Maybe Isolationism's Time Really Has Come

Four months ago I wrote a post called 'Isolationism's Time Has Come'. Libertarians didn't like it.
According to Marginal Revolution, a French politician named Bernard Carayon has commented on The Great Dead Cat Gambit that,
“Today the actions of American policy makers illustrate the need for economic patriotism...I congratulate them.”
Carayon is wrong; what has been seen is not economic patriotism, but fascism. As a fan of economic patriotism oneself, one's mind inevitably turns to the kind of economic and trade policies that an independent Scotland might pursue. My own view can, of course, be found in 'An Open Letter to Nicola Sturgeon'.

Scotland is not and cannot be independent. It can free itself of the English yoke [whilst still enjoying the benefits] but it is simply exchanging one oppressor for another in the EU by so doing.
