Revolution Is Not the Path to Liberty –

July 4, 2014 2 comments

Gary North is out with a short essay, There Will Be No Revolution.

I am tempted to call it the most important essay on advancing liberty since Friedrich Hayek’s The Intellectuals and Socialism, perhaps even more important.I have long argued here at EPJ that direct confrontation with the government makes little sense.

I have also argued that the problem with most revolutions is that generally what occurs is that one bad actor is simply replaced with another.North in his essay argues that this is the nature of revolution. He writes: Revolutions centralize power. In order to fight centralized power militarily, you must centralize power, and this only leads to a shift of loyalty to a new group of centralists…. Revolutionaries have to have a centralized agenda.

Either it’s open, or it isn’t. But there is always a centralized agenda with every revolutionary movement. Every revolutionary always thinks his revolution is going to be the last one. Every revolutionary thinks that when he gets in control of the hierarchical chain of command, things are going to be different.

Secession is a word we have not heard much about for a while. Past secession movements have centered on grievances over tolls and taxes which are not items people have been willing to fight out to the bitter end. Those movements failed because local and state governments eventually addressed the would-be secessionists’ demands.

A CNN travel editor named Chuck Thompson has established himself as a one-man hate group in writing a short book entitled Better Off Without ‘Em: A Northern Manifesto for Southern Secession.”

He advertised his book in an October 20 article in Salon entitled “Just Secede Already.” Oh, if only we could.Hatred of and bigotry toward Southerners is of course nothing new.



The New England “Yankees” of the early nineteenth century thought of themselves as God’s chosen people and deplored the immigration into the country of lesser humans from parts of Europe other than their own little section of the British Isles – especially the loathsome Catholic immigrants from Germany, Ireland, and Italy See Albion’s Seed by David Hackett Fisher.

Chuck Baldwin — Is Secession’s Time Coming Again?

October 17, 2013 3 comments

Pat Buchanan recently wrote an intriguing column titled, “Is Red State America Seceding?” His column clearly reveals that an independence/secession movement is spreading globally.

Pat rightly observes that in just the last few years some 25 nations have broken free of mother countries and formed their own independent states. And, no, most of these separations did NOT require violent revolution. In addition, talk of secession is currently going on in at least six other regions of the world. And, as Buchanan correctly observes, the spirit of secession is very much alive and well in the United States.

Constructive secession by Red States: Real possibility unless King Barack I is stopped « Coach is Right

By Kevin “Coach” Collins


Patrick J. Buchannan has raised the question asked here fifteen months ago: Is there a peaceful civil secession of Red States underway? Originally raised here in July 2012, we asked if there wasn’t a real possibility of what we described as a “constructive secession” which would accomplish what The Confederacy could not achieve.

As we described the situation those states that have grown tired of the overbearing Barack Obama Administration and see it as no longer intolerable could engage in conduct that would amount to de facto if not a de jure secession from the United States.
