"What Madness Is This?" Volume II: Prophecies in the Dark

I love the Carolinian Empire so much. It's an absolute fever dream that helps bring some levity to balance out the horrors of the RU.

Exactly its purpose. lol

Sorry if I am nitpicky, but you already made a Heart of Darkness reference in Vol I, in the Spiritual marxism chapter. I don't know if you know it or not, so I thought maybe you forgot about it and were unknowingly repeating it again. If you already know it, then I haven't said anything.

I was aware. The mention in Vol I can be assumed to be the start of Africa being called the "Heart of Darkness" ITTL. I figured the Carolinians would be especially fond of the term, given their racial stance on things.
 
Behold, what I got cookin' right now.
 
My thought has always been that with the onset of Sexual Marxism LGBT people will be able to live their lives like normal, provided they're productive loyal citizens and they make donations to the local fluid bank (think a blood bank that's also a reproductive health center)
I wonder what will happen when some Cackalacky's "adventures" brings AIDS to the RU. Will it enter via the gay population as OTL, or will it enter via another vector? These "Fluid Banks" sound like a great way to initially spread it before it is known AIDS exists...

I came from Ol' CoCaro,
With my banjo on my knee,
I'm sailin' off to New Cackalack,
To build a home, you see;
It rained all night the day I left,
The weather it was dry,
The sun so hot I froze to death,
Oh, Charlotte, don't you cry.

Charlotte, my love, oh don't you cry for me,
I must leave Ol' CoCaro
With my banjo on my knee.

I jumped aboard the transport ship,
I sang with a merry lilt,
I arrived over there in the col-o-nies,
A homestead for to built
It was dry and hot and hot and dry,
I really thought I'd die;
I shut my eyes to hold my breath,
But, Charlotte, don't you cry.

Charlotte, my love, oh don't you cry for me,
I must leave Ol' CoCaro
With my banjo on my knee.

I had a dream the other night
When everything was still,
We were back in CoCaro,
And dancin' on Jackson Hill
But I can't return, my love,
Until I build our home,
And then I'll send a ship for you,
And never more shall roam.

This land is wild and very rough
With savages all around,
But when you see the 'tation I built,
You will fall upon the ground.
We'll have fifteen kids, and maybe more,
build a future of our own,
A Southron future by the Grace of God,
In our lovely New Cack'lack Home.

I love all of this, especially the music. The banjo activated my soul. I can't wait for this chapter! Also...

We'll have fifteen kids, and maybe more,

A Southron future by the Grace of God,
In our lovely New Cack'lack Home.

It's official folks: Us Cackalacks FUCK
 
What are the Lommies position on LGBT people? And are there any ideologies or groups that actually accept LGBT people ITTL? The RU’s position is quite obvious.

Personally speaking, I think given the Loomie's idea of "every man a God" and man going above and beyond what nature gave them, I can see Loomie intellectuals be fascinated with the concept of trans-sexualism. The idea of eradicating gender and the limitations of biological sex for man to be whatever they want can be something to be explored once the Pinnacle Future comes around. I can see Illuminati art and figures/heroes become increasingly androgynous in appearance as they Loomie's want to overcome traditional gender roles and reach a level of equality where one is a little bit of everything or something. Keep in mind though, the interest in trans-sexualism I think will be limited mostly to intellectuals, the common folk'll probably be a little "no thanks" on that especially in a place like Russia where tradition runs deep in many parts of society.

Edit: Also, one thing about the Loomies is I can see them, in a jab at the R.U.'s racialist worldview to advocate and in some darker cases literally enforce the mixing of peoples to create one unified human race, because if we all look the same, then we cant' discriminate on that end or something or whatever the logic goes.

I have a couple different Gamble pics I'm working on. Here's a proof of concept.

Carolinian Chancellor Johnny Gamble poses for a photo with Colonial Governor of Gamblesia, Big Moe Brown.

Chancellor Gamble's 1950 marriage to folk singer and four-time former Miss West Carolina Tobacco Winifred Dixon was a cause for celebration all across the Cackalack realm. She was 30, and he was 67. "I smell like piss and vinegar, and she smells of Cackalack toback and elderberries." *gentrified applause and sweet tea toasts* She replaced former First Lady of the Confederation Frankie Kuhn, who had passed in 1948.

Apologies in advanced for the double post


This takes on whole new meaning in the Madnessverse. Imagine a black soldier coming back home from South America and for the first time in his life seeing things with his eyes open.

"Can't you see dammit!? Don't you get it! The only reason those mass murdering pig's ever declared we were betters was because they needed us on their side against those slavers pigs... they co-opted us! They hop us up on cocaine, meth and all sorts of shit disguised as candies as kids so we can more easily swallow their BS. What have we done in the last hundred years besides helping those bastards in MASS MURDER!

You didn't see what it was like down there with Latin families fighting like dogs just so we don't murder their kids... kids man. Or how about a young private with wife an kids back home dying from withdrawal because we ran out of motherfucking sweet victory! Don't you see in here, inside where it counts we're not superior to anyone of the countless people we've MURDERED in the last century. They we're human beings man, human beings and we killed them... Well you know what? I've had enough! Enough of mutherfucking Oswald, enough of the bullshit spewing AFC, enough of hellbound country! We're worse than those fuckers who kept us in chains a hundred years ago.

I remember posting way back in Thread 1 of the redux the idea of Illuminism really latching onto a warped idea of evolution, where Russian Slavs were the most evolved form of humanity, that centuries in the hard lands of the east and constant wars against barbarians had cut the chaff from the wheat and given them the genetic edge above all others, and it was the Illuminist duty to help advance and uplift the rest of the world by spreading Russian genes to all of humanity. Throw in a strong focus on genetic sciences and early trans humanism to push them even further. Where as the fascist states want to preserve their Pinnacle Blood, Illuminists are aiming to creat a better humanity at its very foundation, it’s people. Imagine an entire state of Khan Noonien Singh’s and his augments, dedicated to uplifting you and your children whether you want it or not

Flag of West Carolina is almost done, and then I'll do East Carolina, and whatever other island or what have you they have. I will also do one for Gamblesia, which will be a placeholder for whatever other batshit holding they claim in the future. I find the idea of some broken nation-state in the 2000s experiencing its fiftieth coup that week being named after a dude named Johnny Gamble hilarious.

I love using the crescent obsession of the antebellum south from OTL as inspiration. Such an odd thing to see on a Western flag. Note the other flags have rising suns. CoCaro must be fond of astronomy and astrology. Feel free to pitch ideas.

Think of this TL as a video game. Think of the forthcoming storyline as a Cokie Expansion Pack DLC. Lol
