Garrison implies that the North is complicit in supporting enslavement because they care more about the idea of a united country than about freedom and equality of all its citizens.

Which detail from the speech best conveys this idea?

"By no precedent, no example, no law, no compact, no purchase, no bequest, no inheritance, no combination of circumstances, is slaveholding right or justifiable."

"…it is only necessary for that power to crack the whip of disunion over her head, as it has done again and again, and she will cower and obey like a plantation slave—for has she not sworn that she will sacrifice everything in heaven and on earth, rather than the Union?"

"As Nero fiddled while Rome was burning, so the slaveholding spirit of this nation rejoices, as one barrier of liberty after another is destroyed, and fresh victims are multiplied for the cotton-field and the auction-block."

"Such, at least, is the verdict of my own soul, on the supposition that I am to be the slave; that my wife is to be sold from me for the vilest purposes; that my children are to be torn from my arms, and disposed of to the highest bidder, like sheep in the market."

  • The detail of the speech that best conveys the idea that the government allows slavery as long as the union is maintained is the excerpt:

    We can arrive at this answer because:

    • The excerpt shows that Nero did not care about the burning of Rome, as long as the music played by the violin was not interrupted, even if the fire was destroying the region.
    • Similarly, the American government has maintained and acted insufficiently in relation to slavery, allowing it to grow and consume the country, equal to the fire of Rome, as long as the Union is maintained.

    In this case, we can say that the author of the text, underscoring the coldness with which the rulers saw the slaves and the maintenance of slavery, was something cruel, as long as there was no secession in the country.
