The Northern Myth (that Northerners fought the Evil South to free the slaves) is a matter of religious faith for the ignorant, a paean to the mighty federal government, who has the right to compel any of the formerly sovereign states to do what it wants, to invade those states with armies, make war on the population therein, and kill and destroy until the will of the populace is obliterated. This is a blueprint for internal tyrants to reduce Americans to utter despotism, and even those conservatives who buy into it are promoting the unbridled power of the centralized government.
And no, the so-called Civil War was not fought over slavery. There is no moral justification for Lincoln's war of aggression. (Read the article before hitting me with all the Damn-Yankee talking points.)
I commented over at Freakout Nation, and was quickly banned from further commenting. Ignoramuses do not appreciate any light allowed into their desiccated brains.
