    I mean, there are several differences between syndicalism and communism (and I think many syndicalist nations in KR are democratic), however, from the audience's perspective, much of which probably wouldn't know much about syndicalism, the CSA would appear communist.

    In my opinion, if the director of a 2nd ACW is given enough freedom, any side could be depicted as the protagonist or antagonist.

    If we put that into a Game of Thrones style of character based TV show, that would be incredibly interesting. And magic wouldn't come along to ruin the dynamic.
    If noone else is able to, I'd be willing.

    Like, a massive Dieselpunk world, where it's not quite proper mecha level dieselpunk, but it's getting there with zeppelins and stuff. And the protagonist is a zeppelin captain for the Southern secessionist group (they get the CSA, and the Combined Syndicates gets a new name, like the American Syndicated Communities or something), and in the beginning, it starts off as him being a begrudging Captain of the southern secessionist group, when he's blown off course on a mission and ends up in German Tanzaniyka, where he learns about what's happening in the rest of the world. He then realizes that the Southern secessionist group is only gonna have that keep going, so he decides to switch sides, and the end of the movie is him slamming the zeppelin into the southern version of the White house lawn and then storming the presidency.

    It's just that this was a really bad necro. If people want to still talk about it that's great, but three people a thread do not make.

    Too boisterous IMO. Maybe Gary Oldman on LSD?
