    There's plenty of dispute/controversy about that.

    Apparently the south considered their slaves valuable enough to start a war to keep them.

    But, the country was too strongly divided about the institution to decide on a peaceful resolution to phase slavery out gradually. So, we saw what happens when people refuse to consider compromise.

    Our political leaders are supposed to bring us together. There's plenty of guilt to go around due to inflexibility.

    Not that much as it was used primarily for commercial agriculture and as years went on, more and more for cash crops as opposed to crops for food general food.

    Now, interestingly enough, the textiles generated with that cotton went to the textile mills in New England and there it made a significant contribution to the Gross National product. That was also paid labor.

    Slavery is not 'free labor'.

    @Simple Mind : For sure the Yahoo automatic reader/selector spotted the word "slavery" and associated it to Israel (Asrael).
