comment What are the safeguards in the German constitution of 1949 against dictatorship?
@Felix Goldberg I think it is intended not against dictatorship as such, but against possibility of involving Germany in an aggressive war. This is because it was alleged that Germany's participation in the both world wars was motivated by private interests of the military-industrial bourgeoisie who wanted to profit due to military spendings, a process similar to how the US now spends on their military more money than all other countries in the world combined in the absence of a direct threat to their territory.

comment Did the Romans have winter uniforms?
Roman state never relied on the divinity of their rulers, lol. "Divus" means "god-like", not "god". No emperor ever was called "Deus" ("god").

the book only reflects the pro-Finnish sympathies of the Western historiography.

@RI Swamp Yankee they were under occupation. Similarly France was occupation, but Britain did not demand war reparations from her. Also as I said, the British could easily consider the war declaration void because it was not signed by the regent as required.

comment Why is Thailand considered an Axis power in WWII?
@RI Swamp Yankee the US never dealt with Thailand as an enemy country whether it is due to Free Thai or not. Three countries raised objections agains Thailand joining the UN after the war, for different reasons: France (who understandably demanded the return of the land), the USSR (who demanded abolishing the anti-Communist legislation, a reason not directly connected with WWII) and Great Britain which indeed considered that Thailand was at war with them. The position of Britain is the less understandable of them all.

comment What are the factors that caused the new world civilizations to be less technologically advanced than the old world?
@astabada if Indians of the time met with the American cultures I think there would be no difference. For Chineze the difference would be minimal.

@RI Swamp Yankee Great Soviet Encyclopedy, article "Nuclear weapons" ("Ядерное оружие") "Применение ЯО не вызывалось военной необходимостью. Правящие круги США преследовали политические цели — продемонстрировать свою силу для устрашения свободолюбивых народов, запугать Советский Союз." "Use of the nuclear weapons was not justified by military necessity: the ruling class of the USA pursued political aims - to demonstrate their strength to the freedom-loving peoples, to threaten the USSR." bse.sci-lib.com/article128061.html
