comment No speed limit on German highways - why?
How much would it cost the society to actually implement the speed limit: setup monitors, process violations etc.? Just because the idea of no limit has industrial lobbysts doesn't mean that it's wrong.

comment Did the Founding Fathers of the USA really make a distinction between a Republic and a Democracy (and despised the latter)?
@DVK I ask whether such a slogan was likely to be heard in a public speech in 1920 in the USA. And the purpose of that question is to trace the moment of the change of perception of "Democracy" in popular american culture. Would that question make more sense if I deleted the information that such a slogan was present in a made up show about 1920s?

comment Did the Founding Fathers of the USA really make a distinction between a Republic and a Democracy (and despised the latter)?
I provided definitions and I ask whether founding fathers shared them. So this question couldn't be more straightforward. I do not bother with other definitions. We could close all other questions based on the fact that someone might disagree on the definition of some word - I see no reason to single out the definitions of Democracy and Republic.

comment Did liberalism in the USA degenerate into something more totalitarian than liberal?
left-wing, right-wing - this doesn't tell me much. Nazism is said to be right-wing, while communism left-wing, but from the point of view of classical liberals they are both totalitarian.

comment Was “Blitzkrieg” at least partly intended for trapping the Jews?
The 1938 incident - expulsion of Jews who previously had Polish citizenship - is an argument that at least for some period Hitler wanted Jews out rather than in.
