comment Income distribution of major combatants before and after WWII?
Interesting. Inequality (if we accept top income as a proxy, I think it's not the worst one) gets less through the 30ties, this decline is less marked in the 40ties but still there.

comment Were any drugs (except alcohol) forbidden during medieval or ancient times?
Now that I think of it yes. I sometimes think state==nationstate which would be far more recent.

comment Were any drugs (except alcohol) forbidden during medieval or ancient times?
This is proably later than medievial times by most definitions, but still pretty interesting because it shows that the assumption my question was based on was wrong for some societies the 16th century onwards. thx.

comment How many acres per person were needed for the early American settlers vs. the native Americans?
The answer will be more complicated because AFAIK some native Americans (nad maybe some settlers for part of thetime?) where nomadic or semi nomadic. When you roam thousands of acres, but but only stay in one spot for a few weeks - do you 'need' all that land?

comment History of the Changes and Developments in Types of Urban Renewal Projects
You might be interested in David Harvey short text "a right to the city": davidharvey.org/media/righttothecity.pdf He touches a few questions of how and why urban renewal was done (though I'm not sure he directly answers your question)

@MarkC.Wallace I've translated the relevant part of my article, this should give you some clue as for bias.

I don't understand your second sentence: If the event never took place, it is disproven, I would think. Can you clarify? Can you name the sources for the claims that Yakuza were used for anti-communist activities?
