In this article, I (hereafter: the writer) have argued that the right to secede as a right to territory is multilateral. Next, heterogeneous nationalism will be suggested to avoidance of secession. Moreover, an argument that the writer has called it Martyr Argument is presented against unilateral or consensual secession, and the writer will extend the argument to related topics and questions. As a result, this argument will defend a comprehensive anti-model of secession. Well, what is wrong with secession?
