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:
- the inalienable right of secession,
- the international law of secession, and
- the US law of secession.
All three say yes.
Things are heating up, at least in the world of ideas.
