Today, there are many places in the world that want the independence from the rest of the country, as they feel different because they have a different language and a different culture. This is the case of Scotland and Catalonia in Spain.
In Spain many people are making demonstrations, in fact, on 9th November, the government of Catalonia carried out an illegal referendum to know how many people want the independence of this community. The results were that the majority of voters voted "yes". However, all that glitters is not gold, abstention was very high, so with this in mind, independence would be only wanted by a small part of the population.
The same happened in Scotland. Most of the population didn’t wish to be independent, but why?. Perhaps one reason could be that Scotland wouldn’t be a very rich country and couldn’t keep up simply with its incomes, so therefore, Scotland needs Great Britain.
Finally, from my point of view, independence has more disadvantages than advantages, so people who are in favor of independence should stop to analyze the situation and judge what is best for their future.
