Catalonia’s President ARRESTED In Belgium! – Spain’s Government Defies Independence

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the evils of coercive collectivism following the Catalan independence vote and subsequent defiance by Spain’s government.
90% of people in Catalonia voted for independence from Spain which has been economically dragging down the region. Catalonia is by far the richest part of Spain per GRP (gross regional product). Despite the overwhelming support of Catalans, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy claimed the referendum never happened and that there wasn’t enough voter turnout (despite being more of a turnout than those who came out to vote him in with just over 28%).
This ended in brutality in the streets against anyone who dared to vote.
Carles Puigdemont, the Catalan leader was forced to flee the country and then arrested in Belgium where he has since been released.

Now this is a perfect example of how individuals have no say in the affairs of government unless it benefits the establishment’s ends.
Where 90% of people can vote for something and be overrode by a Prime Minister who only got 28% of the vote as he claims he speaks for all of Spain, it’s just an absolute absurdity.

Government believes a newborn baby has enough sense to magically sign the non-existent social contract and be forced into a collectivist system where 51% rules the 49% under the guise of “freedom” while the government’s jackboot firmly crushes the head of anyone who disagrees.
People are extorted and shoved into servitude.

Government’s main function is to steal, kidnap and kill and people stand there idly by, apathetically saying it’s “for the greater good of the greater number.”

And even as 90% of people vote for independence from that nation state, they are denied. Regardless of the policies of Catalonia, it doesn’t matter. This simply shows how coercive the state is and that the individual has no say. The individual is a slave and the collective under the social contract rules you into the ground.

We will continue to cover this issue. Stay tuned for more from WAM!
