Antiwar Radio: Jeffrey Rogers Hummel

Jeffrey Rogers Hummel, associate professor of economics at San Jose State University, discusses the major points of contention on U.S. Civil War history, the inextricable link between the Union and liberty in Northern doctrine, why moral rights should supersede constitutional limitations, how the North could have ended slavery in the South without contesting secession, the inability of chattel slavery-based economies to cope with runaways, the numerous bad precedents set while central governmental power grew during the Civil War and why the Articles of Confederation are better than the Constitution.
