Radical Independence?

WHENEVER THIS WORD ‘radical’ is introduced to the discussion of independence people become suspicious, and rightly so. Back in 2014 the Socialist Reviewpublished a review of James Foley and Pete Ramand’s book, Yes: The Radical case for Scottish Independence, in which the “radical case” was said to cover a “wide range of topics including the rise of neoliberalism in Scotland, mainstream parties, British nationalism, and Yes Scotland’s and Better Together’s respective referendum strategies.” By the end of the piece the reader is informed that the demand for radical independence is based on the success of exotic campaigns, with the examples of Syriza in Greece, Die Linke in Germany and Front de Gauche in France given – all examples of European “left reformist parties.” Radical then, to the proponents of a “radical independence,” is, and by definition, a revolutionary leftist vision for Scotland’s future.
