The Abbeville Institute is an organization that studies “what is true and valuable in the Southern tradition,” which often means a study of secession and its indispensability as an option for a free society.
Now, as issues like secession slowly make their way into the mainstream, the Abbeville Institute is holding a winter conference, “State Nullification, Secession, and the Human Scale of Political Order” in Charleston, SC. Abbeville President Donald Livingston says this is probably the first such conference since the Civil War! Its coming up in a few months, and any YAL supporters in the area should not miss a chance to go. The modern statists knew they had to end secession as a principle to cement their power. So if we want to roll back the advances of modern statists, its time to rethink secession.
