A Critique of the Plebiscitary Theory of Secession

Abstract

U članku autori nude kritiku plebiscitarne teorije secesije. Unatoč suvremenim argumentima koji tvrde da je plebiscitarna teorija secesije kompatibilna s liberalnim pojmom države, autori tvrde kako ta teorija dovodi do apsurdnoga stanja, tj. kako njezino dosljedno provođenje vodi prema negiranju uloge države u njezinu konzervativnom, ali i liberalnom shvaćanju. Utoliko plebiscitarna teorija secesije u sebi sadrži negaciju samoga pojma države, a može se shvatiti kao kompatibilna s libertarijanskom, radije negoli liberalnom teorijom države.In this article the authors present a critique of the plebiscitary theory of secession. Despite contemporary arguments claiming that the plebiscitary theory of secession is compatible with the liberal concept of the state, the authors maintain that this very theory has led to an absurd situation. They contend that its consistent implementation leads to a negation of the role of the state in its conservative, but also in its liberal interpretation. In so far as the plebiscitary theory of secession encompasses a negation of the very concept of the state, we may see it as being congenial to the libertarian rather than the liberal theory of the state
