So.... an ideal (the CSA), which according to many here, never existed (4yrs). Is somehow more culpable, than a Nation that absolutely existed, & was complacent in slavery for 80+yrs, & a couple hundred years prior as colonies...???Which still doesn't let the Confederacy off the hook. The Confederate nation uniquely founded itself on the very idea of continuing and expanding slavery. That's a bit more culpable than allowing slavery to slip by in the interest of Union, the original sin of the nation.
(Just so you know, we realize the hope in equating past slavery in the whole country with southern slavery under the Confederacy is to sway folks into thinking southern slavery under the Confederacy as somewhat justified by "fair" comparison (i.e. "Mommy, Billy did it too").
That is insane.
