#2 You were certainly busy with this one, Doc.
But re. the naked human pyramids I somehow always end up thinking of the pyramids of 10,000 skulls some ancient conqueror used to build at the entrance to cities that opposed him - it was intended to discourage the others.

#5 -- and our world will be as unequal and unjust as ever.
Because living in the longest period of peace in Central Europe since the collapse of the Roman Empire hasn't been anywhere near utopia, but it's been a long way from the unending destructive fratricidal conflicts that filled over a millennium in between. Yeah, those were fun times of equality and justice. /sarc off

#9 Dr. Steve, I'd normally try to think up some snark of my own, but you really haven't left me anything to work with.

#10 It is easier to critique than it is to build. That his how you spot a Socialist at first site. Always complaining, rarely with any useful suggestions other than pointing fingers at others.

#11 I remember that conqueror Glenmore.
Something about stacking shackled human bodies then covering them with plaster. Quicker than digging a mass grave in rocky ground. A task for his new slaves, to show them their end. It left a monument to his passing still visible today.
When I don't need it the name will come to me.

#12 But, in the West, Obama can get away with acts that Bush would rightly be pilloried for.
Well Champ...there goes the British Gay Socialist vote.

#13 the Pew Research Center found just 7 per cent of Pakistanis had a positive view of Obama, the same percentage as Bush had just before he left office.
Except bush did it in eight yearsand Obama did it in less than 4.
