Kim Iversen details shocking poll numbers that show a large number of Americans want part of the country to secede.
American people: Let’s start a revolutionary civil war. Right after the new season of the witcher.
This article was written in the summer of 2020 during the George Floyd riots. By Damon Linker, The Week All week I’ve been haunted by a brief few seconds of video posted on Twitter late Sunday night by a student journalist in Eugene, Oregon. Two men face off […]
Now that pan-secessionism has entered the mainstream discourse, at least on a casual level, the next step for those of us with a more radical perspective is to keep pushing the envelope toward more radical viewpoints, away from Democratic Partyism and Republican Partyism toward the intellectual framework associated […]
The backdrop may be “the wealthy have rigged the system” but the impetus for seccession is that the majority of those in red and blue states have different values and do not want those values at the core of how they are governed. The other big challenge is […]
Banned Hipster Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. — H. L. Mencken It’s a fantasy for right-wing white males. It’s a specifically male thing, because males like violence, and violence seems simple. The […]
This author inadvertently explains why conventional “federalism” or “states’ rights” are not sufficient, and why a more radical approach is needed. By Karol Markowicz New York Post Is it time for a national divorce? The idea has understandably gained steam — though it can’t possibly work and shouldn’t. […]
By David Reaboi The National Divorce discussion prepares the ground for crucial thinking about what comes next in America, as the country grows even more divided, bitter, and angry. For the last several years, I’ve been among a handful of commentators (along with good friends Michael Malice, Jesse […]
W. James Antle III, The Week Citing irreconcilable differences, many commentators on both sides of the red-blue divide have begun channeling country singer Tammy Wynette and contemplating a national divorce. The sentiment appears strongest on the right. Claremont Institute fellow David Reaboi warns of a future in which “the […]
An article from 2018 advocating splitting the US into a Red Federation, Blue Federation, and Neutral Federation. By Sasha Issenberg, The Intelligencer The year is 2019. California’s new governor, Gavin Newsom, recently elected on a platform that included support for the creation of a single-payer health-care system, now […]
No, We Can’t Get a National Divorce There’s growing sentiment for secession, particularly on the right. It should be rejected.
I’m increasingly seeing articles like this in the mainstream media. The system is getting worried. By Ed Kilgore, Intelligencer Nobody has to convince me the divisions between the “red” and “blue” segments of our country are deep, bitter, and authentic. That and a closely related topic, the radicalization […]
The next thing that needs to happen in order to advance pan-secessionism is not only for more active on the ground movements to develop but also for a national leader to emerge that calls for macro-level pan-secessionism on a meta-level. By Steven Malanga City Journal A new poll […]
By Brett Pulley and Brenton Mock, Bloomberg Atlanta’s wealthiest and whitest suburb wants to secede. READ MORE
Some years back, I rolled out the idea of a “pan-secessionist meta-party” as a means of implementing the wider ATS “anarcho-populist” strategy that I outlined some years before that. The most recent polling data, involving a poll taken by the University of Virginia Center for Politics, indicates that […]
Approximately 52% of Trump voters (about 38 million of 74 million people) and 40% of Biden (about 32 million of 80 million people) now hold at least casual pan-secessionist sympathies. My guess is that the percentage of non-voters (about another 80 million) with a favorable view of pan-secession […]
Todd Lewis will be joined by Keith Preston, Swithun Dobson and Terminal Philosophy to discuss Robert Kagan’s new article in the Washington Post on his prediction of a Constitutional crisis.
This latest poll indicates the greatest amount of support I have seen to date for macro-level pan-secession. The speaker in the video is correct that simply dividing the nation into a Blue country and a Red country is impractical. We need far more diversity and decentralization than that. […]
By La Resistance Media The Balkanization of the Union It is not news that there are irreconcilable political, economic, and cultural divisions in the U.S. What makes these divisions a force of fragmentation, or social cleavages, is that these tend to overlap between each other and a geographical […]
Some handwringing from Neocon Review, and this piece is two years old, from before the pandemic. By Fred Bauer, National Review In the latest issue of The Atlantic, James Fallows turns to the fall of the Roman empire and finds that it wasn’t all that bad! “Late antiquity” […]
David French, a Bill Kristol flunkie, is concerned an American breakup will ruin the neocons’ plans for world domination. He outlines a proposal for “federalism” without an actual breakup, and a leftist writer from Slate points out some of the practical problems associated with pan-secessionism along with common […]
These guys appear to be an actual on-the-ground, pan-anarchist, pan-secessionist movement. And whether left-wing anarchists like these guys or not, left-wing anarchists who are developing mutual aid networks of their own or creating separatist movements like CHAZ are in the club as well. I suspect that as pan-secessionist […]
This is not a scientifically conducted study using a neutral sample, but these numbers are still interesting.
