Lincoln got better near the end tho. What year is that quote from?

He did, to be fair, but he was never entirely for social equality e.g. John Brown style.

Not really, no. I'm curious what Brown's goals were besides abolition and building a black liberation army

John Brown actually was entirely libertarian and opposed capitalism and wanted things to be owned either collectively or communally (the first according to actions and the second according to family writings). He also supported gender equality, and supported the women's right to vote far before anyone else did. Overall, he was a really fuckin' cool dude.
