    Inspired by watching the first episode of the HBO drama last night...

    Although I am not quite sure how a Magnox or an AGR reactor would misbehave in a similar way to the RMBK one at Chernobyl because of their design.

    As I remember from watching a documentary on Kent state a lot of the towns people actually were on the police side. At it highly the counter culture was still a minority in the us. I think the hard right would still support the President.

    Towns people and the more liberal people in cities are two different populations.

    https://thevietnamwar.info/counterculture/
    Countercuture is more influential than you think.

    https://academic.oup.com/ahr/article-abstract/114/1/45/43869
    https://search.proquest.com/openvie...3bf386734c/1?pq-origsite=gscholar&cbl=1820876

    Documentary remains subpar compared to peer reviewed academic journal articles and books, esp. When documentary is more prone to info manipulation as a documentary is not subject the rigorous standards of source check and referencing.

    Also, the effect of a worse Vietnam War and use of nuclear weapon would have enhance resistance to the Administration.

    What about the gallop taken shortly after the shootings that 58% of the people polled believed the responsibility for the deaths was the student.

    1. It was 48%.
    2. There was cosequences as percentage of Americans that thought US withdrawl from Vietnam was too slow increased from 26% in late 1969 to 34% in May 1970. Counterculture and domestic political movements were intimately connected to the Vietnam War. A more aggressively conducted Vietnam War is likely to lead to more war casualties which would feed back to domestic politics. Using OTL poll data makes little sense unless your TL justified that the US Pop swinged more to the right due to all the TTL changes, but I cannot find such descriptions.

    Jim Jones (1931 -). After Lady Kings take over, Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of the Peoples Temple would soon be placed in charge of California, sharing his power with the more sadistic and less stable Charles Manson. Jones would not hide his dislike of Manson, and many people would speculate that he had made up the allegations that had gotten Manson killed in 1977, though this is merely a theory. Overtime Jones would rise up the ranks, becoming the right hand and advisor of Lady King, many speculating that he had begun a relationship with her, though this has been questioned. He had served as the international negotiator since the 1990s.

    1953. Singer and actress Marilyn Monroe (Codenamed: Venus) and comedian, singer and Rat Pack member Sammy Davis Jr. (Codenamed: Batty). Sammy Davis Jr. is seen in this photo demonstrating his superhuman ability of telepathy, which he used primarily for flight. Sammy was very public with his powers, and was given the nickname of "Batty" from other Rat Pack members after joking that "He was a flying rat" and that "He was almost driving us batty". Marilyn Monroe's powers manifested in 1950, albeit not yet noticed until later on, when it was discovered that her ageing had seized entirely. Both would be named honorary members of the Syndicate of Heroes.

    A photo of John Allen Chau, a missionary who travelled to Sentinel Island in the Andaman And Nicobar Islands, in order to convert the locals to Christianity. The island, which the government does not allow any human to sail to due to the native peoples’ hostility towards outsiders, is inhabited by a small population of uncontacted tribes. Chau was shot in late 2018. Born in Alabama to a Chinese father and an American mother, he was raised religious, and trained by the Evangelical Christian organisation All Nations. He attempted to assimilate himself into the local tribe, which temporarily worked, until he was shot by a young boy.

    You may wish to use photos that doesn't show Kanji, as the 1st and 3rd photos are quite obviously those of the Tokyo Subway.
