    Yes, self-determination is something you abhor. That is clear and you are entitled to that view.

    the only way a state were to leave the union, would be when their state powers are being violated or its Citizens are having their rights infringed upon...

    no state is JUST going to leave, because that would be crazy.

    the state of Texas left because the northern states were violating federal law /threatening southern citizens/taking southern property, while the federal government did nothing to stop it, and was violating constitutional law.
