I feel most people here have a uncritical view of Syndicalists, especially given their reputation of "Socialism but it works" among the KR fandom (aided that a lot of the other factions are pretty unpleasant by modern standards at best).(2) You consider the syndies forcing a family of singers to perform propaganda song too be 'too extreme' for them? For the record, the following is the word-by-word event text for the COF if they decide to balkanize Germany after winning WK2:
'The new government in Berlin is firmly under our control and northeast Germany is now a loyal member of the Internationale. Many Junker have found their just punishment in the people's court. May their bodies, now hanging from the trees and telegraph poles, be a warning to all reactionaries!'
These are the same people that engages in acts of cultural desecration by publicly dynamiting the Brandenburg Gate while singing the Internationale, and burning down the Royal Palace of Madrid after looting the place when they take the Spanish capital. Dragging a bunch of 'reactionary class enemies' (Which the Von Trapps family most certainly count as) in front of a stage and force them to sing propaganda songs is absolutely the type of thing they would do.
Posted this in the wrong thread.I just thought of an idea for a KR version Hogan's Heroes:
Have it set during WK2 in a Russian POW and have Colonel Hogan and Klink work together if barely.
I think there won´t be anything comparable in America. The special hate an ideological civil war create, let nothing good expect for the treatment of POW´s, at least nothing you write later a sitcom about.
In Europe it depends how the WK goes and how POW`s are treated. Let say there is a german sitcom in the sixties. Here I have the idea, that in the UOB camps were propably guarded by female militias. The joke could be, that there are "romantic collaboartion" between the german POW´s and their female british guards.
