24. Abraham Lincoln: American Dirtbag



If a tyrant isn't careful, the last words they hear might be "Sic Semper Tyrannis." This was true in the case of the vile creature pictured above. An avowed white supremacist, known for lying and lethargy, who exhibited traits of psychopathy at a young age, Lincoln would grow up to be America's first, but not last dictator.



Precedents set by the monster would be used later to justify statism of all varying degrees, including the income tax, inflation, and bloodletting. In this episode of The Agora, we take a detailed look at how and why Lincoln manufactured war with the South, his crimes against humanity and his shredding of the Constitution.
