“Secession is in our future”

…or so says the Ludwig von Mises Institute in their latest Mises Daily, written by Clifford Theis, who asks a simple question — can states secede?

Theis gives a three pronged answer to this question, showing the inalienable right to secede, the international law of secession, and the US law of secession, all three of which give the following answer: YES.

Theis writes:

The Declaration of Independence of the United States of America invokes the self-evident truths that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that governments are formed to protect these rights and gain their just powers from the consent of the governed, and that when a government becomes abusive of these rights, it is the right — no, it is the duty — of the people to alter or abolish that government.
