Scottish History
History is important to learn from the past and not to repeat the same mistakes. It is important to Scotland as our Anglicised Universities and Colleges are less than sympathetic to our own history. Our teachers cannot teach our children that which they do not know. A country without a memory of its own past has no present and little hope for the future. The past is the father of the present and the present is the father of the future. Labour is openly hostile to history as part of the school curriculum in Scotland, claiming it could lead to nationalism. It has no qualms in prompting British Nationalism at every level. We will do our best to provide articles here and recommend other articles.
Irish History
Most Scots know little of neighbouring Irish history and even less of Welsh history. Yet we are familiar with English history as if it were our own. The reasons for this should be self evident. This is deliberate and meant to foster sectarianism and ignorance. The two go hand in hand. The British ruling classes are schooled in classical history where divide and rule is a classical Imperial concept. This has been practiced in Ireland and to a lesser extent in Scotland. Time to fight back and show sectarianism the door. James Connolly was the greatest Scots preacher to go to Ireland since Saint Patrick.

Forum Rules
All views are the views of the individual poster and not the SRSM, or the forum management. We do not mind anyone having differing views, or politics, as long as they are prepared to be civil. Bad language and personal abuse will NOT be tolerated.
News, history, learning and information. News, history, learning and information. ‘mi-run ṃr nan Gall’ is the Gaelic expression for the "Great Hatred" shown to Gaels and the language. Even educated, liberal, people can show irrational hatred. Witness the British left hatred for the language. "Gaelic, pipes, tartan, shortbread and 'aggis" are the stereotypical reactions to put down anything to do with Scotland, cultural, historical and political. Gaelic speakers are no more against Urdu, Polish, etc, than than Poles, Asians, etc, are to the Gaelic language. The Brit left even try that in their divide and conquer arguments to save the British State. Even bilingual signs brings out the hatred and irrationality. "Cost" is one argument against. How much did it cost in money, blood and tears to extirpate the language? Gaelic place names abound from the north of Scotland to the borders. How the Gaelicphobes must hate our history too. Gaelic is the key to Scottish history, culture and even a place in our future. We need positive discrimination if the language is to survive. We all have to do our bit to turn it round. Hebrew was practically invented in the 19c. Other countries have helped revive their national language.That is one more reason for Independence to restore the jewel in our crown.
