Is nullification just a talking point? Or is it a real solution to modern problems? An event in Dallas this November will take on this question.
The secession of 15 states from the Soviet Union in 1991 was the greatest peaceful revolution in modern history. Secession and decentralist movements are firmly entrenched throughout Europe. Discourse about secession and state interposition to federal tyranny has become mainstream in America on both the political left and right. Are we witnessing a paradigm shift away from runaway centralization?
The Abbeville Institute is putting on a live event to discuss these issues. Tenth Amendment Center founder and executive director Michael Boldin will talk about the state of the nullification movement. Other scheduled speakers include Mises Institute President Jeff Deist, Emory University history professor Dr. Donald Livingston, former Oklahoma state representative and gubernatorial candidate Dan Fisher, and more.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10. For more information and to register, click HERE.
