If we followed this logic logically, there doesn't seem to be any point at which secession would have to stop. Quebec could secede from Canada, the English-speaking areas of Quebec could secede from Quebec, the French in the English- speaking areas could secede, and then of course various families and individuals could secede from the seceding towns and villages. I anarchistically approve; however, I think there would be problems about property, as there often are during divorces.
Isn't the nation-state a sort of liberal concoction?
