If every European separatist movement got its way

Scotland votes today on whether Scots wish to be an independent nation.  As the map above shows, theirs is not the only secessionist movement in Europe.

I don’t know how I would weigh the pros and cons of independence if I were a Scot.  I think that, in general, it would be a good thing if there were more and smaller countries, except for the fact it would give international banks and other global corporations more power to play each of them off against the other.


These eight European separatist groups are totally inspired by Scotland right now by Paul Ames for Global Post.

    It seems like every ethnicity that doesn’t have its own majority state wants one. Its interesting that the Germans of Denmark want independence, I’d think it’d be easier to just move to Germany.

    Yes, corporations and banks are the emerging empires perhaps.
