So is it Ok? If I post memes in response to something. And did the previous post in Hindsight break rules
The post very much looked like exactly when I implied, namely that you had two pitchers of beer with an double anchovies pizza a couple hours before you posted. That or straight up trolling by a hacked account.

Memes are always a "hit or miss".

When did my story turn into a slugging match between mods and some guy who wanted to spam unfunny memes
Stand down.

This is far from a slugging match.

In fact the only person who see=ms to be looking for a fight right now is you.
Not Mali but Ghana, or specifically Nkrumah but why would they sit on it? The US and IMF completely screwed Ghana over.
Basically no Ghana wouldn’t discover it, Mali has a wide internal security apparatus so they would discover it but would hide or destroy said evidence.

Yeah Mali will have not really much involvement with the IMF it’s a super corrupt and damaging institution as is foreign aid in general. Ghana won’t have as much of a reason, Mali is going to be propping up and integrating their economy into Mali so they’d need less foreign capital.
Do the Malian leaders have any official stance towards the emerging Eurocommunism movement?
None that’s far out of Mali’s wheel house to care. Realistically our economy is probably just starting to rebound after cooperativization and starting industrialization. After all this moving and shaking economically, Mali is uninterested in European meddling.
Part 9: Burgundy Revolution 1974-1975
December 31st 1974-January 15th 1975

Burgundy Revolution

Following the slow progress the government had made at its promised democratization, and increasing conflict between Tuareg nomads and more settled groups and businesses within the area, groups began to coalesce, planning the final removal of the Triumvirate and shatter authoritarian power over Mali.

This coup would; however, not be weak and from one branch of power of government or military which was common within other coups. This coup would be united with military, trade unions, ISB, and many reformist politicians. They would all wear burgundy arm bands as they marched on the capital city of Ouagadougou, during New Years and the 24th Party Congress. As they celebrated and had meetings, the coup would strike.

Firstly, The National Trade Unions Congress. The NTUC was a United federation of trade unions representing all the various unions within Mali from all different industries throughout the nation. Trade Unions had been made illegal, and were heavily persecuted by the government, who believed only their workers councils and planning committees could be the true form of worker representation. Head of the National Trade Unions Congress was Jean-Mathias Liliou. The National Trade Union Congress pursued a general policy of transforming the Malian economy, making the trade unions into one unified body who would help democratically plan the aspects of the economy necessary. Thus each Union chosen by its workers would help transform the inefficient central planning into one based upon worker input and star based building.

The majority of the Internal Security Bureau would back the coup, including its leader Sangoulé Lamizana. While the ISB had benefited greatly from the rule of the Triumvirate it’s leaders could see the writing on the wall. In a bid to retain not only the existence of the organization, but also their operational capacity, and of the National Gendarmerie, the ISB backed the coup. Lamizana would favor fair cooperativization and the formation of a democratic state.

The military would also significantly back the Malian revolution. The Young Officers Clique led by 26 year old Thomas Sankara, would spearhead the Revolution. Sankara had served with distinction during the Third Casamance Conflict and became an Officer during the Tuareg Conflict. He and other young officers formed a council and began plotting a coup to bring down the triumvirate once and for all. Two members had already collapsed into irrelevance and there was now only one more they needed to strike. The military wished to transform the state into a council democracy with open elections and recallable delegates.

Finally, many independent and reform minded politicians backed the coup. Various politicians had grown increasingly aware the Triumvirate and party were unstable and thus wished to formulate and exit strategy. Some were opportunists who wanted a job in the new government, while some actually reform minded. These internal politicians would be instrumental in the smooth transition of government.

December 31st 1974: The Malian Black Army reassigning coup backing units to “guard” the congress on the day the coup was planned. More loyal forces were disarmed or reassigned to new posts, then they were split and broken up. The conspirators would don their armbands to signify their part. Access in and out of the city is cut off by the conspirators.

ISB units capture nearby radio towers and broadcast as if everything is normal. Ouagadougou is now completely cut off from the outside, and no one else in the nation is any wiser.

January 1st 1975: The National Trade Union Congress would organize a general strike within Ouagadougou. This would tie down police forces for the time being, preventing their meddling in the coup. This would have the added caveat of making the Party more aware of something being amiss within the city; however, the ISB assured them it was just protests and would be dealt with by the local police.

