  1. The Catalonian independence referendum is little more than a sham and a distraction, and I’d hope the people there are smart enough to realize it.
    If Catalonia were to leave Spain, its leaders already pointed out they’d instantly join the EU, so essentially they’d gain very little independence. Kind of like West Texas deciding to secede from Texas, but already applying to become the 51st state under control of D.C. beforehand.
    Given it’s not going to make much of a difference either way, I don’t see people getting into a civil war over it.
    If anything, the EU is probably behind it so they can keep the most productive region of Spain in the Euro zone in case Spain decides they need to get out of the Euro because of its debt problems.

    • At the museum in the Sagrada Familia Cathedral, there are photos of
      the smoking ruins of the nearly finished Cathedral after it was bombed
      by Stukas. George Orwell fought with the Communists in Catalonia
      against the Fascist backed Government in Madrid. Parts of Catalonia
      looked like Barbuda after Hurricane Irma. There was a Victory for the
      Fascists. There was not an end to the Hatred in some quarters between
      Catalonia and Madrid.
      I pray some short-sighted answer to the problem is found,
      and not a situation where “History Rhymes”.
      (ALSO, the Posters from the first Civil War are on display in the
      Catalonian Art Museum in Barcelona)
      P.S. Last year my family vacationed in Catalonia, and loved it.
      We wish the people there only the Very Best!

  2. My Grandfather fled Spain in 1937 after his in-laws were murdered by Republican (NAZI Air Force) aerial bombardment. The Spanish Fascist Republican forces bombed their own people. mostly defenseless civilians. Noncombatants. For this to happen again is a reality as the peoples in charge in Spain in the year 2017 are the same wealth class as in the year 1937. Spanish Civil War: Casualties. Available information suggests that there were about 500,000 deaths from all causes during the Spanish Civil War.
