Secessionist Fever - In Silicon Valley?

The New York Times reports Tuesday that Silicon Valley is breeding a secessionist movement . . . Entrepreneur Balaji S. Srinivasan, who is leading the charge, is winning applause by promoting 'Silicon Valley's ultimate exit...an opt-in society, ultimately outside the United States, run by technology.''
 And . . .
One thing is certain, however: the utopians of the Valley will never receive the kind of media scorn that has faced the Tea Party, which is accused of wanting to return to the old Confederacy. What is evil on the right is considered quaint when it comes, openly, from the left.
And I'm quite sure they won't be receiving "scorn" from many professional and academic historians either. And for the same reasons.
