comment Why did wheat become the dominant food culture?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the question is both too broad and primarily opinion based. It asks for a hypothetical speculative comparison stripped of any historical content.

comment Why have some territorial annexations been rejected by the international community?
Your question needs to be a hell of a lot tighter and not ask "why" questions of states in general, since this requires a political theory in the form of political science. There are at least three questions in your examples, and post-UN is way too broad for a single question, let alone post-Westphalia.

comment Would Plutarch be considered a historian by modern standards?
@jamesqf there's a lot of professional credit for historians in detecting attempts to mislead or falsify on the part of other historians. Historiography as a social process of making ideas is quite doubtful of the ideas it produces.
