Spain is still coming to terms with what the MSM term 'the Civil War' but is in reality more the ruthless grip on power of an utterly amoral central State. The Ministry of Justice have published HERE a map of all the mass-graves of the casualties of both left and right, and frankly it has the power to shock. Of the many hundreds of mass graves, take just one, located at the side of the B10 - the road you'll take from central Barcelona out to the airport this Summer. As the smooth tarmac glides through an industrial estate whose vent stacks are adorned with household names and logos, look down at an undeveloped area, stone field walls, a flash of bright pantiles on the roof of a concrete-drab cottage, a few stunted olives. Here lie the corpses of 1717 persons, deemed enemies of the central State and dumped here after their casual killing.
Below is the first of 172 internet pages that list the victims. When our fathers were fighting WWII, Franco was killing musicians. During the Korean war, he was shooting Glaziers. When London had the mini and Twiggy, when the first men landed on the Moon, Cataluns were being dragged from their beds and summarily murdered.
I cannot stress too strongly the danger of a nation, any nation, at any time, sliding into totalitarianism, nor the dangers that the 'State' comes to regard itself as more important than its citizens. The passion with which I advocate decentralisation of power, oppose the creation of a national police force, promote local administration of policing and justice, and fight the Leviathan metropolitan State and its parasitic political class is just this. Whatever the future brings for our nation, we must never, never allow them to justify the death squads, the raid in the night , and piles of corpses dumped on waste ground around our towns and cities.
