slough..

I'm going to just take a wild guess that the aboriginals weren't at the forefront of any of the world's greatest discoveries, innovations, medical breakthroughs, other achievements, conflicts, wars or anything else. just witnessed the European colonisation and that is it

You could just admit you know nothing about Australian history and instead of this circuitous way of saying Aborigines are backwards and undeserving of any respect/attention..

Teach about the great leap forward in China as well for a "wars lost against birds" module.

i am still waiting for your list of all of the great advancements made by the Aboriginals... but of course, you are not guided by facts but by swivel-eyed wokeness
Do you even know what woke means? :rofl: Or are you simply going to be one of those quaint far right types who use it on anyone who doesnt share your intellectually stunted view on history? :rolleyes:
Either way, if the best you can do is be racist and lob insults, not really surprising from you but still, i think ill just bid you adieu. In the mean time i suggest you take the novel step of picking up a history book, who knows, you might learn something for a change.
