Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democraticallyto meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as welleverywhere but in the United States.

Oh Germany in high esteem
Text by Ludwig Bauer and melody by Henry Hugo Pierson in 1859
Oh Germany in high esteem,
you sacred land of loyality,
always lights your fame´s shine,
in east and west anew!
You stand firm as thy mountains,
against the force of the enemy and deception,
and like the eagle's flight from the nest
your spirit will fly.
Hold out! Hold out!
Let waft up the banner!
Show him, show the enemy,
that we stand together faithfully!
He dares to test our old strength,
when the battle-cry rages against us!

Remember your fathers!
Remember the great age.

Do you know who you are? Why are you here? What is the cause of your existence?
Let's begin with the first and (relatively) most simple question. First of all: you're human (you already know that, of course). You belong to the human species, which some consider to be the highest developed species on this planet, and even in the known universe. Now I must disappoint you a little by telling you that this statement is not exactly true. You and I, as a representatives of our kind are currently on our lowest possible plane of existence, where the word "human" has an insulting tone.

Wach auf, wach auf du deutsches Land - Wake up, wake up, you german land!
German folk-song from the 16th century by Johann Walter 1496 - 1570, one of the first patriotic songs in german lands.

The afterlife had been called different names over countless generations. Elysium. Nirvana. Heaven. Paradise. The Great Beyond. Either way, it was far beyond anything she could have possibly imagined. At one moment, she was naked before a vast plain, as wild horses and their riders galloped into horizon. In another, she witnessed the Budapest of her people's dreams break out in endless celebration. At once, she found herself in an immaculately elegant gala, surrounded by the great kings, revolutionaries, heroes and so many others she had called her own

Somewhere near Vaduz. 2010.
With the exception of Sopron, the Alpines found the whole affair utterly surreal as they tried to make sense of the realization that Hungary herself, who was supposed to be another casualty of Doomsday, was right in front of them, spending a tender moment with her daughter. Not that it bothered Austria in the slightest as he joined his old family, having longed for a moment like this ever since their marriage all those years ago. As the day wore on, however, the picnic went back to something resembling peace and calm, though with a haunti
First ContactsIt's the early 24th century, and it's an exciting and somewhat disturbing time for humanity. It has only been a few decades since the development of the new "overdrive", which allows ships to travel at the equivalent of thousands of times the speed of light, superseded the old Lawlor Drive with its practical limit of about thirty times light speed. Humanity is exploding in all directions out of the confines of "civilized space", a roughly ovoid blob of the galaxy some 400 light-years across (although some far-flung colonies lie as much as a hundred light years beyond) containing several thousand populated solar systems.First Contacts1 year ago in Settings More Like This

1917 made in Flandern during ww 1. by Elsa Laura von Wolzogen, but a simple text existed already some centuries ago.
The death rides on a coal-black horse,
he has a nontransparent cape.
When Landsknechte* march to the battlefield,
he allows his horse to gallop next to them.
: Flandern in distress!
In Flandern rides the death :
The death rides on a white horse,
beatiful as a cherub from heaven.
When girls walk their round,
he wants to dance with them.
: Falalala, falalala... :
The death can even touch the drum,
you can feel the beat in your heart.
He drums long and he drums loud,

The following presented are a general overview of some of the major languages spoken this alternate timeline. Due to the peculiar nature of divergences and the ideas behind both the terms "For want of a nail" and "In spite of a nail," it is little surprise to find that the versions of the languages spoken may not necessarily be exactly similar to those used in another world or time. Nonetheless, it should also be kept in mind that native-speaking visitors would find much that is recognizable and in some manner identical.

The world-ship was, after all, some 550 kilometers wide.  Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen design error, the main Small Craft Embarkation Area was only about 8 kilometers from the space-twisting drive, which was destabilized by the blast.After Independence Day1 year ago in Settings More Like This

Prince Eugene, the noble knight,
wanted to get back for the Emperor,
the town and fortress of Belgarad.
He set up a bridge,
that they were able to cross the river,
with the army in front of the town.
When the bridge was set up,
and they could with waggons and weapons,
freely pass the Danube river.
At Semlin was set up the camp,
to expell all the Turks,
for their ridicule and disgust.
On August twenty-first,
came a spy during storm and rain,
vowed to the Prince and showed him,
that the Turks get ready.
So many that you could feel,
that three-hundred-thousand men are coming.
