  1. AHC : Earliest Communist/Socialist/Syndicalist/Far-Left Revolution

    With a POD of 1500, what is the earliest possible far-left revolution there can be ? Kudos for those whom can push it back to the 18th century. I know there were early forms of socialism called utopia, but it wasn't really revolutionary-esque. Would an 18th century far-left revolution happen ?

  7. AHC: A Social Europe

    Inspired by the current debates within the British left over the EU referendum and the idea of reforming the EU along social lines (easier said than done but let's save that for Chat), your challenge is to reform the EU along left-wing lines with no PoD before the founding of the ECSC. That is...
