Were there economic incentives for this to happen? Was it a change in general perception, philosophy or thought? It seems like the best thing for the white males to do was to continue the enslavement of women and black people. Why all of the sudden white men acted against their own self interest?

Because it was the right thing to do, right wing anti-Lincoln conspiracies aside.

Well I guess that about clears everything up.
