The Spanish government is still trying to block Catalonia's referendum on independence. Are there still some neo-Francos in Spanish politics?

The problem is that Catalonian governor only talks about an utopian independency, he doesn't take into account that Spain has rescued Catalonian economy twice, and also a referendum would only be legal if every Spaniard voted, not only Spaniards living in Catalonia

Pablo, about the first part I am not sure, but your last sixteen words make no sense. It's about the principle of self-determination. If 51% of the people in a region want independence, that law says they should, even if 90% of the rest of the country is against it.

But in the constitution (the one that Catalans voted) it clearly said that sobereignty belongs to all Spaniards, not only to some of them. Also, some Catalans want independence because they think that they could still being in EU. (Obviously that won't happen)

As long as Catalonia doesn't ask anything from Spain, it is fair. If they want any benefits from Spain (currency included though that may not be possible with the Euro) than they cannot go independent based on a Catalan only vote.

And as you said, they think an independent Catalonia would use Euro. That's another reason to ban a referendum only in Catalonia.

I'm not saying banning a referendum. I'm saying a Catalan referendum does not override Spanish sovereignty as long as Catalans require anything from Spain.

Same situation in Belgium, but a referendum about the independence of Flanders is in Belgium political unthinkable.

Some fools think they can create their own state or like being annexated by the dutch. Damn Flemish nationalists ( and dutch unitarists) .

Catalans Spaniards from the same nation. Not so? ( Izigotim)
A different language other than what is important to them a separate entity?
They are almost the same nation (just beginning a separate state), the same religion.
What is important for them all to a nation-state? They just like the rest of the Spanish

Do you think 50% + 1 is a suitable majority for independence? I think that if you are forming a new country, there should have to be a more decisive margin than one that might have gone the other direction, were the election held the next day.

Virus NEDL056GEK00047

It's a deadly virus. It can control your mind and support Dutchiness (sometimes reffered as the Dutch Brainwash). Most of the people living in Netherlands have this virus with them. Going to the Netherlands is a risk to your own safety and health. It's even recorded that victims tried to make Belgium a part of the Netherlands, wich contented failed. It now has infected Warlight players. There's no medicin. To prevent infection you must stay away from Dutch people. So here are survival tips: Never talk to Dutch people.
Save yourself!

It's really weird after world war two self determination was all the rage. The powers that were thought it would end destructive conflicts like WW2 and WW1 happening again. Of course Russia wanted a more pan communist state so I am only talking about the west.

They were seemingly right, there has been no conflict as destructive since WW2 maybe that is because the nations became smaller and it was out of their reach to go on world conquest missions?

I was going to say there are so many people here who disagree with self determination and prefer big nation states or huge unions ... then I remembered what kind of game forum I was commenting on :p

That's right Ska, you know Warlight is just a training ground for evil geniuses planning on world domination? If you get #1 in the ladder then Fizzer invites you to his elite school. If you're wondering how I know I actually got invited too, they just thought a HeadlessChicken would make a great evil genius.

"Fascists sought to unify their nation through an authoritarian state that promoted the mass mobilization of the national community[6][7] and were characterized by having leadership that initiated a revolutionary political movement aiming to reorganize the nation along principles according to fascist ideology.[8] Fascist movements shared certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation,[6][9][10][11] and it asserts that stronger nations have the right to expand their territory by displacing weaker nations.[12]"

And none of this can be ascribed to the state of Isreal ... of course ... Blinkers ON!

The Six Day War was because Arab statements destroy us.
They called to throw the Jews into the sea, and all the world was silent.
So Israel attacked before they will attack her, and she had a surprise factor.
And Israel returned the Sinai to Egypt in return for peace if. So to confuse the brain.
You see the history of Britain, I know Jewish history

They prepared an army, but still did not attack, then attack before it's the planes that land and started the war. What such a problem with that?
So for you you should not ape the Daas because they have not attacked two British?
