I think I've made it fairly clear that I absolutely adore alternate ideologies, and I'm fond of scenarios where they feature prominently. From what I've seen, there seems to be two general scenarios where alternate ideologies often come into play on this site:
- Multipolar Cold War settings, where the fractured nature of the international community seems to give breathing room to ideological positions that would be marginalized in a bipolar struggle. Two good examples are What Madness is This? and Separated at Birth, each of which has four or more power blocs jostling for supremacy.
- Completely alien historiography settings, where the ideological conflict is bipolar but is based on principles that are distinct from the OTL focus on economics. The front runner is Look to the West, where a Cold War drags on for a century based on a fundamental disagreement between universalism and cultural relativism. Although it doesn't feature a cold war as such Brave New World also features an alien value system, as the entire World State operates on a divide between happiness and unhappiness rather than good and evil.
