Added DiffLines:

* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: In the simulations. In fact, you have to record some of your deaths to show how badly the plan is floundering.

Added DiffLines:

* AfterTheEnd: The 2081 simulation. All governmental authority has collapsed, buildings are decaying with no one to fix them, violent gangs rule the streets, and dogs have gone feral and prey on humans.

* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: The USSR is not only still in existence in 2031, it appears to have enjoyed a renaissance. The Soviet Bloc has expanded to include countries such as Greece and Guatemala. Also, South Africa is run by a black-dominated government that oppresses white people.

** The game treats several of the anti-terror measures Senator Ryder implements as horrifying, or at least worrying, to the scientists back in 2031. Some of them (like random mandatory door-to-door searches) would still be treated that way, but others (like random strip searches at airports) are now commonplace. The constant terror warnings scattered over the cities of 2051 and 2061 also don't really strike most modern players as quite as dystopian as they were originally intended to be.

* AuthorTract: A deconstruction of Reagan-era policies.
** Averted, albeit only slightly, on the trade issue: the game criticized protectionism, which was a policy advocated by labor leaders and others on the American left in the late '80s, when the game was published.
** Also averted, in that neither party has ever advocated a state religion.
** The political plan also called for "vigorous prosecution of tax evasion," which was advocated by Democratic Party Presidential nominee Mike Dukakis in 1988. Also, the calls to strengthen the executive branch and lengthen the presidential term of office weren't specifically right-wing--whichever party holds the presidency has historically favored a strong Presidency.

** If you look at the polling data in Library Mode, you find The Plan (a generally traditionalist-conservative oriented political plan that would represent one of the most dramatic changes to the country in its history) enjoys only 5% less support among liberals than conservatives -- finding such a close split on such a major piece of legislation in the more sharply-divided modern America (which far more minor changes have dramatic 20% splits by political affiliation) is unthinkable.
