Thanks. It was kinda cathartic to think, at least for a moment, in those What If's of history. Those are spaces to weep, wonder, lament and hope. I also believe that the US as a project would eventually turn to horrid crimes and bloodbaths regardless of way of birth. I've been lagging on a similar idea, but with a sci-fi undertone, of time travellers murdering Reagan and Thatcher while keeping the USSR as a decaying superpower in the XXI century. Gives space to think that a phoenix of emancipatory socialism could emerge from the husk, but then again, it could be squashed as well. In the end, I believe that to write is to imagine and to do so is to go outside the defined boundaries today.
