On balance, of course it was not noble. Slavery outweighed anything good about it, and it needed to be destroyed.

HOWEVER, looking at the hellish, industrial wasteland that much of America became in the decades following the Civil War, and that parts of the North had already become, it seems not completely crazy that however evil and backwards the Confederacy was, they did not want to be dragged kicking and screaming into a world of child labor, factory towns and sweatshops.

I'm sure slave owners took real issue with child labor and sweat shops.

I'm sure it wasn't too hard of a transition. The wages they paid after slavery were probably cheaper than the food, housing and health care they provided to the slaves. The toughest part was probably that they couldn't rape the housekeeper at will anymore.

They may have been hypocritical pieces of trash, but they really, really did take issue with all that quite explicitly. It was a stretch to say that the urban poor of the north were worse off than slaves, but were likely worse off than your rank and file 99%-er Confederate who didn't own any slaves and who did most of the fighting and dying. Of course from today's standpoint, we know that labor ultimately became a viable path to the middle class, but it took decades of violent, bloody struggle to get there and could certainly not have been taken for granted at the time.

In the end, the Confederate's critique of industrial capitalism is quite similar to the one liberals make to this very day, and was integral to later Southern support for the New Deal. I think you can acknowledge this while still maintaining the obvious position that slavery needed to be destroyed at all costs. But god forbid we have any nuance about anything.

Anyway, sorry for the digression. I look forward to MB's review of Lee Ann Womack. Whoever that is.

there's nothing inspiring at all when you think about what's being said. it doesn't the child to go challenge norms, and defy expectations. it asks the child to dance without providing a soundtrack to do so at all without the assistance of a man. it tells her it wants her to feel small next to the ocean. what kind of empowerment is this? depend on men and feel small. thanks mom. women like this are the reason why trump won. strong women, the ones who did the work and fought to be respected thought that women like this would refuse to vote for someone who bragged about grabbing women's pussies. but they were wrong because there is no sisterhood among white women. they all despise one another and throw each other fake emotional connection using black slang as a means of ridicule.

this is pretty clearly intended to be touching i guess, but it really misses the mark. i feel no emotional connection or resonance with this woman's voice, or the song. the steel guitar is boring as shit. there's nothing interesting in the melody at all, and lee ann womak's voice sounds cold and emotionless for something that's supposed be suffused with meaning and empathy. i heard more emotional range from the woman who reads the announcements at my son's school this morning than in this performance. i can guarantee that this woman is absolutely dreadful in bed. no one who sings with this little emotion would possibly do anything but starfish. i'd make some comment about how she's a butterface and that she's unfortunately passed it along to her offspring but that would be sexist. mister bacon is no sexist. this song is not good, the performance sounds like a rejected wal*mart jingle. yeah she's got DSL but she wouldn't know what to do with the D if it slapped her in the face.

I'm no fan of this song, and you're spot on with the fake inspirational shit. But I think what she's going for with "I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean" is less "remember that you're small" and more "remember the world is a big place and there's something out there for you."

In fairness, I hate that song with a passion, bake hating it makes me feel better about my tastes.
