A Trifle Eerie...

The NYT begins a continuing series yesterday on how things were 150 years ago on the eve of the Second Civil War, also known as the War of Northern Aggression.

More interesting still -- the article refers to November 1st as "the last ordinary day".

Been a long time since anything in the NYT made me pause.

A long time.

I always pause for the NYT, when I wipe my arse with it. Not eerie at all. Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it.

By expressing, in any waty, sympathy with the Southern slaveocracy, you doom any movement for individual freedom. It's not for nothing that George Fitzhugh, radical defender of the South and slavery, said that "Slavery is the higheast and best form of socialism."

I realize that WRSP are not paleocons or neo-Confederates. But you are muddying the waters with statements like "the war of northern aggression."

Mr. Sabotta,
You show a shocking lack of knowledge of the actual causes of the war of Southern Succession.
Slavery was NOT the cause,
"If I could maintain the union without freeing a single slave I would" - Abraham (American Ceasar) Lincoln

The "Moral High Ground" was conferred upon (as it always is) AFTER the war. The issue of slavery was not addressed until 1863 as a spur to "conscientious objectors" to enlist in combat posts.
I could continue but I won't.

I see that someone here has been indoctrinated at a government school.
