Georgia League of the South

Wisdom ~ Justice ~ Moderation

A culture grows up like a nation does. It is based on a common faith, common social customs, and a common geographic area. Does Georgia possess a distinct culture? It did at one time. For the last 150 years the Imperial Yankee culture of the northeast has been molding Georgia–and the South in general–into its “perfect” image. First, it has done so through derision in the public institutions and publications; then through war, public education, the electronic and print media, the corporate churches, and invasion. This re-molding continues today. The South is, and always has been, a distinct culture. If this is not true, why are we called the “Bible Belt.”
