Since every system of education is ultimately a tool of the state, the controlling point of view will be that which the state visualizes as its chief source of welfare. In one society it may be commercial skill; in another science and invention. In the Old South it was an ad hoc humanism which produced the gentleman scholar and the political soldier. When one considers this education and this temperament, it comes as no surprise that in the era following Appomattox many Southerners felt impelled to re-enter the forum. Nearly all of them believed that the various Northern statements of the origin of the war rested not only upon misinterpretations of the “constitutional compact” – a phrase dear to Southerners of legal training – but also upon shallow and sophistical theories of society. It was a matter of proclaiming justice among the ruins, but the powerful polemic vein which had run from Patrick Henry to Calhoun and Yancey continued in appreciable volume for more than fifteen years after the collapse of the Confederacy.This polemic persists in a much degraded form today due to that social marginalization of the Southern cause. I have witnessed it at demonstrations where, when faced with open hostility from anti-Southern and/or anti-White protesters our side sought to educate the enraged enemy. Countless times I have seen those on our side write wordy articles online seeking to inform the other side as to the “truth of history” and the “constitutional justice” – as if the enemy accepts us as a valid participant in a social or legal debate and will change its behavior should we somehow “prove” that we were right.
