So...America from 1880 to 1914
America was a juggernaut
@missliterallywho Wait, did you suggest it, too? Because I remember Server Admin making it shortly after I said we should.
Reconstruction did suck though
@metasophocles I would contend that the culture of the south was mostly destroyed during reconstruction.
America from 1880-1914 was run almost exclusively by NorthEastern Elites.
Black confederate man asking for gibs in confederate money, I'm dyin
Is it actually possible for history to be burned into the genome?
@Tyler0317 I would agree the aristocratic nature of the south was destroyed, but the rugged individualism of westward expansion was implicitly southern
i think reconstruction made the culture of the south even stronger
after it was over there was a big reaction
@metasophocles yea my family had to torch our wealth on the docks.
If that didn't happen, I'd be IE's personal Soros
My family was 1/2 Plantation elites and 1/2 middle class tradesmen.
After reconstruction, they were all made to be paupers.
I’ve recently started the process of joining SAR. Director ancestor fought in revolution then settled in Tennessee
Having been in both the north and the south. The North is far superior and also has a lot less blegs. But The removal of confederate stuff really really gets under my skin for some reason.
I can't even comprehend conducting strategies of "Total War" against my literal cousins.
@Tyler0317 ah so your family as well were involved in the transport of cheap labor and farm equipment?
Walter* not Ronald
Joking of course
Should check out some of the original stuff. Rise and Fall of the Confederacy by Jefferson Davis is very interesting
No problem, haha
I grew up around my Grandfather and his old man friends.
I picked up most of the Southern world view from their discussions.
Unsurprisingly, my grandfather is the most supportive of the efforts of our group.
So...IE brand long leaf tobacco when?
“Was Jefferson Davis right?” and “Why not Freedom!” (Same author as “The South Was Right”) are good reads as well, for anyone interested.
No prob. And YES to Merry Christmas, not Happy Holidays. 🎅🏻
Wow, reading about the world is so blackpilling
I don't know if this is healthy
Was going through my old room at my moms house, found a copy of Doctor Faustus. I have no recollection of ever owning this book, and haven’t lived there since I was 15
It’s not, and sharing isn’t either
