This polarization makes one wonder what if this could all be changed? What if America was a nation where all are fundamentally equal under the law, corporations are punished for malfeasance and everyone enjoys the benefits of freedom and prosperity? What if the US was a force that stands, not for its own hegemonic gain, but for genuine belief in freedom and the fight against tyranny of all forms? And most importantly, what if one woman proved to be the key that put America on this better and more just path? This alternate scenario is explored by one ''Sergeant Heretic'' of AlternateHistoryDotCom in her timeline in the "{{alien space bats}}" section ''The {{ISOT}}'d House: One Woman Goes from 2012 to 1952''.

* AynRand: Her views are thoroughly rebuked in this timeline, through it does become a rallying point for the corporate elite.



* UsefulNotes/ColdWar: Due to Janet's efforts, it ends much, much earlier with the US and USSR ushering in a new era of cooperation. With the USSR's hardline approach in the 1980s and their invasion of Pakistan, a bit of MakeTheBearAngryAgain develops, but things seem to have settled down again through the 1990s and 2000s, as the Soviet Premier and US President continue to hold summit meetings and "officially" deny close cooperation in covert activities to suss out new threats to the world.



* UsefulNotes/VietnamWar: One of Janet's main goals is to prevent this from occurring. [[spoiler:She succeeds and Vietnam under Ho Chi Minh becomes a key US ally. However, the Central African War becomes like this.]]

* EnemyMine: [[spoiler: [=WW3=] is made up of alliances consisting of this--we have the LABARO Fascists and MaoZedong vs the US and USSR in WWIII, the victory of the US and USSR leads to an era of cooperation between the two powers and an informal end to the UsefulNotes/ColdWar]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: the SyntheticPlague [=CRIME=] virus Mark Two creates the Nightsiders, who are criminal masterminds who shun rape, brutality, and other crimes of assault and violation in favor or racketeering, black market trades and other [[XanatosGambit Xanatos Gambits]] to gain power.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: In this TL Michelle Bachmann is an unscupulous Dr. in charge of a project to turn the bastard children of Michael Clifton Jr. and over a hundred volunteer "mothers' into super soldiers that are potentially disposable.
* EvilVersusEvil: The various factions in Africa in a nutshell, on one hand you have the Lord's Resistance army and Joseph Kony, along with the various warlords in Somalia and Africa as a whole, and on the other hand you have a corrupt corporatist regime in the Congo run by greedy businessmen that is a thinly veiled expy of the Draka along with the Apartheid system in South Africa, which has lasted a bit longer than OTL. All of them fight for land and resources while expoliting and enslaving millions and committing horrendous atrocities and human rights violation against innocent civilians. The US declares war on these factions in the 1990s to set things right in Africa. However, as we soon find out, the aftershocks of the armed intervention there makes the problems get worse instead of solving them.
