This public notice pronouncing General Leigh Read to be a coward was posted by Whig party leader William Tradewell in March, 1839, after Read refused to apologize or duel following an argument. General Read, a leading Democrat, remarked at the time that if he were going to fight someone, it would be the head of the Whigs, Colonel Augustus Alston.

Hearing this, Colonel Alston challenged Read to a duel. This offer was accepted and the duel set for December 12, 1839. Alston was a seasoned duelist and Read was considered to be as good as dead.

General Read chose the unusual "Yager" hunting rifle with a sensitive hair-trigger with which to duel. The over-confident Colonel Alston, unused to this heavy weapon, lost his balance and fired before he was able to aim. Read then calmly shot Alston in the chest, killing him.

Although the Alston-Read duel was considered "fair", Alston's grieving sisters thought of it as murder. They removed the bullet from Alston's body, and had it melted down and poured into a press to reshape it. They sent it to their older brother-insisting he avenge his brother's death using the same bullet. General Read was shot and killed by Willis Alston in April, 1841.

The bullet rests on the map precisely on top of Tallahassee. The legislature eventually put penalties in place to try to end such violence.

i think he means that charlatans, mountebanks, hustlers, quacks, pecksniffs, confidence-men, humbugs, knaves, swindlers, and prestidigitators of all types can now openly practice their frauds without being lynched in the public square.

if anything, successful frauds are feted in our culture. there is hardly any notion any more of the "dishonorable man" - not as long as he has cash.

i think everything gets merged into a super-category along the lines of "security" - and money is a subset of security. that's an oversimplification, but there seems to be an unconsummated desire on the part of many people to be able to withdraw from the world, and especially from the diktats of the economy.

there is a cross-cutting desire for rootedness. in hipsters, we see this with their focus on "localism." among ARE COUNTRY, this shows up all over the place in country music and in some aspects of politics. among ethnic communities, it shows up as a type of retrenchment. tripa and menudo were falling off the menus of mexican restaurants in the 90's; they are definitely back today.

only indirectly, since he comes up sometimes when people write about the modern lineage of political philosophy from the neo-kantians/marburg school up toward the neuroscience people.

i think he's right that some worldviews/ontological origin stories are completely incompatible, but i'm not as optimistic that these things can be overcome in a pluralistic society. i think it depends on some combination of the percentage of each group in a particular environment, along with the intractability of their beliefs.

for example, the austro-hungarian empire did a decent job at integrating its 12-15% muslim minority, but once that pops up above 25% or so, severe problems take hold.

similarly, we can kind of understand historical instances of religious co-expulsions (muslims from greece and christians from turkey, or hindus and muslims between india and pakistan/east pakistan) along similar lines.

but not all cleavages are religious, of course.
