COMMENT: **** Highly Recommended******
As is quite clear, I am a real fan of Deanna Spingola, as her shows are “No Holds Barred History UNvarnished”.
My curiosity was piqued via her critiques on many propogandized heroes. It appears that many alleged heroes have pedestals built on sand…to the point that they more a person appears to be honoured, the more dirt they seem to have.
This interview pinpointed what I have come across…that the Southern US was not the problem in the Civil War ….and not the “racist rebel redneck” region at all.
The US Civil War may have in fact, been the first quasi -Bolshevik Revolution, whereby “no- holds- barred- civilians- are -fair -game- scorched -earth -policy.
This interview delves into the U.S .evolution into a “Centralized” aka “Socialist Gov’t” over 160 years ago…..
“Honest Abe Lincoln” does NOT come out looking very good after one listens to this interview.
This was not a matter of freeing the slaves….apparently the slaves were treated far better in the South than the North(which retained slavery after the Civil War)
This seemed to be a war between “Puritanism/Unitarianism”(NORTH) versus the Christian SOUTH.
Again, the Victors write history..no matter how much they rob, steal, rape, pillage, murder……..and as Ms. Spingola said….perhaps Historians leave far more OUT than they record or editorialize/propogandize.
This seems to set the foundation for much of what we see in the world today.
