>Our new government is founded upon exactly [this] idea; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests upon the great truth, that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery -- subordination to the superior race -- is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.
-Alexander Stephens, Confederate Vice President

>We affirm that these ends for which this Government was instituted have been defeated, and the Government itself has been made destructive of them by the action of the non-slaveholding States. Those States have assume the right of deciding upon the propriety of our domestic institutions; and have denied the rights of property established in fifteen of the States and recognized by the Constitution; they have denounced as sinful the institution of slavery; they have permitted open establishment among them of societies, whose avowed object is to disturb the peace and to eloign the property of the citizens of other States. They have encouraged and assisted thousands of our slaves to leave their homes; and those who remain, have been incited by emissaries, books and pictures to servile insurrection.
-South Carolina declaration of secession

>The first act of the black republican party will be to exclude slavery from all the territories, from the District of Columbia, the arsenals and the forts, by the action of the general government. That would be a recognition that slavery is a sin, and confine the institution to its present limits. The moment that slavery is pronounced a moral evil, a sin, by the general government, that moment the safety of the rights of the south will be entirely gone.
-Judge Alexander Hamilton Handy (Mississippi)

Why do people still try to deny that the Southern states seceded to protect the institution of slavery?

>By the spring of 1937, production, profits, and wages had regained their 1929 levels. Unemployment remained high, but it was slightly lower than the 25% rate seen in 1933. The American economy took a sharp downturn in mid-1937, lasting for 13 months through most of 1938. Industrial production declined almost 30 percent and production of durable goods fell even faster.

I don't understand how people can not care that their country's demographics are forever changing, and that they will be replaced in a few generations. I love studying history, and reading about people defending their faith and society to the death is inspiring. Unthinkable amount of blood used to be spilled to protect your country and the people inside of it, and we have large populations of people now that don't care about their nation and their culture and their religion and the ethnic composition of their country. I am truly saddened by the way that places like Europe are headed.

Instead of asking what Germany might have done to win the war, or at least escape total defeat, shouldn't the question be how the hell did they last so long and even get as far as they did?
