Thoughts on Referendum day Eve(Sept 17th)

  1. The anarchist criticism of both Yes and No continues to be ignored/sidelined by the left wing of Yes.
  2. Wow the Yes side on the ground is immense.
  3. Shocked and disappointed by how many radicals(possibly even anarchists) appear seemingly uncritical of voting yes/RIC/ Yes Campaign. Co-opted left already! Radicals and revolutionaries become/becoming reformists.
  4. The naivety of the reformism being expressed is worrying.
  5. If it's a No the Scottish left will be all but destroyed!
  6. Good to see so many people becoming political minded however. There's more twists and turns in this thing than a fucking pretzel.
  7. Voting is the religious ceremony of representative democracy like Mass for catholics.

Lucy Parsons — "Never be deceived that the rich will allow you to vote away their wealth".

Mikhail Bakunin — "When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called the People's Stick".

"If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal." - Emma Goldman.
