Alternate history Mockumentary where the South wins

Note — I definitely do not endorse slavery, as I believe manual labor ennobles the soul of the Aryan, and having slaves corrupts the soul and eventually the whole civilization.

But I like seeing liberals run away to Canada!

  1. As usual, what mars a lot of these alternate history films and books is the rampant propaganda and misconceptions about the ‘bad guys’ being held up as fact. Not surprising I guess considering how brainwashed and stupid the average viewer is.
    Whether it’s something about if Germany had won the war or of blacks and whites held the opposite places on the social spectrum, too much nonsense is taken for granted as true to make them believable to me.
    I didn’t like how Hitler was portrayed in this one or the over emphasis on slavery while portraying the Confederate States, but the commercials were entertaining (I posted a few on my blog) and I found the bit about Lincoln trying to escape disguised as a negro humorous.

    Manual labor is simply work that needs doing.

    Suppose the Wright Brothers had turned Amish?

    I am doing paint prep on a 67 [former] Caprice. It is simply a pain, a chore. The ennobling part of the restoration is the mental. . .like trying to find a replacement for the #67 bulb.

      If the base of the bulb survives, you can build a replacement using LEDs and a ballast resistor.  The wires from the glass envelope are just soldered to the brass barrel, and the center contact is a drop of solder.

      Tabula Raza,

      The way to rear scientists/engineers/inventors is to give them a moderate dose (4-6 hours a day) of manual repetitive labor, and make the book learning in math and engineering and tinkering in a workshop the “fun” part of their life.

      Philo T. Farnsworth invented the cathode ray tube when he saw electrons dancing in the criss cross furrows of his ploughing work. Henry Ford grew up farming, too. Not sure about Edison.

      Being out there doing repetitive labor like planting or weeding or harvesting gets your mind going in creative and meditative ways. Also, “spiritual” if you want to call it that. It’s no surprise that farmers can be very religious. Spending a lot of time in silence gets you thinking about deep things. I remember when my daughter was about 6 years old, helping me plant garlic, she “figured out the universe,” and explained it to me.

      It’s a terrible shame how kids don’t have that any more. They are constantly attached to electronic devices that drown out the divine trying to speak to them.

    Mindweapon,

    As a kid I recall reading a storybook about Edison. In order to fund his experiments he took on a job as a train vendor, riding trains and hawking candy and snacks to the passengers on board. However, this job took up a great deal of his time. He then hit upon the idea of taking his lab equipment along, setting it up in the train itself. And thus the first mobile laboratory was born.

    So went the story.
