I hate the new editor for writing posts in WordPress so I've installed a plugin that's supposed to revert the editor back to the old one. Just testing it out.
But while I'm here, I can't help but share a point of irony. It's a common meme to say the reason the Civil War was fought was "slavery," as though a single word explains everything. That explanation is horribly inept, but I'm intrigued by what happens if we take it at face value. Abraham Lincoln suspended habeas corpus after Congress passed a bill ostensibly giving him the authority to, even though it was blatantly unconstitutional. Lincoln then used this power to have thousands of people, including government officials like judges and state representatives, assaulted, kidnapped and unlawfully detained.
Ironically, the South's most frequently stated reason for wanting to secede is they feared the North would engage in unconstitutional practices to deny them their constitutional right to have slaves. I'd say Lincoln proved them right.
