On Thursday, Scotland had an opportunity to discontinue its 307-year old association with Great Britain by simply voting to become an independent nation. This was no small opportunity since Scotland had been joined to Great Britain by force of conquest three centuries ago, and had brooded ever since about that injustice and longing for a moment to break free.

However, as reported in The New York Times (“Scotland Rejects Independence From United Kingdom”),

 

“Voters in Scotland rejected independence from Britain in a referendum that had threatened to break up the 307-year union between them . . . . With 26 of 32 voting districts reporting, there were 1,397,077 votes, or 54.2 percent, against independence, and 1,176,952, or 45.7 percent, in favor.”

 

 

Reuters reported (“ Scottish nationalist leader Salmond quits after losing independence vote”) that,

 

“ Scottish nationalist Alex Salmond [who supported Scottish independence from Great Britain] resigned as leader of his party on Friday and will quit as First Minister of his country after losing an independence referendum.

“‘For me as leader my time is nearly over but for Scotland the campaign continues and the dream will never die,’ Salmond told reporters in Edinburgh.”

 

I don’t blame the First Minister of Scotland for resigning. The “dream” of Scottish independence is dead—murdered by the majority of the Scottish people.

So, therefore, Thursday was truly a sad and terrible day.

I first published this article on November 20th with the title “The risk of being a ‘consumer'”.  Then I made made some significant revisions and republished a significantly “new” article on November 25th with the current title (“Notes on the Coming War Against Consumers”).  

 

Aldous Huxley (author of Brave New World; A.D. 1932) wrote that,

 

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
