comment How Did The US Justice System Lose Sight of Intent?
Question confuses commenters who view it as relating to criminal intent, instead of "intent" in jurisprudence. Needs to be fixed before answerable.

comment When did the socialist movement start becoming noteworthy in Russian history?
While the first part of the question is very answerable here, the second part isn't. We don't do recommendations. But let's take this as an appeal that people cite their answers :).

comment Examples of defense without walls
A number of those defenders who lost particular battles advanced and eventually achieved their strategic aims by inviting or being prepared for urban assaults. The US example Comintern cites recognises a small but non-zero number of "wins" in the immediate battle by defending forces. But yes, the city tends to be lost and destroyed.

comment How can scholarly non-historians locate and properly use scholarly histories?
I'm assuming a general scholarly competence with library and information systems, this isn't aimed at non-scholars, but I will think more on your point. The other side of this is that the library science changes in terms of search and indexing systems relatively rapidly.

comment How can scholarly non-historians locate and properly use scholarly histories?
Non-historians don't study history. The question relates to experts in other fields desiring reliable accounts of the past for use in their own fields, for example, the mathematician wishing to illustrate a point in mathematical scholarship with reference to Abelard and Heloise.

comment Why hasn't Russia maintained significant numbers of Aircraft carriers?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a counter-factual incapable of historical evaluation. Ask instead about what Soviet naval strategy was.
