Arrgghh it's so hard to stay at Excellent civil rights witouht tipping over into Scandinavian Liberal Paradise. So then I have to take some civil rights-lowering issue to get back to Democratic Socialists, which puts me down to Very Good in civil rights, have to increase it and that tips me over to Scandinavian Liberal Paradise again :(
Well, Scandinavian Liberal Paradise isn't all bad, is it?
I say this as someone living in Scotland in 2014...
Welcome back Galdago! Great to have you back!
Sure, it could be worse, but Free Socialism should be a Socialism, not something liberal something!
Welcome back Galdago!
It's official Kerla is a devout nation with a drug problem See what happens when you have religious hippies?
Vote yes so Scotland can take its place in Northern Europe ;)
Its rightful place!
I would be voting yes, yes and more yes if I weren't technically still an American citizen (though that does mean I get to vote for Bernie Sanders). I do worry about the scaremongering tactics being employed from London. Of course, as a strategy, that's precisely the way to go: those who are likely to vote No will probably do so out of fear of change, and they're also probably unlikely to educate themselves on what realistically will happen. Most of the movement from the Yes factor seems to be on making information widely available, but if people don't avail themselves of it, it does little good.
Personally, I don't see why an independent Scotland might not be good for England. There would be fewer disgruntled Scots not voting Tory, for one thing.
The quality of debate has been shocking on both sides and if I see another person post a reference to Bannockburn on Facebook I swear I'll f@#$ing scream.
Ultimately though it's impossible to disentangle the economic and the emotional aspects of the debate. I know people who identify as Scottish so strongly that they'd be voting YES even if they believed everyone would be worse off economically and I know people who identify as British, as well as Scottish, who want to remain in the UK for that reason irrespective of whether they'll be better off in an independent Scotland.
Nations are social constructs defined by borders that the ruling classes of old could use to define who they extorted tax from anyway. For the first time ever I'm actually wavering on the question of Scottish independence but I've got a big problem with overt nationalism. The prospect of living in a country that's almost guaranteed a centre-left government for the rest of my lifetime is appealing though. But then again, I'm reminded that not so long ago people probably thought the same in a lot of the Scandinavian countries and the further into the future you predict the more foolish those predictions tend to look.
Let me be WA delegate and Scotland will gain its independence!
