The soon-to-be (of course, non-elected) Spanish King Philip VI defines Spain in his first public speech after his father's abdication:
"Spain is ONE (!!!) nation… ONE (!!!) united social and political COMMUNITY deeply rooted in a ONE-THOUSAND-year old (!!!) history.”
Wishful thinking, I’d say.
And after stating that Spain is this ONE NATION he glibly adds:
His vision of Spain clearly doesn’t sincerely contemplate the actual DIVERSITY of NATIONS within –currently ruled under ONE state and an oligarchy that still insists on denying their existence.
Does anyone still think the Spanish state and Establishment appreciate, serve and give the due respect to the several nations within the Iberian Peninsula they rule?
Does anyone still wonder why THE NATION OF CATALONIA is seeking to have its own state?
