I just think you're cool, and deserve more interesting asks, so did you know that the Japanese Shogunate was actually developed using guns traded for from the West? The Shogun, having established centralized power, then completely banned and confiscated firearms, so that no one would have the might to oppose his rule. He also forced a cultural shift in the Samurai class to favor swords, rather than the bows and spears they used pre-firearm, because they were militaristically inferior.


I did not know that. THE MORE YOU KNOW

Knowledge is power.
