‘The Eclipse Of Scottish Nationalism’ | C. Silver- National Collective

When as Scots, we cringe, it is not because we know that tartan is inauthentic, that Bruce was a Norman baron, or that Bonnie Prince Charlie was as over indulged as Justin Bieber, but because we so often lack the space to tell real stories about who we are and who we want to be as a people. National myths are myths, plain and simple. In Scotland they take on a strange significance because of our current inability to properly shape our present and future. It is only as a result of independence that we will be able to express a modern alternative.
