comment What set Checkpoint Charlie apart from the other border checkpoints in Berlin during the Cold War?
The Stand-off between US and Soviet tanks was probably quite famous. But it wouldn't be significant for defectors.

comment What was the reason for inflation in Britain after the Black Death?
I hypothesize that they considered it obvious that all land should be cultivated, even if it didn't pay.

comment Is the “youth bulge” hypothesis an evident explanation for imperialistic/rebellious historic movements and genocides?
Do you mean that this happens when new-born girls are killed, as in China? Otherwise how can there be a surplus of males?

comment What are the origins of the Shinto religion?
All cultures at an early stage had polytheist / shamanist religions. The Japanese had Shinto since ancient times in the same way that the Greek had Zeus, Poseidon etc.

comment What was the reason for inflation in Britain after the Black Death?
Just a guess: Every piece of land belonged to someone. Every landowner wanted every piece of his land to be cultivated. Thus what mattered was the total amount of land, which hadn't changed, not the total amount of its owners.

Thanks, but now nationalism is strong. My guess is that Belgium will split.
