    "Our Struggle": What If Hitler Had Been a Communist?

    Nah but they care about PR costs.

    "Our Struggle": What If Hitler Had Been a Communist?

    Also, the comintern was historically much better at exploiting social angles in the intelligence department, with the US mostly catching up thanks to technological advantage. As for the bomb, probably aim at a military/naval base?

    Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

    Kemalism is a good comparison for how Long would probably rule if unimpeded yeah. Authoritarian modernizer clothed in the trappings of liberal democracy. South Korea, Taiwan or Singapore would probably be good inspirations too.

    Fear Nothing But God: A Graphical History

    If you want opinions on leftist politics, I'll be around. That's all I do x'D 50 years isn't really that much time when you consider this is basically taking a wrecking ball to the societal conception of gender prevalent in our societies, and I expect, in any western one without a POD much...

    Fear Nothing But God: A Graphical History

    That's great. The development of "state socialist" (as Marx and Engels put it, I believe) programs was a big loss for the left. Usually it just ends up being collectivization of the costs while the capitalists keep running with the profits and it forces government onto the workers in the same...

    Fear Nothing But God: A Graphical History

    Trying to map the parties onto modern movements: - the Levellers seem to be some kind of traditional center left party, that absorbed the left as it became more moderate, and thus has a Digger wing? Progressive and green values and some intervention in the economy, but probably only just - the...

    Fear Nothing But God: A Graphical History

    Yeah that's what I understood of their ideologies too. i wonder if we'll see more secular interpretations of them emerge with time, though. So Anglican pope in Canterbury? x'D Though it's probably closer to patriarchs than the pope, now that I think about it.

    Fear Nothing But God: A Graphical History

    Does this mean Digger involvement in the government? They're the faction I'd trust the most here. Though the Levellers don't look half bad for the era. The Diggers not being targeted and eliminated by the other factions is going to have consequences for the development of leftist ideas. I wonder...

    Green Revolution on the Golden Gate

    I don't know how I feel about the mix of green capitalist and communist figures in the green party. It feels like they'd have trouble deciding on a program if they tried. It's going to be interesting once they have more seats.

    Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

    I wouldn't mind some events to talk about local level representatives of different ideologies. I just don't buy them having the opening to win power over the whole country in the wake of the revolution.

    Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

    The west coast in fact had a lot of labour activity OTL and the fact the PSA sweep that under the rug should probably lead to it bubbling up all at once when the CSA walks in. I didn't really think about how they'd run territory they had to reconquer late in the war though, so that's my bad. I...

    Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

    Would you vote to bring back slavery or feudalism? This is how bringing back capitalism would go in a functional socialist society. The level of coercion is about as high as the 14th amendment. ;) It's probably more a case of all the people who oppose the new socialist system not being...

    Pro Algerian junta causing anti Algeria sentiment at home checks out. Army elements in Algeria defecting to keep it under French minority checks out. Yeah I can buy that. They'd probably be a pariah state though.

    Map Thread XIX

    Oh hello there darkest part of our national history x'D This is extremely cursed and I'd like it to highlight the amount of ethnic cleansing it likely involved a bit more. How did it end up independent from France? Did the metropole grow bored of supporting the Pied Noirs' rule? Because...

    Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

    One way I could see a reconquest working (maybe) would be Mosley fucking up a lot and the royalists promising to restore a lot of the good parts of the union he destroyed. But of course they're royalists surrounded by a crowd of expropriated bourgeois and nobles. It's never happening. Instead a...

    Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

    The whole reconquest thing is a bit of a joke honestly. It should be a long term quagmire that require serious compromises if you want to bring peace back to the islands, at best.

    At least make the flag background red :biggrin: Half joking but I'm now thinking the EU stars would look pretty good in red.

    Another America: A Map and Graphic Setting

    Oh my, cargo cult theocracy? That's original. I've heard about those as a metaphor for people mindlessly applying methods, but taking it to power in a recognized nation is something else. Having it backed by shady organizations who can occasionally drop "cargo" to confirm its precepts makes sense.

    Another America: A Map and Graphic Setting

    Independent Maori country? Oh my that is cool. Also, is that native Australian script on New Holland and Marege? What's up with that Vemerana theocracy? I think a neat addition could be religious demographic information, but this is pretty good already!
