The Right To Secede by Joseph Sobran

The late Joseph Sobran's brief article may be the best short essay on the the right to secede, an especially poignant topic as the world celebrates the one-year anniversary (July 8) of the birth most recent African nation through secession: The Republic of South Sudan - a country where Christians have been brutalized by their northern neighbors and former countrymen in their mother country.  South Sudan joins the 13 original states of the United States in tribute to the right of political self-determination through the right of secession - which we Americans celebrated on July 4.
