Has anything changed?
Is there truly any way that the differences can be reconciled? The more I see of current attitudes toward The South, the more I am convinced that there simply is no middle ground upon which the two sides can come together. I mean today – not 1861. When I see the mocking and venomous attacks by Northerners against Southern heritage and culture, I see no hope for true reconciliation. Today’s video and Friday’s video bring this into sharp focus.
This is like asking Islam and Christianity to coexist in the same country – it cannot be done beyond the shallowest politically-mandated coercion.
