  • “We can do it better”—Scotland and the West parallels

    One of the motivators behind the Scotland independence movement is that the U.K. government takes all of the revenue from Scotland’s sizable oil and gas production, with the perceived result that this holds back Scotland’s economic growth. Similarly, many American states are realizing that the federal government’s ownership and control of land (much of it federally owned or seized) is limiting local economic growth via policies that make little sense to local residents. The push for local control is fast becoming a burning desire of growing numbers of people across America — and the world.
