The Real Reason for America's Degeneracy in the Past 3 Decades: The Incredible Increase

of mentally ill people holding high positions in both government and the
corporate world. Here is a very convincing article:


I sometimes wonder what might have happened if there had never been a civil war, and

the South had seceded.

My guess: In time world opinion alone, among other things, would have convinced them to abolish slavery. They would have looked so backward as long as they allowed it to continue. There wasn't any other moral choice.

The important thing is that they would have stopped slavery on their own. It wouldn't have been forced down their throats. Their pride wouldn't have been hurt. They are still suffering
from hurt pride today, a century and a half later.

So there would have been two separate countries, or perhaps they might even have rejoined
the Union? The bitterness wouldn't have been there, and quite possibly racism in general would have been less than it is today.

Just musings of mine. What do you think?
