The NAU seems like a force that will continue to deteriorate our personal liberties as well as drown each of our voices out even further in the discourse of American politics. 

Nation-wide secession seems like a practical alternative to the NAU, and having things shrink to a community level would pave the way for a more direct level of democracy within the states. I think that we are technologically prepared to sustain ourselves if the states were to begin breaking up. It seems as though with all of the dissatisfaction so many of us have with the federal state, federal bank and corporate concentrations of power we should all try and push for secession and the liberation of our state-wide communites.
