My latest is a News & Politics piece on just how truly complicated it is to be an actual sovereign nation, and why Scotland should be careful what it wishes for. Thank goodness the brilliant Katie Racine was able to lend a hand, and the collaborative effort resulted in a great piece.
"The thing about separatist movements is that they sound really great. Who wouldn’t love to be autonomous, free to make their own policy decisions without some other, often times larger government mucking it all up? But like all things that sound too good to be true, the devil is in the details. While it’s easy to sell sovereignty, it’s harder to make it work."
