Dear Friends

1. Please avoid personal remarks & references on the debate.

2. If you disagree with a line of argument, counter it with convincing
arguments.

3. If you feel it is beneath comment ignore it, the best protest to a
ridiculous line
    of thought is to ignore it completely.

My Personal Views on Secessionism:

Freedom of Both The Individual and the Nation are paramount, one cannot
be
compromised for the other. This leads to grey zones where a decision has
to be
made one way or the other, even the most modern of Democracies have not
resolved these contradictory grey zones to satisfaction and these grey
zones reflect
the imperfections of Democracy within a Nation State. Typically these
grey zones are those involving national security and more often than not
where excesses occur.

So what then maybe said to be the final word on this issue - Since the
issue arises in a democracy we should use the democratic rule. Hence the
majority opinion is what should count on every case where the Freedom of
the Individual has to be weighed against that of the Nation. Let the
people decide which one is paramount and which one maybe compromised on
a case by case basis.
