Thanks!Is this a spin-off or based upon another TL?
I honestly can't tell! The writing's so good, painting the background without a dump of exposition, that I feel like I'm reading an actual historical recap.
Rushdoony's theology's essentially identical to OTL, if slightly more paranoid.Does Rushdoony have a similar theology to OTL (ie Presbyterian theocracy)?
The radicalization of the Grangelanders has parallels to both OTL US Mountain West which went from a progressive bastion supportive of the New Deal to an area notorious as a haven for the far right and white nationalists (Church Universal and Triumphant-will they be making an appearance incidentally?, Randy Weaver etc.) and OTL's post Soviet bloc where the neo-Nazi and ultranationalist parties and movements gained strength following the economic dislocations that accompanied the end of communism.
You know, that's not a bad idea at all...Honestly with the standard of the writing I think a contained short piece for Clarkesworld which accepts Althist occasionally as specfic with a suitable theme, such as the crippling emancipation of popular music written by ostensibly ex working class lumpens about life in the horror home home on the grange where the militia and speed dealers pray wherenever is heard an unsanctified word if you want your body seen again. Hallelujah it feels good to be Christ’s soldier.
Presuming Fisk has his OTL political leanings and therefore a likely bias toward the CSA, is this entry supposed to be an accurate recounting of events to the reader or an in universe account, subject to some of his characteristic "ingenuity" at procuring anonymous sources and bearing witness to events no other journalism can?Going Hot (1987)
The events of 3 May 1987 in Kalispell are virtually unique among the first year of what would become the Western Montana Insurgency, in that their order and nature is known with reasonable certainty: at least one of the participants was still alive in 2016, and was willing to describe what happened under conditions of strict anonymity for British journalist Robert Fisk’s documentary on the Insurgency.
excellent catch. As national and international opinion become more important to all of the factions involved in the Insurgency, Fisk, and others like him (each with agendas of their own) are going to become more and more prominent in the TL.Presuming Fisk has his OTL political leanings and therefore a likely bias toward the CSA, is this entry supposed to be an accurate recounting of events to the reader or an in universe account, subject to some of his characteristic "ingenuity" at procuring anonymous sources and bearing witness to events no other journalism can?
Interesting. I’ve always found the plausibility of kaiserreich rather dubious so I was surprised at how compelling I found this. Sargant and his “social autism” was inspired, you coloured a very vivid depiction of the people’s hall and not to mention all the great illustration; I’ll definitely be following eagerly!Fisk.
