Communist Manifesto Published; Malcolm Little Assassinated

February 21st, 2005

in 1173, Pope Henry II canonizes former Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Becket. Ironically, Pope Henry probably had the Archbishop killed because of his independence from Henry’s dictates.

in 12-10-12-8-11, the Cherokee adopt the Micantlutlian script to print their language. This leads to the adoption of the Micantlutlian script across the entire continent, wherever the Oueztecan people trade, and helps the multitude of nations on the twin continents communicate with each other.

in 1851, Karl Marx and Henry David Thoreau publish their Communist Manifesto, asserting that “the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles”. With this document, the course of the United States of America is set, and the young nation takes its first steps towards Communism.

in 1904, long-range surveillance shows the Q’Bar fleet on its way back to the Mlosh homeworld. Many Mlosh begin pushing the Congress of Nations to invade the homeworld; they want to reclaim their heritage from its usurpers. There are humans in the solar system more than willing to go along with them, including Admiral Hamid, supreme commander of the Congress of Nations defensive fleet. Debate begins in the C.N. chambers.

in 1972, the Michael Weller comedy Moonchildren premieres on Broadway. It is so popular that it is made into a CBS TV series of the same name in 1973, bringing fame to young actors Harrison Ford, Suzanne Somers, Lindsay Wagner and Timothy Bottoms.

in 1975, Malcolm Little, leader of the militant wing of America’s Semitic-African Resistance, is assassinated in New York City. The murder was a joint operation between American Bundists and Nazis from the Eurasian New Reich. In retaliation, the S.A.R. manages to bring down Bundist leader George Rockwell.

in 1985, President Ralph Shephard addresses the United States Congress in the remains of the Capitol Building and said, “This is the beginning of the Communist revolt. They will start their attack now. There is not a moment to be lost.” He asked that Congress grant him emergency powers to deal with the drastic situation; the members of his Constitutionalist Party are completely behind him, but lack a 2/3 majority necessary to push through the necessary amendments. The remaining Democrats and Republicans in the Congress, frightened by the bombing, acquiesce, and President Shephard and his Constitutionalists assume almost total power in America.

in 2004, Jacob Sheridan and Livinia Nixon are married at their beach resort in Darwin, Australia. After saving the earth from the Martian invasion the previous summer, a grateful planet poured out its well-wishes on them, and the couple would never need to work again.

Is Ralph Shepard suppost to be like an Amrican Caeser?

Robbie Taylor said...

Not quite - but you're thinking along the right lines...

A. Kevin Baynes said...

You state that Henry David Thoreau published the Communist Manifesto along with Karl Marx... Did you mean to say Friederich Engels?

I think you are misrepresenting Thoreau. Can you provide any links of Thoreau and communism?
