Secession Blues


In the wake of last Tuesday’s election results, there’s been some talk on the left about the possibility of the blue states seceding from the red states. Most of this talk has been tongue in cheek, but divisions in the country are deep enough right now that the idea of secession has a better chance of making headway now than it has had for a long time. Although Austro-libertarians are no great fans of either red-state values or blue-state values, I think we could benefit by pushing this idea; see my comments here: http://praxeology.net/unblog11-04.htm#07 http://praxeology.net/unblog11-04.htm#08
