Spengler's enthusiastic support for Catalan independence.

(quote) the Catalans would be foolish to stay. Spain faces an insurmountable economic crisis over the next generation, and the German-led bailout that got Spain out of free-fall in 2013-2014 will not happen again. “Sálvese quien pueda” – every man for himself – is the rational course of action under present circumstances. The relatively rich and productive Catalonians are better off on their own.

Given the videos coming out of Spanish riot police beating peaceful Catalonians who are merely trying to vote, it's already over. Anyone in Catalunya who wasn't for independence will be now. The Spanish basically couldn't have handled this worse if they tried.

At least they only used rubber bullets. Had old Franco been still dictator of Spain, his police would probably have fired live ammunition into the crowd.
