    Other Ideologies: Anarcho-capitalism (Part One)

    Very happy to see it up! :) I'm a little, ever so slightly disappointed that we couldn't fit in certain details that a person like me finds particularly humourous, like how William Volker was an eccentric Kansas City businessman who had taken a small company manufacturing picture frames and...

    I suppose I know this because I've always had a fondness for the radicals during the Reformation, and in particular the Puritan's approach to translating the Bible. They really hated terms like baptism and bishop, because they felt they gave the whole of Christianity a certain mystical aura to...

    Come now, surely bishop etymologically comes from ἐπίσκοπος which is literally Greek for overseer.

    Interesting thing is that if you go for Japan, you should note that the Japanese word for socialism does not actually draw from the Japanese word for social but from society. However, I am not listing all the countless LDP Prime Ministers Japan has had since Prince Naruhiko Higashikuni just to...

    I'd say damned you, Norway, but frankly, the outright granular coastline of Finland is far worse to do a vector map of. Norway may be breaking apart and falling into the ocean, but Finland is outright dissolving. ...oh yes, and I'm having some luck with the interactive stuff I need to make...

    Making a sufficiently detailed SVG map of Scandinavia is far more annoying and tedious and time-consuming than I originally projected it to be... Also, why do we have so many fucking lakes and fjords and archipelagos in Scandinavia?! Japan has a much nicer geography to it.

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    Well as mentioned, I would have Nick Clegg being Tory leader at around the time he was Lib Dem leader, and Vince Cable being Labour leader at the same time, and the idea was that since Jeremy Thorpe came from a Tory family, he would be Tory leader during the 60s-70s. Still, I would want to have...

    I think she's a little too close in age to Liz Truss to work. Obviously, if I did make it into a full TLIAW, she would likely be the one running against Liz Truss in the leadership election, just as Geoffrey Howe (campaigned for the Liberals and voted Liberal in 1945) would make an appearance...

    And there's Michael Heseltine added after Benn. I presume that in this timeline, Heseltine is on the right of the party, and so seen as being on the same side as Thatcher, and her heir in a sense.

    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    I don't really feel that the National Liberals that later merged with the Tories really count (which admittedly was where he started his career), but if it's on record that he flirted with joining the Liberals proper, then he's an obvious successor to Thatcher. I cannot do Clegg because he is...
