How Spain justifies violence
“If the right to independent and autonomous life were to be granted to everyone “willing and able” we would be consecrating force as a legitimating element of social life. We would be back to the jungle. Accepting the many secessionist claims that can be formulated inside a society means opening thousand conflicts of tragic consequences, and hence it is rational to act in order to avoid such a scenario”.
This would be, according to the ultra-conservative Asociación Católica de Propagadistas the premise that would justify the usage of violence should an “undue self-determinist claim” be put forward inside the Spanish state.
