First- let me state that this is not a political thread.  If you are roleplaying a character in the US, Uncle Tom's Cabin would be part of your  knowledge base.  The same goes for anyone in Great Britain.  The site is wonderful in that it covers a lot of the ideas that went into Uncle Tom's Cabin, as well as how the ook and characters were turned into apologists for slavery after the Civil War.


A true alternative subculture is one that not only questions the social status quo but poses viable solutions to some of the perceived underlying problems. Difference from the norm is not the same as superiority to the mainstream unless it can be  argued that the difference is positing a better way.
