There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.

It's always important to note that the United States actually played a very small part in the worldwide slavery industry. Out of twelve million slaves brought to the New World, the United States only received 600,000, about 5%.
The American blacks and America hating Liberals try very hard to portray the United States as the Slavery Hub of the world, but that is simply untrue, slavery was primarily a Spanish, Portuguese and French enterprise.
Lincoln actually thought it would be good to send the blacks back to Africa, but it's difficult to find comments on that proposal from the blacks, even now.
Hopefully, we haven't had our best president yet. I'd be pleased to be able to move Lincoln down the list a bit.
