  6. Nearly gave up on it after 50 pages, but than deceided to continue because it had some interesting stuff in it and I rarely ever dnf books. I liked it overall though I had some issues with it. I gave up on "Mobby Dick" twice. My father gave it to me when I was 14, because he thought that I should read the classics instead of just reading Fantasy. I tried it back then and didn't make it past the first chapter. Tried it again several years later and didn't make it past the second chapter. Haven't started reading it since then, but I want to read it one day.

  13. Well it's not just colonies minorities and indigenous people also have rights like a right to governmental representation and to speak there language etc. This is more international self-determination/ certain autonomy. It doesn't really grant them the right to have a state. self determination connected with decolonization, because it has mainly been used in that process and yeah Western states certainly want to prevent the independence of these regions. Christ.. deescalation is needed here From a legal point of view it get's complex there. I bet some, not me though, would argue that sending the military is within Spain's rights. The whole military occupation thing is more about a situation were country A conquers Country B and suppresses the people there. I doubt it would apply to the present situation.
  14. From a legal point of view are partly right. Self-determination is a right and it is laid down in international treaties such as the International Covenant of Civil and Political rights to which Spain is a party. The UN explicitly acknowledges it as well. However, there is no clear definition of “people” so it is unclear to what groups it actually refers. It is generally accepted that the right of self-determination grants colonies the right of independence from their colonial powers and that it grants people freedom from military occupation. It also allows a people to get access to governmental representation and to use their language, but independence is another issue. Catalonia already enjoys a certain amount of autonomy and international law isn’t exactly keen on breaking up existing states. I guess experts on the issue could argue that Catalonia has a right to become independent, but you’ll also find some whole make a strong case by arguing the opposite.
