Re: “I confess, I'm a reformed lover of the antebellum South

It still seems to me that you are reviewing not GWTW, but what people point to as "moonlight and magnolias." That's not GWTW, which is a rough and mean tale of unhappy lives. Yeah, the white people were the racist Southern majority and it reflects their viewpoint, certainly not the best viewpoint of the era, but one that existed. These people had a vantage, like or not, and yet they were still human and relatable to many races and cultures. Because we still need to know that atrocities and injustices are not caused by monsters, but people.The whole point of the story is how they paid for it and regretted their illusions. Scarlett does NOT like the Confederacy and even thinks they should have given the slaves back. As for the handful of slaves who remain at Tara, they are the exceptions and not the rules, and are generally the most intelligent people in the piece. GWTW is a VERY UNHAPPY story. But it has a lot to say that people may not want to hear about the corruption of culture and the sort of demise it might expect.
