Catalonia's struggle for Independence is a far too belated venture, if anything. Having escaped the grips of fascism after Franco in the 1970's, they traded one obvious tyranny for a far more surreptitious one.
Political ideologies fail and triumph to the degrees they do because they are not the result of reason. They are always fueled by emotion; especially ideologies which require the frenzy of the masses to execute their most violent features, as in communism, democracy and fascism. Exegesis are created which focus on the sacred element which will tug on a group's heartstrings. The economy can be manipulated if the worker is exalted. The individual can be manipulated if the culture is exalted. When people talk about freedom, they usually mean freedom for one group to make decisions and the rest to stay quiet lest they get what little they have taken away.
Immigration, in an autonomous society, wouldn't simply be a matter of 'open borders' vs 'closed borders.' The situation we have now is a knotty, complicated mess of warring motivations which have nothing to do with a geographic grid or cultural integration. The state is a monopoly which deems itself responsible for guaranteeing accountability between the contract of independent parties; in other words, the state is a meta-contract.
Resisting terror is like trying not to fall asleep. One columnist thinks it is this simple:
'And all over London last night, after the attack, for many hours, people continued to laugh, to chat, to drink, to dance. Not because they didn’t care. Many of them undoubtedly spent many minutes texting, calling, getting in touch with friends to find out if they were safe. But they carried on living their lives. They weren’t scared or cowed by terrorist fanatics who want them to feel burning terror and fear in every waking moment that they have, to steal away their happiness and their security.
What would have been the alternative? For London’s pubs, bars, restaurants, clubs to all empty as their patrons fled home in terror? To bolt their doors, to stay inside, to venture outside only when necessary, eyeing suspiciously everything and anything?
Today, London carries on. It is quiet by London-standards because it’s a Sunday. There are people in the parks. Some have gone for a swim. Others have taken their kids out. Others are in the pub, drinking: I can see them from my windows. Others are watching box sets at home. Their lives are continuing.
Though adamantly denying any plans to run for office, Mark Zuckerburg gave a speech at Harvard, in which he divulged his vision for America:
'we can get a pretty good idea of what Zuckerberg would be politicking for if he were running for public office.
Taxes on the rich would be high. “There is something wrong with our system when I can leave here and make billions of dollars in 10 years while millions of students can’t afford to pay off their loans,” he said. “People like me should pay [for changes].”
