Scottish independence; UK politics 

If you do not wish for a people to perceive themselves as subjugated, they must have an uninhibited right to self-determination.

Denying this agency is an explicit affirmation of their subjugation and must necessarily be a prominent element of any discussion about what is owed between the subject and the ruler.
