I found this to be both an interesting and factually accurate presentation (at least in most things stated) on why the Civil War (or ‘the war of northern aggression,’ however one chooses to call it) was NOT about slavery.
I urge the reader to arrive at their own conclusions based on the evidence. While I despise the institution of slavery and believe that it was a monumental mistake on the part of our nation to have ever engaged in the practice (as we’re clearly seeing firsthand during our time with our gravely dysfunctional ‘African-American’ communities), I generally side with Southerners in recognizing that the Civil War was fought for reasons other than preserving the institution of slavery. There were an array of pressing issues at the time that provoked the South to secede from the Union as opposed to one issue alone – namely, that of slavery.
Slavery as practiced before and during the Civil War was a form of stealing – in this case, stealing humans, shipping them across inhospitable oceans, and forcing them to work without paying them. Whites who were slave owners were, essentially, trying to get something for nothing.
Yeah, they may have paid for those slaves and were responsible for housing and feeding them, but they had no moral or ethical right to do so. They were quite content in their own minds to force negroes to work for them the remainder of their lives with no form of remuneration (yes, I’m quite aware that some slaves earned their freedom and were set free by their slave masters). They wanted something for basically nothing (yes, it’s also true that most Whites did not own slaves).
Moreover, like hiring cheap labor today in the form of illegal immigrants to work our fields, clean our homes, be nannies to our children or mow our lawns, we’re again guilty of trying to get something for nothing.
Many Whites want the physical labor that low-skilled Mexicans provide without all the problems that such a social arrangement brings. We want to sanction hordes of illegal immigrants invading our cities and neighborhoods because it’s supposed to be good for our economy while ignoring the mounting problem we’ve created by doing so – namely, our own racial and cultural displacement!
So, while I generally sympathize with the South and its reasons for breaking from the Union, slavery was perhaps the biggest and most far-reaching mistake this country ever made. We should’ve never paid for the capture of African negroes nor shipped their asses here to the U.S. to work our fields or whatever domestic chores needed to be done on the plantations. This should’ve never been accepted on such a large scale among our people.
These very primitive people have caused us more harm than good in the long run, and our collective guilt and liberal, ‘feel-good’ social policies has led them to utterly decimate a good many of our once grand cities.
We should’ve left them alone. Now we’re stuck with them. Unless we somehow obtain a White ethnostate in the future and are able to break from these people, we’re stuck with typical Dindu dysfunction and criminality as a way of life, the kind we have to see and experience daily while living under a corrupt U.S. government.
Personally, I see the disastrous fruits of our experiment in slavery as God’s judgment upon us, but that’s just me. I also see the current non-White, third-world invasion of the West as God’s judgment upon us too for having abandoned Him and our historic Christian faith. Just like the ancient Israelites were handed over to their pagan enemies by God whenever they abandoned the Torah, so He is doing the same to us who profess to be citizens of a ‘Christian nation.’ He is flooding our lands with hordes of pagans and their strange gods as judgment against our apostasy.
I don’t ask nor expect that everyone will agree with me, but it’s what I have believed for many years.
