reenactment politics

This word makes me chuckle. Induces the picture of utterly failed persons in semi-historical uniforms thinking about how they can build up their own illusion of power in a parallel world.

It's a sad truth.

Most people that I know though dont care and only want to have fun, but you always have those 2 3 guys in every group especially those with rank or those that lead the group in some way, and they are very iffy.

It doesn't help that most groups are split-offs from others. Re-enactment politics isn't, or at least shouldn't, be a completely negative term. Where people come together with a common interest or goal, there will be politics. There is debat, deals, trade-offs and conflict. The mistake people make is that we should all be friends. We don't have to and we never will, but we can set aside differences, personal or 'professional' to reach a goal.

That being said, re-enactment politics in the Netherlands is especially cancerous because there is simply no way to distance yourself from the main 'branch' of re-enactment due to gun laws. The NAN is a great organisation until you find yourself at odds with its 'leadership' which have been the same people for two decades. I have no interest to get involved with those people again, but that basically means no re-enacting for me in the Netherlands. Nor for any of our other Dutch members.

I am pretty sure in today's day and age you could pull that off on the streets of any city. Why not look online to see if Louis Vuitton sells it?

You don't need a sword in your cane to wave it angrily at the damn youth of today.

But having a sword in it does allow you to challenge people to duels, though.

Fair point.

Riddlez will be an officer. He'll never challenge the likes of you and me to a duel, simple soldiers rank lower on the social ladder. He'll just have us shot.

We're educated privates, I'm sure we can pass off as officers or gentlemen with the right stolen uniforms.
