comment Do most of today's democratic nations with two-party system exhibit a civil war in recent past?
@PaulRowe: Huh. I don't remember writing this, which is not surprising given it was four years ago. Are you referring to what's usually called the Revolution as a civil war? It seems to me that political parties didn't result from the pro- and anti-independence sides for the simple reason that most anti-independence people fled after or during the war.

comment Are there confirmed cases where a country changed its language without being conquered?
@WladimirPalant: If the position of the Warsaw Pact countries counts as "conquered", then Scotland was "conquered" by England after the accession of James VI and I. That is, the weaker country could do whatever it wanted so long as the stronger country liked it.
