Explain the AH Quote

"Everything they told us about communism proved to be a lie. Unfortunately, everything they told us about capitalism proved to be true."

The lamentations coming from Chuck Norris on why he and various other high-profile conservatives have abandoned President Reagan during the Second American Depression, which saw Reagonomis plunge the nation into economic troubles. The "they" was referring to the Democratic Socialists of America, who were invited by Norris and the others to debate, with Norris hoping to show the problems of socialist theory. Instead, many of their points rang with the public and their criticisms of capitalism absolutely true.

"When John Wayne admits that socialists were right about practically everything, you know that's how screwed up things were."

"When John Wayne admits that socialists were right about practically everything, you know that's how screwed up things were."
A half-joking comment from John Wayne's doctor regarding the politician's delirious state after the assassination attempt on his life. Having been a staunchly right wing actor until the late 60s when he transitioned into politics, he maintained his right wing affiliations until the assassination attempt during the 1980 Republican primaries by a Panamanian Nationalist. He recovered, but lost in the primaries to Russel Long, who ultimately set the tone for the decade with "Longnomics".

"What do you mean, the president is ill? Wait, what? What do you mean he just grew a third arm!"
 
“Orwellion Market Liberalism the Dominant Ideoligy of The Republican Party a leading rightist political party”
The title of a somewhat tongue-in-cheek book by Hillary Clinton that was published following the realignment of the Republican and Democrat parties along with the rise of the Reform Party.

Following the disasterous reign of President Reagan (1976 -1980) due to economic concerns and mishandling Iran, the Republican party suffered heavy losses and the supposed second wave of neoconservatism was instead torn to in-fighting. The Democrats would win heavily under President Mo Udall from 1980-1987, where he would resign and Vice President Reubin Askew would oversee the continuation of "Second New Deal" policies from 1987-1996 (he was permitted to run twice due to serving less than two years in Udall's second term after his resignation and then death in 1990.) After 16 years of progressive policies, people sought change and Askew's victory cemented the Second New Dealers' position within the party.

The people cast out, the so-called neoliberals, divided between the Reform Party formed by Ross Perot or joined the Republicans and aligning with the Rockefeller Republicans. The book in question was written to criticize the promotion of ad-based disinformaton acts, public manipulation and economic deregulation employed by the Republicans. Many believed this led to Reform Party candidate Bill Clinton's problems within the 1996 election against new Republican president John Kasich (1996-2004).

"In retrospect, it made sense that Ross Perot did not choose Donald Trump as his running mate for the Reform Party, given his shady history. However, who expected for him to choose Ralph Nader? I mean, Perot/Nader did win in 1996 and 2000, but still..."

A Political Commentator remarking on the perot presidency in particular his decission to choose Nader as his VP. The election of perot saw the rise of the reform party as a major political force with politicians from all accross the political spectrum within the party leadership.

'Everytime the new girls come, I smile to them. Ask them what they like, what they want to do, that sort of thing. I do that because I know in a few short hours, I'll be the one walking them into the grinder myself. It's a parade of new meat, marching into the maw of a merciless machine. Then they die, they all are, and only I'll be left everytime.

Sometimes i want to tell them, "Stop . Don't join me. We walk into hell and I'm the only one who comes back out." And I can't. If I says no, the brass transfers me away and my replacement is someone who'll sent them to the chopping block without a word.

So I carry on. And I talk to them. Because I don't want their last moments to be spent in gunfire and desperate, frightened silent. As for me, well, it's a different matter. I'll have their screams to keep me company. Forever. '

“The CIA was given the Phillipines by Douglas Macarthur. Today the nation has 1947 nukes”
A repot on how President Douglas McArthur used his wartime credentials to run for president and let the CIA used the Philippines for their headquarters in espionage over in Asia as well as the placement of various nuclear detontation devices. While indeed the Philippines has many nukes leftover from the program, most are in name only as maniny have been decaying and there is a vote to dismantle most and use them in power plants. Additionally, the action from MacArthur led to him being successfully impeached and kicked out, especially for covering up Japanese war crimes and attempting to instigate a war.

