republicanism

  1. Impact on republicanism in the US doesn't exist?

    Hello! Basically, my question is about what the impact of a failed/no American Revolution would have on the development of republican politics during the 19th and 20th centuries. Because you know, after the French Revolution failed, there was (apart from tiny Switzerland) still a big shining...
  2. How could the Levellers have taken over England during the English Civil War?

    It seems that the ideas they put forward were somewhat popular with the rank and file of the new model army (NMA) and that with some changes they could have taken over England. What I personally find very interesting about them are the ideas put forward in "An Agreement of the People". A...
  3. AHC: restore as many native monarchies abolished by foreign invasion as possible after independence

    if you have not been paying attention, many countries have lost their native monarchies to imperialism (which is why I find it odd that monarchists defend imperialism, British invasions alone ended more native monarchies then radical revolutionary republicanism ever did; in most cases...

    AHC: Partition/Devolution of France after the Napoleonic Wars

    What would it take for the allied powers in the Coalition against Revolutionary France to partition or at least weaken France in the same manner that Germany was after WW2 to prevent it from threatening the balance of power in Europe? What would be the Geopolitical implications of such an event...
  5. DBPC: Most countries republics?

    One thing I find very interesting is the fact that the predominance of monarchism has lasted so long. Granted, monarchs generally don't enjoy the kind of power they had in past centuries, but the monarchy remains the most common type of government by far. How plausible is it for most countries...
  6. DBWI: Republican Europe

    Right now Europe is home to 22 Monarchies, some were restored after WW2 and others after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Could Europe become more republicans with most of them disappearing?

    WI: The US Congress Elects the President

    So I was reading about the Constitutional Convention, and I was wondering, what if something more akin to the Virginia Plan was implemented? Where the President has mostly the same powers as OTL, but is elected by the legislature rather than more directly by the electoral college. Keep in mind...

    What effect does the collapse of the United States have on republicanism?

    I’ve seen a lot of discussion about the effect that a failed American Revolution would have on the development of republicanism and liberalism, typically arguing that these ideologies would ultimately be hurt or even delegitimized, but a discussion that I don’t think I’ve ever seen is what would...

    DBWI- Constitutional Monarchies weren't the norm?

    Recently, the passing of the King of France has restarted talks by some within the country to move towards the idea of France becoming a Republic and ditching the monarchy, which seems to have been gaining steam slowly over the last two decades due to scandals within the Royal Family and some of...

    Mexico's War of Reform

    So what would be a consequence had the Conservatives Mexican had won in the Reform War? And what would be the consequences of their victory? Would this in any way affect France's intervention of Mexico? Blue is conservative, Red is Liberals and white is Baja California being Baja California.

    Anaxios: A Discussion on a Modern Byzantium

    Let us imagine a modern Romanía. One that has endured the ages, yet commands not the world's stage. Let us imagine the Romans as a people stretching from Azerbaijan to Serbia. Let us imagine that much of history is similar to ours; the Turks, the crusades, the rise of Europe, the Renaissance...
  12. Republicanism Introduced Earlier On

    I've always found it interesting to see how the 19th and 20th century brought republicanism to many countries so quickly. What events or combination of events would have made most European nations republics, not necessarily democracies, earlier on? A lack of unifying religion? No Roman Empire...

    AHC reactionary Karl Marx

    On the wave of the communist Hitler, Socialist Mussolini and Social Democrat Mosley scenario's I came with a idea: What if Karl Marx was a "reactionary"? Since this term is to ample, in this certain case reactionary means someones that strongly wants the restoration of the old (pre napoleonic)...
