The Spiritual Cause and Effect of the War to Prevent Southern Independence, part 4

by David Ware

Perhaps no other concept has suffered such a radical deleterious transformation as a result of Lincoln’s War as that of community. The Ante-Bellum agrarian Southern community was a complex connection between human beings and their relationship to their land especially their homeland. All nature and neighbors were included. This is the community that our ancestors lived in. They knew one another. Their fathers knew one another. Their grandfathers, great-grandfathers and great-great grandfathers knew one another.

Today we have the gay community, the black community, the Asian community, the Hispanic community, the retired community, the education community, the homeless community, the poor community, the military community, the medical community, the legal community and all the communities defined by guarded and unguarded subdivisions. The word today is used to separate and divide. Exacerbating the transformation of community is that the Yankee-industrialist-money-oriented culture has created a nation of nomads. People move into various regions of the country to advance careers, because they like the area or because they could sell their house “up North” and move “down South” and live “cheaper.” Additionally, the warfare state started by the Lincoln regime has literally moved millions of people all over the united States in the interest of “national defense.”

Consequently, most people now have no roots in the land or its inhabitants, They believe that the community is complete only because they are in it. They promote the tyrannical forces of planning, zoning, building regulation, confiscatory taxation, fees and other regulation to perpetuate true community. Following in the self-serving hypocrisy leveled at Southern community, the Yankee mentality wants cell phones with no cell towers, electricity with no generating plants, gasoline with no oil refineries, tires with no tire factories and airplanes with no airports. This makes perfect sense to a people that teach that you spend to save, borrow to get out of debt and kill for peace.

This economic structure based on parasitic dependency cannot survive in an environment of true community. This is, of course, one big reason our detractors rail against “the Cause.” Our critics come mainly from academia and the nationalized mass media, which owe their financial existence to promoting the party line that “it was all about slavery.” TM

Destruction of true community is perhaps the most tragic consequence of the events from 1861 to the present. One reason that the Confederate soldier was such a fierce soldier was that he was fighting for his community.

Epitomizing the principle of devotion to his people, Robert E. Lee resigned his commission in the army of the united States. He wrote to his sister: “…..yet in my own person, I had to meet the question whether I should take part against my native state. With all my devotion to the Union and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relatives, my children, my home.”

Our blessed ancestors fought to keep this country from turning our the way it has. Against their will, a self-sufficient independent culture has now been supplanted. We now live in crowded cities, riding on the merry-go-round of consumption, obsolescence, and waste. We are incessantly told that our every need and problem can be met by a gaggle of arrogant bureaucrats administering some program of “compassion.” We are a nation of prostitutes wandering in search of a life filled with no work and endless monetary reward. We stare, glassy eyed as government thugs sexually molest two year olds so that they can board a plane. This today is what it means to be an “American.”
