Secessionist Thinking Revived In America With Controversy And Questions


Suverans2's picture

English must be this author's second or third language; this was painful to read.

But that aside, why is it that virtually all of these advocates of secession fail to take this act to its lowest, (and most moral), common denominator, individual secession?

Is it because they are afraid to act alone that these so-called secessionists adopt the modus operandi of statists, which is that of dragging along with them, kicking and screaming, people not desirous of their goal?

And, why are the freedom loving individuals, who espouse, live and promote "individual secession", ostracized[1] by those most clamorously claiming to be "secessionists", "individualists", "anarchists", "voluntaryists", and "libertarians"?

“To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.” ~ Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
