St. Just

St. Just, formerly known as El Yanqui, Tsar Gringo, and before that Massa Chief, is an American member from Montgomery County, Maryland (and who went to school in D.C.) who joined in January 2010.

He had gone by “Tsar Gringo” since November 26, 2013, when he changed it from the previous “Massa Chief”. He changed his name again in March-April 2015.

Has a defined affinity for the Old Right; does not shirk from disparaging the GOP. One of the more dedicated anti-interventionists. Also causes occasional puzzlement (on the part of the other party) when DTanza or another one of the more liberal members agrees with him.

In recent months has verged into more Marxist styles of argument, along with becoming more of an anti-capitalist. Probably the most dedicated and unwavering cynic on the board, to the irritation of many people.

Although he claims to dislike all culture post-early 20th century, he is a huge fan of the NFL and the Washington Redskins football team in particular, though he says he would like to see the team's offensive moniker renamed.


Works

A Giant Leap For Mankind Basically, it's an alt-exploration TL, with a pre-TL PoD in the early 13th century. Has supplemental updates to provide detailed exhibition of the world before the “start” of the TL (1400) but the TL itself will be about Europe's role in the creation of global trade and global interaction.

In typical fashion for St. Just, it's now on de facto hiatus. In God's good time indeed…
