Taking the Low Road to Serfdom

Wallace's Trial (for Treason) at Westminster

Last year The Freeman featured a nifty little essay about Scotland's past and present. It's written by Lawrence W. Reed who is a Scottish-American.

In a nutshell: Seven hundred years after the torture and execution of the Scottish patriot and freedom fighter, Sir William Wallace, a skilled archer, swordsman, and equestrian, 'Alba' has gone soft and socialistic.

Explains Reed, "The romantic, noble image of proud and independent Scots has given way to a very different reality: a heavily subsidized population that overwhelmingly supports political candidates who demand even more subsidies."

Conrast that mentality with Bravehearts's last words: "I could not be a traitor to Edward,* for I was never his subject."

*Edward I of England
