Some house rules that help the axis.


  • '10

    1. Any country that holds all three of these territories at the end of a turn gets one ipc.- Soloman Islands, Caroline Islands, Wake Island.

    2. Allies do not collect for holding Gibraltar but if an axis power takes Gibraltar it shall receive one ipc per turn for as long as it is held.



  • Sounds pretty good. 😉



  • Details, details. I love details! . . . Now, if I could only keep 'em straight. 😛 -Xi

    “Communism, like any other revealed religion, is largely made up
    of prophecies. When they fail its clergy simply say that they will
    be realized later on. Thus, if we have another boom, they will argue
    that the collapse of capitalism is only postponed. The fact that the
    greatest booms ever heard of followed Marx’s formal prophecy of the
    downfall of capitalism is already forgotten, just as millions have
    long since forgotten the early Christian prophecy that the end of
    the world was at hand. The first Christians accepted postponements
    as docilely as the Communists of today.” - Henry L. Mencke



  • Communism, like any other revealed religion, is largely made up

    Communism es not religion! Also, at least communism’s so-called “prophesies” are at least plausible and can be achieved. Unlike certain other religions that defy the natural laws…

    Thus, if we have another boom, they will argue
    that the collapse of capitalism is only postponed.

    Maybe to the well developed nations. Notice how in poorer, “weaker” countries, they mostly remain in poverty.

    Communism is on the move! Conditions are not yet favorable to communism all over the world, but it is starting to take root. Communist work for better future - not the end of it (against the so-called “End of the World”)

    The fact that the
    greatest booms ever heard of followed Marx’s formal prophecy of the
    downfall of capitalism is already forgotten

    Great Depression? :-?



  • T_6,
    I believe Henry L. Mencke was making some comparisons. Not calling communism a religion. The quote is not as succinnct as “A bird in the hand makes waste” and needs more exploration. That’s one reason I like to post these quotes. It stirs others to address them. Some quotes I find are stupid alone, but when put in context(more explanation or timeline of events) they often make more sense. - Xi

    “You’ll see certain Pythagoreans whose belief in communism of
    property goes to such lengths that they pick up anything lying
    about unguarded, and make off with it without a qualm of
    conscience as if it had come to them by law.”

    • Desiderius Erasmus, Dutch humanist. Praise of Folly, ch. 48 (1509).
      NOTE THE YEAR IT WAS WRITTEN.

    Appropriate that this was written by a Dutch-man. This is an occurrance employed often by the Hudderites - a communal Christeo-religious organization contained by colonies in Manitoba, Saskachewan and Alberta (and other places, i’m sure) - not certain if they were founded by the Swiss (a guy named Jacob Hut) or Dutch (guy named Hans Hutter).

    Why is it appropo? - Xi

    “I thank heaven for a man like Adolf Hitler, who built a
    front line of defense against the anti-Christ of Communism.”

    • Frank Buchman, evangelist. New York World-Telegram(August 25, 1936).

    :oops: I guess he was a little embarrassed shortly after May 8, 1945! - Xi

    just 'cuz of the whole dutch-communist-Christian axis found in rural Manitoba.

    Religion, the opium of the masses.
