comment Why does the United States keep using “old” date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
Keep in mind that most of Europe still uses imperial units for aviation, so it's not entirely fair to single out the US like that. It appears to have reached that point where the switch is simply too costly and dangerous for our aviation, so we're stuck with an inferior system for pragmatic reasons... Lucky Russians, they're metric even in aviation.

This is not at all an answer to the question asked. All countries were in this position at one point, but most of them managed to get over it, and the US didn't. Why? This question doesn't touch on that at all.

comment Which recent revolutions resulted in a major redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor?
I've deleted my lame examples. Is this still a bad question for this site?

@SamuelRussell Do you find both parts of that false, or just one? (the "eliminating a class" and the "redistributing wealth")
