Advocacy for secession, both in America and abroad, is often scoffed at as unrealistic. Yet, far from an impossible goal, secession has happened much in history.
In a new editorial, political commentator Patrick J. Buchanan discusses some of the many secessions of the last few hundred years. He also addresses a few of the strong movements for secession across the word right now. And, as a note of caution for people eager to repress movements toward secession, Buchanan comments: “The peace of mankind in the 21st century may well depend upon our ability to accommodate this inexorable secessionist drive to some degree.”
