    I remember following the original thread over at the Pdox forums and being very sad it didn't finish. A lot of Meadow's ideas became the ground from which KR developed over the years. Totalism is the obvious example, but I drew a lot of inspiration from TPF when I redid India myself. I dunno if it's still included in the HoI4 version, but the event where R. H. Tawney goes to Calcutta to negotiate the Anglo-Indian Trade Agreement is derived directly from Meadow's AAR.

    So, thanks indeed @Meadow for brushing off this old thing. I'll happily pay for a copy :)

    I'm wondering what the political overtone window of a Long rebels, Reed compromises timeline would look like in the USA, assuming Olson manages to whoop Long's ass, I'm thinking its gonna look a lot like OTL Italy, the socialist are competitive, wins local elections, but are always a few inches short of winning the presidency.

    I asked the KR devs about Foster on the KR Discord, and they told me that Foster's social policies are based on his syndicalist writings from OTL, specifically this passage right here:

    Update on my CSA game: After a six-year civil war with 13 million deaths I finally annexed the USA. Russia declared war on Germany while fighting Japan and Turkestan and got curb stomped. Germany also forced the Setting Sun event on Japan. The UK declared war on Reichspakt aligned Spain for Gibraltar. France pushed to the Rhine then had their army wrecked. The UK is slowly pushing Germany out of France with 100+ divisions by themselves (the French are down to 2 divisions).

    I rebuilt the US and took over the Americas while that was going on. Even with a massive army, Peru was a PITA to take down I slammed into the mountains and took 1 million casualties without moving them at all. I didn't even do that bad taking on Brazil and it's puppet Argentina.

    Fun game. I'm going to like setting up more scenarios like this.

    On the legalization of suicide part, I believe that came from this passage, as the devs told me Foster wrote that engineering your own suicide in defiance of capitalism was a good thing, and I believe they were referring to this:

    Except America is federal. So the socialists probably focus on developing state level programs when they fall short of the presidency.

    How would the CSA government and economy work during the Second Civil War?
