The antebellum south was built upon (obviously) slavery


What is being argued by the progressives is that without slavery, our great country would not have made it. What is more, the democratic ideals, political system, and economic system that changed the world and the people that built them are all for naught (as far as honor and glory) because of slavery (whether actual slave owners or those compromises needed to establish one nation) , that without slavery none of it could have happened and because of slavery none of the good that did occur can be credited as a balance to the evil. This black and white, all or nothing thinking, is shockingly similar to the right wing attitude on numerous issues.
