screw off, Taco, you shit in a box of gravel
critiques of socialist states based on the idea of a “cult of personality” are fascinating to me in that it manages to ignore the fact the united states desecrated a sacred mountain to carve four of their presidents faces into it, as well as creating a six-star general rank just so george washington would always be the highest ranked general in the u.s. armed forces.
do you have a land redistribution fetish
Hmmm this narrative doesn’t sit right with me
How many of those 146 countries didn’t so much “choose” independence as win it from former colonial masters, colonial masters like, yes, Scotland.
Let’s not kid ourselves that our situation is similar to that of countries emerging from imperial domination. We were the dominators.
And also one of the first victims of English colonialism. So Scotland might not have to fight tooth and nail and wade through English blood in the modern day to become independent, but does that mean that it shouldn’t go through regardless?
Yeah it should, I’m for independence even though I don’t think it’ll make the drastic changes people think it will…
My problem is with a recurrent narrative within the Yes campaign which draws a false equivalence between Scotland and countries which were/are real victims of imperialism – Scotland, as an enthusiastic partner in the British imperial project, was not a victim but a perpetrator, which benefited greatly from the Empire at the expense of the rest of the world. The tendency to see Scotland as oppressed and England as the sole baddies is a way of airbrushing Scottish history and washing our hands of our racist, imperialist past.
What’s wrong with scared? Scared is a superpower.

Listen. This is just a dream. But very clever people can hear dreams. So, please, just listen. I know you’re afraid. But being afraid is alright because didn’t anybody ever tell you fear is a superpower? Fear can make you faster and cleverer and stronger. And one day you’re going to come back to this barn, and on that day you’re going to be very afraid indeed. But that’s okay. Because if you’re very wise and very strong, fear doesn’t have to make you cruel or cowardly. Fear can make you kind. It doesn’t matter if there’s nothing under the bed or in the dark so long as you know it’s okay to be afraid of it. So listen, if you listen to nothing else, listen to this. You’re always going to be afraid even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like a companion. A constant companion, always there. But that’s okay because fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home. I’m going to leave you something just so you’ll always remember fear makes companions of us all.
