The right of self-determination, or independence, is protected in the United Nations Geneva Convention, so that right should be given to all peoples and nations, including the people of the South. My definition of nation is the Biblical and historical definition, that a nation is a group of people who share a common ethnicity, history, language, religion, and culture. The Southern people absolutely qualifies this, so they should be given their own nation-state.

I Accept your debate, and am willing to join.

I am guessing Arguments will begin in the Second round, you shall begin and I will attempt to counter, and provide my own arguments for this subject.

I wish my opponent good luck
( Not really, sorta wanna win, so I secretly put a voodoo curse on him )

Well, I guess I should post mine.

Nation
"a large aggregate of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory. "

Along with the fact a majority of people would unlikely to leave the Union, and it would take a majority for such to happen. Not to mention that such Confederate States would be squished like a bug.

Who are these Southern People? They have the same Religion as the majority of the United States, language, and live in the same territory/landmass.

Again, since you are pro, I suggest you post your arguments since I don't have much to shoot at here.

" Article 1(4) provides that armed conflicts in which peoples are fighting against colonial domination, alien occupation or racist regimes are to be considered international conflicts. "
Give me some sources here, I got nothing to look at as well.
