Understand that the new movie Lincoln is not just by accident. I was waiting to see the movie before making a judgment but I suspect it plays very strongly in justifying a strong central government as opposed to States rights. Slavery was used as a tool by Lincoln to provide a moral justification for a strong central government, the war was never started over slavery nor was it intended to end it. Many students of liberty have argued that Lincoln and the civil war was the turning point in the country away from liberty toward strong central government. Im not an historian but there appears to be some truth to it. After living for 51 years I have learned one thing those that are most lauded are most to be suspected FDR is a great example, he is adored by the left but a serious study shows that he was a disaster for the country long term in creating government entitlements that were supposed to end and didnt, and even short term he prolonged the depression with his antics, much like Obama has sabotaged any serious economic recovery. An excellent book on the craziness of FDR and many other leaders of the time is The Forgotten Man WE are the current Forgotten Men. Once they understood they could pick our pockets every April 15 it has never ended and has only gotten worse.
