comment What are the counterarguments to calling German nazism a right-wing movement?
Why not just say they are different terms that are misapplied across different languages and cultures? Your answer sounds like the wounded cry of someone whose politics have been assaulted — "Nazism and Fascism ... share a LOT .. with a lot of liberal/progressive politics" [emphasis yours] — rather than a balanced, dispassionate explanation.

comment Why did the Monitor and Merrimac (aka Virginia) have such radically different designs?
I understood that the Monitor had two guns, facing opposite each other, so that one could be firing at the enemy while the other was facing away for reloading.

comment When did homosexuality become unacceptable in Europe?
+1: It's worth noting that the act of coitus between an older man and an ephebe has been described as ritualistic and formulaic — not the languid, gay-porn depictions some would imagine, but something in which the adolescent male was actually discouraged from seeking pleasure from. I can't remember where I read that; probably H.D.F. Kitto's book The Greeks.
