First ew need to look at how we got here.
Over the years I have learned that democracy is not necessarily synonymus with peace, freedom, well-being and indeed most of the time it is a tool that stifles rather promotes these issues. And often when dissent arrises the State interferes inappropriately causing hostility and conflict.
The Scottish referendum for indipendence is a great opportunity to counter these issues.
And more then anything it is a chance for the Scottish people to express their view peacefully and gain full recognition as individuals;
until today they have lived as a "de facto" Nation, denied the existence of a differnt culture, language and customs.
(And if the Scots decide to remove their own politic-burocratic apparatus in favor of voluntary relations between free subjects it would be even better.)
