It would be interesting. Poor Puerto Rico would be deprived its destiny of becoming the 51st state. Depends on how fast it happens. Keep in mind we were only at 48 by the conclusion of WW2. Yeah, that's a good point. Even so, I doubt a fully annexed Japan would beat Alaska and Hawaii to statehood. ...

Or not held competitions for how many civilians each soldier could decapitate. Or not done any of the other terrible warcrimes they committed that made those of their enemies pale in comparison. Winning a war is especially important when one's side has behaved like barbarians. Losing such a conflic...

Imagine having delegates from the British & French Empires sitting in a tribunal passing judgement on another country for "crimes against peace." Then they should have fought harder. Maybe then they would be at the tribunal passing judgement. Or not held competitions for how many civi...

It's really not hindsight when the Japanese already had border clashes (all of which they lost) with the Soviet Union, beginning as early as 1932. It was abundantly clear that the USSR was a hostile and technologically superior empire that would eventually engage in war with Japan. It would have be...

Franco, at least after the civil war was over and Germany was running wild in Europe, had the opportunity to take revenge. He could easily have taken Gibraltar and cut off access to the Mediterranean. Indeed, he even considered joining WWII on the side of the Germans if the Vichy French government ...

The goals were far-fetched and unreasonable. Maybe something the Japanese could achieve in two or three centuries. Not in the several years or decades they hoped (and pursued). As for support for Chiang and the Kuomintang, what of it? The West did the same thing for the Republicans during the Spani...

The last thing Japanese foreign policy could be described as is 'quite reasonable'. Japanese declarations of war from 1937 onwards were muddled, poorly planned and often completely random. For starters, Japan clearly misjudged the willingness of Chiang Kai-shek and the Kuomintang to resist them, be...

Approaching it from any international perspective other than liberalism, Japan's actions in the leadup to the Second World War make perfect sense, and whether they were deplorable or not makes no difference. There is of course morality in international affairs but under the international system of ...

It will help to reduce the number of divorces to some degree, as those same statistics showed that not all divorces occur as a result of infidelity, abuse or neglect. Naturally, it needs to be coupled with stronger disincentives for adultery (like public shaming) and more generic shifts in societal...

National stability takes precedence over fairness. Most divorce rates in the West are in the 40-50% range. That's too high, and causes far too much societal disorder. Oaths and vows need to be taken seriously; especially marital ones. Abolishing no-fault divorce won't do anything to reduce that, as...

Also no-fault divorce should be allowed, even if it should be frowned upon. I agree the results are often terrible, but it is still unfair to legally require two people who do not want to be in a relationship together to remain in a relationship. National stability takes precedence over fairness. M...

It's focused on divorce, which is an issue under the purview of right wing discussion. Catholicism was brought up, in this case, because some people like to swipe at the Church whenever Catholics open their mouths here. Sixty percent of divorces had infidelity cited as the rationale behind the divo...

The Renaissance wasn't a decline in sincere Christianity, some of our best stuff comes from that era. Some people just want something to blame for the things they don't like in the present. But I don't think people in the Middle Ages were any more holy than in the Renaissance. The Renaissance saw t...

No, there really is only so much money. Provided there's no actual economic growth (which at the moment, there isn't), printing more money just inflates and devalues what money is already in circulation. It is not a solution, and just makes things worse. Granted, a government can do other things li...

Calling it illegitimate is redundant. England had just experienced two civil wars. What few de jure administrative procedures remained were weak and irrelevant. Legitimacy by this point in English history was in the hands of whoever could maintain some form of order, and neither the Royalists nor t...
