Why Changing The Way We See The Civil War Will Help Us Preserve Our Country | Talking Points Memo

Liberals and leftists take shelter in a counteroriginalism that attempts to make equality an unimpeachable American value, despite all the evidence to the contrary.

This article is a great read, an interesting argument for the value of re-thinking the Civil War. This quote stung a little, but mostly because it’s true. I do think equality is an American value — I just think we have been very hypocritical about it. But just because historically it hasn’t been an actual value doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t strive to make it one.


I’m super-psyched for the Synthesis update dropping today for No Man’s Sky. I’m hoping to get my hands on it this weekend. I’m thinking that I’ll start a new Permadeath save, and possibly stream it from the beginning.
