Reply to Rocking MrE’s “How Secession Is Exploited By The Left” Re Catalonia
Although I enjoy Rocking MrE’s channel, I think he’s wrong here mainly because he confuses his dislike of the Scottish and Welsh secessionist movements and their respective parties, the SNP and Plaid Cymru, with what’s happening here in Catalonia. I accept his points that the left are a danger to Catalan independence but he is too quick to draw analogies with what happened in the lead up to the Spanish Civil War, which is unwise unless you have in depth knowledge of 19th and 20th century Catalan history. Similarly, the complaint that Catalans want to be part of the EU is overly simplistic.
