Patrick Buchanan on Secession
“The West is decomposing”
There’s not really anything new here that wasn’t brought up in States Filing Petitions For Secession or sentiments that haven’t ever been expressed by Patrick Buchanan before, but I wanted to share it. In a nutshell, Buchanan writes about how fragmented American society has become and brings up the historical precedent for secession in this article. He even mentions the situation in Catalonia and other places around Europe flirting with the idea of secession. I got a chuckle out of the tongue-in-cheek line about how Super Bowl Sunday has become the one holy day that everyone can agree upon in America.
Anyways, it’s an article worth reading for those of you who have been following the secession thing. Even though I think most of the coverage of it is based around generating some shocking headlines, I’m still surprised that this idea is getting bounced around in mainstream circles and PJB is getting a little more explicit about it.
