Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

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 found a incredible guide about Earl Browder, and this quite explains why he is a proponent of control of the worker's over auto gestion:

Basically he was corrupt, Browderism was seen as a corruption of 1930s communism and that is why he was kicked out of the party allowing Foster to return. This makes me wonder, however, what are the bad things of Foster that led him to have the possibility to take such harsh social measures on KR like legalizing suicide?
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:

I love the Custom Country Paths mod. Just had an epic game with Germany surrounded by a massive Internationale (Batavia, USSR, Poland, Scandanavia and Spain all joined them). Just set up one with the Internationale imploding in 1936 and me trying to win with the CSA against a Garner-No-Long-AUS America to restore syndicalism into the world.
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.

 
And the part of legalizing suicide?
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:

Good God, and I tough it was a exageration...

Well, still I believe he would drop the proposal on the game, wouldn't he?

Except America is federal. So the socialists probably focus on developing state level programs when they fall short of the presidency.
 
I'll miss Vasyl "groomed to be Polish, wanted to be Ukrainian so much he escaped home to travel Ukraine undercover" Vyshyvanyi, I'll admit.
Based on the updated Vasyl page, he has been turned into a leading figure of anti-Hetman movements based in Galicia-Lodomeria, with ties to people like Symon Petliura. He may or may not be a pretender to the Ukrainian throne, but if so he appears disillusioned with it.

There's a minor secondary spoiler for the East European Rework on the Ukrainian State page: Poland apparently starts out as a Reichspakt nation. It also indicates one thing won't change: the Don-Kuban Union existing in 1936.
