Societal values are pushed / squashed by political activity. Is the influence of religion increasing? Is skepticism being deemphasized? Help us understand it all...

It's probably only for the combatants though.

The usual Confederacy twaddle about slavery not being an issue at all in the Civil War. It wasn't the only issue, true, but it was probably the most important one.

A former co-worker unfriended me on Facebook over not falling for his "Yankee aggression" and "taking away southern history" bullshit. That and he posted the Confederate flag with what the colors represent; the white border was supposed to be protection from God, but they lost the war. Me thinks my comment on that was the final straw, lol. Good riddance. He's a Dunning-Kruger Effect poster child and religidiot.
