Odo,

Do you have no idea of what sort of grasslands and slight forest biome the Sahara had in the last ice age? It was a populated and fertile place. That's merely one glaring error and a good indication of just how much care and thought was put into this stupid collection of alleged "maps".

#14 what is the difference between a full and flawed democracy?

Odo,

The US has been defined as a flawed democracy for about 6 years now IIRC. There's a full report on it. A lot of it has to do with bribery of politicians being legal, and ramped up voter suppression activities.

The definitions are:

Full democracies are nations where civil liberties and fundamental political freedoms are not only respected but also reinforced by a political culture conducive to the thriving of democratic principles. These nations have a valid system of governmental checks and balances, an independent judiciary whose decisions are enforced, governments that function adequately, and diverse and independent media. These nations have only limited problems in democratic functioning

Flawed democracies are nations where elections are fair and free and basic civil liberties are honoured but may have issues (e.g. media freedom infringement and minor suppression of political opposition and critics). These nations have significant faults in other democratic aspects, including underdeveloped political culture, low levels of participation in politics, and issues in the functioning of governance

The distinction between a full and flawed democracy rests in whether your are a sheep-like subscriber to intellectual and academic frauds known as "critical" theory.

All the "critical"theories are mere renaming of "post-modern" intellectual and academic frauds which became too notorious for slippery logic and partisan views treated as the outcome of evenhanded inquiry and deliberation to still be treated as anything but the intellectual and academic frauds post-modernist theories plainly were. These trace back another step to primarily German and French academics who in the post-war era wanted to play fast and loose games with semantics. Some of their motive was apparently to argue the lack of genuine objective facts and meanings therefore excuses them from any allegations that they were Nazi collaborators, and that they were fellow travelers of Bolshevist programs of corroding societies prior to military conquest of them. These allegations were all together too obvious to deny.

Taking it back the final step, then, "critical theory"/post-modernist ideas essentially disguise and promote Leninist and Bolshevist policies, and do so under the disguise of being academic movements rather than naked subversive campaigns launched prior to military conquest of the targeted society. "Truth is whatever serves the revolution" is one of Lenin's more famous blunders that he is accorded, by some, of being a genius for saying. It lead to whoever were currently the best murderers in the revolution being able to suppress valid evolutionary theories in favor of party preferred ideas of evolution that were obvious psuedoscience, suppression of cybernetics as a useful mathematical discipline in automation and machine design at a time when the soviet ambitions were screaming for assistance of this sort, the prohibition of gently bent pipes enabling efficient fluid flow in favor of squared off corners and bends in all tolerably Marxist plumbing, etc. Lenin inflicted grave injury on the communist cause by saying "Truth is whatever serves the revolution", so present day advocates of this kind of subversion find ways to relabel the policy and inject into society in disguised ways. "Truths must be LIBERATORY" is a modern "critical theory" adage, which is basically a subtle rewording of Lenin's dictum that truth is whatever serves the revolution.

Sadly I'd love to go on at length, but this website doesn't permit sufficiently long comments.

#33 seems to be inacurate.

USA, and many other coutries, fertiliry rate is 1.7. That means each woman is having only, in the average, 1.7 kids. For a population to maintain its numbers, each woman needs to have 2.1 kids.
Hence, I doubt the population is going to increase all over the world

for all you utc freaks.) Never seen the sun at that time of day.

#14 It is a misguided ignorant personal opinion that the US is a flawed democracy. The US is a Constitutional Republic.

#5 - Meters ? Meters are measuring devices, such as a speed-o-meter or an electric meter ... so 1,000 of them means nothing as we don't know how big each meter is or if they are all, say, 200 millimetres high.
The word you should have used is metre, which is the base unit of length in the International System of Units.
Just because American people spell it differently doesn't mean the other 95% of people should.

Lucas,

Yeah, what do Americans know about measuring things? Like how many meters from here to the Moon? Just because they've been there doesn't mean they, uh, er, oh boy, I [email protected]#ked that up, didn't I?

Well, no matter! When it comes to speedometres, just because they lead the world in powerful vehicles doesn't mean, uh, er, ah, hmm, I seem to have messed that one up, too!

Again, no matter! I'm sure I'll think of something good in which the Americans don't lead the category in, and we'll apply that standard then! In the meantime, it's tea and crumpets time for the limp-wristed crowd, and they need help in lifting things to their dainty little faces. Toodle-oo!

Lucas,

Editor here. "Meter" is spelled two ways, depending on the editorial style the author is using. I suggest you stop obsessing over individual words and be grateful that most people know what you mean by "metre," a word that does not exist in US English.
