Making America was a compromise between democracy and brutality - between pirates and slavers. Piracy was a business, long accepted as valid in America - arguably still accepted today. America held onto it tightly. Once legitimized into a sovereign, slaving nation, piracy moved to the land and became a system of economics only slightly removed from piracy itself. It became our "Manifest Destiny" to spread it across the continent and, eventually the world. See how the Bahamas and its sister colony Carolina became the pirate stronghold that they did through neglect of its wealthy private owners - how pirates came to Carolina and developed a unique conservative ideology that survives today. See where American conservatism began - from New Providence to the Lower Cape Fear - enmeshed in the violent wilderness "beyond the lines of amity" - competition and sport, stealing treasure and burning ships - with Caribbean Buccaneers and Pirates of the Golden Age!
