Reply To: Right to Secession


Thank you Brion and John. I think John hit it on the head with my friend when he said “Perhaps your friend is reading strict modern contract law back into the 18th and 19th centuries?”. Brion, your Madison quote really settles it for me. In fact, it now seems rather silly that he would say “Virginia basically got duped” and there was nothing they could do about it without being the bad guys themselves and the instigators of war.
