Scottland has polls showing about half will vote to secede. Three major political opponents are missing important meetings to go and try to convince the Scots to stay under the UK thumb.
What is the purpose of a nation, anyway? To enrich the politically connected? The evidence points that way constantly. Why else would these so-called opponents drop everything and travel on this mission?
I’ve been thinking of this a lot lately. For a tiny instant it was suggested that Iowa secede. Hahahaha. Pigs must run out of milk before they wean themselves.
What would have been the results of The South seceding successfully from the United States? Slavery yet today? Hahaha. Mostly, more people, huh? What if Eastern Ukraine was allowed to peacefully secede from Ukraine? Why is this idea absent from public discussion? To keep families intact? More laughter.
I think nations were conceived to enforce cultural mores of like minded people. Now a nation is used to enslave people to mores that don’t suit them but have become essential to the wealth of the political class. There are victims to laws that preserve a union. And like laws that protect no victim, it is victims they create.
