    I've seen counter pieces done on Lincoln and on the question of secession for years.

    Slavery, dress it up any way you want, is one sentient OWNING another against the second sentient's consent. That's just flippin' wrong, full stop.

    This list is pure fantasy. The only real history you have is the WPA interviews, which are in their own way problematic.

    I encourage everyone to use their reading time on something else.

    These books you have never read and i assure you contain the history we are told to ignore. If they were "pure fantasy" I would never recommend them, unless of course it were LOTR.

    I am of the opinion people should back up their claims. Would you care to debate a civil war subject? do you care to prove a specific category in my op is false? though of course you have not read the books so dont even know the stances taken. But i love to show people they are wrong when they think they are correct. Indoctrination is easy to refute. Do you care to debate?

    You assume way too much. These books are among the most circulated lost causer works out there. In fact, it is almost like you've copy pasted from a pre selected list. Historical forums (really the internet generally) very much skew to the "untold" side of history, its unsurprising the the "lost cause" has carved out a deep niche.

    Debate you on what? Your ability to copy paste voluminous text proves nothing. It is a common tactic of try hard polemics to bury their perceived opponent in information. As if quantity itself will overcome their poor intellectual position.

    Your position is flawed from the start. None of these men are experts in their fields, there are no or few primary sources in any of these texts. This is not history, it is a political position working backwards trying to support itself using presentism.

    but since we both see you will not debate if this is actually true, we both are aware you are in fact operating from your political position with no historical support.


    Anytime you wish to man up and try to support your claims. you chose the subject. Making baseless claims and running from debate shows indoctrination needs no historical justification and neither does its followers.
