ideas whose time has come: “Secession Is in Our Future” - Clifford F. Thies - Mises Institute

A few weeks ago, I was talking about separating Brooklyn Centre from the City of Cleveland, and having Ohio City and a few other viable entities do the same. Now, here’s a guy entertaining a similar idea, but relative to the states and the federal government.

Can states secede? There are three levels on which this question can be answered:

  1. the inalienable right of secession,
  2. the international law of secession, and
  3. the US law of secession.

    All three say yes.

Things are heating up, at least in the world of ideas.