Make it happen. By Greg Russell The National HE is a controversial figure in some parts of the US, choosing to spend most of his time at his home in Russia, however Louis Marinelli is set to return to California as the voice of its independence movement Calexit […]
Secessionist sympathy has nearly doubled in the last decade. Micro-level and intermediate-level secessionist actions have taken place. But macro-level secession is still on the margins in terms of on-the-ground action. That is what needs to change. How do we get this ball rolling? By Patrick Strickland Dallas Observer […]
The earliest polls concerning the popularity of modern secessionist movements began in the late 2000s at the end of the George W. Bush era. At that time, about 1 in 5 Americans expressed a casual sympathy for secession. Now it’s up to almost 2 in 5. However, no […]
We now have a number of test models for the pan-secessionist concept. Many ATS readers are younger people who likely do not recall how intense the “war on drugs” propaganda was in the 1980s and 1990s. At that time, the war on terrorism hadn’t yet begun, and the […]
Class Reductionists, Red/Brown Alliancers, and Maximal Culture Warriors are All Strengthening Pan-Secessionism
It’s like ATS now has a de facto mass army of inadvertent troops, comprised almost entirely of folks who have never heard of us and wouldn’t like us if they had. As most readers know, I have long been an advocate of a political realignment along decentralist vs. […]
Talk about missing the forest for the trees, or perhaps seeing the forest in spite of the trees.
When I founded Attack the System over 20 years ago, my objective was to lay the blueprint for an insurgent anarchist movement in North America that could eventually take down the US regime and ruling class, in solidarity with those under attack by US imperialism in each of […]
By Richard Kreitner, The New York Review Disunion is hardly a new theme in American politics. In this moment of tumult, it would be unwise to rule out its return. fter what even Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell called, with surprising accuracy, a “failed insurrection” at the United […]
There is no one in leadership currently on the so called “Left” has the will or the intestinal fortitude to stand up to the ruling class. Even if there was someone who was capable of fighting back, that person would be immediately eliminated… So we’re screwed!
The Tom Woods Show It’s more and more obvious that the differences within the United States are irreconcilable. Some form of peaceful separation is clearly the only humane solution. Historian Brion McClanahan joins me to discuss what that would look like in practical terms. LISTEN HERE
As concepts like startup societies and pan-secessionism become more pervasive, it is likely that such activities will originate from many different sources, including billionaire philanthropists, communes, religious communities, eco-villages, and many other things. By Adam Williams New Atlas American entrepreneur Marc Lore has revealed an incredibly ambitious plan to […]
Increasingly, I am coming across more and more articles of this kind, both in the liberal and conservative media, including in publications like GQ that aren’t primarily political. When I first started promoting the idea of pan-secessionism, most sympathizers were, as Matthew Lyons pointed out, “a wide variety […]
This is obviously a mixed bag because it is reminiscent of the “company towns” of the industrial revolution but, big picture-wise, I believe this helps fuel the pan-secessionist strategic paradigm in the same way that CHAZ/CHOP was a step in the right direction from the other side of […]
Some interesting commentary from a hardline Red Tribe perspective. When all mainstream institutions are captured, is the right answer to break up from the techno-fascist state?
If the post-United States lacks a federal government altogether, we will probably end up looking something like ancient Greece.
There is a good number of threads on Quora discussing this idea. It is clear that pan-secessionist ideas are increasingly working their way into the mainstream and being discussed more seriously by a greater number of people from many different points on the political and cultural spectrum. Over […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Do you smell that, dearest motherfuckers? Secession is in the air and not just among freaky anarchists like me. From coast to coast, from border to border, Americans of all stripes, shades and sizes are openly discussing and […]
Toyota just started building a 175-acre smart city at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. Photos offer a glimpse of what the ‘Woven City’ will look like.
There is an upside and a downside to this kind of thing. On one hand, I am all for private cities as an alternative to states. On the other hand, many of these could end up being modern versions of feudal fiefdoms or company towns during the industrial […]
This is the future and the past. Look at the Hanse cities. Worked really well back then.
Governments across the globe have begun evolving from lumbering bureaucracies into smaller, more agile special jurisdictions – common-interest developments, special economic zones, and proprietary cites. Private providers increasingly deliver services that political authorities formerly monopolized, inspiring greater competition and efficiency, to the satisfaction of citizens-qua-consumers. These trends suggest […]
By John C. Eastman and Stephen Balch American Greatness The COVID pandemic has witnessed the exercise of state “police powers” on a scale and scope unprecedented in America’s peacetime history. Out of fear of contagion, massive amounts of private property in the form of shops, restaurants, bars, and […]
My guess is that the constituents for pan-secession will include conservatives who do not feel they can ever win under the current system but do not want to go down the road of overt authoritarianism, liberals and leftists who have a “better off without them” attitude toward conservatives, […]
Over at the Center for a Stateless Society, an outfit that is probably the most anti-ATS tendency there is (along with the neocons, of course), a writer named Eric Fleischmann makes an assertion which includes a jab at yours truly: We are all thick libertarians now. The question […]
If pan-secessionist sympathies continue to grow (and I do not see America’s political divide ending any time in the foreseeable future), more and more articles like this will begin to appear in the press from all over the political and cultural spectrum, and floating different proposals of their […]
By Frank Jacobs, Big Think America’s two political tribes have consolidated into ‘red’ and ‘blue’ nations, with seemingly irreconcilable differences. Perhaps the best way to stop the infighting is to go for a divorce and give the two nations a country each Based on the UN’s partition plan […]
By Amos Perkins, The Wichitan It doesn’t take more than a quick peek at the news to realize that the United States of America is not thriving. The nation is the most polarized it has been since the Civil War and respect for the country is declining worldwide. […]
