Keith discusses secession movements past and present outside the U.S. with guest J.G. Franklin, an actor, english conversation teacher, and Washingtonian living in Brazil. The trend of the last century is away from empires toward decentralization, with the number of countries tripling in the last century. We start with Brazil – J.G. gives a brief history of the formation of Brazil by mostly peaceful separation, and the possibility of three southern Brazil states going independent today. We briefly cover some of the numerous peaceful national divorces in the Americas, Eastern and Western Europe, and Africa, from Brexit to Namibia to Czech Republic to Crimea. To close we talk about the key to all of this – the principle of self-governance beautifully outlined in the US Declaration of Independence.
