On the Fact that Brazil (a Country In Which the Practice of Slavery Was Far More Rampant and Brutal than that Which Was Ever Seen In the American South) Was Able to get Rid of Slavery Without Firing a South (Never Mind Perpetrating a War In Which an Entire Civilization Was Destroyed, a Million Freed Blacks Died, etc.)

I think that Murray Rothbard had the best explanation when he pointed out that Brazil (along with pretty much every other country in the hemisphere) never had a populace of insane and piety driven Puritans whose entire goal was to eradicate sin or a President whose entire goal was to keep his tax spigot running.
