It's 1819. The US is preparing to make Missouri and Maine new states. One representative insists that slavery shouldn't be allowed in any new state. Another believes it should be a state's right to choose. A compromise is proposed: slavery will be allowed in Missouri and prohibited in Maine. Can you spot the problem with this compromise? Elizabeth Cox explores the middle ground fallacy. [Directed by TOGETHER, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Massassauga].
