Some of my crazier right wing brethren have brought up secession if Trump loses, and I’ve even seen a handful of people on the left talk about California breaking off to be it’s own nation if Trump wins.
Ignoring that neither of those will ever happen, to what extent do we truly believe in the right of people to govern themselves?
Why shouldn’t people who no longer feel represented by a government get express that by separating bonds? And how small of a body is allowable? A county? A state? A handful of states?
I think a good example of this in action is Catalonia in Spain. If we truly believe in self determination Catalonians should be able to separate from Spain right? Just as South Sudan did from Sudan.
