Founding Father of the American Leviathan State

Abraham Lincoln

Time for school.

For all those who love liberty and limited government....as well as those who need to be schooled about gargantuan government...here is a course that lays it all out.


The course consists of five lectures of 45-60 minutes, followed by 30-45 minutes of Q&A. Everything is online of course, and the lectures and discussions are archived, so that you don't have to be physically there from 5:30 to 7:00 for the next five Thursdays. Here are the nightly topics:

WEEK 1: THE TRUTH ABOUT LINCOLN, RACE, AND SLAVERY

WEEK 2: WHY LINCOLN WAS ELECTED: THE FOUNDING FATHER OF CRONY CAPITALISM

WEEK 3: WAGING WAR ON THE CONSTITUTION: THE LINCOLN DICTATORSHIP

WEEK 4: FOUNDING FATHER OF THE AMERICAN WARFARE STATE

WEEK 5: THE LINCOLN CURSE: DICTATORSHIP, MILITARISM, AND ECONOMIC FASCISM

You used to argue that the war was fought over tariffs. If you have moved off the dime on that, then I commend you for giving up an argument that you hopelessly lost, repeatedly.

No, he only thinks he is. He usually just twists words around, argues things different than stated. King of Strawman—waste of time. Hence on iggy for three years or more now.
You like big govt and empire, that's why you think this. Plus your uninformed on the era. I assure you, Amnorix doesn't have the guts to attend that group of classes. He'd be stomped on pretty hard. He'd be no match.

What "deal" was available? You can't negotiate with people who don't want to negotiate. What could he have offered other than retaining slavery?

Full compensation. Slavers born before a certain date (usually in the future) will remain slaves. Colonization (the south didn't want free african americans). Gradual freedom over many decades. (sometimes up into the 1900's) Numerous other things.

I said that to a particular point—not in this generality you are now using.

But you only talk about Lincoln. You only attack Lincoln. So again, why? And if you just want to attack Lincoln, why do it with something practically everyone at the time was guilty of? That is just dishonest.

So what if I do.

But your adding the word "only" is a lie. I talk about plenty of issues and other politicians. Lincoln just happens to come up and as a hero or great emancipator. That's just not the truth.

I don't have to explain that when this is a political forum where this is what goes on about politicians.

However, telling the truth about a president who is the most whitewashed is not an attack. It's an attack if it's not true. I like to know the truth. That is not dishonest. What is dishonest is the whitewashing of the so-called Honest Abe who was not honest but a politician with an agenda. And I have mainly covered how he dealt secession and his subsequent war—not who put him in power and what for. However, if you want to know, I don't think he was all bad either. For he was going to grant the South mercy after the war; even forgive them their war debts for which he was assassinated. The Radical Republicans were a pretty nasty bunch. Because Johnson was going to carry out his same plan of mercy for which he was impeached. There are plenty of other unsavory characters at the time...as there usually are in politics—a very dirty business.

As for "practically everyone at the time as guilty of" are not my words. They're yours.This is what you do.

I guess those make sense. Did they get any traction?

Neither did Lincoln. And let's be honest here, there were free black men, even in the south that also owned slaves.
