Spanish elites have never wanted to respect the will to be of the Catalans. They consider that Catalonia is not Spain, but belongs to Spain, as the Valencian Community and the Balearic Islands. We belong to them by right of conquest. And a conquered is not seduced, he is threatened, he is exploited fiscally and the language and laws of the conqueror are imposed to him. Therefore, the Spanish leaders do not even try to convince the Catalans of the benefits that would mean to continue within Spain. Within his political DNA there is only the threat and the insult.
