    and a national identity. But no, I suspect they don't realize these things because geography and the study of political systems is right up there with other fact based study like science and math.

      Apparently, these secessionists want to get hold of real estate for their new country, and then want to boot out anybody they consider to be "infesting" their towns.

      As far as I know, the people who want Scotland to be independent don't have some racist notion of who is a Scot. It will be a political separation into separate states--not a racial separation.

        But there was this one time when I was there during a soccer game against Ireland.  I had drinks with a Scotsman, an Irishman and a Englishman with a strong cockney accent. Even with the alcohol I didn't understand a word anybody said.  But Sotland may have been more apropos that evening.
