The “Benefits” of Slavery

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 16, 2007

Terrance, who puts out the blog The Republic of T., writes about Virgina’s resolution to apologize for slavery and Virginia delegate FrankHargrove saying that Black people should “get over” slavery.:

“reduced to slavery for his benefit.” The sentiment behind those words is far older than the nearly 150 years that have passed since they were written by our then Chief Justice. It’s also far from dead, and not entirely unrelated from Hargrove’s words. Not to tar all conservatives, or Republicans, with the same brush (though their record speaks for itself) but some of their compatriots have a peculiar preoccupation with defending, justifying, reframing, or just downplaying the history of Americans “peculiar institution.”

Marxist Theory

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 16, 2007

haisanlu posts an article on Marxist theory on his blog Seek The Truth and Serve the People:

Marxian theory disclosed the propelling force and the mechanism of social development. In doing this it has proved that history is not something irregular, and that the various social systems are not the result of chance or haphazard events, but that there is a regular development in a definite direction.
