Scots Whae Hae [Apr. 22nd, 2015|10:22 am]
Tony Grist
I'm thinking Scottish independence is inevitable now. The SNP looks set to sweep the country and all the established parties are going on about how the Nats mustn't be allowed to have any say in British as opposed to strictly national politics and how Nicola Sturgeon is the most dangerous woman in the world- thereby insulting and denigrating the Scots and making them even bolshier than they were before.  Personally, I'm not longer sure what the Union is meant to be for- and if the Scots want to live in a pocket sized socialist Utopia I don't see why they shouldn't (actually i rather fancy living in one of those myself.)  I think small nations are the future. We're seeing it all over; the empires and federations are under internal pressure- and likely to bust apart. I don't expect the UK to last out my lifetime- or the European Union. As for the United States and China as presently constituted, well, I'm pretty ignorant about conditions on the ground- but I keep getting these reports...

I don't know which part of the mind this association comes from, but the current Middle East situation somehow brings a recall of the Ottoman empire back into the mind.

The Ottoman Empire got smashed and the victorious powers divided its territories up in a highly unsatisfactory way. Heaven only knows what the Middle East will look like after the present wars have run their course.

Yeah, like reunion of this because of the reason that current borders are a product of European interference into territories they don't have an idea of during at least the last 100 years intensively (in the post-WWII time, also add the United States to it).
