Here comes the Unitron, the world's first Macintosh clone:When it comes to computer operating systems in this TL, what do you guys think would be the most common surviving ones? I mean I can see that Brazil night have made their own for their computers.
A very fitting name indeed.I have to say the idea they used the Domino Theory is quite an interesting take.
It simply been adapted to that of religious fundamentalism. I think the way it be seen as is simple.
If Country A is having civil problems (civil war, civil unrest, or has a huge increase in radicalism in some of its own population (say through the Net being able to spread violent and dangerous propaganda or "fake news")) then Country A will spread unrest elsewhere in its area.
So that being said its next door neighbor, Country B would get effected as well in some way. Then so would Country C, Country D, Country E, and so on. The dominos all fall down and you get a region of the world where things are not well, and something in the line of similarity with the Arab Spring.
Difference is though.
It be called the Grim Spring, since it spread massive unrest regionwide. So it basically would be a evil version of the Arab Spring, as instead of spreading democracy, the Grim Spring would spread more unrest, radicalization, and more religious fundamentalism.
Possibly, then again it is hard to say. I mean I have shown that there are in fact some very violent games in EDU.Do you think a movie like Mortal Kombat could be still made in Australia?
I wonder if something like Kaiserreich could exist?But since we are on the topic of fiction. I wonder if people would make a equivalent to the HOI4 mod, The New Order set in EDU. I mean still taking place in a world where the Axis won, but the US is still around.
It be interesting to imagine such a mod being made within this alternate world. Like for instance would Doomsday still be a thing that can't be prevented or can it be prevented if you are able to make the right choices.
I know for certain when it comes to alternate history within EDU and 1983: Doomsday, some people would be aware and know about the book The Man in the High Castle.
Possibly within alternate history fandom in Post-Doomsday would see Doomsday or an equivalent to it as something that has to happen in human history, as a wake up call. I wouldn't say that every alternate history in Post-Doomsday would always have some nuclear war, some might have entirely avoided Doomsday and see how humanity lasts longer still with nukes and nuclear technology.
Here what I think would factor into for most alternate histories in Post-Doomsday.
1. Doomsday or an equivalent to it happens, human is devastated but fortunately avoids total extinction and total collapse of modern civilization. (So lets say someone made a alternate history where Tang Dynasty survives and ends up becoming a powerful world power and results in world being more Easternized instead of Westernized. Only for this to come to a crashing end with a nuclear war between Tang China and India or who knows).
2. Doomsday can be avoided, but doing so will be tricky since people would find it difficult to see what happens during the rest of the 1980's and 1990's. For sure I can bet many historians would argue that the Soviet Union would collapse at some point if Doomsday did not occur. Some would probably guess that China would adopt a capitalist system but still being a one-party state that is unfair. And many would probably think that eventually the United States would go into decline and end up like how Britain did (Being once a world power, but declined, but at the same time never fell into a civil war.)
3. Doomsday is inevitable in human history, it can be delayed of course. However it cannot be permanently postponed as some would argue that Doomsday would still happen at some point (whether it be in the late 1980's, 1990's, 2000's, 2010's, etc.).
4. Doomsday can be avoided, however instead something else that is horrific will happen to humanity that they are able to recover from, but albeit things won't be the same ever again afterwards due to it being so impacting. Like say a global pandemic in which a virus kills a shit ton of people that it results in mass unrest. Or say perhaps in a realistic scenario one could argue that global warming would get worse rapidly within the next few decades that it starts affecting crops, wildlife, and cities.
I think certainly someone would make something involving Central Powers victory in World War I, along with something similar to Red Flood as well.I wonder if something like Kaiserreich could exist?
