Homage to Catalonia 2

Post by eumaas » 04 Oct 2017, 12:30pm

With the general strike, seems like there's going to be an independent Catalonia soon. Heard word that Rajoy is looking to deploy military on top of the thuggish Guardia Civil. Anybody want to stitch some red and black neckerchiefs and continue our replay of the 1930s?
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Let’s address the real elephant in the room, Barcelona to leave La Liga and join EPL?

On it.

It's amazing the extent that post-Francoism is still Spain's natural go-to. I remember when I lived there, my boss told me that the bureaucracy and civil service is still completely rammed with fascists because its illegal to fire them. They get a kind of tenure after a time.

Never forget your Faulkner: "The past is never dead. It's not even past." It's our supreme arrogance and myopia that we look at the past as something foreign and overcome.
