Dirty Harry Summarizes the Outcome of Scottish Independence Referendum in Ten Seconds

Dirty Harry summarizes a possible rationale why Scots voted “no” on independence yesterday. As I said before, there’s no point to independence unless you’re better off as a result.

  1. Always go for secession. One never knows what the outcome will be, but to pair down a large central State to anything smaller is to be desired. Sure, tyrants may come 10fold on you as your new “government” takes hold, but, the un surety of the transition, not for the individual, but the State, is a plus.
    And, I would rather my tyrant lived next door, I could get my hands on him then, whereas the tyrant 3,000 miles away is out of my reach. I know, I live in Alaska, and DC is over 4,000 miles away.

    • The Question says:

      That’s my sentiment. Those who voted “no” on independence, however, may have done so because they didn’t feel anything would change or actually get worse. It’s hard to say what would have happened, obviously, but from a libertarian perspective they might have been more successful had they offered a substantially different system based on the free market and liberty and not just cultural sentiment. Perhaps when they do finally vote “yes” it will be under freedom’s banner, but it won’t occur anytime soon, I fear.
