What was “positive good”?

What does this term mean?

I’m pretty sure it meant that slavery benefits the country. It helped both the North and the South

positive good was the way the south defended slavery. they said slaves were happy and being taken care of.

Basically the South argued that slavery was good because they were required for their way of life
