The Black Madonna of Montserrat in Catalonia:  Spanish Constitution Article 155 must be "void ab initio"; Catalans could not and would not use mob rule/majority to stop Spanish 'nation' state ceding from Catalan autonomy, if they wanted to (02.10.2019)

 

The Spanish Constitution's Article 155 is a strange creature that must be void ab initio because it purports it can do what it says Catalans can't do, which cannot be (legally) correct.

 

Catalans recently marking of the anniversary of their referendum, with 131 lights across Montserrat (the Black Madonna of Montserrat and all that) is cause for reflection.

 

 

 

 

Madrid claims it can use the mob rule of a majority (recent elections show it cannot always rely on) rather than the rule of law, to force Catalans to remain part of Spain, yet Catalans wold not and could not similarly use mob rule or force to make Spain remain part of autonomous Catalonia. 

 

 

My personal view is genuine autonomy is preferable to whatever independence claims to be on any given day, so I think the correct interpretation of Catalan autonomy is Catalans have already arrived at the true position other so called 'nation' states should aspire to.

I am curious to see what true free market capitalism looks like with a real level playing field.

 

It is common-sense it is a fundamental human right everyone should have the land security of owning some land so they can build their own shelter which is necessary for their survival.
