Hoooo boy.

A lot of misconception in that youtube discussion.
(1st one)
Good vid btw.

Commenters, I don't know if you agree with me, but elevating principles above the mightily superficial (public education influenced) narrow example based arguments should put them in their place if they have any sense of critical thought. Yeah, slavery was horrible (and still is.. ahem..) but don't fight their fight. That's tunnel vision.

Elevate the discussion beyond the specifics abhorrent to today's mode of thinking to a reflective capacity. Turn them around with word-fu.

Principles are not actions, they are foundations of ways of being. As such commonwealth principles do not condone sadism, rather they oppose it on a higher level. History cannot be rewritten but we can change the here and now.
