The separation movement in Catalonia proves that even “good” intention can impose a threat to the rest of the world.
As somebody who grew up with the success story of the european union: this is entirely scary. The results of separation movements in europe in the early nineties lead to atrocities not only in the balkan wars.
Distinction, just for its own sake, usually doesn’t have a good outcome and i truly hope there will be a peaceful settlement of this conflict.
The ripple effects of the chaos in Catalonia may be felt far outside Spain.
