: Slavery has rotted every nation that had it...every one. It isn't the only rot, but it's a big one. People are lousy things, they screw up enough without slavery, but with it they are doomed even more.

: All that Southern Fried literature made the point that something essential died or was rotten in the South...and it wasn't on account of the rights of rich white men...it was because of the moral corruptrion that slavery inevitably brings.
xxx FINALLY you get it! Keep thinking! & maybe you should read about the founding fathers a bit more - how many of them owned slaves? Northern industrialists were doing the same thing, just dishing out a few coins here & there to keep other people from calling them slave owners.
