comment During the U.S. Prohibition, how did they get away with drinking alcohol?
Note: The source for most of this answer is my reading of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition. That book is highly recommended for anyone even remotely interested in Prohibition.

comment In which places of the UK did the Vikings/Scandinavians have most frequent contact or colonies?
954 was actually not the end of the story here. The Danes reconquered England multiple times after that. England had Danish kings from 1016 to 1042, and the last Anglo-Saxon king defeated another Scandinavian invasion force only three weeks before the Battle of Hastings.

comment Keynesian economics during his era
I think I could craft an answer about the economic criticism. However, by "political", you seem to be asking about criticism of Keynesian Economics from those who are relatively unlettered in economics. That could basically be any old schmoe on the street.

comment What evidence is there that English Political divisions from the 1600s are replicated in American politics today?
@Semaphore - I was worried the question was: Are the divisions similar, which is a question for the politics stack. However, the question seems to be "are the current divisions actually directly descended from the 1600's, which IMHO is a good question for this stack.
