Really funny. 'Strong resemblance to not wanting to be a part or an 'empire?'... 'citizens not treated equally'...in the richest region in Spain? you call 'unwarranted and brutal intrusions' the upholding of the law in a modern legal democracy? You compare the 18th century British colonial empire ruled by a king.. with a modern european democracy recognized by the world. You must be the most biased 'historian' I ever read.
