Goodness who would be jealous of a way of life that was the model for the world, well at least the world of Nazi Germany and Apartheid South Africa.

Oh puleeze Scarlet, isn't it time to drop the oh so offended southern belle routine?

Signed,

Just sling mud at the minorities, right?

Basic logic is beyond your comprehension level.

Your side lost, and will be a footnote in history.

Correct. The reality is, if they had been allowed to continue slavery, and stand alone, the Confederate States would have the economy now of a third world, small country.

Believe which? That you don't understand logic? You actually believe that "animals do it, so can we!" is a valid argument.

That your side lost? History. That your side will be a historical footnote? History, to anywhere outside the south.

But please, don't stop. Your idiocy is endlessly amusing.

But they didn't fight for individual rights. Scratch that - they fought for their own rights against the horrors of tariffs and taxes, but paid no heed to the millions of people in horrible bondage, suffering far worse than they ever would.

Yeah, cry me a river.
"So high tariffs are worse than slavery?"

You know, it's frustrating enough when people don't stick to the topic. But it's doubly so when it's your own topic. You're the one who started this debate. Why don't you try sticking to it? Let's see...start a debate on one topic, someone replies disagreeing with it, you respond with emotional appeals unrelated to the topic...I'm going to guess you're a Democrat.

Yes, if left to their own devices they would probably be akin to places like Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Yemen etc. that kept slavery well into the 20th century. The fact is slavery and capitalism cannot co-exist because a wage labor economy is central to the latter and without at least some amount of capitalism there is a limit to how much of an economy you can have.

Of course this fundamental economic weakness at the core of the south was why the pretty much lost as soon as they fired on Fort Sumter.
