Independence?016:31, 29 March 2013


It is arguable that there is no such thing as true independence anywhere anymore with large multinational corps operating as private governments. But in regards to whether or not Scotland is a viable nation you had best look to those who stand to lose rather than listening to those who think they will gain. Loss is a known quantity, gain is a hopeful prediction. Look to the resistance from Westminster for the real value and viability of Scotland. Beyond that, assuming independence occurs and is indeed viable, there is a opportunity for real beneficial change. Looking to places such as Norway for examples on how to create a workable system that includes free healthcare and education through college level. (talk)16:31, 29 March 2013
