This blogger, “English Secession”, is apparently throwing in the towel, but in doing so, he makes some cogent points about why it is so difficult to convince anyone of anything that relies on facts and reasoning as opposed to emotional appeal.

The fantasy of the state is pretty much invincible in the masses, as it takes 5 seconds to shout a statist slogan, but 50 minutes to explain why the economics of it will cause a disaster.
