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
