While trying to determine whether I was more ignorant or apathetic to this infomation, I realized I don't know and I don`t care.

IMHO, Scotland failed to gain independance because the "leaders" felt they had too much to lose and chose to hold onto their land and holdings and allowed themselves to be bribed by the English rather than fight and potentially lose everything.


Scotland voluntarily surrendered independence to join the union (Act of Union), a hundred years after a Scottish king inherited the English throne (union of crowns). Admittedly war was a possibility, especially after the Scottish government was complicit in the mob murder of some English people on false charges just because they were English, but it would have been a war between two countries, not a revolt.

This idea of Scotland being conquered and oppressed by England is pure fantasy and nationalist propaganda.

The closest example I can think of from America would be Texas joining the USA.

The U.S. colonists, on the other hand, felt that if they had to live under tyranny, then all the land and money they had meant nothing.



The US also had a nice buffer zone called the Atlantic.
