    South Korea to face a large anti-tax revolt

    This is funny. President Park Geun-hye got elected mostly because of her promise against raising taxes. Now she personally calls for a very big tax burden during a terrible economic downturn. This sounds like a whipped vote in Canadian terminology. There will be gigantic anti-tax protests in Seoul.

    Taiping Revolt

    How come it was so bloody? Is it really possible that 25-50 million people died in 1850-1864? How could so much death and destruction arise from a rebellion of a small sect, starting on a small scale. And all that without the advent of even semi-automatic gunfire and TNT based explosives.
