  • Ah, how history repeats itself! Oh, and would it be very unpopular to suggest slavery still exists in the USA? Take a look at the penal system, consider how important 'prisoners' are to the economy, that once embroiled you're more-or-less guaranteed to return to prison, and the overwhelming majority of prisoners are of low socioeconomic status who happen to be mostly black... ...I am absolutely not a fan of "positive discrimination" at all but neither am I a fan of actively relegating large sections of society to a permanent underclass, especially where state-run institutions are part of the reason.

  • Interestingly, the ruling of Dred Scott Vs Sanford was done by a Supreme Court in Union Territory and the mention of slavery was not brought up until 1.5 years after the onset of the Civil War to deter the French from supplying the South of goods and arms. The onset of the Civil War began from the unjustified taxes and tariffs of the southern trade.

  • Fun fact, when the north launched their slavery campaign to regain support from the population for the unpopular war many northern soldiers began hating the slaves. It was horrifying and sad but slaves were nothing more than political pawns for Lincoln, who quoted; “if I could preserve the union without freeing a single slave, I would gladly.”

    • Technically, if what I presume the flag you are talking about is correct, the modern flag is the Confederate Flag. Yes, it didn’t exist back then during the war (so congrats to Oversimplified for getting that right,) and the ‘modern’ flag was made in the 50s-60s, with the rise of civil rights act.

  • Seeing the parallels from the civil war to today actually make me sympathize some for the confederates. Now understandably at the end of the day the union has the upperhand of morality because they were anti slavery. But strip that away and the majority of southerners were simply people who weren’t being represented by the federal government, the federal government wasn’t upholding the constitution, their economic stability was threatened, and they were suppressed and abused by the federal government. I honestly can’t even call them traitors because they weren’t being represented by a UNITED states that regarded their opinions as valid. This is happening today, the leftists in government have teamed up with rich billionaires to create a similar atmosphere, except this time the “union” isn’t on the moral highground they are authoritarians. Its also not even partisan at this point, its worse if you supported trump you’re demonized, defamed, verbally and physically abused, unrepresented by your government, and kicked off of platforms by corporatist social media monopolists. Yes this is tyranny, its not okay that careerist cronies in government get to sell out to robber baron social media firms to strip away basic rights from trump supporters. I personally have voted democrat and am no longer doing so. The party no longer serves the constitution, free market capitalism, the middle class, freedom, or unity. And to that point neither does the republican party, this is why there needs to be a new party. One that upholds the constitution, holds government and corporate oligarchs and monopolies accountable, protects the middle class common american, unifies all Americans irregardless of race political affiliation etc., promotes capitalism, and most importantly puts freedom first. I do not want to see a mistake like state secession happen again, the common american needs to reclaim accurate and non corrupt representation in this country. Americans deserve freedom.
