Independence: Won’t get fooled again

Here’s an interesting reflection on secession, from James Taylor  at Bleeding Heart Libertarians.

I’m particularly struck by his fifth and last point:

“For some people—perhaps even most people—a successful secession will simply mean that they are subjected to the will of a political class that’s different from the former political class they were subject to. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss…”

Taylor’s other points regarding secession leading to a more Statist government also seems relevant to the Scottish Independence debate.
