Dear handful of readers, help me understand here, please.
Catalonia, October 2017
- Catalans have been striving for Independence for decades;
- Catalonia has been violently repressed and had its leaders assassinated under the fascist dictatorship of Franco;
- Spain is a very young and skittish democracy with raw open flesh wounds in Euskadi.
These are very broad stroke premises. Now allow me to indulge in two possible parallel scenarios.
