Upcoming: Secession Week Blogging!

June 25, 2009

The Fourth of July is commonly known as Independence Day, but a better term for it is Secession Day.  Secession almost always involves multiple groups of people, some small and local, others large and distant, who want to rule the same territory.  And history tells us that large, distant rulers are often reluctant to grant independence.  The word “independence” takes all the historical messiness involved in winning freedom from a hostile enemy and sweeps it under the rug, while the term “secession” puts this inherent tension right out into the open.

So Saturday, July 4th is Secession Day.  And to commemorate this day, Let A Thousand Nations Bloom is going to host a Secession Week Blogging Event.  Starting on Monday (6/29), we will post a roundup of secession-related links every day.  Some will be original pieces here, some original pieces from other blogs, and some older articles.  This is a brand new event, so I don’t know how popular it will be, but secession is a hot topic lately so we should be able to get a decent following that we can build on in future years.

If you’d like to make an original contribution to the event, write a post next week and email it to us at, or just trackback one of our posts.  If you have a blog or website and find our Secession Week posts interesting, please post links to us.

    It is so interesting, the perceived need to ‘begin again’ to secede, to make things ‘right’. My inquiry into our human nature cannot ignore the self-centered attributes that apparantly continue to cause us grief century after ceentury with little or no fundamental change. And with each new horizon, eventually wasted, it’s nothing the young would see differently than a scab on one’s knee.

    So, where is the way out of adolescence? Is fundamental social change possible? Is this a pathless journey, without preconceived direction, to be realized as it happens? Or, does someone or many have an answer?
