Futurama isn't my idea of the future.  Think Middle Ages all over again, but not LARPing.

There is a lot of Futurama that makes sense (and a lot that is Laugh-In stuff).  Sometimes, the writers get some serious thoughts in there, and I appreciate that.

I fully admit to being as "YANKEE" as I am "ATHEIST".  Proud to be both.

Want to argue the causes of the Civil War?

The deep cause ... ape men are violent.  Do we need to add more?  New England wanted to secede before the South did.  It is only a problem, because Lincoln made it a problem.  Though I sympathize with Lincoln (as an authoritarian).  Lincoln would have kept slavery (for slow elimination) if it would have caused the South to change its stupid mind.

Yes, the Yankees were OK .. in 1775, and in baseball.

New England was stopped because it was declared illegal.

The South wanted to succeed first because they recognized that the disproportionate power they had over the Federal government (through the Electoral college and counting slaves as 3/5 voters though they couldn't vote at all) was fading.  A

And keep in mind that almost ALL the Southern States had as their reason for succeeding in their State constitutions, to protect slavery.  There is no way to get around what they themselves declared as causes.

Yankees obey the law?  Haha.  Ever hear of Lexington or of John Brown?  New England wanted to join Great Britain during the War of 1812.  It took someone (Jackson) to turn the British tail.  The Northeast would have enslaved the rest of the country (mostly thru bank debt) anyway.  And the British Empire could have enslaved the US eventually anyway (again thru banking).

You simply can't stand anyone south of Pennsylvania or west of Ohio, can you?
