These Fair Shores: The Commonwealth of New England

How did the military and police handle the civil unrest and small insurgencies in the US? Or was it the CPO doing the job?

so if the US didn’t suffer much from the past until now, this is basically North Korea where every type of unrest, protest, etc is crushed immediately?

What was a brief but violent period in the US history during the years of the Cold War (without the Cold War) ? Like an example of an insurgency but it gets crushed? Or a massacre of protesters leading to civil unrest but doesn’t last long?

is there an equivalent to the troubles or years of lead in the world?
 
- The First Minister is the "Prime Minister" of the indigenous territory, which the Australian Parliament does not legislate for.
Then why can the Prime Minister come from either parliament and is responsible to both bodies? Wouldn't it make more sense for the Prime Minister to come from and be responsible to only the Australian Parliament, and the First Minister coming from and being responsible to the Aboriginal Parliament?
 
Well, the situation in the US is... horrifying, and I have so many questions and so many thoughts. I'll just go with two that I can make coherent though.

1. What the hell happened to make American English (or whatever it's called) so freaking... wtf?
2. As a proud hamiltonian IRL, I am very unhappy to see his name being used by the DSU like this, and I am just praying that what's going on is something TTL's Hamilton would actually be rolling in his grave over (like, please let them just have been misusing his name).

Also, I'm surprised the Chairman turned out not to be the one behind the hardest line stances.

Apparently it was simplified to improve literacy by making it easier to learn. It also had the effect of distinguishing the US and their written English from the British Empire and their "fancier English". I believe the spoken version is no different from the British, or our own.

*The phrase "Han-English Commonwealth" and the motif of a Phoenix comes from OTL postwar propaganda by the British
*The word for "England" in Cantonese is usually used to refer to Britain, including in official capacities
*The "nine provinces" refers to a Chinese concept of the same name, sometimes interchangable with "all under heaven", in this case it refers to the entire British Empire"

Culture: The Tea Set (by Caprice)
"If I said the Tea Set knew what they were doing, I would overstate at best and lie at worst. If they existed much earlier, they would collapse under the weight of school and economy. However, in 1966, the Liberal government of Britain began funding up-and-coming artists, and the Tea Set took their minds with the air of nostalgia and pastoralism combined with the strong English accent of Barrett, so they stumbled into their cultural support. In early 1967, they recorded their debut album, a disorganized assembly of Barrett's compositions and a couple of instrumentals. The album was a modest success, likely from the old people who wanted a nostalgia of the days before the War."
- an excerpt from the blog of Jersey Wygachiewicz, Polish enthusiast of British culture

Given that A, Australia has seemingly not become a Republic, B, not fallen into socialist chaos, and C, not been wholly abandoned for the sunny shores of Westralia, and it's been more than 4 years. I'm going to guess that the Courier Mail is as dogshit as OTL. Well, that's some comfort, isn't it? The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I did notice you mention that Australia has a low-boiling Republican movement, is it much the same as OTL, a thing people talk about doing, and then just ignore?

I'm surprised that it's even allowed to exist at all, given how the Empire is hostile to any form of separatism.
