"Even if the 10 October, the head of Generalitat Catalonia Carles Pujdeme in your confused statement is not closed any doors, but this feigned indecision continues to bring to life the ghosts of the past, reminding Europe that a quarter of a century ago, she was powerless to prevent the great conflict in the Balkans", writes Museles.
"In 1991, Croatia also suspended the unilateral Declaration of independence from Yugoslavia (as it previously stated), but then possessed her recklessness, and this resulted in a series of wars and violence in Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, up to Macedonia, which lasted 10 years," the article says.
Whether to consider such a catastrophic scenario for Spain? Many observers still refuse to accept it and make the same mistakes that their counterparts 20 years ago, says the author. "In Yugoslavia, before the outbreak of fighting that followed the announcement of the suspension of the independence process, no one inside the country or abroad could not imagine what growing since the late 1970s, the tensions and the beginning of the economic crisis in the socialist countries will lead to the complete collapse of the Yugoslavian Federation" — recalls Museles.
Of course, the Yugoslav situation was different from the current Spanish: Spain is a democracy, respectful of human rights and peoples in its composition. "But the many points of contact should encourage us to reflect — calls the author. — Protection of local features in connection with the real destructive impact of the economic crisis, developed into the social, led to the radicalization of the Spanish youth (always suffering from mass unemployment), and led her out of patience, as it happened in his time with the Yugoslav youth, which took nationalism as the cure for Communist conservatism".
Thus, the Balkanization of Spain is very real, warns the author.
In a world where the state has lost its self-confidence and have to face competition from the numerous non-governmental players, we should not exclude the possibility of "infecting" other parts of Europe, especially because a number of States led by Russia seeking (sometimes openly) the collapse of Europe. This is the cornerstone of a strategy aimed at regaining control over lost almost 30 years ago territories, according to Museles.
"For each member state the interest in the European project was clear: the European Union national States agreed to give up part of their sovereignty in exchange for total well-being and stability, including the stability limits, alongside the actual elimination," the article says.
"If Europe will not be able to guarantee the stability of the borders of member countries (that is the first outward sign of sovereignty), they will lose interest to be a part of the whole. Without guarantees of the status of their borders, they will recover their sovereignty, and it will be the end of the European project," says the author.
Today in Catalonia, in addition to the future of Spain, at stake is the future of the European Union, I am sure Museles.
