Break Up the US: The Libertarian Principle of Secession posted 01/29/2015, 6:04 PM (Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.)
[Category: Commentary]
For a century and a half, the idea of secession has been systematically demonized among the American public. The government schools spin fairy tales about the “indivisible Union” and the wise statesmen who fought to preserve it. Decentralization is portrayed as unsophisticated and backward, while nationalism and centralization are made to seem progressive and inevitable.