January 2nd 1975: Sankara and the military storm the Party Congress Hall, capturing thousands of party members including Senghor, Coulibaly, and Keïta. Sankara and his clique of officers would declare the Triumvirate fully abolished, and the end of dictatorial authoritarianism within Mali. Keïta to his credit resigned, and turned the position over to Sankara to with as he wished.

January 3rd - 15th 1975: Slowly news started to be released across Mali that the party had fallen, and a new government had risen over Mali. Thomas Sankara would be named Chairman of Mali for a 5 year term. The rest of the government would be opened up to civilian voting with civilians voting for their local workers council and trade union members, these unions and councils would elect county, SR, and Federal Council members who would remain recallable at any point. All parties would be banned, and a more loose factional system would slowly develop. Thus the democratic rule over Mali began. The Burgundy Revolution had shattered and imprisoned the old party.
The irony of a Communist country more representative of it's people than democracies... Well, we'll see how faithful the military remains to this Democracy from under!
Part 10: General Overview of the Government
General Makeup of the Malian Federation

Loose Overview:
All workers within a given workplace industry join into one workers council. This council elects one or more representatives to the city council. This sends leaders to the, County, then State Council, and finally the national councils. All council members are recallable. Economically the councils would interact through a market, while any necessary planning would be done through trade unions.

Local Councils: The local civilian populace all work in and have control over their individual workplaces. These workplaces are run by elected representatives in a cooperative economy. Each workplace is grouped together with all other workplaces of that same type and form a workers council. These councils help mediate inter-business disputes and select a representative to represent the workers within a city/village council which has members from every industry. Local city councils handled their general areas, passing city ordinance, jails, etc. City councils would then send representatives to the Commune Council.

Note: Despite being in charge of organization townhall democracy is a common practice in most towns and villages, with people voting yes or no on referendums to pass major laws.

Commune Council: The Commune Council were subdistricts of the SR/State. These communal councils mainly helped smooth over the functioning, and communication of local city councils, as well as enforce state law, and taxes. The Communal Council would also select a member or multiple to represent the commune in the SR Council.

SR Council: The SR Council or Socialist Republics Council was the 2nd highest body of legislature within the Federation. Made up of members from all the various communes the SR Council handled redistribution wealth, taxation, implementation of laws, creation of constitutionally non contradictory laws, station state militia, education, infrastructure, and deal with inner state trade. SR Councils also send members to the Federal Council.

Federal Council: The Federal Workers Council is a 500 member council of representatives sent directly by states with a fixed number allotted to each state. The Federal Council have the rights of defense of the federation, electing a Chairman of the Executive Office, making laws, and confirming court members. The Federal Council is headed by a Premier.

Now onto the next area; economics within this new Federation:

The Malian economy is a combination of market socialism, and democratic planning.
Markets are completely made up of state enterprise, small owned business and workers cooperatives. These state enterprises mainly focus around providing and ensuring cheaper services through subsidies or direct federal businesses. Agriculture while owned by its workers through supply and marketing cooperatives often receives subsidies, or cheap loans through Credit Unions to keep prices at a reasonable level and help modernization. Industrially most businesses are just worker owned with small enterprises being allowed for workplaces of less than 10 people. Taxes would be levied at a flat rate upon income and worker dividends.

For democratic planning, the National Trade Union Congress would be used. Local trade unions would elect members to State and Federal Union Congresses. These congresses would be separate from the legislature and would help draft and implement 5 year plans, control over federal businesses, and use over government lands for economic purposes.

Finally a look to the Executive.

The Executive Branch:
Headed by the Chairman of the Executive, and is tasked with the enforcement of Federal law and executive law, as well as upholding socialism. Every chairman serves a 5 year renewable term unless removed by the Federal Council, and Economic Congress. The Chairman is granted numerous powers including ability to declare national emergency, ability to issue executive edicts that must be later upheld or struck down by the Council. The Executive is also tasked with electing judges, and ministers though these too may be struck down by Federal Council vote. The executive is removable by Federal and Economic vote or National referendum; however such referendums may be used to keep a chairman in power against council vote.

Afterthought: Hello I forgot to post this part earlier but this will be overall how the Federation works now. Besides that, how is everyone enjoying the timeline? I’m having a good time writing it for you all. Anyways goodnight and be good to eachother.

Surprisingly the military will, it’s the hotbed of Revolutionary fervor
Part 11: Final Act of Authority

A Final Act of Authoritarianism

The new government didn’t want to kill or hurt these men. Were they truly any different from the triumvirate if they sent men to their deaths or imprisonment just for following orders, for taking a job? Yet, Sankara and his clique knew, these men must die so that Mali could live.

