Democracy. If the YES vote wins it will be entirely down to those who feel disenfranchised previously now finding their voice, particularly across the council estates in Glasgow, Edinburgh and elsewhere.
The Labour Party believed those who bothered voting would vote Labour. So, in Miliband Oxbridge 'speak,' if Darling and Co called for a NO vote from the Scottish working class they would follow Labour loyally. Why should they? For over 100 years the Labour Party leaders (nationally and locally) have betrayed the working class of Scotland (and England).
Things began to change in 1989 when the Tories imposed the Poll Tax on Scotland before it was cast across the UK in 1990. Tommy Sheridan and socialists independent of Labour fought back across Glasgow, Edinburgh and other Scottish cities. The Scottish working class rose against the Poll Tax and this fuelled the rebellion in England and Wales which culminated in the Anti-Poll Tax Demo in Trafalgar Square in 1990 which ended the tax and Thatcher.
Real democracy is about debate - debate in meeting rooms and halls - and pubs and coffee bars - among neighbours, in families. Real democracy is not social media. Westminster doesn't want 'living' debate. They want Democracy to be a paint-by-numbers exercise that TV and the internet can provide.
A YES vote in Scotland would also expose UKIP - the racist, homophobic, sexist right. They could no longer call themselves "United Kingdom" and with Scotland "independent" what "independence" but more Tory Rule would UKIP offer?
A YES vote in Scotland could bring David Cameron's PM role to a swift end and will leave Ed Miliband a fish out of water. The Scottish (British) Labour Party will find it difficult to retain its prominence north of the border. A YES vote will enable the majority in Scotland to struggle for the best of their NHS without privatisation, the best of Welfare and enable Scotland to be free of Nuclear Trident. It will enable Democracy writ large to determine the future.
In England and Wales a YES vote in Scotland will undermine all that is Westminster, the Stock Exchange, the BBC and ruling ideology that profit is master over people. It will also call into question independence for contested regions in Europe.
Even if there's a narrow NO vote in Scotland, the centre can no longer hold.
The Left can be proud that they've won this position - not the SNP alone. YES or NO, Scotland shows the rest of us that Socialists tirelessly campaigning among the majority, bringing ordinary working people to democracy, have the power for social change. The Radical Independence YES campaign is a source of inspiration for all of us.
