On December 3, 1863, Frederick Douglass delivered a speech to the Anti-Slavery Society in Philadelphia entitled “Our Work is Not Done.” Douglass talked about the purpose of the Civil War, his meeting with Abraham Lincoln, and the future black Americans.

During his speech Douglass said, “The Democrat Party is for war to keep slavery; it is for peace for slavery; it is FOR habeas corpus for slavery; it is AGAINST habeas corpus for slavery; it was for the Mexican War for slavery; it FOR jury trial for supporters of slavery; it is AGAINST jury trial for fugitive slaves. And it was for the Florida war for slavery.

The Democrat Party has but one principle and one master. And it is guided, governed and directed by it–slavery! “

I very much hope that there is a future for the people in the Middle-East, but as the man in the video says “they are backward”. That backwardness combined with nuclear weapons can lead to mass annihilation. I am certain that I am not alone in hoping that it does not come to that and the world can be brought into the 21st century.
