comment Why Russia didn't embrace Western culture and principles?
I think many in Russia would believe Russia is more democratic than the western countries currently because the leadership is more popular. Also many would argue that the USSR was more democratic than today's Russia.

@ihtkwot in any case it is difficult to see how the effort of Peter the Great failed. The system he instituted lasted for 300 years only to be replaced with Communist ideology(also borrowed from the West) by Lenin. Current rulers in many respect are inspired by Peter the Great.

comment Were the living standards in Medieval Europe a lot worse than in the Muslim world?
How sitting in a stone building makes your life worse? And were they really always just sitting? Also consider that mast of peasants in Europe were living in wooden houses while most of muslims were living in clay/stone houses.

comment What was the last landmass on Earth to be settled by human beings?
1. What do you mean under landmass? How big it should be? Are small islands counted? 2. Should it be an island, or may be peninsula, desert, steppe, plateu etc? 3. What do you mean under "exclude places like Antarctica"?

comment Is the claim that Hitler came to power democratically justified?
@Oldcat On the president election there were only Hindenburg and Hitler, those who did not want Hitler wanted for Hindenburg and still he appointed Hitler. Its it democracy if whatever you vote you get the same?

@Oldcat Hindenburg was president, there was no "coalition" with Hindenburg.

hoplites also fought as a unit. This is a false argument.
