Subject: Any recommended reading on how US states would survive after secession?
Would you have any recommendations on how US states would survive if they indeed seceded? I realize the possibility is unlikely. Most citizens would want to stay together to receive their Medicare/SS benefits from DC. Nevertheless, I ask for curiosity’s sake.
I was watching a video by Frei and Robert Barnes (constitutional lawyers). When the topic got to states seceding from the DC empire, they said it was impractical. Somehow people who argue this just don’t know how agriculture works, they said. The two lawyers agreed secession is just not practical. Despite they are scholarly lawyers, something made me suspect they might be very wrong on the economics of US states seceding.
