The Abbeville Institute has launched a new video series, “Is America Too Big?” The first video is here, featuring the left-wing decentralist Kirkpatrick Sale and the inimitable Donald Livingston, a philosopher of secession who also served as my undergraduate honors thesis advisor.
The Abbeville Institute is a broadly paleoconservative and paleolibertarian organization that promotes political decentralization within the context of the southern tradition. I highly recommend checking them out. Though their focus is on the South, the principles they espouse—the right of secession, decentralized government, and the importance of tradition and place—are applicable everywhere. As a Yankee, I never felt out of place at any of their events.