""This is a case of mental retardation, which has nothing to do with Djinn"
Comment by Ottoman news anchor Hana Karwan to Mishari Al Saud III about her son Muhammad. Every since Kemal Ataturk, first president of the Ottoman Federation, declared that his country would be secular and welcoming to all people, whether Sunni, Shia, Sufi, or even non-Muslim, the Saud family had been promulgating Wahhabist theology, aided in large part by the wealth generated from Saudi Aramco, the Ottoman's chief oil producer. Among these beliefs were a flat Earth, massive western conspiracies, and a distrust in medical science, to which Hana had been responding.

A quote by a noted philosopher about the Information Age and the rapid development of telecommunications around the world. He wondered about the dangers of rapid, uncontrolled development of technology as indicated by the rise of cybercrimes and hacking incidents. It is from the book, Little Star Wars.

"Emil Maurice, I understand you said you were forced to do by Lazar Kaganovich and Lavrentiy Beria, as well being discriminated on basis of your race and religion. This, however, does not mean your actions during the Stalinist occupation of France is exonerated. In the poem Inferno, Dante wrote that warmongers, plunderers, tyrants and murderers were placed in a boiling pool of blood with the centaurs shooting arrows at the damned that try to escape the pool.

In your command as the commander of the destruction battalions during Operation Yekaterina - you were responsible for ordering the massacres against German prisoners in internment camps, originally built by the Charles Maurras regime. Camp des Milles, a camp notorious for its large firepits that incinerated piles of corpses executed by the NKVD and its collaborators. The last thing you said on the last days of the war was: 'It is cleansed of the mad brute,'

You were responsible for abducting thousands of French children to be indoctrinated into Stalinism and trained to commit and assist atrocities. Does these names remind of something? Xavier? Olympia? Nguyen? They were still children yet they were responsible for tattling out thousands of French resistance members and Maurras regime personnel. Albertine? Worked on burning thousands of corpses alongside other girls. Many of them are still undergoing deprogramming and find themselves difficult to reintegrate in peacetime.

And there's the most appalling aspect: the systematic abduction of French females, regardless of age. Thousands were vanished the NKVD without a trace, placed into trains that went nowhere. When the Allies liberated Germany, they found Ravensbruck and its prisoners. I have no need to speak of it.

My final verdict - the International Military Tribunal sentences you to death by hanging."

A line centering on Emil Maurice, a Nazi turned forced Stalinist collaborator on a piece of alternate history show regarding Stalin becoming a "Nationalist Bolshevik" and warring over onto Europe. The show, known as "The Iron Vohzd" was deemed very controversial, due to maintaining the support of the Reagan Administration (including tax write-offs) and was confirmed to have been part of their attempt at prolonging the Cold War and smearing the Soviet Union. While popular (in a shock value sort of way) if divisive in the 1980s, it would come to be universally condemned for being historically inaccurate propaganda by the 1990s with most of the creative heads disowning it and many actors having pooled money to have copies destroyed.

The reveal of the Reagan Administration's usage of propaganda purposes for it led to the vicious loss of George HW Bush and the Republicans in 1988 to Democrat President Gary Hart, who condemned the show. This also led to the fracturing of Hollywood regarding political alliances as some headed elsewhere, very notably would be in Georgia as many new talent, especially those of color, would be backed up by Ted Turner, to where "Turnerville" would become a colloquial name for the area. Other effects including being a factor in the bankrupcy of Rupert Murdoch, who had to cancel his plans for a "conservative news outlet", due to being a prominent funder of the show.

Part of the introduction of A Caucasian Miracle, which details the successes of the Socialist Union of the Caucasus. This nation was seen to have even less unity than Yugoslavia due to the lack of commonality between the ethnic groups - the largest were the Azerbaijanis, Kartvelians, Armenians, and Nakh-Dagestanis, all from different cultures; yet it turned out to be more successful than Yugoslavia.
