"It is fear that keeps us where we are. It was fear that crippled the Growth Commission. And it's not a coincidence that I wrote a book about The Courageous State, when I see courage as the opposite of fear. Scotland could do with some courage right now. But so could we all. We should follow the example of Ireland last week and throw off our fears, and constraints and claim the life that we can all enjoy. That's what I really believe. And that's what I am really an ally of." - Professor Richard Murphy.
