comment A world in the moon?
This question seems slightly off. I think you need to anchor it more in historical belief maybe by rewording it.

comment Why Russia didn't embrace Western culture and principles?
I believe the reference to Peter the Great that the OP was making was to Peter the Great's affinity for Enlightenment principles even if he did not fully put them into practice.

comment How did Nazi Germany finance itself during WW2?
You have not included quite a few steps necessary to support your position that money being a fiction allows Nazi Germany to finance themselves. I'm not saying you are right or wrong, but you need am much more fleshed out answer. Perhaps you could expand on the theoretical aspect of money (unit of account, store of value, medium of exchange), and how government control of the money supply would be important if you have to self-finance things as a government. Additionally, expand upon the monopoly on violence that a government wields.

comment How did the United States penal system evolve?
I think this could be an interesting question if you framed it more to focus on the historical issues at play, and if you chose either: 1) why the US has capital punishment, or 2) why the US has such a high prison population. The question in it's current form is not really workable.

comment During the Great Depression, roughly what proportion of Americans lived below the World Bank PPP $1.25/day poverty line?
@RazieMah I undeleted the comments. Upon a second reading the comments were more productive then I realized; however, the comments section is not really the best avenue for this type of prolonged discussion. This is is in part why we have the chat room.
