  1. AHQ: USSR Secession Article Legitimate, Who Leaves and When?

    Article 17 of the 1936 Soviet Constitution allows Union Republics (Ukrainian SSR, Georgian SSR, etc...) to secede from the USSR legally if they so choose. The issue is despite the government being a federation, the party would in practice never allow such dissent to take place. Republics like...

    Communist Germany 1919 and a stronger Comintern.

    In 1919, thanks to better preparation along with a more divisive Ebert government, the Spartacists seize power in Berlin and bring about a Soviet-style socialist republic in Germany. Of course, the German reds will fight a civil war in Germany against anti-communist factions but for the sake of...

    AHC: Make The CPUSA as relevant as the OTL Libertarian Party

    So your challenge here is with a PoD after 1939, come up with a way where the Communist Party USA instead of basically becoming irrelevant even compared to the rest of the extremely marginalized American Far Left ends up growing to the point where it's comparable to the OTL Libertarian Party...

    Threadmarks: Trotsky’s Ascent

    From “Permanent Revolution: A History of Trotsky’s Russia” by Pavel Nikolayevsky When Karl Marx first penned “Das Kapital”, he had no idea what monsters he would inspire. While it is reasonable to believe that Marx had good intentions at heart, his teachings would become the basis for one of...

    The West (and the Rest) is Red - A Map and Wikibox Timeline
    Threadmarks: Preface

    PREFACE This is a new TL that I have in the works, which will be told by maps (Making Qbam/Mbam maps is what I crave) and wikiboxes, which is why I put my TL here. Also, I didn't feel like going through the effort to do nitty-gritty research in order for this TL to be in the post-1900s section...

    AHC: Socialism in Interwar Africa

    I've been looking into socialist movements during the interwar era and can't find much on it's influence in Africa.

    If not Russia, who could've been the first Communist State?

    As we know, Russia was the first constitutionally communist state, forming the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, that would become the Soviet Union with other Soviet Republics. (Sorry Paris Commune, you actually had to win). However, some had said that without hindsight, Russia was...
  9. New Afrika State: What if black nationalism created a black majority 51st US state?

    This is a scenario that is not meant to be entirely realistic. It is also not meant to portray MLK as anything other than a strong and great man. This scenario takes place in a world where Dr. King’s beliefs were not as strong as they were in our world. He is, in this scenario, less able to...

    How Plausible is the rise of Socialism/Marxism/Communism in the CSA?

    This idea seems like a neat idea, that came from the Alternate History Writer, Harry Turtledove: The rise of Communism in the CSA, where in Southern Victory, black communists rosed against the Confederates during the Great War. So, this got me thinking, how plausible for...

    Ultra-Evil USSR

    Founded by a movement predisposed towards terror and social engineering from the very beginning, the Soviet Union consistently ranked as one of the most repressive, most authoritarian, and—ironically—most unequal regimes of the twentieth century. In addition to state-sponsored mass killing and...

    African Yugoslavia: Redux Edition
    Threadmarks: Chapter 0: Background

    “While In our present day we resent Paris I still must remember what it gave me. I learned of Marxism, and socialism in underground reading groups, and I dreamed of the world to be built in Africa. I dreamt of peace, and I dreamt of close ties to France, yet when I returned home I was shaken to...
  13. How many countries could remain communist after the end of the cold war?

    Right now, there are only a hand full of self-declared "Marxist-Leninist" states that remain after the end of the cold war: China, Vietnam, Laos, and Cuba. This has remained the case since the end of the cold war and especially following the collapse of the Soviet Union. However, is there any...

    Communism without Stalin

    Seeing how Stalin seems to have become the face of communism amongst average Americans, my question is what direction would Communism go down if Stalin never came to power? This isn't just referring to the USSR, but Communist movements across the world. How would, say, Chinese Communism be...

    Historical USSR Expansion PoDs?

    Does anyone know about (or even have a list of) potential, historical PoDs when the borders of the Soviet Union proper (like Union Republics, not puppets) could have been expanded? Whether this means fully integrating puppets or annexing new territory (e.g., Manchuria?), it doesn't matter. It's...
  16. Communist Italy After 1918

    POD any time after 1918. What are some possibilities to make Italy communist?
  17. What if there was no communist or socialist rule or parties during the 19th and 20th centuries?

    If that were true the. There would not be any Soviet Union or Cold War. However in order for this to happen the lower classes would need to be satisfied with the capitalist system. Workplace conditions would need to be improved and there would need to be far less economic exploitation of the...

    Basically, what if the anarchists against all odds won the spanish civil war, what would it look like? What would Spain, or maybe even Catalonia look like?
  19. What if Patrice Lumumba survived and ended up as president of the Congo?

    I challenge you to write an ucronia where Lumumba survives and becomes president of the Congo. Would he alienate himself with the eastern bloc? If so, would you support socialist movements? Would the Soviet Union be your main buyer of uranium? Or maybe Lumumba would be a Gaddafi in terms of...
