Virtual federalism

Arnold Kling discusses Incumbent Politicians vs. the Long Tail.
Instead of coalition and compromise, the solution may be to splinter and separate. Allow people to live in any political jurisdiction they choose. Let socialists self-select to live with other socialists. Let libertarians self-select to live with other libertarians. Accommodate the Long Tail by allowing people to choose their political jurisdiction, rather than have it dictated by geography. That is what I mean by "virtual Federalism."

That could be real interesting, being able to choose your political jurisdiction without moving. Might get a lot more people involved. HT Instapundit
