Chatter / Re: Is "The South Will Rise Again" a call to treason?

Until they rise in arms, it's nothing.  If they should be so foolish as to rise in arms, then the North, Midwest and West will crush them. Exile the leaders who are not hanged to Ghana, and give the territories to Jamaica.

Appreciate the point that you're making there One.

Still, I figured that his comment was referring to the here and now! I made the mental interpretation "the slogan/chant/mantra is all meaningless until it reaches a point in time when it's not anymore." I figured that this was in relation to the second part of your question!

On further thought though, guess it is possible my interpretation is wrong. Maybe he did mean something else i.e. "everything is meaningless till it's not" which wouldn't really be a proper answer.

I guess the statement could be interpreted either way...

Your initial impression of what I was saying was correct. Certain people have always treated it like a call to treason. Certain people never have, and never will.  And some people in the middle treat it like a placeholder - the way religious people will keep certain Bible verses in their heads each day of the year. And then, once in a great while, something happens to make it relevant to them.

You did choose to communicate in a sarcastic manner to BlackLight first OAA. Technically he/she did give an answer to your question, even if the answer wasn't to your satisfaction.

As far as I could tell, he dropped a platitude that answered nothing. My question was about what people who use this phrase mean by it NOW. To say that it means nothing until it means something is pointless, because he's not saying what people mean by it NOW.
If I told you that a radioactive element decays over time as an answer to "How much of the radioactive element is there now?", would you say I had answered your question?

BlackLight - OAA is not an American and so does not have the background context that you're taking for granted.  So instead of dumping wise-sounding platitudes on him like that, you should spend some time elaborating on what you actually mean.
