In the US.

It is worth remembering that the British Empire ended slavery over 30 years earlier and Brazil around 30 years later. Neither required bloody wars.

Perhaps US society might be less toxic today if the American Colonies had been given (not taken) independence at roughly the same time as Canada and Australia.
