comment Did the Founding Fathers believe that states had the right to secede?
Depends on your definition of "duplicate". My answer to this question would certainly be an exact duplicate of my answer to the other one.

comment Why was not Greek alphabet adopted by other languages given the Greek influence?
@Anixx - Ah. Yes, that sentence makes no sense at all out of context like I left it there. Thank you for pointing it out. I've elaborated what I meant to say. Does this make more sense now?

comment Where do all the bullet casings after a war end up?
Where I live in Oklahoma its still common to come across arrow heads. I can only imagine what it must be like in areas in Europe where automatic rifles were used in anger.

Note that Nationalism itself has been argued to be a direct result of the printing press (which means it would not have been possible before the mid 15th century). So perhaps this is yet another in my series of answers attributing everything to the Printing Press. :-)

comment Why didn't Native (North) Americans ever advance their civilization?
To me this question looks very similar to history.stackexchange.com/questions/94/…

comment Why didn't Native (North) Americans ever advance their civilization?
There was also agriculture in the American East, the Mississippi Valley, Mexico, Central America, South America...essentially every biome it existed in the Old World too.

comment Did the Germans purposefully arrange to send Lenin to Russia to start a revolution?
@fdb - If indeed the facts of this answer are correct, it would be tough to seriously argue that it didn't "pay off", as it removed an entire front from the war, freeing up 50 divisions and temporarily at least giving the Germans a 3-2 advantage on the Western front (until the US could get there in numbers). Sadly for them, that wasn't enough to win, but this at least gave them a chance.

comment Is this Brzezinski quote real?
What this answer is really missing IMHO is the fact that 99% of the time when you hear the phrase "New World Order" used, it is not in that Bush-1 sense, but rather referring to a Conspiracy Theory prevalent in the US in far right circles.
