This occurred to me today on the 50th Anniversary of the I had a dream speech. I see a lot of the, “If MLK was alive to day…” Well, what if he was? How would the world be different if he wasn’t assassinated?
How would the people who hated him attempt to destroy him? Reveal tapes of his love life? Fake connections to Communism?
One of my favorite time travel premises is a book that examines. “What if you went back in time and stopped Reagan from going into politics? You didn’t have to kill him or anything, just make his movie career more successful, or make him be interested in something else.”
