  1. Further Exploring the Draka Series

    I'm creating this thread to raise discussion topics, speculation, and questions about Stirling's Domination series that might not merit individual threads. Is it ever mentioned in the Draka books if there are any Jewish Citizens, excluding a handful of post-World War II refugees given Metic...
  2. The Pale Horse: The Northwest Montana Insurgency and its Aftermath (1987-2002)

    Does Rushdoony have a similar theology to OTL (ie Presbyterian theocracy)? The radicalization of the Grangelanders has parallels to both OTL US Mountain West which went from a progressive bastion supportive of the New Deal to an area notorious as a haven for the far right and white...
  3. Strom Thurmond Becomes President After 9/11

    Given the consensus seems to be that he would have immediately resigned due to considerations of age, how about a similar situation arising from a 1990s equivalent of 9-11 carried out either by an Al-Qaeda type organization (not necessarily the same one) or alternatively a far-right group? Given...
  4. The Pale Horse: The Northwest Montana Insurgency and its Aftermath (1987-2002)

    This is an incredible timeline. Love the combination of familiar political figures of 20th Century America and Middle American aesthetics/culture with a radically different political regime.
  5. Challenge: Have a Quasi-Fascist POTUS elected in 1932

    FDR was nothing like a dictator, right-wing libertarian mythology to the contrary.
  6. Was it surprising Argentina didn't become a decent size power or at least a dominant economy?

    Mostly lurking in this thread but I don't see how you can say South Korean government has been as incompetent as Argentina (at least post Syngman Rhee). Despite substantial corruption, economic policy has generally been much more competent (witness a liberal like Roh being willing to support a...
  7. Strom Thurmond Becomes President After 9/11

    In November 2000, Republican incumbent Slade Gorton narrowly defeats Maria Cantwell and wins another term as US Senator from Washington. As a result, Republicans retain a narrow Senate majority with Dick Cheney as the tie breaking vote when Jim Jeffords defects to the Democrats in the summer of...
  8. What if victorious Allies restore the Tokugawa Shogunate after WWII?

    The discontinuity between the Edo and Meiji periods in Japanese history is quite exaggerated. Not saying that Japanese modernization could have been delayed by contingent events, but there were reasons why Japan was much more fertile ground for modernization than much of the non-Western world...
  9. AHC: Maintain the "American School" of economics as America's dominant policy.

    Free trade alone isn't neoliberalism imo, if said trade agreements are designed to bolster your exports for instance. Japan and South Korea are good examples of this.
  10. Trying to Find Old Fallout Related Election Map

    I remember coming across a map some years ago that depicted an election in the New California Republic from the Fallout universe. The map showed the NCR divided into various states and described the political parties as well. I've used several different search terms, but came up with nothing. I...
  11. Could the U.S. have joined the Central Powers if Hughes won in 1916?

    No. Nearly every pro-war Republican such as TR wanted to join the war on the sides of the Allies, good Anglophiles they were.
  12. settlement of Korea or Taiwan by former samurai in the event of Japanese conquest in the 1870s

    There already was a fair amount of Japanese immigration to Korea and Taiwan OTL. The problem is that there huge enough native populations that the areas would stay heavily Japanese regardless of circumstances.
  13. Jim Jones as president of the USA, possible?

    An interesting what if is neither the expose nor Harvey Milk and George Moscone's assassinations (which took place 10 days apart IOTL) happening, resulting in Milk eventually mounting a candidacy for mayor of San Francisco in the 1980s as the first openly gay mayor of a major American city with...
