    @Bob Cesca

    I’m not sure if you’re sure how familiar you are with alternate history but at the websites dedicated to that subject Confederate victory scenarios are about as well regarded as Operation Seelowe. Things that could never happen without the direct intervention of alien space bats. The most annoying aspect of the proponents of the “Glorious Lost Cause” AKA Southern apologists, besides the denial that the war was fought over slavery and overt bigotry, is the idea that history somehow would have been frozen in amber at around 1860.

    Even if the CSA managed to pull out some sort of victory it would be an incoherent mess. A weak, corrupt
    central government, little industry and massive dependance upon imports of finished goods from Europe. Even if if didn’t atomize like you suggested, sometime around 1870 the writings of Karl Marx would have arrived and a vast population of slaves would have been the ideal audience for that. As a consequence a large standing army would have been necessary due to the inevitable uprisings. The irony is that the surviving Union would have eventually been better off with the reforms of the equivalent to the Progressive era or New Deal being deeper and longer lasting without the South being a roadblock to progress. The South on the other hand would have been an absolute hellhole, probably falling into military dictatorship. It might have limped into the early twentieth century until the boll weevil destroyed what remained of the economy.

    The trouble is that there is a large segment of American politics, particularly Southern conservatives, who seem to think that the ideas of governance in the CSA were not given enough of a chance. This has manifested in the form low taxes at any cost. That corporations should be free to do whatever they want even if it robs millions of people of their future. And worst of all the notion that a weak, ineffective government that only responds to the highest bidder is somehow desirable.

    Shorter Rudy Giuliani (cue strings) – “You don’t bring me flowers”. When did Giuliani become Mr. Sensitive.
