The New Class Within the Nation
As a follow-up to “To Secure the Safety of the North,” the mindset that drove the Northern war effort against the American South is well-explained in the passage below. Undergirded by industrialism and mass-consumerism, and obstructed by an agrarian South and its potential as a new market for Northern trinkets, the pathocrats of radical social reform infested the Lincoln regime would remake the South into an economic colony.

The New Class Within the Nation:
“Pathocracy is a disease of great social movements followed by entire societies, nations, and empires. In the course of human history, it has affected social, political, and religious movements as well as the accompanying ideologies and turned them into caricatures of themselves. This occurred as a result of the participation of pathological agents in a pathodynamically similar process. That explains why all the pathocracies of the world are, and have been, so similar in their essential properties.
“…Identifying these phenomena through history and properly qualifying them according to their true nature and contents – not according to the ideology in question, which succumbed to the process of caricaturization—is a job for historians….The actions of

[pathocracy] affect an entire society, starting with the leaders and infiltrating every town, business, and institution. The pathological social structure gradually covers the entire country creating a “new class” within that nation. This privileged class [of pathocrats] feels permanently threatened by the “others”,
i.e. by the majority of normal people. Neither do the pathocrats entertain any illusions about their personal fate should there be a return to the system of normal man.”
