I would like them to secede or allow us to secede so that each of us can live life how we wish without imposing the costs of our preferences on the other. In simple terms, the coasts have high population densities and are heterogeneous expensive micro-cultures, with vast but low cost, high risk commons. Those of us in the germanic states (yes, that’s the difference) live in low population densities with much larger commons to manage with less wealth. In other words, our personal, economic, social, and political needs are incompatible.

Separate in a productive manner. Or revolt and separate in costly manner.

Civil wars eventually happen. The american civil war is not over. It’s still going on because we HAVEN’T separated.
