One Third of Californians Favor Secession from the United States

Now that liberals are talking about it, it's a Serious Issue which deserves Careful Consideration.

And I think we should consider it. I think it's time to ask ourselves if it's time for a National Divorce.

What is the point of maintaining a marriage if it makes everyone very unhappy? (And there are no kids involved.)

This is not the same country as it used to be and there's no point pretending otherwise.

I think the history of the twenty-first century will largely be of undoing the artificially-constructed, over-large nation states that were made up in the nineteenth century.

And yeah, the large nation-state is that recent an invention. There's nothing eternal about it.

Nation-states could use some right-sizing. We should not all be competing for the power to make millions of other people's lives miserable. We should just be adults about it and say "Good luck" to each other, and let us each pursue our own right-sized happiness.