Over 12,000 people had been arrested in connection to various crimes or ties to the Triumvirate. These crimes ranged from simple book keeping, and administration, to field executions and ordering the deaths of entire villages.

The trials would take place in Ouagadougou before the impromptu Revolutionary People’s Tribunal, headed by Aboubakar Sangoulé Lamizana and several high ranking ISB agents, and judges. The court found a little less than a few dozen of the 12,000 to be rehabilitated. By rehabilitated it referred to having either aided the revolution, or having not directly aided or abetted any crimes perpetrated by Triumvirate or its government. A few hundred of the government were those that had perpetuated the oppression of the peoples “revolutionary will” yet this was not found to be enough to be executable. On this list included one Triumvirate member the only in high government to survive: Leopold Sénghor, who’s ideological foundations and writings had been instrumental in developing Malian thought. He could not be executed due to his national ideological importance so he was given 16 months in house arrest. Finally, over 2/3rds of the 12,000 tried were sentenced to immediate execution. Included upon this list were Modibo Keïta and Daniel Coulibaly. This became the most bitter pill for more moderates like Sankara to swallow, yet they rationalized it in a widely publicized piece, with Sankara calling it “a final act of authoritarianism.”

Somewhere outside of Gao, Mali 1975

Modibo Keïta sat his hands tied behind his back as a truck continued to bounce down the road. He had a bag over his head, yet he knew the men he was sitting with. 7-8 of his personal entourage and even more in a truck behind them. Keïta sighed and looked down at the bed of the truck. He wondered if he had done enough to save the nation? Had his acts of despotism, cruelty, and barbarity been necessary for the revolution to be successful in Mali? He certainly believed so, he had campaigned hard on it, his defense in the trial had tried desperately to paint him as a man who did what was necessary to secure a strong bedrock in which the current state could be built upon. How could people with no framework of modern nationhood, Socialist economics, and basic literacy truly be welded into a socialist nation without a strong fist? Yet here he now sat, the prosecution unconvinced, many of them had learned to read from government liquidation centers, and were taught how to run a cooperative from party officials, yet they still ruled him guilty. Keïta’s mind wandered back to what went wrong. It was the Casamance Conflicts, the brutal villigization campaigns, and the Tuareg agreement falling apart. Though, he had not been responsible for these crimes he had tried to implement reforms, and the last years of his rule he ended the conflicts. But, it was too little too late, the Malian people had lived under his rule even if he didn’t wield all the power for 25 years, and he bore the collective guilt.

The trucks reached its spot out in the desert. Keïta was unloaded with him and the other 24 individuals and brought to a small pit. There a imam and a priest read them their last rights, and each man was pushed forwards. Some cried for mercy, some cursed Mali, others pleaded to Keïta for help, yet they all fell the same, a single gunshot to the skull. Then it was finally Keïta’s turn. He straightened his outfit, and removed his cap. He stared up to the sky, looked to his captors, and when asked if he had any final words, said “Why?”

A Prison in Gao, Mali 1975

Daniel Coulibaly had always been an angry man. He had grew up mean, and led a revolution of fury and anger against the European oppressors. After languishing under the idealist Sénghor, Coulibaly finally secured power. He brutally crushed those who opposed Mali, whether it be civilians in Senegal, or Nomads in Azawad. All who refused to adopt and become Malian didn’t deserve the right to live. He had built strong organizations for a strong people, the Ultranationalist-Socialist Dream. Despite this all, the lazy and weak won. Outmaneuvered in Congress by fat bureaucrats, and then arrested by disloyal traitorous children, Coulibaly and his Ultranationalist supporters were found guilty and sentenced to death.

As his trial approached the enraged Coulibaly furiously wrote, swore and screamed at anyone who would listen. When the day finally came and he was dragged into Gao’s town square to be hung, he spit in the executioners face, and yelled “To Hell With Mali” as his final words. The noose was too short and he thrashed upon the rope for 10 minutes before falling limp. The Beast of Mali had died as he lived, angry and thrashing against the tides of history.

With the death of these men came the end of Mali’s triumvirate period, for better or for worse there was no turning back now, the doors to authority, and the doors to dictatorship had been clamped shut, now if Mali would fall or stand would be decided by the people.
