The Footprint of Mussolini - TL

And so it finally dies and stay dead . Marx and lenin can rott in hell for all i care.
ITTL trying to talk about 'True Communism' would be like someone OTL trying to argue that Hitlerism was not 'True Nazism' and that he perverted the ideas of Anton Drexler.
 
Just wondering what did happen to Marx's grave? Brits hardly tolerate its existence.

Perhaps Spandau prison becomes prison for leaders who commited war crimes and crimes against humanity .

Marx was exhumed and his grave was erased. His remains were incinerated and put to Sea during the Trier trial. Engels was likewise purged from his places of significance.
 
For sure, but the Ainu didn't deserve to be driven across the Trail of Tears Deux: Maritime Boogaloo to a place that can't even support their population.
At least they're alive, in an awful location and isolated from the rest of Japan, that's bad of course, but at least there they will be able to retain their culture without being harassed by the Yamato society.
They're in a really bad situation, but they exist as a people. The Slovenes weren't that lucky.

And so it ends, so many struggled for it, so many died for it, so many placed their hopes in it; yet at the end it seems hardly a tear is to be shed. A tragedy to the last.

Chiang stands triumphant, he can howl with some justification he has made China great again. From the steppes to the Southern shore China is united as a nuclear power. Unless his son democratizes the country like OTL I could see Republican China's dictatorship lasting decades ITTL.

Dang it Japan! You just had to make us regret letting you militarize didn't you?!

Italy has been pt in a bad position though they may not realize it. Being excluded from the final crusade against Communism ruined their chance to shore up support. Even in the Middle East it was the Turks and Iranians who took point. And now the RoC is challenging their place in the RA. All he while operation Infinite Quagmire in Ethiopia drains Italy in every way. Even to the Italians, I expect Italy is looking like chumps compared to the other Fascists right now.

But i think two things will happen before Italy starts to really move toward the end of the One Party State:

1. End of the current French Republic, a more boldly AntiFascist and less colonial minded regime coming to power. France taking a more ITTL 'British' approach to colonialism and ending the special relationship between the RA and France in Africa undermining the RAs position on the ground and in the public.

2. Portugal seeing the writing on the wall and members of the regime wanting to avoid a Trier of their own negotiating withdrawal from the RA to the ITO.

What's the status of Mongols in China? I hope that China didn't take a similar stance to Japan on Hokkaido.

I'm curious what influence the Tolstoyists will ultimately have on America.

Given Marx is extremely discredited, I wonder who the Kurds publicly identify as the root of their own socialist ideology?
 
So Communism is just as condemned as Nazism ITTL?

I could see negative side effects for the rest of Leftist politics from this, in a manner similar to McCarthyism was towards liberals and the civil rights movement during the 50s, but hopefully not.

Communism is indeed seen as vile ideology as Nazism. But moderate leftism (social democracy and some other similar things) are acceptable when they condemned crimes of Communism.
 
I just hope that the Spanish guy after Franco reconsiders Morroco status. The country deserves at least a small coastline to survive. Also, ugly borders

Mongols are OTL Tibet. Same rights as other citizens but don’t dare fight the government.

Does that mean efforts to settle members of the Han ethnic group in the area too?

Interesting times for East Turkestan too. With all the turmoil on their borders are they facing a refugee crisis?

Indeed with respect to internal immigration - East Turkestan is fine since the South is prosperous and everyone wants to go there.
