10centjimmy Posted February 11 Share Posted February 11 (edited) Welcome to another AMPU Playtest - The Era of Ideologies The Era of Ideologies marked an international constitutional battle. Who would prevail? Republicanism? Fascism? or Communism? All forms of these governments proliferated as the monarchies of the world collapsed in the 1910s and 1920s. Every form of government seemed to seek a sort of long-lasting strongman to reform government and proliferate their theory of constitutional order. In a way, this era marked a return of the progressive era from its nap in the 1920s. Finance and trade became even more international, making it much more likely that the collapse of one major economy would collapse all major economies. Nationalism is also on the rise and as the population is growing at an expanded rate, the quest for resources and land becomes more and more desirable. War--possibly a World War--seems likely. 1928 begins with the Herbert Hoover and the Republicans (Red Party) absolutely dominating the Al Smith-led Democratic Party (Blue Party) in the Presidential Election, and maintaining a strong hold on statehouses, the Senate, the House, and even the Supreme Court. Will they be able to maintain their dominance? It seems likely with the economic boom of the Roaring Twenties running strong and fearless isolationism keeping the United States out of foreign complications. President Hoover will be looking at a comfortable re-election in 1932 as long as he puts his faith in the invisible hand of the free market and a blind eye towards global affairs. Surely nothing is coming around the corner... Teams are set, ready to roll! Edited February 13 by 10centjimmy 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
