Apocalypse then: The lessons of #violence and inequality through the ages

source: http://www.economist.com/news/books-and-arts/21717801-only-catastrophe-truly-reduces-inequality-according-historical-survey-lessons
Only four things, Mr #Scheidel argues, cause large-scale levelling. #Epidemics and #pandemics can do it, as the Black Death did when it changed the relative values of land and #labour in late medieval #Europe. So can the complete #collapse of whole states and economic systems, as at the end of the Tang dynasty in China and the disintegration of the western Roman #Empire. When everyone is pauperised, the rich lose most. Total #revolution, of the Russian or Chinese sort, fits the bill. So does the 20th-century sibling of such revolutions: the war of mass-mobilisation.

America is tired

https://sputniknews.com/columnists/201702011050247594-america-is-tired/ 'The US’s future happiness depends on the US elite finally recognising that a “weary Titan” is what the US has become, and that what it needs is to become a more ‘normal’ — as opposed to an ‘exceptional’ — country, thereby finally finding for itself some rest.' #america #tired #us #military #foreign #policy #war #social #economic #inequality #empire #society #intelligence #nsa #surveillance

Uncovering the brutal #truth about the British #empire

But some important records escaped the purges. One day in the spring of 1998, after months of often frustrating searches, she discovered a baby-blue folder that would become central to both her book and the Mau Mau #lawsuit. Stamped “secret”, it revealed a system for breaking recalcitrant detainees by isolating them, torturing them and forcing them to work. This was called the “dilution technique”. Britain’s Colonial Office had endorsed it. And, as Elkins would eventually learn, Gavaghan had developed the technique and put it into practice.
