Excellent as usual. Thanks for helping an American better understand the issue.

I did find this statement from a well educated countryman of Hume a little puzzling:

"Because my view is not based entirely on emotion and because I view the emotional and rational cases to be interwoven, I cannot honestly say that I would be against independence tout court."

Aren't reason and emotion always interwoven?

Thank you!

You've got me there, though - my apologies to the spirit of Hume!
