Spain Invades Barcelona

Writes a Daniel J. Cohn:

Unsurprising, of course.  This is just short of a full redux of the 1930s’ unified effort to suppress (read: kill) the anarchists in Catalonia for the sin of self-determination.  Also: the Western media’s silence on all of this is to be expected. And condemned.

I’m reminded of Orwell’s description of his time fighting in the Spanish Civil War: “There was much in this that I did not understand, in some ways I did not not even like it, but I recognized it immediately as a state of affairs worth fighting for.” (Orwell, Homage to Catalonia).
