Kind of a weird story there. Tragic, but weird.

Been playing World of Warcraft all weekend. Finishing up some last minute goals before the pre-expansion patch makes some stuff unobtainable when it releases on Tuesday.

To damn hot to play or do anything else.

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.
