A little lesson from Rome

First time hearing of this sub, though i'm familiar with the idea in general.

I'll keep this short: When emperor Constantine saw that the Roman Empire was spending way too much money and heading downhill, he split the empire in two. The parts that spent the money to the west, and the parts that made money to the east. The eastern empire, nowadays called Byzantine, lasted another thousand years; while the west fell within a century.

The longer story is: government spent too much money. Over ~100 years of peace their number of provinces increased tenfold, as did their number of public workers. Soldiers at some point realized its easier to steal from their own people via the State than to invade and plunder, so they kept deposing emperors whenever someone promised he'd pay them more if he were in power. One might even call that a deep state or something. Spending led to inflation. Inflation led to all sorts of crazy economic policies, including price control. Public workers wanted to show how important they were in order to keep their cozy jobs, so they made up more and more rules.

By the time the "barbarians" showed up, the people welcomed the change. The empire had defeated itself.

New here. I like this idea.

I like it because its

  1. Peaceful

I honestly don’t know why more people have no considered this as an option.

The left and the right HATE each other. So much. I don’t get why they want to continue this dance under the federal government.

Hopefully conversations like this happen more.

Did you know that 15/33 Members of the Faroe Islands Parliament support independence from Denmark? There are thriving secession movements all over the world!

Looking at Argentina now, maybe MendoExit needs to be reconsidered?
