Help Please -> US called "Indestructible Union of Indestructible States" Why, Indestructible Union?

US States, can move away from Federation any time. But still it is said, Indestructible Union??

Instead it should be Destructive Union right?? because, when states move away, the Union is destroyed

Can any one please clear this doubt

Thank you

  • If any country starts calling itself a destructible union then it will become one. No state is ever going to move away from the US.
    Rejection is better than a lifetime of Regret.

    I don't think so. Unilateral secession is not allowed in US constitution was what I had read somewhere during recent elections. It is Indestructible Union.

    No,states dont have right to secede.That is why civil war was fought in 1861 when Southern States declared their independence on slavery issue and thus war ensued.
  • W.r.t. recent exchange of certain regions with Bangladesh (no matter what sort of tedious process to amend constitution is there, still country ki boundary to change huyi na) .
    How can we say Indian Union is indestructible??
    Anyone explain please.
    Humanity is above all.
  • @Caliburn that was a sovereign decision to alter territory of india.
    Indestructible Union wala concept federal sense main aata hai (center-state) - states can't declare independence out of india.

  • @Kira does that mean a political party in thumping majority in LS as well as RS may cause some states to secede?
    Then how come 'Indestructible'? Isn't that destructible (Chahe sovereign decision se hi kyun na ho).
    Ye to vo baat huyi ke Something is indestructible, provided usko XYZ cheez se toda na jaaye. Kindly shed some more light on this concept Dear.

    Territory can be ceded by the centre by constitutional amendment only.
    Settlement of boundary can be done by the centre without a constitutional amendment.

    Indestructible Union - the union cannot be destroyed. Some territory may be ceded but that does not mean that India or Bharat, as described in Article 1, stops existing. It continues to exist, with maybe a changed geography or less number of states etc.
    Destructible states - self explanatory.

    Read Laxmikant for more info. For Phd read judgement on Presidential reference in Berubari transfer case.
