There’s something I don’t like about the alternate history comments in my previous post: they don’t go deep enough. The deep thing is to ponder why the Americans and the British weren’t fascinated by the Third Reich, not whether or not Stalin was going to invade Germany in 1941.
A profound insight would be what a Broken Bran would see thanks to the Weirwoods network: that both the Soviet Union and the United States came from the same trunk, from the same ideas that originated the French Revolution: neo-Christian branches of equality and fraternity, artificially imposed by the State.
If we are to speculate about alternative history, the only profound speculation that occurs to me is to imagine a West that had not been infected with the ideas of the Bible which, as we know, allows ethnocentrism for the chosen people while, in the New Testament, it requires us to love any neighbour.
We can already imagine a truly alternative history in which neither the inhabitants of the British island nor the white settlers on the other side of the Atlantic, which in my fantasies I call New Scandinavia, would have been Christians. But let’s go back to the real history.
What happened to Hitler is that he was a sower who went out to sow. And while he was sowing, some of the seed fell by the road but the birds came and ate it. And some fell among thorns, and they grew and choked it. Some fell on rocky ground, where there was not much soil. It sprouted early because it had no depth of earth, but when the sun rose it burned, and because it had no roots it dried up.
And no part fell on good ground, where it would have borne very abundant fruit, because the white fools for two thousand years had drunk the poison that came from the lips of a fictional character, Yeshu.
