Recent Praise for the Vermont Independence Movement

Thomas J. DiLorenzo

“Citizens of every state should learn about the Second Vermont Republic which, for several years now, has been laying the groundwork for Vermont to secede and once again become a free and independent republic, just as all the states thought of themselves as being prior to 1865.”

and How To Stop It”

“The idea of Vermont secession has now entered phase two of its life cycle; the world of institutionalizers and acculturators, the people of cash and luxury, of beauty, taste and goodness. The heroic sea captain Capt. Phillips aside, these are the peple whom the outside press seeks out and listens to when it imagines Vermont. And as in the day of the Nearings, those so inclined will also find their way here.”

“The idea of secession is now fashionably hip. It is now acceptable to a wide swath; the avante garde of the middle class (20 percent, they say up here), as gay marriage was hip 20 years ago and smoking reefer was when it left the bohemian cellar club for the strip malls and suburbs, the corporate wives’ luncheons and the dusty stairwells of federal buildings 40 years ago.”
