Sociological definition of scapegoat theory
The world owes nothing to Catalonia. Like who do you think you are?
Spain is one of the world’s most advanced Democracies. There are only a few countries that are more democratic. So, don’t try to play the democracy card.
Spain is way more democratic than most european countries, and anybody with a little bit of common sense already knows that. Not even the Royal family is above the Law!
If you believe in democracy, you should start by obeying laws.
The sovereignty of all Spaniards is not negotiable and never will.
If you believe in democracy, you should also follow the constitution.
Bad mouthing Spain, bitching and writing love letters to world leaders only destroys the credibility of Spaniards (catalans included) around the world. (stop bullying Spaniards!)
Stop forcing catalan language on kids, it only promotes hate, racism, discrimination , division and stress.
they don’t need a language that has no culture!
Catalonia will NEVER be independent, get over it.
If you are a Catalan and you feel different from Spaniards,
well, too bad! You’ll just have to live with it.
Example, sample sentence, & pronunciation of scapegoat theory
Catalans have now drawn up a plan of their own, and so far they have been giving the world an example of how things should be done. Patiently, taking action only after their proposals had been repeatedly turned down. Inclusively, relying on the strengths of all segments of society and not rejecting anyone on any grounds. Peacefully, coming out in hundreds of thousands into the streets to declare their determination, showing no hostility to others and spurning every form of violence. Democratically, with their elected representatives acting on the people’s wishes rather than dictating an agenda from above, and managing to bring together unlikely partners from the right and the left in a wide coalition. Responsibly, with most political forces – excluding only those that excluded themselves from the beginning – working to reach a deal and drive the process forward. And with an open mind: even now, the Catalan leadership is offering to explore with their Spanish counterparts every option of a negotiated agreement rather than going for a rash unilateral move. If this doesn’t have all the markings of a velvet revolution, what does?
