>Don't you agree?
Well, I do agree on him on internacionalism, that socialism in one country is bound to fail and I also share a final goal with him. But reading his post it makes me think that he is arguing that we should stop supporting the independentist movement and start oragnizing for what he's arguing for, wich as I've stated would be a waste of time
>A region can't beat a nation like that, it's actually not pragmatic at all. Am I wrong?
Well, the idea isn't to start a war against spain, currently there are tree major ideas on how to become independence;
1-Trying to get the EU's attention (JxCat)
2-Negociating with Spain (ERC)
3-Unilatery and defending the republic trough pupular support but not trough war
I do agree that it is not an easy thing to do, but I do belive it to be more likely in our lifetimes than what he is saying.
First of all I wanted to remark that your first claim is false: funnily enough its a piece of propaganda started by the Spanish right wing. Catalonia's main Employee's Union (Foment del Trevally) is diametrically opposed to independentism till the point of funding a far right organization like SCC (an attempt to unite Spanish nationalism under one organization) to combat independentism, so that's not even an open question.
>a smaller fascist one
Catalan fascism has always been almost non-existant
>and a liberal one.
What do you mean? the ERC in the past was really different that the one we have currently. When the CEDA (right-wing coalition) won the republican election in 1934 and there was a revolt against the goberment, Lluís Comanys
(leader of the generality at the time) joined the revelion and stated;
<In this solemn hour, in the name of the people and the Parliament, the Government over which I preside assumes all the faculties of power in Catalonia, proclaims the Catalan State of the Spanish Federal Republic, and in establishing and fortifying relations with the leaders of the general protest against Fascism, invites them to establish in Catalonia the provisional Government of the Republic, which will find in our Catalan people the most generous impulse of fraternity in the common desire to erect a magnificent federal republic
Now, it is also important to note that the leaders of the protest were the comunists who established the asturian comune, eg; they suported communists
, wich isn't a thing a common liberal thing to do.
>I want to note one specific catalanist, Francesc Cambó, an industrialist who choose to fund Franco during the civil war to prevent a working class revolution and who still has a street named after him in Barcelona.
Francoist street names are not that rare m8, what's the point you're trying to make?
I agree on the part that CIU (a center-right party btw, not right-wing.) used independentism as a way to get more power.
On the part of CUP, it is evident that in the next elections they will regain power again, speacially afther the way ERC is fucking up lately
