Slavery is wrong and immoral! It must be abolished!As a former slave, trust me. I know the experiences of slaves first hand.
No it isn't. I've owned many slaves and not a single one has ever complained. You're just trying to take away our laborers.
No, I'm trying to attain equal rights for all people! You most likely prevent your slaves from speaking out any way! If you read my book, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, you would understand!
John C. Calhoun
But Calhoun, slavery is a brutal practice. Shouldn't we be trying to abolish it?
Slavery is a "common good" for the people. Without it, the Union will collapse! We must protect the institution and end all abolitionist work!
NO! Slavery is good. The South needs it, and abolitionist such as yourself need to be silenced! Your a threat to our future!
Who says so?
Slavery needs to be abolished! Those that are enslaved are not equal or free! It's unconstitutional and immoral!
It was stated in the Declaration of Independence! "All men are created equal"! People forced to work for another person against their will is not equality! It also goes against Quaker beliefs!
