I found this guy on youtube a couple of days ago and thought it was worth sharing.
In his own words it's about history that deserves to be remembered.

Right, this is Churchill satirizing the Kaiser or something like that?

I don't think it was specifically aimed at the Kaiser. I think Churchill was actually saying that you can't truly know how history would have gone if some momentous event had played out differently. The assumption that a Union loss in the ACW would have lead to greater chaos in the early twencen is not a given, but could have instead lead to Churchill's 'English-Speaking Association' and, possibly, it's continental European counterpart.

The article is a counterfactual, which is what 'alt-history' was called back in the day.

Do two counter-factuals equal a factual?

No, but three lefts make a right.
