Spain and Catalonia: a guide for encouraging radical revolutionaries!

  1. Actively oppose the Yes vote and make sure that those opposing independence are heard — the only real risk here is that the government might over play the downside of independence and lose respect like the Remainers have in the UK.
  2. Attack the referendum itself denying the voters a chance to voice their opinions, even if the vote is illegal or non-binding. This will in effect be an incredible propaganda victory for the Independence Movement since they can then claim victory without a legitimate vote (a primary strategy of all revolutionaries and Bolsheviks).
