So this is a long-shot of a question, but here we go:
I need help tracking down a source. Is anyone familiar with the argument that the Confederacy would have eventually ended slavery peacefully if the South had seceded? I remember reading something to that effect years ago but I can’t find it for the life of me. I thought it was from a neo-confederate source, but maybe it was actually a libertarian. I’ve spent some time Googling and haven’t come up with anything solid. I think whatever I read has been buried by the algorithm.
I’m trying to draw the parallel between “pro-life” Biden supporters saying that Democrat policies will result in fewer abortions with Neo-Confederate apologists arguing that the Confederacy would have eventually ended slavery without the need of a war. This parallel was my first thought when I heard the “pro-life” Bided position, so I think I must have read something that caused me to think this. But memory is a funny thing, so maybe I’ve hoaxed myself?
Thanks in advance.
