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.

@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.

comment Did the fairy craze overlap the UFO one?
I don't know if this has been studied, but it seems to me looking back on it that the "UFO phase" seemed to wax and wane almost precisely with Cold War tensions.

comment Is there evidence Muslim soldiers fought in the Continental Army?
The last two names at least seem to indicate parents steeped in Muslim culture rather than European. That of course doesn't mean the children personally believed anything in particular, but by that standard you can't claim all the rest were "Christian" either. So the names would be good enough for me.

I think you are confusing the concepts of legitimacy and legality

comment Countries which banned Ferdinand the bull?
The main Wikipedia says the Nazis burned it. That may be where he got that from, but of course being burned is different from being banned.

comment Was either side legally in the right in the Hundred Years War?
I think its possible to ask who had a better claim to the throne, but the concept of "legality" just does not belong here. There were no courts to appeal to, and all these families ultimately acquired their thrones in the first place by winning them in armed conflict.
