On Show 24 of the Mises UK Podcast, with host, Andy Duncan, we speak with our Caledonian man in Edinburgh, David Farrer, the power behind the throne on the ‘Freedom and Whisky’ blog site. We talk about the current state of Scotland as regards freedom, whisky, socialism, and secession, given the failure of the 2014 referendum to secede Scotland from the United Kingdom, and the rumblings of a second secessionary referendum planned by the Scottish National Party, slated possibly for 2021.
The tenth annual gathering of the Property and Freedom Society took place in September this year.
The uncompromising, intellectual, radical elite of individuals from places as far apart(both culturally and geographically) as Bahrain to Hong Kong, Egypt to Costa Rica came together in one place to discuss the ideas of freedom, mock the politically correct culture of the state’s ruling class and enjoy each other’s company.
Interesting place: I must investigate some more. It may be that more geographic parts of the planet, within the UK, might be persuaded to secede from Gordo-Jaqcistan. Technically, if it was a bit of the United Kingdom, I would be advocating treason, but I don’t somehow think that real soldiers would come after such people, and Shetland is not really part of the UK in spirit anyway, even if close geographically. Only interior ministry troops would be an irritation and a bother, until they starve to death.
Perhaps Daniel Hannan would support a move for people to take citizenship of this Forvik place, if Gordon Brown persists in smirking shallowly, in front of people, about how badly he has done as a Chancellor and also as a PM.
