The Catalan Independence Movement

I fully support the independence of Catalonia. The reason I say this is because I think I understand why the Spanish government is being so irrational about the whole thing, what with dissolving their legislative branch and police leader.

I’ll explain why Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is being this way. Catalonia represents a full quarter of the Spanish economy. Without it much of Spain would suffer. That’s why Rajoy and his administration are doing this.

That’s all you have to do, follow the money. It explains Spain, Gaza, Quebec, etc. Their host countries will pretty much never let them go because they’re too economically important to those host countries.

  1. Yeah, the ‘follow the money’ principle usually works. That’s why the political classes here in Britain are trying to figure out how not to have Brexit, and why the EU is doing it’s damnedest to make Brexit look impossible for us. I thought when the referendum vote came in that there would be a good chance it wouldn’t ever happen. The corporations usually get what they want (look at the U.S.A.), and they don’t want Brexit, don’t want a Catalonian state, either. Politicians are often just doing their bidding, yes? Not in Catalonia, though. Good for them.
