.....and that dream I mentioned, is more then just a dream.....

 

Remember Tchechoslovakia? Fed up with one another, now they are both members of the EU - after a friendly divorce, witout bloodshed.

Of course, with Havel they had a statesman in their midst, not too many of them around these days.

Agree...The issue of divorce between Czechs and Slavs is a good argument. The difference is that both wanted the diplomatic break after seeing the bloodbath in Yugoslavia. It was a divorce negotiated behind the back of the population because there was no referendum law either. While in Spain, the only harsh weapon is the controversial article 155 of the Constitución.

It is a bit insulting, would you not agree, to suggest that the majority of Catalans are dupes who are being played by corrupt politicians

 

Absolutely. Plus, part of some country may legally, not secede, but at least elect representatives to negotiate their decision with established authority/government. So can Quebec, Cataluña, Scotland among others.

 

>>> The right of a people to self-determination is a cardinal principle in modern international law (commonly regarded as a jus cogens rule), binding, as such, on the United Nations as authoritative interpretation of the Charter's norms.[1][2] It states that people, based on respect for the principle of equal rights and fair equality of opportunity, have the right to freely choose their sovereignty and international political status with no interference.[3]
