Donate $10 or more and I will send you an extended essay, The Agility of Tyranny: Historical Roots of Black Lives Matter (24 pp, ds). The essay uses dozens of references to trace the treatment of Africans, first by Europe and then the US, which in 1776 carried out a successful pro-slavery counter-revolution largely to separate itself from a British home country that was moving towards abolishing slavery. It then tracks enslavement from the Northern to Southern states, looks at whether there is any evidence that the Civil War was fought to 'end slavery', then covers the rapid and more brutal re-enslavement of African Americans, to their contemporary mass incarceration and continued enslavement, to today's movement.
