[1] Despite his many, many, many flaws, Biden winning the presidency was a blessing in disguise for the socialist movement. Bernie was free to use his position as Senate Finance Chairman to force through or sit on any legislation with near-anonymity, bending the often listless Biden administration to many positions from his own posthumous campaign. Minimum wage was raised, labor powers were expanded, billionaires were even taxed more - but only after the President got a second term.

[2] '28 was an exciting year for radlibs, since both tickets were all-female, purely by coincidence, allowing compassionate conservatism to win out over Biden-era stagflation with little hubub. In a first, a Republican administration put forward pragmatic and bipartisan policies, taking great lengths to combat homelessness and climate-change. Stewart is often credited by Daily Show Democrats with putting the GOP "on the right track", despite a small relapse following her jarring loss in the early thirties. Hawley won that with his Apple-Pie Populism, but was siphoned by Harrington's third party candidacy.

[3] The younger Lumumbada started off as a southern Obama-lite but became more and more radical as the thirties dawned. In the first hour of his presidency, executive orders for a 10% value-added tax on business transactions, a 0.1% tax on financial transactions, a 2% tax on every dollar of net worth above $50 million, and $40/ton carbon tax were signed with a blue ballpoint pen and put into effect the next day. Minority leader Bassaro, trying his best to emulate the late McConnell, lead walkouts in order to further stonewall vacant SCOTUS seats, only for the Prez to use the Constitutional Appointments Clause to confirm judges Kruger, Gupta, Koh, Jackson and Twitty. Any petty terminations Amazon committed to try and call Lumumbada's bluff resulted in stronger, more aggressive Unions. By the end of his second term, monopolies that gripped the global industry were on the verge of collapse.

[4] The American Overton window had now been firmly shoved to a further left. President X, as they called him, made combating climate change his #1 priority in his first 100 days - a fitting caveat, considering how his home state of Florida had become the new, trashier Venice. Oil rig workers were recalled to the mainland in their millions and given new jobs as windmill farm maintenance. Disenfranchised assembly workers suddenly found the jobs at the plant had returned, tho now they'd be putting together EVs instead. New York City quickly found its skyline dotted with towering vertical farms that employed hundreds of Liberal Arts students. Fun fact: only 21,250 square miles of solar panels are needed to power the entire continental United States, and that's exactly how many American businesses made with government grants, payed for by corporations and multinationals being grabbed by the neck and forced into paying absent tax revenue.

[5] The current president, an Enby Oklahoman who usually wears a hijab the same shade of blue as their John Lennon glasses, sits at the head of a rather calm collection of 52 States. Commonsense legislative reform has allowed for the passage of the NPVIC, allowing the Electoral College to be shuttered and congress to erupt into a calliope of new parties. Soldiers haven't been sent overseas in decades, and police exist only as municipal Civilian Defence Forces. The massive network of solar panels, wind turbines, hydroelectric ocean engines and algae blooms has left America energy independent and net carbon neutral. Employees even own small shares in the industries they work for. The real issue for them to face is a social one, as old-world racism and sexism still exist in small pockets. But they all have time for it now, especially since their social war is against class struggle as a whole.
Gonna make a few for this. In-progress.

presents THE TOP 10 GREATEST ALBUMS OF THE 20TH CENTURY
as ranked by you, the readers!
(published Oct. 1999)



10. Neutral Milk Hotel - King of Carrot Flowers (1998)
Genres: Indie, rock, psychedelic folk, lo-fi

The last album Jeff Mangum made before he disappeared during a thunderstorm earlier that year.

mathor rasha.png
9. Giperboloidy - Vostok/Zapad (1990)
Genres: New wave, post-punk, gothic-rock

The first band from the Soviet Union to gain international traction, not just 'cos of their incredible sound, but being purely unafraid to criticise Russian President Zhirinovsky.


8. Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg, Kurt Cobain - Imagine That (1999)
Genres: Experimental hip hop, Rap Rock, Sampledelia

One of the better albums from Cobain's 'experimental' period, an explosive sound collage that exemplifies the unified 90s subculture.

1621368363316.png
7. Krasnaya Polnoch - Kino (1995)
Genres: Folk Punk, Gothabilly

Years after bootleg Cramps records wormed their way into the All-Russian Union, the Gothabilly trend had taken off runnning.

you gon' listen to this marvin.png
6. Marvin Gaye ft. Chaka Khan - Love! Love! Love! (1989)
Genres: Progressive soul, R&B

A complete and comprehensive masterpiece that captures the African-American experience.


5. Ugly Rumours - Halycon Days and Twisted Nights (1986)
Genres: Blues Rock, Pop Rock

Archdukes of the Cool Britannia movement of the late 80s, who's optimism shined in the new Corbyn government.

cr738htltvo11.jpeg
4. The Beatles - Get Back (1970)
Genres: Rock

The album that 'saved the band' and allowed them to Get Back to their roots.


3. The Beach Boys - SMiLE (1967)
Genres: Lo-fi, psychedelic rock, avant-garde, bedroom pop

What many consider to be the absolute zenith of the late-60s psychedelic sound, earmarked by Brian Wilson's mental breakdown. It finally freed the group from their baked-in image as hot-rod-ridin, sweetheart-hand-holding surf dudes.

2. Billie Holiday - “The Green Album” (1965)
Genres: Vocal Jazz

Considered by many to be the soundtrack to the mid-sixties American Civil Rights Movement, blasting from nearly every bedroom window in Chicago.

brainwashed.png
1. The Beatles - Brainwashed (1999)
Genre: Rock, Pop Rock

The reunion album that broke each and every record there is, certified 37× platinum, as well as the last album featuring George Harrison before his untimely passing.​
