Friday, January 12, "Rise Up, and Let the Storm Break Loose" In a world called catastrophe my native tongue is blasphemy - Matthew Good Under the weather here, and under deadline, with no time to write. But that's alright, because I think we're just about beyond words. The wider war that was always coming has almost come, despite the naive wishes of old school Americans of good sense who thought they were choosing another course for their nation last November.
I just came across some interesting evidence. The logical way to figure out the true motivations of the Southern leaders who seceded is to simply read what they said were their motivations. The Declaration of Causes of Seceding States contains southern leaders officially cited reasons for seceding.
Georgia's reasons for seceding: They have endeavored to weaken our security, to disturb our domestic peace and tranquility, and persistently refused to comply with their express constitutional obligations to us in reference to that property.
He means the party is made up of political failures, followers of "condemned" theories, and corrupt individuals who want to protect special interests at the expense of everyone else. However, the thing that brings all these corrupt, evil failures together is their common mission to abolish slavery.
This speaker identifies the mission of "anti-slavery" as the ultimate grievance in a long list of grievances. Here is what Mississippi's leaders had to say about why they seceded.
Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun.
These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization. That blow has been long aimed at the institution, and was at the point of reaching its consummation. There was no choice left us but submission to the mandates of abolition, or a dissolution of the Union, whose principles had been subverted to work out our ruin.
The leader of secession, South Carolina: For many years these laws were executed. But an increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding States to the institution of slavery, has led to a disregard of their obligations, and the laws of the General Government have ceased to effect the objects of the Constitution.
In many of these States the fugitive is discharged from service or labor claimed, and in none of them has the State Government complied with the stipulation made in the Constitution. The State of New Jersey, at an early day, passed a law in conformity with her constitutional obligation; but the current of anti-slavery feeling has led her more recently to enact laws which render inoperative the remedies provided by her own law and by the laws of Congress.
In the State of New York even the right of transit for a slave has been denied by her tribunals; and the States of Ohio and Iowa have refused to surrender to justice fugitives charged with murder, and with inciting servile insurrection in the State of Virginia.
Thus the constituted compact has been deliberately broken and disregarded by the non-slaveholding States, and the consequence follows that South Carolina is released from her obligation.
Finally, this is what Texas had to offer: Her institutions and geographical position established the strongest ties between her and other slave-holding States of the confederacy. In the first scentence, the speaker remarks that Texas only agreed to join the U.Science reporting as it should be Posted on September 26, by Sean Carroll As PZ and Chris Mooney point out, we finally see an article about evolution and creationism that gets it right — by making it clear from the outset that evolutionary theory is well-established science and supported by mountains of .
