08.01 A Nation Divided
Transcript of 08.01 A Nation Divided
“I believe this government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free.”
Abraham Lincoln stated that “I believe this government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free.” From that I feel that he wanted to expose how the nation couldn't be both, how they would have to choose. Also that the government itself in no way, shape, or form deal with two polar opposite ways of life in the same country. From
I feel that Mr. Lincoln wanted to show that America would suffer from the half- slave, half- free arrangement. He tells his true opinion on the topic by stating “I believe this government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free.”
“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”
From “A house divided against itself cannot stand” I get that Lincoln wanted a united nation. He was eager to show how that if the North and the South could not end their differences then America itself could end. Also he compares America to a house and from that I got that he felt that in America there was a certain order just like a house and that order was fragile. Lincoln makes the point that the states were going against themselves as a whole. That is what I get from "A house divided against itself cannot stand."
