Alternate history or revisionist history ?
An interesting new (or new for here ?) type of alternate history topic has popped up.. It is not even tagged as "alternate-history",
How to form an "international alliance of nationalists"?
This topic was the first one, for which I took a first vote to close it. I'm normally far too tolerant.. but in this case, I really wonder what the intent is, with the title (in the first place). It could be some fishing for ideas by neo-nazi's, asking for things already arranged, suggesting they are not organized (?)
The content is even more strange. Apparently the talking point is not really about the question itself. The opening is confusing.. and in the comments, the opener keeps talking about nazi's and jews, disguised as "N's and J's" as if he thinks no one would understand what "N's and J's" are. But I do wonder in this case, with this premise/claim about radical jews in the opening, are we supposed to generate scenario's for some nazi-revisionist history, where communist jews were to blame for the destruction of Europe ?
When a thing like this can happen on WB, tagged or not, I really feel "alternate history" is a dangerous path, especially alternate modern history. Suppose someone would make that "plausible"..
The J's world on Earth was destroyed, there's nothing to be built or reinvent, nothing to be changed, or undone. I wonder why the topic has not been deleted yet. It was closed, it now has 3 reopen votes..
This is my view: please keep WB the escapist place as it is now, let it be about fictional worlds, involving fictional creatures, with fictional climates and fictional races, in fictional times, or thousands of years ago or thousands of years in the future, on Earth if really needed. Medieval is fine, WW-II is not.
My proposal for this tag would be: if an alternate-history is presented on Earth, put a limit of (at least) a century in the past.. or future stuff..
