Why Southern Pride Must Be Destroyed

Anybody who thinks the civil war and the Confederacy are not indelible factors in the history, the culture and very substance of the South -- including Southern pride -- is a compleat idiot.

The whole purpose of current attacks on the Confederacy and its memory and heritage (not to mention re-stocking the South with people from elsewhere) is to drill an unfillable hole in Southern pride that will, hopefully, shatter it forever -- and thus, to define the south as little more than a compass point (with a lower case "s"), regional cuisine and regional sports -- and to ultimately enfold and homogenize it into the conglomeration known as the United States.

In other words, to change it from That to This.

But, of course, changing That to This ... destroys That.
