Individual Secession Is A Human Right

I Don't Consent To The System

Just like Anarchy, the idea of secession scares many people. It is simply an extension of the natural human right to dissociate or discriminate. As much as it is painful for many people to recognize, we all discriminate in our daily lives. It is impossible to live one’s life and not discriminate. Desires are infinite and resources are scarce. Therefore we need a rational system to allocate these scarce resources to those people who need them the most and can use them most efficiently. This system appears to be Free Market Capitalism and Austrian Economics. Any subversion of this self regulatory market will invite waste and inefficiency into an otherwise magnificent dance of beauty.


We discriminate when we choose which friends to have and which friends to not have, which people to date and which people to not date, which businesses to patronize and which to not patronize. We discriminate every waking day of our lives in every decision we make. It is unavoidable. My wife is supremely pleased that I discriminate against every other women to spend time with her every night.


When Anarchists and Voluntaryists talk about freedom, it must be the freedom to be a sexist, racist, bigot, homophobe etc. When we speak of freedom of speech it must be the freedom to speak the most offensive things. Nothing is taboo so long as it does not violate the self-ownership or property rights of another individual. No individual has special rights that everyone does not have. The right to secede from a friendship, relationship, or business is identical to the right to secede from the State. Free individuals do not ask permission to be free.

Secession is the Essence of Anarchy

Secession is the Essence of Anarchy, Abraham Lincoln

“What is your goal? Smaller and more homogenous countries/nations/villages?”


Yes I most certainly advocate for decentralization down to the individual. There is no minority greater than the individual. If a “government” claims to defend minorities whilst trampling over the natural rights of peaceful individuals engaging in voluntary trade than that “government” is by definition illegitimate.


I would even go further to say that the idea of a legitimate “government” is an oxymoron. Even if there existed a “government” that did absolutely nothing, it is still subsisting by taxing the people, which is the violent robbery of currency from productive individuals who have legitimately earned that currency by using their talents, skills, and labor in the market.


Taxation is theft. If taxation were truly voluntary then the people would not have to be threatened with kidnapping, being thrown in a cage, being tasered, beaten, or murdered should they elect to not pay. If taxation were indeed voluntary then it no longer be taxation and the State would transform into a business providing a service/good that people voluntarily purchased. This would essentially be peaceful voluntary anarchy.


“Once one concedes that a single world government is not necessary, then where does one logically stop at the permissibility of separate states? If Canada and the United States can be separate nations without being denounced as in a state of impermissible ‘anarchy’, why may not the South secede from the United States? New York State from the Union? New York City from the state? Why may not Manhattan secede? Each neighbourhood? Each block? Each house? Each person?”  ― Murray N. Rothbard

Morality Is Not A Numbers Game

Man With Big Nose and Carrot, A Lie Doesn't Become Truth When Accepted By The Majority

“You seem to be educated enough to realize that there is such thing as an efficient and functional sovereign states (mostly the scandinavian).”

I am not interested in what is functional or works well. I am interested in what is moral and right. Many people thought that a society based on chain slavery was “efficient and functional”. If you have the ability to rob your neighbor and get away with it instead of earning your currency would you do that? I should think not. If it is immoral for you to rob your neighbor by threat of violence to fund what you want, would it be immoral for a large group of your friends to do the very same thing? What about if you elected a representative to do the very same thing on your behalf and call it taxation? Does the morality of the situation change anywhere along the way. I would submit that it has not. Theft is wrong whether done by an individual, group of private individuals, or a group of individuals calling themselves agents of the State.

Morality is not a numbers game. Wrong is wrong no matter if everyone is doing it. Right is right no matter if you are the only one doing it. The laws of morality are as universal and consistent as the laws of mathematics, physics, and thermodynamics. Just because there are people who practice bad mathematics does not invalidate mathematics. In the same way just because there are some people who survive off of theft, assault, rape, and murder does not invalidate morality. If it cannot be universalizable it is an invalid concept.

Anarchy Is All Around Us

Anarchy No Rulers in the Bilbo Baggins Shire


Anarchy is ubiquitous. Anarchy is all around us. All order flows from it. The beautiful and wondrous aspects of our lives that we daily appreciate, emanate from it. Where there is peaceful and voluntary interaction, there is Anarchy. Proclaiming one to be an Anarchist is to recognize this very fundamental truth. It is to say, “I oppose coercion and the initiation of force in all its manifestations. I will do everything in my power to rid the world of it!” Since the State is the supreme manifestation of the initiation of force, one who declares such a statement with logical consistency must be an Anarchist. It is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact it is something to declare with thunderous passion from the mountaintops! Be proud of your allegiance to morality!
