Days of Change

Whiskey Sour | September 18, 2014

The nation-wide vote for Scottish independence from the UK is over and the results are looking like they’ll be hanging around. A fairly desperate fear campaign was waged threatening everything from economic peril to the collapse of the whiskey industry.

I remember the Quebec Referendum of 1995. That vote was close, with just over 1% difference between No and Yes on secession. Being a social animal, people tend not to strike out on their own unless the situation is really dire. Frankly, the economic burdens the American colonies suffered under British rule would not have incited revolution in most countries. It’s one of the things that continue to make Americans unique.
