    And considering that America banned slavery long after most European states did even in their colonies--- and was second to last in the Western Hemisphere--- and was the only country which fought a massive civil war over it......
    Third to last, Peru and Brazil remained slave states after the US.

    I think our recent history of FREEING people from slavery has more than made up for our 150 year old past.

    The speed of ending slavery was dependant on nations who used slaves. The problem was american slavery was both too late ei after the civil and too early ie after the civil war. The slavery issue revolved around economics more than anything. The south had grown reliant on factory style plantations which relied on slave labor, such an economic system could have been removed many years before the civil war by a transition away from it, rather than pushing for an abrupt end that would have economically destroyed the south.

    After the civil war the south was reliant on trade and slave labor as it's main economic pillars, which caused an economic collapse far greater than the war did. Lincoln actually did not want the slaves freed right away after the war, he wanted a over time forced buyback of slaves to ensure an economic transition for the south, rather than yanking their entire economy from under it's feet.

    Dems, libs and indies should consider the matter closed and the issue solved.
