comment Did Hitler not intend a major war while invading Poland?
OK, after getting to know more facts about Taylor, I think the question should be rather "did" than "why", because we speak here about private theories of Taylor, unless you provide on what facts his opinion is based. Then we can refer to them.

Can you please provide that quote in a longer paragraph, so we can know the exact context of these words before answering?

comment The practice of translating foreign monarch's or noble's name
But it's worth to mention that in Norwegian language the names are practically the same - no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_over_Polens_herskere

comment The practice of translating foreign monarch's or noble's name
I wouldn't call it an obsession. Firenze in Polish language is Florencja, Charles V is Karol, François is known as Franciszek Walezjusz. Norwegian king Håkon V Magnusson is known here as Haakon V Długonogi (long-legged), while his father Magnus VI as Magnus VI Prawodawca (law-maker). Also, as a tourist guide, dealing with people from around the world, I find it much easier to refer to Polish kings with their English or French names. Casimir III the Great in English tells the audience much more than Kazimierz III Wielki, Auguste II le Fort in French tells more than August II Mocny.

comment The practice of translating foreign monarch's or noble's name
Past foreign monarchs are referred to by the English version of their name only in English language history texts. They are only a certain percentage of all history texts available. So please clarify if you ask only about particular English language rules and customs, or you refer to the overall practices around the world, regardless of the language, as different countries may have different practices.

comment When and how did the idea of a “class-less” society originate in the United States?
Felix, but unlike American Revolution, French Revolution was a war of classes, in order to provide class-less (well, at least more class-less) society. The same with communists.

comment Effect of natural environment on the development of cultures
While the question is interesting, it's still one of those you could write a book about, what makes it not fitting this particular website. It's also not exactly history, rather anthropology. Speaking about particular examples of such influence would do, but talking about it in overall is a different matter.
