Comment: You would rather rely on Woods than on the "reasons" the South

You would rather rely on Woods than on the "reasons" the South

actually gave?

The Secession Commissioners only ever talked about the threat to slave-products -- 80% of Southern GDP was tied to Slavery -- Countries only EVER go to war to expand their current mix of profit-drivers or to find new ones; the South did not go to war to find new profit drivers.

Lincoln also said during the Civil War that he always felt Slavery was Un-just and could not remember a time when he did not feel so.

I think Lincoln was going through a calculated "publically viewed" change of heart.

You accept that the South said they were seceding for "economic" reasons and the right to secede (just because they can?) -- even though 80% of their profit-drivers came from slave-produce; but you will not accept that Lincoln was also playing a public game? It is NOT logical.

How about this -- Will you accept the Declaration of Causes as WRITTEN by the Governors of each Southern State that addresses their reasons for secession AS the actual reason -- or will you still side with Woods ignoring the easy-to-see facts I'm outlining.

Just Google: Declaration of Causes

That should end the debate -- it negates everything any Rothbardian would ever say on the matter -- I mean the Declaration of Causes IS the LISTED REASONS given by each state, hahaha -- if you can't accept that then you'd accept anything.
