Here are some one liners...
A Good Liberal Now, A Mean Liberal Later -- "The Prince" is published 5 years after the death of Machiavelli. I talk about liberalism, giving away goodies (the good liberal) and limiting the goodies later (the mean liberal).
Fewer "First Fruits" for Rome and Tax Freedom Day -- The Church tax is about 33% and is eating up the bishop's operating costs so the Reformation English Parliament limits the tax to around 1.65%. I also talk about Tax Freedom day and the problem with minorities and Social Security.
Pizarro and the Fallacy of the Noble Savage -- The Spaniards capture the Emperor of the Incas but if you think the Incas were innocent babes running tra-la through the woods, think again.
