comment Are there any information about history of Malta under Roman rule?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a broad ranging resource request, not a question.

So broad as to be sociology.

comment What happened to the wealth of the Rothschild banking family?
This appears to be unreferenced commentary, rather than an answer. While an answer from this analytical perspective would be welcome, this is not a historical answer.

comment How historically accurate was the movie “Charlie Wilson's War”?
The concept of "historical accuracy" is suspect, though I suspect you're using it as a proxy for "history as practiced by historians." Fictive films never meet the standards of historiography as works of history. In particular, this film's Whiggish moralising, simplification, and biographic fixation make the film's "accuracy" a trivial: of course not.

Questions on scholarly disciplines other than History are off-topic here, unless they also involve history in some fashion. Referencing "the past" is not history.

comment Why is literacy difficult?
Firstly, this question is a counterfactual that is unanswerable, largely because you're seeking to justify your own political ideas regarding the benefit of literacy. Secondly, this assumption, "when literacy was clearly highly beneficial?" is political and undemonstrated. Thirdly, to save this question you need to remove your politics, and ask about how people in the past used literacy. I suspect you're going to find that literacy was not high beneficial.

comment What was the typical range of travel of a Pennsylvanian resident for everyday life in the late 18th early 19th Century Pennsylvania?
As Semaphore notes the question needs work. You don't seem to have conducted basic research into social history of the late 18th century.
