(Irresponsible)

Not long ago, the irresponsible were tied. With the passage of time the balance has been tilted.

Today, we read the following:

"Madrilenian offensive to solve the Catalan problem: to end Catalanism" (Amat).

"Spain will pay the price to safeguard its unit" (Rubalcaba).

So this question arises: Accept the legitimate aspirations of Catalonia could be the price?

We continue reading opinions and asking questions:

"Álvarez de Toledo is a golden opportunity for Barcelona to renew its open vocation" (Edit.). Could there be other more opportune roads?

In today's newspaper, we also read: "You have to apologize for the empires. But who starts? "(Racionero). Should not it be a decision from one's conscience, without more?


Should Spain apologize for the conquest of America?

And, we finish, reflecting on the reason:

"We are lacking in reason and we have plenty of emotion" (Carol).

"The dream of reason produces monsters" (Goya).

(Fine-tuning the aim)

These are some of the opinions that we find today in the newspaper and some reflections that we can do before these:

First: "Catalonia and Great Britain could exchange problems" (Manley). But, the United Kingdom leaves the EU and Catalonia wants to remain in it.

Second: "Private companies are those that control the Govern" (Silva López). More than the 155 or the fisacalización of the accounts?

Third: "Independence was invented so as not to have to deal with the problems of society" (Pellistrandi). An example of insight?

Fourth: "Besides wondering if the Catalans are going well or badly fucked because of the 'proces', there are the equidistant, not fucked" (Pámies). Poor third roads.





Fifth: "Spain is a portentous and tragic scenario" (R-Domènec). Could we ever be a normal country?

And, the last one: "The richest region of Spain, the most dynamic, is languishing" (D. Secanell). Well, the reliable data shows that the engine has not seized at all.

(Theater or reality)

"Was the 1-O theatrical (farce) or real?" Writes Trapiello. But, we can ask ourselves: Can a farce be so important? On 23-F there was only one civilian support and many shots. In the Catalan referendum, more than two million were able to participate and many others supported it. The 23-F failed, the 1-O is not so obvious.





We continue reading in the newspaper that "Catalunya can not be directed from Waterloo", according to Pascal. And, once again, we ask ourselves: Where would it be better?

"A paralyzed Govern", they tell us from the newspaper's editorial. But, is not the situation exceptional? The legitimate president has been prevented from taking possession and a bicephaly has been preferred. With what intention? The surveys show that the electorate understands the situation.

We continue reading: "Half a century of democracy has not managed to dilute the 'caudillismo' in the collective conscience" (G. Serra). Well, then, it will be that.

(What is the truth?)





Today, a president, Quim Torra, and an expresident, Artur Mas, are protagonists of the articles of opinion and the editorial:

"The government sees aberrant that Torra can have an ideological police (sic)" (Carol). Given this, we can ask ourselves: More than the Spanish?

"Torra should not confuse what is immediate with what is important" (Edit.). More questions arise: And what is important? Would it be to "undo the wrong" of 155 ?.

"But he was very aware of the institutional sense and we should take advantage of his experience" (Álvaro / J. Juan). This is the thesis of the columnists, but was it not Mas who won the independence movement? Second parts never was good...

On the other hand, Pedro Sánchez (PSOE) makes it clear to us that "the 21st century is throwing away the 'that is not no'.

The candidate of the PP, Álvarez de Toledo, affirms that "Catalonia is the least democratic autonomy". Given this, we ask: Is not it also the one with the least weight of the extreme right?

And we end with two more opinions, accompanied by two reflections:

First: "A Puigdemont lacked wounded and dead to proclaim independence. The State did not provide them "(L. Clarós). Would it be possible to proclaim it without violence?

Second: "The truth is now more important than ever" (Carol).

(Pandora's box)

The day is marked by the CIS survey prior to the general elections on April 28.

The brevity of the Republican Generalitat mitificado its virtues. The State of the Autonomies has given them a treatment of simple subordinates. It should not be surprising that before the closure of the State, the independence movement has expanded to the surprise of its own and strangers, as certified by the CIS survey.

The strenuous efforts to neutralize it are not giving the expected results.

"We live in a magical independence movement, the result of Puigdemont's emotional blackmail of the masses" (Amat). Is Catalan society so helpless? Could it be that some pontificate from their arcade with the powdered wig?





The Spanish state has seized, with no alternative but to survive at the expense of a huge Catalan-Valencian fiscal deficit and the generous EU subsidies that have triggered the unproductive spending.

(Toast to the sun)

Today we read in the newspaper five opinions on the Catalan sovereignty conflict, which provoke reflection immediately:

First: "It is not possible to build a stable government with activists" (Pastor) Is not stability based on having enough parliamentary support?

Second: "Self-determination is not legal or possible" (Batet). So what should it be? Often the impossible becomes possible.

Third: "The independent Catalan Republic will never arrive, but a Catalan State within the Kingdom of Spain is possible" (Tamames). Who put the bell to the cat?

Fourth: "The independence movement must rectify" (Batet) Only him?

Fifth: "A unitary independence candidacy is impossible" (Foix). When will a unionist candidacy unite?

With all this, we can raise this final reflection:

Until the reality of the 'proces' is understood, they will go blind. The State should not be embroiled in the law, because it is the problem. When will an offer that makes the independentistas fall from the horse?

(The immediate and important -Carol-)

Faced with the secessionist challenge, the State has focused on the immediate and has bordered on the important. Instead of trying to rationalize the problem has been carried away by emotions, even by the alarmism (Puigvert), perhaps as an atavistic reaction.

President Pedro Sanchez today urges President Quim Torra to "acknowledge in public that independence will not occur."

"Can you imagine some JJOOs with yellow bows on the facade of the City Hall?" (Bou). Can you imagine some JJ.OO that must coincide with the Expo in Seville and with Madrid, European cultural capital? This is not a country, it's a kindergarten ...

"The great scam of nationalism would not have been possible without entrepreneurs, actors, journalists or politicians lending" (Álvarez de Toledo). Would it be prohibited by law?
