St David of Wales - The Patron Saint of Wales

A Nation has a spiritual history as well as materialist one and of course they dialectically interact  and should not just be seen as opposites but as a totality,

The observation in the video above of Madeleine Gray that the Welsh have inner strength is a good one but it also has a negative side is that spiritual resistance is not enough if you materially want to change Wales and aspire for Welsh Independence - there is no consolation in losing even if we write wonderful poetry about it.

We should ponder on this supposed legacy of St David and wonder if we can ever get beyond it.

Was Owain Glyndwr an aberration ?  can we get beyond spiritual resistance in the 21st Century ?
