(vid) Civil War was Not for Slavery – The South, paying 87% of tariffs seceded; Union attacked the South. Lincoln supported racism – Prager U Video Refuted

I hope James Perloff takes this subject on. He would take this to a new level of understanding for many.

The reason slavery is the popular justification for the Civil War, is that it’s the only way to excuse the gross amount of illegal actions taken by Lincoln for engaging in a war to prevent the Confederacy from having the right to govern themselves. The Civil War was an illegal war, carried out by the North to retain America’s biggest cash crops: cotton and tobacco, and to justify it, the North came up with one of the great lies of history.

Responses to most popular objections in the bottom of description:

Comment
1, Everyone knows the Civil War was for slavery, or so-and-so expert says the Civil War was about slavery or this random guy on YouTube is not an expert

Response: Fallacy of Faulty Appeal of Authority—arguing that a claim is true because someone else believes it

Comment: This guy is a neo-Confederate, or this is the Southern Lost Cause on YouTube

Response: This is a Circumstantial Ad hominem- claiming a person is motivated to make an argument, and therefore, it can’t be true.

Most all other comments that object to the video either present evidence that was debunked in the video (because they probably didn’t watch the whole video) or are not responding to something that was said in the video
