comment Was Hitler hostile to anglo-saxons before he became hostile to Jews?
+1 I'll change anglo-americanism into anglo-saxons (as in peoples descended or associated in some way with the English ethnic group), which is perhaps the better term (not a native speaker); a lot depends on the interpretation of "broke through" which is why I'd like to learn more about the reviewed article

comment Why did modern “Romania” remain the most “Roman” part of the Balkans?
Notice that the Danube was oftentimes the northern limes of the Roman empire; present-day Romania and Bulgaria: north and south of Danube respectively.

Hmm, in this map the Imperium Romaniae does not seem to overlap with present-day Romania.

Alright, that sounds quite sane :) I'll reread your answer a bit later and will perhaps recast my vote. And welcome to the site too ...

I downvoted a couple of responses (you can check my stats: it's not normally my habit), because IMHO this discussion is running wild with lots of contradictory anecdotes and snapshots. I've also voted to close the question, it just seems so poisonous. (No, I don't have an agenda but yes, I could be biased -- just one vote, after all.) Hope you can understand.

typo: it's "Edward Snowden" (i.e. with "e" instead of "a" as in "rant" :)

How long until somebody quotes Daniel Goldhagen ... ? (How long until we can expect a book by him explaining what forces history have prevented him from getting tenure at Harvard ... ) It's as sad subject and very poisonous.

comment Did any other countries try to breed a race out like what happened in Australia?
@jwenting I agree (hint: rhetorical question).

Yep, I think on substance (apart from irony) you have a point.

Calvinism as in the French theologian John Calvin? :)

Possible starting point: ask yourself how you might have behaved under the circumstances. You don't have to tell us, but be honest to yourself.
