📖 Neither an 'economic case' nor any kind of nationalism can justify independence. At best these are weak foundations for statehood. Our case for independence must be predicated on a comprehensive and cogent articulation of Scotland as a nation and our peoplehood, the only basis on which our right to statehood rests.

@Jeggit Doesn't nationalism help give a broad stroke of what we wish our country to be, without drilling down into specific left/right policies that we'd like to have post-indy?
Replying to 
@Murchie It does, however nationalism is a package deal that comes with a lot of other stuff - some useful, some toxic. We can't have nationalism without the toxic stuff. It will always fester in the undergrowth, and the good civil nationalism will only ever be seen to legitimise it.
