!!Writing Into the Day - The Wicked Problem and Peculiar Institution of Slavery (Prepping for Exam 2)

According to a Wikipedia article, a '''wicked problem''' is defined as "a problem that is difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements that are often difficult to recognize. The use of the term "wicked" here has come to denote resistance to resolution, rather than evil. Moreover, because of complex interdependencies, the effort to solve one aspect of a wicked problem may reveal or create other problems." [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicked_problem]]

How did the institution of slavery in the South present itself as a '''wicked problem"? That is, why was it difficult to "solve" the problem of slavery? How was the culture and the economy of the South entwined with the practice of slavery?

*On what grounds did George Fitzhugh justify slavery?

*On what grounds did Hinton Rowan Helper condemn slavery?
