comment What is the average price, in silver, for a loaf of bread through history?
1) It is obviously "all of it." 2) I have amended the answer. 3) A society where bread isn't consumed as a commodity won't have a stable price. Athens was always its hinterland, Rome was always the latifunda and Egyptian fields.

comment Did the USSR use trotskyism as a bogeyman in the post Stalin period?
Zinoviev was rehabilitated in the 1980s also: infoplease.com/encyclopedia/people/… as was Kamenev: russiapedia.rt.com/prominent-russians/politics-and-society/… . Furr (2) claims Trotsky and Sedov alone were the keys not rehabilitated. ( clogic.eserver.org/2009/Furr.pdf ). There's a lot to doubt in Furr's analysis, but not in his sourced narratives.

You might want to give references, because your claims are wrong in at least one fact: articles.latimes.com/1988-07-10/news/mn-9457_1_josef-stalin

Neither of the types of account you list are "history," the first once was, the second never has been.
